except for the one "hard to get along with" guy lol. blush

Like I said, I voted no but I'd support it if and when it goes through which I suspect it will.

With that said, I am a bit curious. When I made my post, I expected several people to say I agree with you and several to try to convince me that I should change my vote (I have done that before). No one has said either so now I'm wondering if I'm missing something. Why would a dedicated trade section be better than what we have now but with a trade icon added? Seems you are going to limit your audience by using this given what I said before. Am I wrong? I'm open to consideration and a change in my vote.

John:

I kinda figger it like this...

A trade can be of just about anything RC-related on either side which frankly wouldn't necessarily fit in any of the established forums. I would think that a SIMPLE catch-all forum for now would be easier to find with the traders concentrated in one place instead of splattered all over the Classifieds. It would make them easier to find not to mention cutting down on cross-posting which to me would only confuse the issue.

I think simply...my wife says simple-minded. I don't think it's the same...but I digress. This just seems to me to be the simple solution for the time being and I don't see enough WTTs at this point to warrant their own separate forums as of yet. That can certainly change if it comes to that but this is a place to start.

How's that?

I agree, WTT needs a forum of it's own, the FS/W Forums would then become FS Forums, (anything for you Mark).

Thanks Mark,

What occures to me is that I've focused on the trader not the other party. You mention the other party and with that in mind I can sort of see why it might be good. If I like trading and have "stuff" but no idea what I'd like to get then this may be a good place to go.

Ok, I would agree to this as long as you can also post it in at least one other place. For example, I have a Trex I want to trade. I would post in trade forum and again in the heli section (cause this is where the heli guys are). If I could do that one simple cross post which I think is allowed per present rules then I'd be for it. What do you think?

Cross-posting in the FS/W forums is allowed "within reason". Having a WTT forum does not preclude that. It simply gives the user base a common forum for WTT that does not exist at this time.

Yea, I had only considered this from the view point of the person who knows either what he is going to trade or what he wants. In the case of someone who has lots of "toys" and may want to try something new but has no idea what, I can see this. As long as we are allowed to cross post (with in reason of course) at least once then I will change my vote.

Ok, changed to Yes as long as we get a WTT icon added too. I still think this is more important than a new forum

I'd love to see a wtt forum. I've traded quite a few items on here and had all good experiences and according to my rating, the recipients were happy to. Heli freak.com added a wtt forum to the classifieds section and I believe it has been a success.

Please add it as I think we really need it.

Admins: Would it be possible to get a WTT button along with the For Sale, Wanted, etc. buttons?

I have the same opinion. In fact, I'd say the WTT icon should be additive rather than a replacement for 'For Sale' icon. In my experience, nobody ever has refused an offer for cash for something he wanted to trade
