I just like to go on about FS/FT structure, and the current bump system having used it for a while and genuinely trying to stay away from Fo.lk, as the system offers no other additions or fixes to the current system in place on HUKD (Only having to lock my threads now through another system, which makes little sense; I can fathom is there is no current system in place now the mods don't wish to lock for us.)
Anyway to the point, I feel and have felt for a while now that Fo.lk was meant to be an improved version of the current system on offer on HUKD or a complete replacement of this system. As I feel its becoming more and more difficult to advertise and potentially sell items on the forum as the current system offers filters as they only option to specific searching, which as well all know not everyone uses I myself want to be able to view the whole site and FS/FT without using these such restrictions. Id it not time the system changed to be more fair for all, and more open for new users/users that don't use filters. Rather then have to filter through potential deals etc. Why not have specific folder/sub categories for item selling, for example. Entertainment under the existing system should be sub categorised into CD's/Games/DVD's/Media etc.
On another note I'd rather have the current system scrapped all together as I feel it is becoming even more unbalanced with selling items on here, Clothes being the biggest seller on here. I recently bumped an item back up, to have it bumped down within 30 seconds roughly to the second page due to people selling clothes and all other manner of items not relating to the items being sold by me. Obviously I am not the only who sells items on the forum and I understand this is currently the fairest system on offer ATM, but I feel it's time the Fo.lk separated itself from the HUKD system and offered a new service other then simply being an extension of the current outdated version.
Why not follow a category sub section system rather then the current bump guided system.
Any ideas on how this could be simply implemented or maintained by those members in the forum/web based knowledge please explain how easy this would be or how difficult it could become?
I know the usual response to this request but can we be more structured and less critical on here please. Not asking for the usual bickering style of responses. If my grammar is poor I apologise I do my best.
SOLD Tick box. (pending Payment)
SOLD/PAID Tick box
Following on from the expire/spam button instead of people posting "PAID" "Payment Received" etc.
P.S I know you have the site to contend with atm, after the flawless implementation :) J/K So not expecting a response straight away.
