"Qualified" yes. Since this is an open forum we need to work out detials to avoid any potential abuse by "unwanted" visitors.

I suggest we worry about problems later. As long as the traffic here is so small, any problems will be small.

7 votes in 2 days!   OK, enough to make me work.   :lol:
The new forum will be for Members Only.  I will get it set up within the next couple of days.

Since you start this thread and probably will make me busy for a while, do you mind to become a moderator of the upcoming new section?   ;)



Any suggestions are very welcomed!

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

Most of the people here right now are well known dealers or collectors with good reputations. I think if people make their own deals here, they'll either already know each other, or they'll be able to get references.

Other than that, I think it's the responsibility of the people involved to make sure a deal is good. I don't think the forum administration should endorse or enforce transactions. Ebay does that already, and the whole point of a marketplace is so people can connect with each other without Ebay.

I was under an impression that "marketplace forum" should be similar to newspaper's classfied advertisement. Any transaction ought be done outside this forum. It will be sellers and buyers responsibility to work out the contract and has nothing to do with this forum. Anything more than that, my vote will be "No".
