Seems to me that if you added a Trade forum it would just mean that you have to look in two places instead of one if you want something. Probably most people that are willing to trade something will take money for it and some that want money will take a trade --- so they will end up double posting, ... sounds like it will create more work and confusion....

I see more negatives than benefits here. Might be nice to hear what others are thinking.

Well most of the swapping that would happen I would be for parts that most people would even think about that they want in the first place

I think I know what you mean but could you say that again in a different way?

Most of the swapping or trade that would happen I would be for parts that people in looking for or at 1. we're looking forward or the eventually looking they would come across things that they normally wouldn't find for sale

i would rather look in one place and have it in the title
WTB (want to buy)
WTS (want to sell)
WTT (want to trade)

better management/ and cleaner forum, just my 2 cents

I could be wrong but it seems like a veiled attempt to skirt forum rules of posting a price. Anyone could offer a trade for an item listed for sale and anyone listing an item that would also be interested in a trade could say so in their add which includes a price per forum rules. After all, most of us would certainly be willing to trade certain items for cash

I can't help but feel that the outcome of this vote isn't going to make much of a difference.
