SAU's first attempt at crowd sourcing a solution.
This problem is two fold - we have two distinct issues but both can be addressed together with a good solution.
Wanted To Buy section. It sits below all other For Sale sections and people end up posting in the For Sale section. How can we promote the use of the WTB section and make it easy to use for all?
My ideas (just ideas, not right or wrong) include;
Allowing WTB in For Sale. This will water down the actual FS posts.
Having WTB as a sub section of For Sale (moving it to a link above the FS section).This, but with a 'latest 5 posts' displayed in For Sale.
SAU have wonderful business traders who provide both SAU and SAU's members with major benefits.
Business traders are restricted to posting in their business forums (which they have moderator access on).
Business traders really need more exposure. We need to make sure the traders get as much exposure as we can give them.
Allowing traders to post in regular For Sale sections
Allowing traders to post in regular forums (ie, somebody asking about what turbo to buy, a trader could suggest one of their products)
A list of 'latest trader topics' on the top of the forum.
This is open to suggestions/opinions by anybody. Even traders. Have your say!
Best suggestions (as judged by the community in a followup poll of best posts) will get a little SAU pack sent out to them (containing something like stickers and lanyards - and maybe more.)
I will close this thread in the coming weeks and move to a poll.
