    Hmm Trading threads :/

    So it kind of bothers me that people list like 2-4 trading threads at a time and bump them so that people get bumped off the first page of the trading forum so fast. Right now there are 6 people on the first page that have more than one thread open. Would it be easier to limit people to just one thread? Or maybe have sub-forums for different things? Like randoms/unregs, pets, items, etc? Since people want to make different threads for those anyway. Just a thought

    People are allowed a max of three trading threads. I personally completely agree that sometimes one or two just aren't enough, especially if you are selling wildly different things.

    I agree with the fact that one person can pretty much bump 2-3 people off the front page because they have that many threads.
    but if people cant click the next button to look at page two's active threads then we have a problem.

    and I think sub-forums is a tad too... much?
    more then one forum should be more than enough.

    @Kylae & @Cody

    Thanks for your opinions
    You're right, it might be too much having sub-forums.
    Just a little frustrating to be bumped so quickly to the 3rd or 4th page and have to wait 2 or more hours to get back to page one
    But I should be thankful we have such an active trading community

    I think merging threads would be best. 1 thread per person. You might have all these "wildly different" items, but there's nothing limiting you from stretching your first post and even adding another one with a different section. Would make trading a lot easier. A subsection for quicksales would help, that way if a person doesn't have a lot of stuff to sell (Like 1 account), they can make a quick topic and that's it, to abide by the 1 topic rule.

    Just my 2 cents anyway.

    That's a good thought! I like the quicksale subsection idea
    And I agree, tons of people put all their items/accounts/etc in one thread and do it very neatly, efficiently, and it looks nice. It is possible

    One or 2 might not be enough... however it would be nice to differentiate between products. An NPs forum vs an items, vs an account, vs a neopet. or maybe just cash v NP... :/

    My only argument against this is that there really is nothing keeping a person from putting a divider between accounts and neopoints. Having 3 topics because your selling Items/Accounts/NPs just seems like a waste of space.

    more than one helps in a lot of cases. For example yesterday i needed $4 pretty quickly, so i quicksold some stuff and had the money within 10minutes. Had that been on a regular thread something like that would not be possible. I think three is perfect because it allows for one main thread and a little bit of room to work with the other two spaces.

    ^This is true, but then did your thread get deleted afterwards or left to get buried? Sorry I didn't see it. Because many people are doing "QUICKSELLING, SELLING TODAY!" and are still bumping it up after 3 or 4 days :/ I think a Quicksell sub where the topics could expire or be deleted or something would be nice. I do agree that trying to sell something quickly on your main thread isn't usually possible.
