Marketplace Sub-forum?Follow

Hey guys. I was thinking that we should have some sort of "marketplace" section in here ready for retail release, just until an AH or Bazaaring gets worked out perhaps? It probably would get real messy and time consuming if it was all in one thread (you'd have to look around too much, and in the end it might already be sold).. so how about like a marketplace sub-forum per server forum or something? Anyways, this is just a small suggestion so leave your opinion and if it seems like it could be useful, maybe we could get it to happen. (:

btw, is there a better term for marketplace that is actually used in FFXIV? haha.

Well, that place is quite dead.. but also the problem there would be that it doesnt have any seperate server forums.

The trouble with adding forums within forums to forums after forums under forums is that sooner or later it gets unwieldy, forums get abandoned, and it becomes **** near impossible for the admins to keep track of everything that's going on. If it's just intended as a short term situation until SE improves the functionality of the existing systems, I would think that the server forums themselves should be perfectly adequate for that type of thing without having to branch off into another subforum.

It's only dead because he just started it this week. If you looked, you'd see there are subforums for every server.

Okay. I was just thinking that people would more often follow-up on some simple rules if it were on it's own subforum. For example, editing your thread indicating you've found what you were looking for, or if you have no more stock on something.

Hmm, I did look. But I must've missed it then. I only see server subforums for the introductions...
