    Anyone in Favor of a once a week "for Sale Day"

    I am also a member of the Leica Forum.

    On that forum Fridays are "for Sale Day"

    People, not dealers, can list equip they want to sell or trade

    This system works very well as an alternative to Auction sites.

    Anyone think this would would be a good thing for our Large Format forum

    Thanks,

    Jesse

    Why? Photonet has a classified section use that.

    There are numerous options for anyone to sell or purchase any type of photo equipment without being forced to auction sites. I see absolutely no redemming value in even considering it for this forum (although I am not a moderator and it is their decision) because all it would accomplish is a dilution to the primary objective of exchanging information about the art of large format photography. Enough said.........

    Cheers!

    And the Leica forum is a cluttered mess for all the things it allows. Best not to allow it here unless a separate forum could be set up.

    There is already a gigantic and efficient tool for used photo goods, called EBay. There is no need for another; who wants to check two places instead of one?

    No. As already mentioned there are other outlets to buy and sell photo gear. I'd prefer this forum remain commercial free.

    I seem to remember Tuan mentioning something about future plans for adding a separate section where equipment for sale or items wanted could be listed. As long as it's a separate section from this forum, I'm all for it.

    If you want to sell something you have the rec.photo marketplace large format group, you have the photo.net large format classified ads, you have the large format section of e bay, you have the classified ads in the back of View Camera magazine, and probably other resources that don't immediately come to mind. This is and always has been a large format discussion group, not a commercial group, my personal preference is to keep it that way.
