Classifieds ?
« on: January 05, 2021, 03:19:28 AM »
Hi,

Why about a classifieds section ? I'm saying this because I have a ton of stuff that I'll probably get rid of soon. I guess I'm not the only one.
A dangerous idea that almost makes sense...

Hi,

We'll look at it and discuss it and make a call....

Personally (just my opinion here not speaking for team) I think it is an area we should steer clear of...

If did go down that road it would in my view have to come with some pretty heavy disclaimers about entering into a transaction and that having nothing to do with here (the site and its owner etc) in terms of legal stuff/payments/goods being supplied as described (or at all)....personal details etc

Bit murky IMO....not sure want agg......but lets see how team feels.

Fair enough. I'm an admin on a Facebook forum where we posted a disclaimer and asked for prices to be clearly displayed.

I agree it's opening a space for potential trouble so you got to be ready if you allow it.

Yeah, it worries me a bit. Might be better done via pm, maybe, after listing your items? Let's think about it some more.

I think it is not a great idea. It could lead to a lot of hassle. There is always Fleabay. At least buyers are protected there

Agreed on the hassle. Although buyers are protected by Paypal. Buying on eBay or on here doesn't make much difference if you pay with Paypal. And I'm pretty sure many of our members never bother to browse on eBay.

We have a relatively small forum here anyway, I doubt too many deals would be conducted ...

Given that the rest of the internet seems to have deteriorated into one massive capitalist nightmare, it would be nice if this part of it didn't IMHO.
