Buying/Selling/Trading
16. Mar 2005 at 10:23
 
This might seem an odd suggestion, but could a new forum be set up, containing one, locked, thread simply stating that such activities aren't a part of this site?
 
Otherwise, new people are innocently going to post about the subject in other forums (as happened yesterday).

The moderators are currently putting together a FAQ type thing which will outline what this forum is for and what it's not for.
 
More news when I get a spare minute!
 
Cheers,

Sorry to bump this but I get the impression that a buying/selling section is not wanted by the members here? Or is it the other way around?
 
I personally think it would be great, I and as I am sure many other PT fans here are always looking for certain items to acquire or add to our collection. I mean it may be a great way for some of us to get some releases that we have been wanting or to even trade amongst us.

Correct.
 
Though more to the point, I get the impression it's something the administrators are unable/unwilling to want to take on.  The PTF isn't a democracy, and what the members want is of limited relevance (which is as it should be).

Far too many complications.
 
For official releases, there's eBay.  For unofficial concert recordings, there's PT-Weeds.  I strongly feel both should be kept out of the PTF.
Not that I get a vote. Wink

Well I wasn't trying to imply eBay or a bootleg site. I meant if actual people here had official items to sell and or trade amongst other members.

So did I! Wink
I still think it'd be too open to abuse & dispute - it'd need very careful management, which is an unnecessary hassle for administrators.
 
Maybe this is something for the new, improved and shiny ROABP?
 
 
And PT-Weeds isn't a bootleg site. Wink  Its very purpose is to put bootleggers out of business.

I see where you are coming from and you got an idea there, maybe ROABP will open up a section of some sort in the future. Smiley
