I'm definitely in favour of 'Marketplace' forum. But it'll probably need more policing. It sure would attract those unwanted spam.

That's really easy to do in the forum settings. People with less than a certain number of posts would not be able to post to the marketplace forum, but they would be able to send a PM to someone who posted something for sale.

That would stop anyone who isn't a normal participant in these forums from posting there, but it wouldn't stop them from buying. However, I want to repeat what I've said before. This forum doesn't have this problem now, so there's no reason to hold things up while worrying about problems we don't have yet.

The Buy, Sell & Trade board is now up under the Features category.  This new board can only be seen and accessed by members who have 3+ posts.  I also assigned kesheng as moderator.  Kesheng is my friend in Guangzhou China. Since this is a Chinese coin forum, having someone understanding the coin market in China will be very helpful for this community.  The most important part is that he is able to take care the forum while I am sleeping.   :biggrin:

Thank you for all the inputs!  I will ask for your help if I got any problems on SMF.

I only trust 'Snowball'. And think we need someone as a middle man for any $ related transactions. Otherwise, problem may happen....soon or later...

Thank you! Thank you!   :001_smile:

qwasty and poconopenn are right about the new board.  It works just like classfied advertisement.
