How About Vintage Sub-Sections?
« on: December 27, 2005, 07:43 PM »
Hi Guys,

So I've been thinking lately that Vintage sub-sections to the Trading and Classified sections would be cool feature to have here at JD. It sometimes proves a bit difficult to search the Trading or Classified sections for vintage postings and I thought it would be great to have an area in each section dedicated just for vintage deals. It would certainly make dealings easier and it might even help to bring more of the older vintage crowd over to JD as has been talked about in the past. This shouldn't in anyway isolate the vintage collectors from the modern collectors as it has happened at other sites, but would make things easier. So what do you say, how about Vintage sub-sections?   :D

Cheers!
Jason

A very interesting idea, Jason.  We'll talk it over a bit in our ultra secret behind-the-scenes area.   ;)

Dammit, you blabbermouth, Jeff!  >:(

Yeah, we've been chatting about this Jason.  Thanks for the idea.  Obviously our Vinty community isn't as active as RS, so we haven't set up separate trading/classifieds sections for vintage at this point.

But how about adding a "child board" into the Vintage section for buying/selling/trading -  like the Sports board in Watto's?  That way we could still keep all the vintage discussion, including trading, consolidated in one place?  Would that work?

Yeah that could work definitely work too, it would still be a place where people could trade/deal vintage wares without worrying about mixing in modern stuff. Cool!

Chris set up a Vintage Trading and Classifieds board in the Collector's Corner section, so it should be easy to keep vintage and modern separated.

Outstanding! Big thanks to Chris, Jesse, and everyone else for taking a look into this and making it happen. It should prove to be most beneficial.
