TRADING POST forum revisited

TRADING POST forum revisited

Postby fourseasons » Sat Apr 20, 2013 8:33 am

As a Mod for the TRADING POST forum I've been monitoring the current subforums there for some time. Based on observation of listings over the past couple of years, and wanting to improve ease-of-use for those posting and searching ads, the plan is to consolidate the DOG EQUIPMENT, HUNTING SUPPLIES and MISC subforums into one subforum. Our Admin has given the OK, however we need a good descriptive name for this consolidated subforum... "Hunting and Hunting Dog Related Items/Services" kinda hits the descriptive mark but is maybe a bit too long? It'll do for the meanwhile...

We'll keep the DOGS FOR SALE, HORSES and HORSE EQUIPMENT, and BIRDS and BIRD SUPPLIES as separate subforums, as they are.

A reminder that if you use a link to your kennel and/or service website in your TRADING POST ad(s), please be sure to have a link back to GDF on the referenced website - our ads forum is FREE to our members, so having a reciprocal link back to GDF is a "win-win" - thanks! We have some website code you may copy to include a link (or a button with link) on your website page, I'll work on getting that info posted in the "sticky note" at the top of each subforum category too.

Oh, another reminder - when you advertise in the TRADING POST forum check your ads and PMs frequently, and please edit and mark SOLD somewhere in the subject line of your original (first post) ad posting when your item has been sold (or even given away/gone/found, etc.) - makes it much easier for Mods to search for a specific word to find items to be moved into the ARCHIVE folder, and helps us keep the TRADING POST ads current! We will also move older ads into the ARCHIVE area from time to time - if you're looking for something that's no longer listed, check the ARCHIVE.

Many thanks to all of you who use, and enjoy, GDF's TRADING POST forum!!!

I think it will fill up with trainers offering services and will be harder to sift through for sale items.

Hmmm... we're not changing any of the posting criteria for the TRADING POST, just combining the less-used HUNTING SUPPLIES and MISC subforums with the DOG EQUIPMENT subforum. That will add guns/hunting clothes and misc. items such as art prints, books/videos, etc. together with other dog-related items. Those last two subforums haven't had an overload of activity in the past couple of years so they shouldn't significantly impact finding things, and should make it easier for those type of items to be found in the TP forum.

Maybe use KMACK's idea modified to: HUNTING/DOG RELATED STUFF

"Stuff" covers a broad range of things :-)

Sorry about my previous post that was out of context. This is what I was referring to when I was saying it would fill up with trainer services.

It's done - the MISC and HUNTING SUPPLIES subforums have been moved into the old DOG EQUIPMENT subforum - all are now 'reborn' as HUNTING/DOG RELATED STUFF FOR SALE. Check it out, buy something! ;-)

FWIW, items older than 6-7 months with no activity were also moved the ARCHIVE.
