    This way keeps it as only one thread with adds and ZERO chatter to wade through. Otherwise it will turn into just another lengthy thread that nobody wants to read through like the Eaton swap thread.

    No bumping unless editing for changes or sold.

    Iím open to the idea and I think Bob has the best suggestion. It is hard to weed through the chatter. If the existing sub categories were used, with a statement up front that itís a trade, unless itís moderated, the chatter would continue.

    Talk it through a littl more here, but I think Bob has the best idea. All the details are handled off-line, directly between the parties.

    Agree Mary

    One of the best ideas yet.

    1. The person who put up the post must edit the post with the results and or outcome( agreed in terms of forum use).
    2. Deals handled off forum via PM, email or phone.
    3. Nothing for sale, just trade( possible cash thrown in, up to parties in trade negotiations)
    4. NO responses to post accepted.

    I would love to see all forums & websites with for sale sections - have specific trade sections.

    Sometimes we have things that don't move as fast as others, maybe you have one or both parties short on extra cash etc etc.

    Most of us have other stuff and interests as well outside of the MM world, so trades wouldn't necessarily have to be limited to car stuff either.

    Anyone making a post would be free to be as specific as possible about what would be acceptable/not acceptable for trades etc.



    It was time for a new signature .....

    Here it is .....
