Should we split WTB and WTS into 2 forums? (in Debates)


AdminShade May 31 2009 7:09 AM EDT

I myself have been wondering this from time to time when looking through the FS/WTB forum.

Should we split this forum into 2 or do we not want this because FS/WTB forum already is a debatable forum itself?





in favor: better overview of either forum when you want to look for something to buy or sell
against: the forum as it is now currently already is an abomination. Splitting it would cause more problems with it.

I think it is better to just leave it as it is. Since it is not too hard to see which ones are WTB or FS. Also there are trades as well I suppose they would fall into WTB, but they aren't as clear cut. Some people are selling and buying things in the same thread as well. It really doesn't seem like it would do that much splitting them.

I wouldn't complain if the FS/WTB create new thread page had a drop-down or something that let you choose "FS", "WTB" or "Other" and the thread would be "FS: Blah", etc. If "other" is selected, then it wouldn't say anything.

Just an idea.

I think the current setup is fine. There is really no difficulty scrolling through as people put FS, WTB, WTR, WTI in their thread titles. It is pretty versatile as it is.

We're not splitting the forum.

like 3/4 says, all you have to do is put FS/WTB/FI^ or v, easy stuff
