Trading forum

Would people be interested in an official trading forum for buying/selling/trading their games?

It's something that has been mentioned many times on the forum. Almost exclusively people have been very interested.

I was just thinking a sort of swapshop would be great, I have a few Amigas/SNESs etc that I'd like to trade for other systems I've not experienced.

*listens to Imagine lawyers screaming "FOR THE LOVE OF GOD, NOOOOOO!*

I think a rejig of the forums in general would be good, frankly, seeing as people continually post in the wrong ones.

The Retro Gamer magazine forum (merge Feedback and Q+A)
It's all about the games
High scores
Blast from the past
Off topic

Oh, and how long are the ad forums going to stay? World of Warcraft has been there, without a new post, for almost 18 months. It's just crazy. You could also just pin the shop stuff within the Retro Gamer magazine forum, especially the eMag one, which hasn't had a new post in over half a year.

It would proberly be a good Idea, theres too many people 1 posting in the off topic section and All about the games section peddeling crap so Keeping it in one area is a good idea

(the Warcraft forum's locked, LOL)

Craig's idea sounds just about perfect - especially the Q+A section doesn't make much sense as things are.

And a large portion YES for a trading forum... take that, eBay!

Some new suggestions for forum arrangements:

- It's all about the games
- Off Topic
- Yehboth's top 100 of everything that ever has, does or will exist forum
- Dudley's and Opa Opa's 'your wrong/your an idiot' forum :wink:
- Genuinely scary user pics forum
- Amstrad haters forum
- My XBOX 360 is f****d forum
- Shaq Fu forum

Any other suggestions, possibly at least one insulting me I would have thought :)

Great suggestions.

We also need..

Is Gamestation still selling retro? forum.
I love SEGA Saturn (contains nudity) forum.

These two forums would reduce the number of posts in the It's all about the Games forum by about 75%.

Do you think we could hire Chris Tarrant and maybe have it streamed as a LIVE show?

First thread: How to spell "you're" ;)

Should we not merge the Blast From The Past and Off Topic? I don't see the point in having two separate areas for these as they're essentially the same thing.
