Gun sales

15 posts in this topic

Hi, I think the gun sales section should be split into to catergories as its very hard to find your gun. I know there is a search button but its just so much easy in catergories like other forums have done.

maybe.

 

Rifles and sub machine guns

 

Pistols

 

Sniper rifles

 

Shotguns

 

Others

 

It's just a suggestion

 

Cheers

Nailed it. When we have regular members of the community wanting what you've suggested then we might. At the moment though I'm not too fussed as I want the discussion forums to be more popular than the classifieds (which they currently aren't)

Rather than the above, for the guns section, I'd like to see it split into something like this:

 

Electric

 

Gas

 

Spring

 

That covers everything without being so specific, and it'd do the job, it's not like you're going to have a massive problem wading through the thousands of springer pistols that dedicated airsofters use in order to find a sniper rifle...

devastator, 2 pence worth...other car forums im on, you have to have 25 meaningful posts(not just a silly reply) before you can post a sale add..

worth a thought??

site then dont become like a free ebay.

its moderated, and once you try to post a for sale add, your posts gets looked at,and if your flaunting the system,you get reset to nil posts..

It would increase spam and it would be a lot of effort for mods and dev to check everyone

It's tempting but I'd still rather just make it dead easy and hope people appreciate it and stick around. If they don't stick around then they're unlikely to make the effort to build up valuable posts anyway.

exactly, plus you may get this happening:

person x goes and creates account here to sell a rifle he doesn't use anymore, notices other areas of site, sticks around and becomes a regular member.

that can only happen with the sytem we have ATM otherwise this happens:

Person x creates account, finds he cannot sell yet, so leaves the forum and sells it on Forum Y and then joins there as a regular.

Did you read my mind!?

I joined to sell my SA80 because Aron recommended to sell here.... and I stuck around O.o

I have to admit, I like this forum but it was confusing at first in comparison to Zero In, but I'd been used to that specific one...

Glad you decided to stick around. If I go on Zero In I'm usually utterly baffled with how things are set out - just depends on what you're used to. 2 & 1/2 years on here means anything else doesn't look right :P

Well it all boils down to what we're used to after all :P

I like it here, it's different to Zero In.

For the last few days i've been using this to sell most of my gear( as most of you have probably seen) and thats why I joined, but after I'm done with selling im definately not going to dissapear as i've found that this forum is interesting, informative and very easy to use.

just a link to the original post...won't you know that an MP5 is an SMG and an M700 is a sniper rifle? or that a M4/M16 are assault rifles?

That's also true but he's talking about putting things in categories because they'd be easier to find not because he doesn't know what things are.
