Default Things for sale / interest

Seen it on another forum, think it would work well here.. A section where people can post things like discount codes they find, good deals on websites others might be interested in.. All that sort of thing.. Say if someone saw a turbo kit on ebay going cheap, some people on here might want that, someone posts the link..

Anyone looking for stuff like that will see it in that section, sorted..

Ya get me blood? Brap

Could be a sub-section to the links section

We had similar on a forum i mod, it was ok for a while but ended up full of random shiite. It would also need fairly close monitoring to stop the scammers diverting the less internet savvy to dodgy sites/scams.
Obviously more fool the people who click said dodgy links, but they will be expecting help from the forum mods when it goes tits up.

Suppose you'd get a lot of "ZOMG, BARGAIN BUY IT NOW" when it's just an eBay link to something they're struggling to sell

It's a good thing, but also a really bloody annoying thing.

I was watching an mx5 hard top on eBay, was at £100 and wasn't moving. Nobody was bidding on it and I was thinking "fuck yeah, bargain to be had".

Then a chap on the 5 forums posted a link to it like "OMGZ look at this bargain hard top why is nobody bidding on it??" this was with about 3 hours til the auction ended.

Of course every man and his horse now starts bidding on it and it eventually sold for £300 to a forum member. I was a little hacked off.

We have this on AXOC and it works well. I've picked up a few bits just from people diverting me to bargains - it's a good tool.

Hardly anyone looks on gum tree but only this last week someone posted a link to a mint low mileage AX GTi that's a rare find so hopefully someone on the forum will snap it up.

Just think it would be good for anything someone could be interested in.. Sometimes some things like on UKHotDeals.. Like microsoft points, only go on offer for a day or 2, if someone put that on, it would benefit a few people on here probably..

I'd even mod and sieve the shit out of it if people were like OMG TOTAL BARGAIN, and it was their pet snail they wanted 3 grand for, because of sentimental value..

I tend to not look in the links section, purely because its basically spam, and funny videos, so i don't tend to look through..

Someone see's a spec'd up S engine for sale, pop a link in, could be useful to a number of people thinking of doing the work, who could buy the whole engine as it is

Could work, as long as people don't use it to promote their own stuff being sold.

Sounds like a good idea, if you've found a good deal its even better to share it. could always have another one for non car related ones?

Maybe use the 100 posts/30 day minimum like the for sale section? Would probably cut back on some spam/people trying to reach the allmighty 100. (No offence to anyone..)

This^ it's already part of the rules not to eBay link your own gear so abuse would be punished hard

It would be a sub of for sale so the usual 100 post rule would apply

I'm all for it IF people would use it to share voucher codes and deals and NOT to punt their own shite on ebay

Like i said, if you wanted to make it so i could monitor that section, if i saw anyone promoting their own ebay shit, id just delete it..

They have the for sale part for that.

Should pretty much be for promotional offers and stuff found on websites, only real time something should crop up from ebay, is if something like a turbo kit pops up, something you don't see for sale every day, coming up for sale

Forum is now active as a sub section of the for sale. Title may change when my brain kicks into gear
