I've been checking it on the odd occasion, I put up magazines, but no-one showed interest, so they all went on ebay. In all honesty though I am trying to cut down on my buying and hoarding. haha, saying that I do need a couple of bits for a PS3 I just bought :)

Well it certainly looks like trading /selling etc has died a death finally, the last post was 14th of December prior to this one ,which was actually posted by myself in answer to an availability question.

On here, yes.
You can sell a lot easier on the Facebook sites and most of the time someone will collect it, which saves a lot of hassle.
More than half the stuff i sell i trade into CEX for Vouchers.

It seems so.
A lot of the regular traders have left unfortunately.
It hasn't been updated for a while. I think Fire breather maintained the feedback scoring but that's been removed now.

Sadly looks like it - with the drop in numbers I guess it was to be expected. That and places like Shpock to sell on / cex doing retro (badly).

I don't really have anything gaming related to sell and the non-gaming stuff I'm trying to sell at the moment I've just put on local Facebook groups to try and ease the hassle of selling.

I've not visited the forum in ages, it always seemed to crash or freeze, so I gave up. Don't think I've really sold anything for quite a while, it remains horded away in my cupboards and loft, :lol:
