    would be nice if there was a section where people could advertise their original games for sale and trade,
    especially as this is a pretty tight community..

    I personally have a load of american gamecube games I want rid of, and am sure there are plenty of other people who would rather trade in a forum like this rather than being ripped off in exchange shops and ebay etc.

    Just an idea.. [​IMG]

    Hmm.. I guess so, but although we can trust a lot of people we can't really trust the newbs(no offence, but its true, we don't know you at all, and we have no proof you're a good seller/trader(unless you can prove that, of course)).

    Its an OK idea... but I'm not sure if the mods would approve

    Its been brought up in the past and has been shot down each time. One of the main problems is the fact that if someone gets cheated by another person, it would not only tarnish the cheater, but this site as well for letting the cheater advertise here.

    GameTZ is probably the best and most widely recognized trading site. I highly recommend using them!

    What's wrong with selling your games on E-Bay, just get a good feedback rating, then I'll buy from you.
    Either way, it's always a risk to have to buy something online.

    more often than not, its the seller who gets ripped off on ebay, and ebay just doesnt appear to care...

    Not really, it's his decision to sell or not sell whatever he wants to. :hmm:
    Their fault if they start a bid and it closes when the price barely rose up.
    It's mostly luck then, I guess.
    Lol you called Qrayzie "Ora"
