We've had a Discord server for a while, but now we've opened it up to folks who aren't members of our fantastic community forum. Join our discussions by clicking the "Discord" button on the side menu!!
As a forum member who's been here some years but with no responsibility or involvement with management of the site, I couldn't see what you're suggesting as contravening any of the trading rules as linked.
I am wholeheartedly in support of rescuing usable stuff from landfill, and have done so on a number of occasions. The best ever was rescuing a load of PCs / Monitors / accessories out of a skip from a company that was having office renovations done.
I got permission first and thankfully spotted it all before the building waste was put in with it...
I'm sure a mod will be along soon enough to give you a definitive answer.
Thank you - my initial thought was as I wouldn't be asking anything in return it's not strictly within a dictionary definition of trade, but I'm conscious of the overarching spirit of trade restrictions here (for good reason) and good community management.
It's amazing what some people throw out. It's actually quite fortuitous as I've been wanting to build a homeserver for a while now! Plus it's saved me shelling out £200+ on a U-NAS. It's crazy that I could throw a GPU into the Optiplex destined for the bin and have a nearly free gaming rig.
I abhor waste as well, so any useful gubbins I can get into the hands of people who want them I'm all for. Plus I very much beleive in simple acts of kindness.
