My suggestion to the site would be to have the trades section split into buying and selling so buyers can go to sellers forum and vice versa to do business instead of sorting through who is doing what.
Although I like this idea, I feel a simple solution would just be to tag the topic title starting with [B] or [Buying]/[S] or [Selling] and such.
Any other thoughts on this idea?
I like having them all together, it opens up a lot more options with less effort. plus people title their boards with what they intend to do anyway, so i say leave it.
I also think it's easier for someone to just see everything on one board instead of having to go to two. Also, the user may just intend on selling something, but ends up seeing something being sold by someone else that they like.
I prefer the combination of both in one thread. Makes it less cluttered and you don't have to keep up with 2 threads.
Maybe add the "Buying", "Selling" and "Buying/Selling" as a default prefix so people can easily catch whats going on the thread
But yeah, do not separate them on different sections... That wouldnt smart!
Maybe add an thread tag like people already use, but make it involuntary. Like [BUYING] and [SELLING] with an option to view only buying and selling threads for the section.
I like the idea of thread prefix. This would make it a whole lot easier to distinguish between buying and selling thread. Also, even a [BUYING/SELLING] thread prefix.
i like the idea because sometime's it get's a little bit confusing ... at least when people wanna buy stuff they have options or you can do it this way
Buying section it can look something like this :
uc's for sale *New*
