Not sure whether this in the right thread. Does anyone know why when I tried advertise my Sanyo VTC5000 video recorder on Gumtree that my ad was removed because the item isn't allowed?. Nothing is mentioned in the list of items you can't sell on there about not selling a VCR, and I have advertised other items in the past like my old desktop Dell monitor, plus old camcorder tapes, but up until now I've never had any problems like this. These sites are getting ridiculous with the rules.
This is what it said: "We believe that this ad is offering something that we do not accept on Gumtree."
Does anyone know? There other similar machines on that site for sale, so I don't know what the issue is with the machine I tried to advertise.

Well without seeing the text etc. of the ad then how can we judge.
Yes. There are vcr's for sale there but any betamax/betacord ones like yours is ?
Otherwise just let Fleabay be your friend
Well if you left the 'magic' word Betamax out of the ad then that could explain it. I found some that list with both words to avoid any technical/wording confusion.
Pet peeve #168. Most people incorrectly think Betamax is the Beta format* and don't know was Betacord is. I applaud you for correctly stating your Sanyo VCR is a a Betacord, Beta format machine, not a Betamax. IIRC, Sanyo VHS VCRs were V-Cord.
*Betamax is only Sony Beta VCRs and videotapes. Beta is the format.
