    Itrader mega thread

    It's kinda sad seeing the SPAM section consist of almost exclusively itrader threads.
    If the itrader threads were condensed into one place, it would be easier to find the spam threads that are meant for conversation.

    That wouldn't work because the reason people use spam for iTrader from the Group threads is because presently iTrader requires a forum thread created by either the buyer or seller for the feedback being given.

    A megathread for feedback would essentially be the same as the Group threads that currently don't allow feedback to be left for them.

    We are actively working on a solution for this though, and appreciate the thoughtful suggestion!

    That makes a lot of sense, thanks for explaining! I've never traded so I didn't realize that a new thread was needed.

    Would a separate sub-section specifically for itrader threads in the trading section be something that is possible?

    I don't think having an "itrader thread" when trades are done is productive at all. I know sometimes trades take place when there aren't specific threads that may have been used to advertise buying/selling. I've had this happen plenty of times. Usually I will just pick a thread that relates similarly to what I sold - or if it's really out of the blue, I'll just put clraik.com in as the deal URL.

    The purpose of having a deal URL is so that it can be reviewed later and users/staff can see what went down and what it originated from. A basic clraik.com when no specific thread was used is just as good and would save on a lot of spam. I occasionally mention that to people just as a little suggestions too. I agree it is kind of lame to have a bunch of spam threads for an itrader deal, makes no sense logically there haha
