How about a Marketplace for members here to sell, trade their used networking and NAS equipment ?
Isn't the HWZ one having a bigger audience to reach?
That's true, but HWZ is buy/sell and you are on your own. Whereas this marketplace is for members who are able to give advise on using their used equipment. There are many here who are knowledgeable on networks and have been trying different kinds of routers, boards, enclosures, etc and may want to sell their tested equipment for the purpose of upgrading. There are also alot of hobbyist and newbies here who wants to optimize their networks but do not want to spend alot of money buying complicated and expensive stuff. However, won't mind trying out some used but tested equipment which works. The buyer would also be able to sought advise from the seller, through this forum. Isn't this better ?
The Storage Yard is meant for Hardware discussions - feel free to post a marketplace thread in there
Thanks Nic, will start one soon.
Hi Nic, Can you open the forum 'Storage Yard' to guests as well ? A Marketplace for networking stuff has started there.
Would it not make better sense to move just the 'marketplace' thread to "General Discussion" section than to open up whole "Storage Yard" section?
I am sure there are other threads within the "Storage Yard" section which would be best kept as 'Subscribers' Eyes Only'.
You guys make some valid points - i'll create a forum in main for marketplace and move the thread there.
