the thread about having a section only for members reminded me of an idea i had before.
i was thinking about a reserve system or a buddy system - for example, if i say to someone, i'm after these types of items, if you buy them for me and then redirect it to my address - or if a person won't be around for the upcoming deal, you could say i am after this item
this would help people who are after a certain item or miss deals because they are busy or whatever
only certain members would be allowed to ensure there is no fraud - people can be screened by mods and admin
if it is an item worth a lot of money - perhaps people can make a small commission -
