Forum Change Ideas

bobabricksbobabricks Vancouver, BC, CanadaMember Posts: 1,839
I have a couple of ideas to enhance the use of this forum, I don't know if anybody is gonna listen to me but I'm gonna say it anyway :P

First: split the market place into two sections: Americas and the over seas part of the world, this can make it easier for somebody to find a trade/sale near them so they don't have high hopes and then find out shipping is gonna cost boogles. Just filters it a bit

Second: I can't really think of anything else, this forum is pretty perfect (you honestly don't know how lucky we are to not have 3 year old trolls), but if you can think of something that needs changing comment below :)

    Given that Brickset is a UK website, then surely America would be in the 'overseas' section?
    ;o)

    Just sayin'...

    The "over seas part of the world" is not place with cheap shipping to any other location within it. You would need sections for every different location as well as all the combinations and exceptions. Putting your location and where you will ship to in the title should be sufficient.
    Your second idea, however, is brilliant.

    I guess the 3 year old trolls are still in the Duplo forums. ;)

    If it is going to be split, it should be split like shopping - UK, USA/Canada, Rest of World. It has been suggested before, and the argument is where do UK trades that are willing to ship to USA going to go? In both?

    So my vote would go for keep it as it is, but state location and where you are willing to post to (which many people already do).

    I do think the marketplace has become unwieldy but splitting it in by region would IMHO be worse for all. Even if you split by type (sale/wanted/trade), we'd pigeonhole those who were offering more than one option.

    I only said over seas because I don't actually know, is there a name for the UK/Asia etc.? All I know is that the side of the world with north/South America is called the Americas. I'm sorry for any offense.
