    Since there will be a larger number of vendors on the shard since prices to maintain them will drop, can we please stop spamming this forum with buy/sell threads and maybe even get our market forum back (yeah, I understand it was a forum proposal to get rid of it in the first place)?

    Just sayin...la

    I think that since we have gotten together and lowered the 3x vendor fees, this is a good idea. Get a market sub-forum. Sure there will still be the odd thread, but I dont think we need things like selling 10k leather, or vendor restocked threads flooding the main page and bumping threads back to page 2 or 3 that might be relevant to someone.

    You remember of course that the Siege trade forum was removed because everyone flat out refused to use it and just posted everything in the main board anyway, because it had always been that way?

    Yes I recall that, but back then...vendor prices prevented a lot of people from being able to keep items up on a vendor. Now that this will change in the next publish, it would seem to make sense to have a trade forum specific to Siege and keep the standard buy/sell thread out of the main shard forum.

    *shrugs*

    Again, just a thought, but it seems a lot of information/threads get thrown off the first page because of all of the buying/selling threads that are started...la

    Yes, they do, but if I'd look an idiot if I asked if it could be done only to find everyone boycotted it again, so first I want some feedback from the majority of the posters. I'm sure you can understand that? :)

    I was one of the few who was in favor of a separate trading forum in the last poll so I wouldn´t mind one now...

    Hmm, I actually like all the buy/sell threads. Cuts down on the number of epeen threads :)

    I vote no to the trade forum. Been there, done that.

    Keep it like it is. I sure am looking forward to 58. I think we will not only see more vendors with high end stuff, but more resources stocked as well since we can use the BOS again. Oh and BOS vendors will have to make a return as well. :p

    Something we did on Atlantic for a while.... We had a buy/sell/trade thread. Since it was in the main forum, it got checked really often. I personally did a lot of business through that thread, as did other Atlantians. The new trade forums are absolute crap. I've tried to use them.... but hardly anyone checks them, and the people that do are all looking to buy/sell multi-million items.

    Why not try out the buy/sell/trade thread and see if that works out? As simple as putting up a sticky.

    No, keep it the way it is. To much hopping back and forth and I think it will just get lost after awhile.

    Ok folks, it's not that difficult. If you can figure out how to install UO and play it, I would think it wouldn't be a step too far to have 2 Siege forums. One for the community to discuss things other than trades/sales, and one specifically for that.

    Who knows, maybe we could even strengthen the community a bit more if there was a little more discussion here, and less bartering...la

    If you want a definitive answer make a poll, with visible voting so that we can spot ringers. I'm not even going to ask about it without at least a 75% 'yes' vote though.

    No need for a poll, but at the same time, I suppose i can do the same thing as the majority of posters here do. Start a new thread up every time I want to sell something...then bump it for days on end. It's a great thing...la

    This one likes things as they are.
    It is like old town square- gossip, people selling wares, quarrels, showing off. All in one convenient location.

    Maybe Sticky a 'for sale/vendor restock' thread. Place it just below the 'Vendor locations' stick thread.
