    Yeah Laura usually says no to this kind of thing because although it's a nice idea, she's not keen on it, as people have joined in the pasts solely to sell, and if it's allowed there is the possibility of being inundated with people joining JUST to advertise. I'm wondering if there's a way around this.

    You'd be surprised how often we delete posts from new people selling stuff and advertising businesses. :roll:

    Budge - currently there is no selling allowed on here, as you know.

    This is not just a case of setting up an extra section and people putting their adverts in there. It's a bit more complicated than that.

    For one - I do not wish to be held responsible for any transactions that go wrong. I don't wish to see any of our members getting stung. I don't want arguments to erupt on the main forum between buyers and sellers where transactions have not gone smoothly. I don't agree with people divulging their addresses to people on the internet (via PM or whatever) with whom they have never met. I don't want piles of dodgy adverts being posted by new members that we have never heard of.

    I have never completely dismissed the idea of a 'for sale' section, but there is absolutely no way I am going set one up without having put a heck of a lot of thought into it first, and also making sure I can make it as safe and secure as possible for our members.

    However, because this question keeps coming up, I have decided to look into this as a possibility and am currently discussing it with our moderators although I am not going to promise anything at the moment.

    So to conclude - for the moment there are no plans in place to add a 'for sale' section, however if that changes I will let you all know. I hope this answers your question :D

    on a babywearing forum i go on you have to be a member for a certain amount of time before you are able to use the selling/trading section???

    but i understand where laura is coming from it will make alot more work for the mods ect

    Not reeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeelly allowed TBH, but ask the Boss.
    One of the reasons we're stearing clear of selling, etc, is because if something goes wrong Laura (and us mods) don't want to be clearing up the mess or arguments.

    Still not allowed I'm afraid.....what if you buy something and want your money back etc?...could lead to trouble on the forum and that's not what we're here for.

    Sorry.
