My personal views are that it is ok, and that is also a part of the "for sale" forum. These members are interested in purchasing from fellow members, whereas the "deal request" forums are for finding deals from online retailers.

Admin has written "wanted" guidelines into the new rules in the "for sale" forum as well.

maybe they think the deal request is for new items from retailers and the ft/ft is requesting any second hand items?

if someone requests a ps2 game in the deal request section and it is offered second hand by another member, they then have to have the trade rules posted and would that not 'clog' that section then?

Yeah As above it's also for "Wants" which are normally second hand.

Still think it's a bit stupid !

I could post 1000 threads requesting items that noone will ever sell in the "FOR SALE" section, when I could just request it in the appropriate thread & be done with it......

Just thinking of the state of the forums guys.........

I always personally think Deal Requests is when you are looking to buy from retailers, and Sale or Trade is for when you are looking at buying from/selling to members. Aslong as people put wether they are selling or buying in title it doesn't bother me.

hmmm well I think of "Want to Buy/WTB" threads to be for used items. It's kind of like deal requests is for new items from retailers where FS/FT is for private trading/buying. I think if we find people posting loads of threads we may add another rule which is that you can only have one active sale and request thread live at one time.

Good point though on the cross-over to be honest it's never crossed my mind.

[SIZE=2]Thanks ChrisUK But Deal Requests and For Sale or Trade can have "wants" in them. It is a bit of a crossover subject, but Deal Requests is more for new/unused items for sale from businesses rather than individuals.[/SIZE]

Double take night lol

I see what you mean, but don't you think it should be defined in 2 threads only:

1 - [Selling] For Sale or Trade

2 - [Buying] Item Requests

Just makes life easier..........

Then everyone in Deal Requests would need to say whether they wanted new or used...so comes to the same cross over in the end. This was we get cross over on the requests bit, that way we get crossover on the member-to-member dealing bit. Personally I'd rather keep all member to member stuff in a separate forum.
