    Tongue

    I had an idea for a new section. The Buy, Sell or Trade section.


    A section for registered members to buy, sell or trade items with other members.


    Some ideas for the rules:
    • Filesharingtalk accepts no responsibility or liability for any transactions that take place as the result of a sale or purchase of an item in this forum.
    • Threads need to stay on-topic. Off-topic replies can be edited or removed by a Moderator.
    • Start threads with a correct title.

      Idea for the thread titles:

      [Sale] use in title for threads when you want to sel item(s).
      [Trade] use in title for threads when you want to trade item(s).

    • 'Pinned' Thread titled "Good Guy/Bad Guy" and within that thread members can post their buy/sell/trade transaction.

      For instance:
      CornerPocket=Good Guy
      Purchased xxxxx xxxxx from CornerPocket, smooth transaction, would buy from again.

      CornerPocket=Bad Guy
      Purchased xxxx xxxx from CornerPocket two weeks ago still waiting for delivery. No communication since then.




    We thought that if the members liked the idea we could give it a try.
    What do you guys think?

    How about a minimum post count to sell/trade?

    Yeah, about 1,423

    Ontopic - Nice idea but then you'll have people just going all out to spam to make the post count to sell stuff

    Well, who does then?

    Sorry, but I wouldn't buy anything from people I haven't met IRL, and especially without any backing from the site where the transaction was initiated.

    So then you don't buy off em....its a trust thing anyway. I wouldn't feel comfortable buying stuff from someone I wasn't familiar with on here, so they would probably have a reasonable post count anyway.

    I think that is possible.

    We could help when some problems show up. we could give email adresses for example or other info members cannot see, I dont think we should make IP's public @ any time.

    What good would an e-mail addy do? I've got a thousand of them, and almost none can be tracked back to who I really am.
    And, just out of curiosity, what other things do mods see (except IPs)?

    I think that the most likely transactions would be between trusted members anyway...but its nice to know if people have stuff, then it can all be done via pm.


    As for spam, that can be cleared up as it crops up.
