Hey there, I have a suggestion for mods/admins. I have seen on other sites previously before settling here at GZ that there is a forum for buying/selling and trading. I am suggesting this as something to think about as many people (including me) would like to maybe trade or sell and buy of a good site rather than go to TradeMe, as with websites and forums you can usually grab a bigger audience to what you want to buy or sell.

Thankyou and Regards,

Great idea... i have mooted the idea of an ad-board before, primarily for wanted ads, that TM doesnt do.

Regardless of the method used, I think something where the ad automatically expires/deletes would be good, otherwise people will be responding to old ads...

This is an interesting idea, and I spent sometime on this... The problem is how to make sure only non-professional interested parties participate. We don't need a place for spamming the group, etc.

Also, a lot of people visiting web sites have no idea what the web is all about, really. Many times I receive e-mails from people asking how I am going to provide warranty for a phone they bought on a Telecom store, or asking us to stop sending SMS to their mobile phone when they should contact the operators directly.

Obviously some people think that the first result on a Google search is the solution for their problems, regardless of "Geekzone" eing the name of the site, not "Telecom" or "Cingular"...

The point is that I can imagine people buying things from a forum post and then coming ask us (moderators, administrators) about support, warranty and other stuff...
