Is there a WTS/WTT area? If not, why not?

I can see reasons on both sides of the issue, but curious all the same.

I second that... Acronyms are a nice shortcut, but it's even better to mention what they mean when starting a new discussion.

Want to Sell and Want to Trade. I agree with the other posters though, it's good to remember not everyone played WoW.

This would be a place to sell or trade collectibles, etc, but without all the cool features of something like eBay?

I've seen this done at other message boards. A tip is to have a subsection or long running thread for Feedback.

Sorry for any confusion, I guess I assumed too much with the topic title.

Here is an example:

Is there an advantage over ebay or craigslist? With all the photos would the space requirements result in higher site maintenance fees?

I tend to trust enthusiasts over the people who just buy and sell on Ebay. Also, if the pictures cause problems it could be stipulated that they are email only.

Simple solution to the pic hosting problem. Encourage people to use a free site to host pics and ask them to link to them instead of putting the image in the actual post. I use Photobucket myself.

btw, vBulletin can be setup to have the img code turned off in any forum or subforum except for Admins/Mods.
