A sepArate "Wanted" forum?

Post by RichSBV » Sun Sep 05, 2004 10:18 am

Does anyone think it better to have a sepArate "Wanted" forum? That way all sales would be in one forum and anything "Wanted", or being looked for would be in it's own forum...

Rich:

I like the idea of a seperate Wanted section. You might also consider using the graflex.org forum's headings to further seperate out the for sale / want listings (so if I want something for a Graflex Reflex camera I look there, if I want a flash item, I look there, etc.)

Just my .02

Thanks Mike. That's our first official "not me" post :lol:

I personally think a wanted forum is a good idea, but I'm not sure if we need more than one?

Since this is a new idea that may work or not, maybe we'll try one and see how it goes? If things work, we can expand.

The major difference between here and graflex.org is message life. Since this board is pretty much for classfieds and wanted's only, there's no reason to keep them any length of time. Right now all messages expire after 30 days. And that may change on how things go.

So for now, I'll create a 'wanted' forum and we'll see how it works out.

At worst, we'll get no people here, or far too many and I won't be able to afford the upkeep (storage space and bandwidth)... Let's hope for a middle ground :)

Thanks for the input!

Hey, guys - the word is separate. Hope the webmaster will clean all those titles up! :twisted:

Yes, I think a separate forum for that is appropriate.

Well, how about telling the "webmaster" (Admin) exactly what you think should be cleaned up??

We're new and constructive criticism is always welcomed!

Sorry to confuse you guys. Again, the word is SEPARATE. Everybody has been misspelling it. Nothing sinister!!!!

Ohhh, so you were just pointing out the fact that I can't spell :oops: , no one else noticed, and I didn't install the spell-checker option for the forum...

Well, someone's gotta keep us on our toes :lol:
