I am one of the folks that like the concept but worry what it will turn into, I’m almost of the school of thought to keep stuff personal between folks via mentioning something here and there. Once an official section gets formed it drags out all sorts eventually and ruins the close knit atmosphere a smaller forum like this has developed.
I have never had any issues buying and selling on some of the larger forums, but that doesn’t mean a thing nowadays. There are all sorts of con artists out there who are happy to make a quick scam and run for a few hundred or thousand bucks and then everyone affected is jaded and angry for months. Also, all the folks who spam adds come out, that sucks too.
There is a little bit of trading and selling going on behind the scenes, It’s a nice place here, I would like to see it stay that way for all. I wish us luck whichever direction we head in. I know there are several folks here whom I would exchange money with and NOT have any issues or stress over, and whom I actually would be happy to offer first shots at etc. I would almost prefer a closed system if we did anything, just for the “locals”… IMO is all.
