Hey guys,

 

We have a lot of sales going on in the classifieds section i was just giving everyone a head's up to make sure people leave feedback as you can imagine we run through word-of-mouth so if you leave good feedback new members will sign up quicker and buy more or sell more great items!

 

Thanks guys ;)

Also, it'd be nice if everyone who uses the forum would stick around to offer advice and just generally keep us ticking over, the more people we have helping out the better :D.. it's what we're really here for.

I know for a fact I ant going anywhere this forum is probably one of the best I have come across (and I have been a part of a few even owned a couple myself) it’s so laid back no one is looking for fights the staff are efficient and helpful (I ant just saying this becuase I am a mod :D)

 

It is a shame that members just use us for the selling opportunities then move on, I feel used.... -_- lol

 

I don’t know if it would be counterproductive but maybe you could put a restriction on the classified section where you need a certain amount of posts to be able to create a topic in that section

 

That would stop people coming and going but I guess there would be more replies like "lol" or "yer" one word replies just the get the posts up

 

Oh well it’s just a thought :)

its something we have thought about restricting post count, but from experience from other forums like you said people just spam then post or dont even post at all and tbh we want the sales that means there more is stuff for you to buy! :)

Yes, we have spoke about it before and come to this conclusion - as much as I'd like to do it many people will just post 1 word answers or make pretty much useless topics. We could then introduce minimum words for a post but then it could get annoying for those of us who do regularly use the forum and where a few words is a sufficient answer.

 

We just have to hope people appreciate what we're doing and visit the other parts of the forum too.

 

But like I said we've got something coming down the line which hopefully will boost us a bit :)

what about a time limit for people being able to sell things? like a few days or something.

members who DO use the forums productivly would be fine and unaffected and people who come one, post a topic in the wrong place and then only sell and leave can't do that anymore.

what about if they were selling multiple guns and gear? im not entirely sure if we would be able to add a time limit as well?

 

keep posting your ideas we do take things on board ;)

But you got to think some of these things you are saying can not be done like recive a PM wel thats all well and good but how can you tell the system when this user recives a PM they can post on this section??

 

Now i have done a bit of website work before and you carnt do that kind of stuff (that i have come across) short off changing the CSS code which will require some know-how

 

And the time thing will REALY put people off do you realy think a member will wait a week for somehtin thay can sell on a differnt site?

 

And like Top-Dog said it might not even be possible and certainly not worth it

 

The only thing that can be easily implemented is the post rank system but then again you wil just get spammers and this means 90% of the mods time will be takeing up by deleteing one word replys

 

TBH i think it ant worth all the trouble

 

I would just stay the way we are now, yes poeple come and go but the ones that we really want on the site are the ones that stay :)

I've decided to add a 1 post restriction on using the PM system, should stop this happening hopefully.

 

Will also mean people will hopefully say hello before using the classifieds section and not contributing.

ive been scouring the rorum for a few months now. have noticed alot of people only join to sell or buy or they have a problem which is fine but it would be good if members didnt abuse it eg a user joins up gets thee problem sorted then never comes back.

 

however i have done two topics this week and neither got replyedto dont know why and this isnt a rant but maybe an unsure answer is better than no answer.

 

on a motoercycle forum im part of they have a rank system

 

1 being learner rider

2 being passed a cbt

3 being restricted license

4 being full license

and 5 being professional rider

 

so you start on 1 then ever 50 posts u gain a rank

and tada when you rank at 5 you can post for selling properly ie motorcycles.

 

however it may put people off and they dont join at all

It's a good idea but unfortunately quite hard to implement. We are not the only airsofting forums about, and since none of our competition do this, it'd more than likely kill us since people will just go elsewhere for free.
