We've added a new WTB forum to this forum in an effort to make it easier to navigate. Let us know if a WTB sub forum makes it easier to find stuff.
Thanks,
-Shotgunworld Staff

Location: somewhere east of the I-95 corridor, until you get to connecticut. but you can bank on vanzant, mo..
might help. also consider allowing us to delete old posts completely might help. navigating around dead posts eats time and e-space. just my 2 cents.

It's a mistake. There aren't enough posts to warrant a sub-forum. The people who want to buy want to see what's offered on the forum, and the people who are selling want to be able to show their item to the prospective buyers. Why have separate forums?

I think giving time, it will help and be very popular.

I know if I had a job at the moment, I would have a couple of post in it.

I personally do not like WTB subforums. Sellers do not typically circulate through there as readily as buyers circulate through FS forums. The only way they are remotely successful is if the search engine is better than the one this forum uses.

Some good points here. I kind of like it, but if you're going to make one sub forum, make two. Make a WTB and a WTS. This way maybe both will get equal time.

I think what might be better is to have wts and wtb, along with wtt possibly, as options for posting in the classifieds. Then, you could use a different color for those options. Makes browsing easier.

Not enough interest in WTB to have a separate forum, IMHO.

If everyone would make things easy like a lot of them do, put a (WTS) or a (WTB) before anything else would be fine in the semi-auto class. If you would like ot add a new forum try a Parts forum, That might be better?

Don't have a sub-forum unless its going to be used. Four of the top 10 posts on the regular Semi-auto classifieds are "WTB".

Deleting old posts when something is sold or not longer wanted would help like others have suggested.

I like to click directly on "Classifieds" to see all the new posts on one page. When I click on the category with a new posting I expect to find a new gun listed with pictures. When I discover it doesnt have pics Im a little disappointed, but when it turns out to be a WTB posting I feel like I wasted my time and focus my attention on the online auctions. Then again Im searching to buy not sell.

As a new member here I was wondering where your "want to Buy" Forum was at. So yes I think you need to add one. I frequently use the WTB section on other forums, so it isn't a waste in my opinion.

It's a good idea, but it ain't working. There are at least three WTB threads in the WTS section.

I would like to see a price in every ad title--It would make eyeing out which items I would be intersted in as far as price instead of going through all of them. I know I should be able to tell the round about price based on the item being sold but I do not have that ability yet.

Thanks!

I love the idea... I have seen that on the archery forum that I belong to as well.

I would be delighted to see a WTB forum here.

The WTBs on the FS forums are a little distracting and also, if one is interested in what others want to buy, those ads would be all in one place.

Great idea....do it.
