Default Password for Buy-Sell-eBay Forums

I think I thought of the perfect way to prevent the buying and selling forums - and eBay/Craig's List forums - from eclipsing all of our other skating discussions.

I can password protect those forums with an easy-to-type password, so only interested parties - not the general forum population - would have see those forums and all of their posts and replies.

If we did that, it would solve so many problems that I think it would allow us to keep those forums indefinitely, although buyers and sellers need to note that our "no public disputes" rule would still stand.

I think I will try this as an experiment starting October 1.
I want to wait until then, to give us time to spread the word to all of our forum visitors.

Everybody has until October 1 to voice their opinions about this idea...

- Kathie

If it keeps the buying and selling forums open then it sounds like a good idea to me.

Yep! And not only that, only the forum members who logged on to that sub-forum would see the for-sale posts.

In addition, we will also move the eBay-CraigsList forum to the buying and selling section, so one password can provide access to both the buy-sell and ebay-craigslist subforums.

Can you add the Buy and Sell Skating Products Here to quick links pull down menu at the top of the page
No, they will be visible enough, just password protected.

And we would add a new rule... no pointing to, or mentioning your buy-sell posts in any other forum.

Can we still give a general heads up to someone in the regular threads, to go check the Buy/Sell, if that thread discussion indicates they would want to know about something being offered there (not necessarily offered by me)?

I'm on board........

Password, etc. fine with me.

Hey - how about credit card numbers too? If somebody gets out of line, just zap their credit card with a $25 'misbehaving' fee. Use those fees for an annual SLF get-together.

While I say this in jest, I'm half serious too. Anything to keep it real around here.
