Default Can we limit Non-Sports Singles B/S?T to just cards?

Would it be possible to have a non-sport trading card buy/sell/trade section. . . which is what I believe this is intended to be, but there are constant posts for other stuff -- video games, buying iphones, dvds, etc, etc, etc. . .

Perhaps there can be an 'everything else' category for the stuff that isn't card related. . . or maybe I'm the only one who cares. . .

Anyone have any thoughts?

I would agree since I am here solely for non-sports but, there really aren't a lot of listings here on the average day to wade through. Usually, checking every day is a matter of seeing 2-3 listings in this section. If it was 3 pages, then yeah, that would be a problem.

Where would you like for people to put it? There is no specific section for them to put it in as of yet, the mods are working on a section. Please hold on to your shorts for a few. ROME WASN'T BUILT IN A DAY!!!!

Better yet since your referring to putting stuff where it doesnt belong, how about this should of been posted in the suggestions area ??? (which BTW its been moved).

We're working on this..but think the forum might have to be shut down to do it (and Pat needs the time to do it as well)...providing we can convince him to do it.

Really? What exactly about my post was 'crying'? It was a simple question/request.

If this has been discussed elsewhere I apologize I didn't see it. I also missed the 'suggestion box' board when I scanned the list of boards since it is listed under New Members. . . As I've been a member here for 2 years I didn't pay as much attention to that board as was necessary.

If you'd read my post, I am requesting a new section. I've been on Blowout forums for nearly a year longer than you and I haven't seen it change. . . . which is why I requested it.

@iluvfish2 -- thank you, that was all that I was looking to find out.

At the risk of getting beaten up again, for no reason. . .

It's been a year since I last mentioned this, and I know Rome wasn't built in a day (referring to post from last year). . .

The Non-Sport Buy/Sell/Trade section is getting busier and busier, but currently over half of the listings on the first page are for things other than non-sport cards. Any chance of a B/S/T area for non-card items, so the B/S/T for non-sport cards can be an area for non-sport cards?

As more and more non-sport releases and cross over releases are produced this is getting more and more noticeable.

Sorry if I've upset anyone.

Jon

The first page of the non-sports goes back two days, football goes back less than two hours. Don't think it's that big of a deal with maybe 10 threads max per day

It's a legitimate request, don't let the responses get to you.

The section isn't used much and isn't hard to weed through, but you have the right to make any suggestion you like.

Ditto and I am a non-sport guy as well. I check the category every two days or so and there are so few threads it is easy to sort through.

How often do you check the boards? I could see if you only check ever few weeks.

Multiple times a day I come on -- I only look at non-sport cards. I see "Ohh new posts in the BST! Maybe there are some good deals!" and I click to see Iphones and watches.

I sincerely think that this is part of the reason that thread isn't used by folks who strictly collect non-sport cards.

I agree, Jon (never saw this thread until now). While it's obviously not a big deal to those who don't frequent the non-sports forum, for those of us that do it is.

Maybe there would be more contribution if the non-sports card section wasn't bogged down with iPhone and Sneaker offers.


I know I'm replying to really old posts, but ignorance lasts forever.
