    I thought I remembered reading recently that these were no longer allowed. But I searched and couldn't find any mention of it anywhere.

    So does each item require its own thread or can compilation sale threads be posted?

    This thread details the marketplace rules update.

    To answer your question the rules change basically prohibits many garage sale type of threads because the items are not related.

    What is ambiguous regarding access to the Marketplace forum?

    Ambiguous meaning "related" items is very much open for interpretation.

    And I did mean in the marketplace forum.

    Sorry, I thought I was answering a different question - I had two marketplace type threads open at the same time.

    Yes you are correct about it being open for interpretation.

    I asked about this privately awhile ago, as the rule seems pretty clear. The moderation team seemed to be targeting resellers rather than a person who occasionally sold stuff they'd already used.
