Will HUKD ever get For Sale / Wanted / Trade Forum back?

20
Found 29th Apr
Seeing how much of a failure Lokal is, will HUKD ever bring back the For Sale forums? This probably was one of the best things about HUKD.

What were the reasonings behind closing in the first place and what changes would you want if the For sale threads were introduced?

For Example. Members who want to sell (they can buy) have to be registered for minimum 3 months and posted X amount of times?

They could have asked trusted members to take over the admin side but didn't. Maybe misc and ask will be next because they make no money from them.


Misc is already on its way to being an online version of the Walton's with the new rules. It's virtually dead now (unless you like like saying ''goodnight' multiple times)
Think about it ! For just a minute .

Contrary to the Rose tinted specs view , FS/FT was far from being free of fraudulent transactions . I saw numerous complaints every day , which of course the Mods had to attempt to police - which I imagine must have taken up much of their time .

How much did HUKD " make " from the use of their "platform" and their employees time ? Zilch !

Why should HUKD provide and police a FS/FT section when there is no money in it for them ? It appealed ,of course , to members as it was free and maybe a bit more reliable than the multitude of current platforms .

I don't agree with much about todays HUKD and its employees but I accept that the removal of FS/FT was inevitable .

Maybe it could be restarted if members were willing to pay for it

I offered to do that when it was announced the Forum was being closed, but the decision had already been made.

Doubt it, mods got annoyed with everyone whining about paying for unicorns with paypal gift. Too many scammers and gullible people

Political and religious debate is no longer permitted

Point 4.

You couldn't make it up. Probably other gems in there, couldn't be bothered reading it.

I don't think I made any comments in that thread, it seemed pointless when you watched how many were deleted on a regular basis to 'clean up' the thread (I bet even @fanpages couldn't tell you how many comments have been made in total on that thread) it should have just been a closed statement, what's the point allowing people to comment when anyone disagreeing is deleted. The only thing it allowed was people saying 'great idea' who have made no contribution before or since to misc section.

Wouldn't write fanpages off so quickly.
I beggars belief though when they promote freedom of speech in a thread about mass censorship. I wonder if they know what freedom is.

Gotta admit, point 4 is a classic. Surely somebody must have noticed the irony and said, whoaaah, hold on a second before you post no. 4

...and now they can't trade anything for it either!
As the site changes from its original site - to its new site these days and as it becomes bigger and bigger from the days of pre naughties .. . .. when it was literally a site made up of "members" for want of a better word, it has by its own success become very, very popular - and in the exponential growth, certain parts of it became untenable - both from a fraud perspective, and that of policing it... ... The "Return" just wasn't going to be viable.

Not without making a charge or similar - which of course is a hypocritical sense to be in... .. ..

I, like many others that no longer use it - loved misc and the fun we had in ther and used to use FS/FT a lot and luckily had no issue at all..... But.... Today - I just feel that the risks vs reward are too high for Pepper. ((((((HUGS n Purrrrrssss)))))
No incentives anymore so i won't put up anymore deals.
I think the reasons for getting rid of FS/FT were fairly simple, it took a fairly high amount of resource to maintain from the HUKD staff and brought no financial benefit to the site at all. I'll be surprised if it comes back as there's no real way to avoid those issues.
