LH (innit, that bloody expat in France) and I have been thinking about setting up a 'For Sale / Swap / Want, forum. It has been sanctioned by THE GEEK.
We were wondering whether members would think this a good idea. We are at the basics on this idea at the moment, but this is the ground work so far.
Obviously we have to have limitations and strict rules to abide by to protect all members.
A summation so far:
* The forum is strictly computer / electronic focused (no food, clothing, pets etc)
* Member posting is established (senior) 200 valid posts or above
* The sale / swap is within the same country (unless agreed by both parties regarding postage)
* The items are described in an honest way (as new, fair, WORKING)
* NB; we will monitor and mod this as best we can to prevent spoil / spam etc
Now to the nitty gritty (payments / delivery)
* Payments by bank credit transfer unless otherwise agreed by both parties
* Prompt feedback with the transaction
We feel that this could be a very good idea for members in this economic thunderstorm.
It would be great if you could give feedback on this idea.
Also if you do give feedback, please give us an idea what you have currently up for grabs, as it were.
