Split the group buy section up a little
« on: Thu, 07 April 2016, 17:40:34 »
Hi All,

I wanted to put a suggestion into the pot.

My suggestion is that the group buy section be split up into some more sub categories. Currently the group buy section is littered with Active, semi active (Group buy finished but still talking) and inactive group buys (Everyone has got their products and the thread has been brought back up because of a single poster doing necromancy). The reason that I bring this up is that on a photography forum I am apart of they use an archive subcategory to put anything which has been finished.

In my eyes, I would split the group buy section into four categories: Active, finished, Archived and Disputed.

If any of the threads need to be moved, a moderator can be contacted and this can be sorted out. This just cleans things up and also means that a thread doesn't need to be maintained for the current active group buys.

And then tag all the group buys with drama in them so we can either avoid them or have a giggle.

Or not.

That actually sounds like a good idea.
"Because keyboards are accessories to PC makers, they focus on minimizing the manufacturing costs. But thatís incorrect. Itís in HHKBís slogan, but when Americaís cowboys were in the middle of a trip and their horse died, they would leave the horse there. But even if they were in the middle of a desert, they would take their saddle with them. The horse was a consumable good, but the saddle was an interface that their bodies had gotten used to. In the same vein, PCs are consumable goods, while keyboards are important interfaces." - Eiiti Wada

All group buys should just be run by mods and only mods, to prevent any sort of fraudulent activities.

Do I sense ToS violations occurring?

There are no terms of service regarding stealing from your forum members, so there is nothing to violate. But all we need is trust in our mods.

Thanks, I am glad you like it. However not completely my idea :P

Well it is interesting to watch what is going on within a disputed thread. However it does help with scamming people are they are easily seen within the disputed threads.

All group buys should just be run by mods and only mods, to prevent any sort of fraudulent activities.

The way in which group buys are setup is fine currently in my eyes. However that is drifting off topic as that's more looking at the transparency of the group buy system (which they are sorting out in another thread) rather than the structure of that part of the Forum.
