for sale threads

Recommended Posts

I have a suggestion for something that is common on most or all of the forums I participate in. In "bargaining" cultures (which many of us don't belong to, especially on a concertina forum) it is proper and necessary for the person offering an item for sale to name his price first and any deliberation starts from that point.  Many for sale forums require that and will delete listings that don't include at least a price for discussion.  Aside from the tradition (which probably was developed with a functional purpose and should be respected by those of us who don't live that way), it gets things moving faster than having everyone guess what a seller things something is worth. I think there are a lot of reasons to do that, and just want to suggest that we consider that here.
