Market Place???

Postby badfinger » Thu Aug 28, 2003 10:01 am

Hi, Pappy.

On a number of occasions, over the past few years, there have been members wanting to buy, sell or swap bits of gear, CDs, books...

There have even been instances of altercation resulting from posts 'advertising' such things in inappropriate forums. (I'm referring to genuine members 'ads', not the odd spamming attempts that crop up.)

Might there be a need for a forum specifically for this purpose, titled, as I suggest above, "Market Place"?

The deliberate 'spamming' intrusions will still be as identifiable as they have been, and can be dealt with accordingly, but there might be good use made of such a facility.

Hi, Pappy.

I'd forgotten that was there. One spends such little time on the main pages, these days.

Perhaps a "watch this topic" (or forum) feature would be helpful, to check when there is a new post in a forum. Ideally, tracking would be selectable by the user.
