Wanted adverts

Postby jingle » Mon Jan 06, 2014 10:02 am

Hi jingle - Can you place your 'Wanted' request in the Market please.
It is free to do so.
Currently our policy is no For Sale or Wanted notices in the Forum (see User Agreement).
Thank you,
Site Admin.

Isn't the idea to get the most posts on the Site as possible? So wouldn't it be easier than all the messing about with newbies and oldbies posting "incorrectly" if there was just a Category for Wanted and Selling? The other coin-op sites I've seen don't seem to have any issues doing it that way? I rarely if ever look in the market myself other than noticing expensive bandits in the thumb-nailed photos at the top of the screen sometimes.

If I wanted the most posts possible, I'd remove the Spam filters. !WINK!

The Market is one click away, the same as any category in the Forum and images posted there appear above all the Forum pages, so it's just easy to visit (or not visit) and bandits would be no cheaper (or more expensive) if they were advertised in the Forum.

Currently the policy is clear and it's no Wanted or For Sale adverts in the Forum. If I decide to change this, I'll announce the change prominently.

There's a huge difference Dave, how often do the members here get into discussion on the Market pages? I've never seen any, only the occasional post in the forum? So is that the trick, post in the Market but then talk about it in the Forum? The whole reason this is an interesting site is the amount of usuful and non useful info that gets dredged up. How else would you have found access to my plans for the Bollands Stereo machine if not for posts on the forum? Imagine all the other great stuff users here haven't coughed up yet.
