    i noticed that not many people use the classifieds and i wonder why?
    is it because many dont see it in the forum? do many know about the
    link on the sidebar?

    should the link on the sidebar be removed and a new posting in the
    forum be started for buying and selling stuff?

    personally i would rather have a place in this forum to buy & sell and
    i think it would get a LOT more traffic.
    Yes, i think a Buy/Sell thread in the forum would get more traffic
    No, it should be left the way it is

    Except the reason for the forum is to share free information about scrolling not to sell things Bob added the classifieds after a few requests. Not to mention the possible liability FC would take on if they started allowing sales on the forum. It has already been discussed and cast aside...

      how is a forum held libel for something a person sells or buys?

        I think you need a 3rd voting option -- "There's a classified section???" :-)

          We may not legally be held accountable for something someone else is selling, but the editorial team felt that a strong distinction between the forum and the classifieds was important. There's an implication of approval if we had a buy/sell/trade area on the forum. The classifieds, where you have to go to a different area, removes that implication and makes it seem more real.

          That said, if you post something in the classifieds, feel free to post a link on the forum saying "check out the new classified ad I posted." If the classifieds get more traffic, I may end op revising that statement, but for now, to get traffic to the classifieds, I think we'll be ok.

            I should have read the responses BEFORE voting.
            Please pull my yes for the forum vote. I would leave it the way it is.
