So why doest siege have a trade thread? (discussion)

Discussion in 'UO Siege Perilous' started by imported_archite666, Dec 11, 2007.

  1. So if all the other shards have trade threads why dont we? I mean he have 10 times more active people on our boards than any other shard, I mean its kinda annoying to have to bump your selling thread on top of discussion or trashtalking threads all the time, doest make sence to me. We have a very active community on these boards so it would make more sence to have a seperate thread for our trading since our economy is spread out and we need a strong source for trading. Just my two cents, any comments?

    We pked the trade forums when it first came to Siege and ran him back to the prodo shards.

    The Siege Forums is the Trade Forums!

    Excellent idea...I second that notion

    Being new to Siege I find it very difficult to not only outfit my char but to properly price items that I buy and sell.

    It comes down to high visibility. More people visited the UO Siege Perilous forum
    than the UO Siege Perilous Trade forum. Traders just chose to not use it.
    If you do not use it ... you lose it. Please live with it.

    I recommend increasing the number of threads per page. *nods* 40 is a good number for Siege. You can do that in your control panel.

    8% of the shard wanted to keep trade only
    78% wanted to keep trade/general mixed.

    You'd need to have lost an awful lot of the old timers and picked up an awful lot of folks who want a separate trade forum...

    I like the integrated forums because i go over to like the nappa trade forum (much less populated shard than pac or atlantic etc) and theres only 5 pages of posts for the last few years, you would lose alot of visibility to the shard to because people are only going to go there everyonce in a while to browse or if they need something in particular,

    where as on this forum you get full visibility and maybe someone who wasnt looking to buy may end up buying. just my 2 cents (but dont be fooled its really worth a million)

    Like others said, we tried it and it just didn't fly.

    As a buyer, I never looked at the Siege trade forum. Maybe I'm just lazy, who knows.
    As a seller, I know that more people are going to see my thread if I post it on the main Siege boards than if I were to post it anywhere else.


    I think what it really comes down to is this: Most people who play on Siege are already established here. They already have all the things that they need, and only really purchase things when they see a good deal. These people are not actively looking for things to buy. They aren't scouring the trade forums looking for stuff, but if they see something posted while they are browsing the regular forums they might bid on it.

    The other BIG problem with the trade board was the rules. Trade posts only, no flaming, derailing or just basic good ole siege nonsence.
