Suggestion: "For Sale" Forum Category
Posted by AmpLighter on Saturday, April 11, 2020 10:34 AM

I've noticed that the forum doesn't have a for sale category and was wondering if this could be create with the support of fellow members. In this instance I've just acquired 3 rolls of 24 awg wire. Each roll is a different color. Red, Copper and Green I'm not looking to sell each roll but a group of strands from each roll. Not sure fellow members would be interested in this wire, But If allowed I post more details in the newly created for sale category if created.

The problem with this forum is that unlike many others, this is part of a business. They rely on advertisting and if we were buying and selling between ourselves, that might cause issues with the advertisers.

In short, ain't going to happen.

It's always been the policy on this forum to not sell or trade items in plain view. 

Sure, it goes on all the time, but it's easy enough to do back channel. 



 Modeling is an excuse to buy books.

And that quite likely, they do not want to be involved with the hassle of deals gone bad, etc. They are having a hard time enough just keeping the forum running in general; I doubt they have any interest in moderating trade disputes. There are plenty of other modeling websites with buy/sell forums. This isn't going to be one of them.

New to the forums here, and I was wondering the same thing.  I also belong to another forum called RC Groups, and they have a for sale/wanted section, as well as advertisers.  In the end, it's up to the owners of this site, but a for sale section would be nice IMHO.
