For FreeCycle, the rules are that you have to post to give away something before you can get something from someone else. After that, it's basically whatever. You post for example: Offer: kids' toys in Oak Grove, KY, in the subject line, then in the body, you describe the item and when you would like to have them picked up by. People reply to your email and then you can give them your addy or phone #, or arrange to meet somewhere. You can also post for items you want. And when someone is picking up an item its: PPU: kids' toys in Oak Grove, KY (PPU means pending pick-up), then Taken: Kid's toys.....etc. They should have sent you a couple of emails about the rules. Anything else you wanna know?
