How long is a piece of string
I have looked at this site a few times and it would seem that it's not getting used a great deal. Why ?
Is it because there is a section on the main forum (wanted and for sale )
So i was thinking lol, do you think it would be better for admins site if the wanted or for sale thread took you straight to the auction site.
Or maybe keep the wanted bit unless this could be put into the for sale site, i don't know.

I'm just trying to find a way of keeping Admin busy as the bees are asleep now he needs things to do :biggrinjester:

I think it would be noticed more if it was at the top of the page instead of the bottom.

I'm sure if we all put our heads together we could create more work for Admin to make the Auction site more noticeable :D

Don't think it will make any difference if it was slap bang in the middle of the forum,seems to of gone wrong.

It should be working with the amount of users this forum has.
Maybe because little gets put on there. I have a idea :D if everyone gets something and puts it on there for sale no matter how small it should give it a kick start.Also it needs to bee more noticeable it don't catch much attention there, maybe a banner style at the top of the page or at least something that stands out.
If we all agreed to put something on there at a certain date that would give it a bulk amount of for sale goods to start with .

Thoughts please

The problem with that is first getting people to agree and then acting on it instead of just talking about it.

I suggest you go for it wightbees as things are seldom achieved by committee and when I had bits on it early in its life it worked reasonably well and even sold something to a chap not from the forum so it was found by at least one person not on the forum.

Whats the deal with the auction site, is it part of this forum, eg run and owned by Admin, or owned by a 3rd party who happens to advertise here?

Because your bid was under the reserve it will not show until another bid was placed.

I have just entered a bid to show you how it works.
