I agree bring back the old one but make it for people who have donated to the site

bring back the old thread. If we're paying TM fee's we can at least afford $10 membership and sell on here.
I bought stuff from here because I wasn't going to get a duck and sold stuff because it was a fair price.

I look on this forum out of interest for all sorts of things that interest me to do with hunting and fishing.
To go to another site and learn how to navigate, sign on, buy , sell pay other fees just doesnt interest me.
The old buy, sell, swap just suited me to have a quick peruse while on here. I have had a look at the new site but really if you are serious about searching for an item to buy through the net, its quicker / simpler to search ebay or TM.
If it returned here I would be happy to pay a % buyers / sellers fee

I agree - please bring back the old 'buy and sell' section.

(Anybody else got problems posting a reply and getting a message saying that you are 'spamming'?)

The new section is as dysfunctional as the Christchurch CBD.

I have added all the ads to it to ad blocker so I no longer see any mention of it.

I don't really care of the old section is brought back.  If this site doesn't want the traffic then it will go to other sites, the new forum, gunstuff, trade me or whatever.  If this forum doesn't want that traffic then the others will gladly have it.

I also vote against putting it in the donor section as less people look at it = less bu yers which is the problem with the new section.

I no longer intend to donate as I have in the past as the recent discussions proved that this site should pay for itself.

I'd love to see the old thread reinstated! open it only to donor members and I'm sure it will pay for itself 10 fold.

Why?

Surely you have missed the point.

As Massive said eailer "If this site doesn't want the traffic then it will go to other sites".

Why fix what wasn't broken.

I see a post that had a link to the new forum with a free buy/sell section got deleted and it also got removed from my previous post when I quoted it Sad

Ironically it was done by a moderator who is a member on the new forum.

So what rule did posting that link "break"???? The website in question does not sell anything!! However they do offer a buy and sell section the way it used to be.

Jealousy or fear perhaps? We are all grown ups aren't we?

Back with the old one i say. Its far tooo much of a mish opening up a seperate website when im already on one with a buy, sell, etc section.
Unless the whole forum gets behind it its a waste of time as you will never get the traffic through it.

If a concession is to be made I'd be happy with the old section coming back under the donor section. I'd guess Alan would get more money to cover costs by having more donor members. I'd imagine people wouldn't mind making a token once a year donation to have the service.

I'm in the process of selling my house and no doubt will have plenty of stuff to sell or give away soon. It would have made it onto the buy/sell section here had we had one. I'm not going to put it on the current one however in its new format as its too much hassle and no one appears to use it.

Just two weeks ago I threw out a large wheelie bin full of old Rod and Rifle, NZ Outdoor and NZ Guns and Hunting mags because I couldn't give them away. The other forum doesn't have many Southlanders on it so didn't bother there. If I could have I would have put them on here someone locally from here could've got them.

For what its worth, my vote goes to bringing back the old buy/sell forum. Had a look at the other one but lost interest straight away.

Well looks like this thread was a waste of time... clearly the people have spoken but no one is listening  Shocked Shocked

Surely the new site is costing money rather than making any in its current state???

Time will tell if its a waste of time. Maybe something will come of it , maybe not.

But at least it gives you an opportunity to have your say. And since it is a privately owned forum , the ultimate decision rests with the owner , not the users - no matter what they think.

We can only hope that Allan takes heed of the poll results , and the comments from those who repond.
