Is it possible to sell old MU cameras and lens and benefit the forum financially at the same time?

    Couldn't you just sell the gear and then donate the proceeds?

    I sold a tripod once, telling buyers that they would make a payment to m-43.com for the price and to me for the shipping. My theory (true or not, I don't know) was they they might pay more if it was a donation and they would be getting the little recognition icon.

    I initially tried to make it an informal auction in the buy/sell forum but Amin showed up and told me that auctions were not permitted, even for his benefit!

    Ya I have an E-300 that is infrared converted for sale in that forum. If someone buys it I was thinking I would definitely sign up for the $5 yearly subscription to the forum to help out. Certainly MUCH cheaper than the fees eBay charges these days.
