:prop:

I have tried for the past few weeks to get to grips with it, but I much prefer using here, would be easier if the layout was the same as this. Its a good idea though.

Yes there was. There have been loads of threads about it, and the bugs and issues with it. Or you could have searched first so you wouldn't look daft.

Doesn't change anything nor does it improve. It's a pointless exercise and shows they really don't care what the users of the FS/FT desire to want to make it a better website for all.:)

The funny thing is they asked us to beta test it, a few of us, ignored all that was said and stuck it live after 3 days. None of the bugs were sorted the layout was poor; and still is and they still refuse to see the point of peoples problems with it. I wonder how ASBO will respond to it, if thats they way they are planning to keep it.

I see no point in using the new system it doesn't help me as a seller nor does it help as buyer, infact reporting my own threads is more difficult it expires them.:oops:

Also where's the simple rules on the new site. According to the rules of this website we stick to the code of conduct on that site we can pee freely?

pretty much what they did when they rolled out the new hukd then, lessons learnt = 0

I didn't know about it cause I search via NEW when I'm browsing. Read the link that Jeany123 put on too. I can't see the point of the new site when it mirrors this one too. Why is it better to use the new site instead of this one for Sales & trades?

Seems like they like making the intent of being seen to be doing something positive a lot of times, which is a good thing but get side tracked and worry about something else.

They still haven't sort that guy selling the two hard drives for the xbox when it was blatent it was an error and not in breach - even though the guy looked like a bulk seller he still had the right to sell two of each per the three month ruling, even so great effort done there. - Can't wait for Asbo to get on that one hopefully he ain't sunning it for to long.

The idea I thought of the new website was to start from scratch and build the website seperate to allow growth in that FS/FT sector, but it's done nothing for it.

- No new rules
- Poor alienating website layout.
- No new mods - which should be expected to help with the 'new traffic'

The list could go on, can't think of anything positive. Oh no wait a moment you can hot link to someones profile a little easier.

i cant get used to using it, will selling/trading stop on hukd?

I AGREE

The only reason i can possibly think for it was to get it away from hukd, and belive it will get less input than the one here, if thats possible

Which is backward thinking as surely it does attract people who annoying/scammers but it's got to help the other parts of the site.

Doesn't even have an area for feedback nor for problems.

Wanted / For Sale / For Trade / Help / Feedback

If it wanted to be more succesful and get away from the poor current bump rule it should venture down the way AVforums have it and discover sub sections, if it is going to be seperate from HUKD, it has no reason to follow the same structure.

They want to split it because it gives a bad name to HUKDs.

There are not enough mods to patrol it, and so people get ripped off.

I do think the mods need to create something like an active user list, with special privileges in the for sale forum only to temporarily lock threads (Say for an hour, until a mod can do it properly), or extra spam power within that one forum.

This list should be based on a 24 hour activity report, so there are a number of normal members with these extra privileges at all times.

Not a bad shout, only problem is who is going to mod the active list. Might cause more problems, though a bigger mod team I deffo agree with. Whether they are on the books or not. Forum helpers more off please.

Awaits the stains negativity.:)

I agree we need more mods. Turns out ASB isn't actually that bad.

Back to my idea...

I don't wanna be a former helper or a mod. But I would want to be a FS Helper or whatever you wanna call it.

End of the day, there are like... 1000's of members, so you have the mods select the first batch, one mistake or abuse of system, and they get replaced by a new member.

It'll never happen obviously, but just wanted to put it forward

ASBO is a good guy he just doesn't seem to like a few individuals, though I don't think your on the list from the loving comments he makes.

Yeh I agree it would be to have more FS/FT helpers. Though I'm not sure admins desire for more.

I think you are right, though they would have to have very limited access to stop privelages. Lock threads/ lock pm's. So no deal could be done, and strict warnings they could issue.

You are right though it would likely never happen, but never say never. :whistling:

Oh ASB doesn't like me - but hes not unfair either, and you can't ask for more than that really.

Oh and I agree on limited access. These wouldn't be mods or forum helpers - just peace keepers if you like.

Yep but for the instances where the mods arn't about it would help.

Three people got scammed one day because of there own greed, but if someone would of been about to lock the thread that may of hindered the scammer. (Saying you had 5 active list helpers online at all time)

Or another suggestion would be a spam lock button. 2-3 people have to select lock thread. It locks then an admin has time to review.

the only thing we cant do is unexpire, anything looks dodgy and no sign of anyone i spam for mod attention, but a problem if its been expired, but anyone can post their concerns in a thread, if people still go ahead and but then really that is down to them, so yes a lock button would be a good idea, but what if them said members aint online, back to square one

If you spam people just re-list. Same could be said for locking. But spam doesn't really come to mods attention until its spammed.

Locking would give the mods rights to post a notice.

Nope but it brings them nicely to there attention. And helps to build a database of there ways of doing things, I like mods to leave it there so we can see the tale tell signs, so we can warn others.

scammers shouldn't be spammed if the mods actions are anything to go by - they expire, lock and place a message usually.

I disagree that other rule breaks are not urgent enough.
