    Just a suggestion, but it would be nice if someone could add a For Sale / Marketplace type of forum just to buy, sell, and trade game related things. I wonder why it hasn't been done yet but it would be a good idea.

    It hasn't been done because its a very BAD idea. This has been brought up before in the past, and has been denied every time. No good can come from people selling stuff on here. If you really want to sell stuff, go use eBay.

    Yea, but you haven't explained why it's a bad idea? Instead of just saying, "it's been denied before", at least explain why. Thanks.

    There's no need to "explain" the decision. You made a suggestion, it was denied, get over it. But if you really want reasons, read shady's post as well as the two topics I added to my previous post. You know the search button is a wonderous invention. [​IMG]

    I was referring to Puck btw. I wrote the post before Shady's post so I didn't see it. But I don't see fraud as a problem. People don't have to buy from people if they can't be trusted. All you have to do is supply them with an eBay reference or anyother referencing system for that matter and use Paypal, etc.

    I don't really think fraud is a valid reason. It's done at another GBA related message board and there haven't been any problems yet. Even big ticket items have been sold through it. So someone give me a valid reason.
