    Default Suggestion: for sale/gear exhange section on forums?

    Any thoughts to a "for sale" section or "gear exchange" where we could post gear we want to sell or trade with others? I know there's eBay and craigslist, but I'd prefer to let the MWO forum readers have first dibs on anything I want to get rid of.

    I would imagine it would be a post, and then users could send private messages back to the seller, so we're not clogging the board with "how much" and whatnot.

    Just an idea, don't flame me!

    I like the idea of dealing with members of the forum opposed to the Nigerian scam artists on Ebay. But you run a fine line of getting overrun by people selling goods.

    Check with Darren, Alan and Dave on VFTT before jumping into this. They've had problems in the past leading to having a policy against this. Then again, RoT opened it up recently and there has not been an onslaught.

    RoT has a message on their front page that says it's a restricted community; perhaps that's why they haven't had problems with this.

    Sounds like a great idea to me. I've got a brand new pair of skis and bindings I'd like to sell.
