Improvements to the Classifieds System!


Recommended Posts

After collecting some feedback from people, we've added a new feature to the Classifieds/Market section of the site!

Now, whenever you create a Classified, the system will automagically create a topic in the appropriate section of the forum AS WELL, and the two will be linked together. 

With this update you will get more eyes on your listings with using the Classifieds system, as people will see it in their activity streams in the case that they have it filtered to only show the latest posts (or anything like that). The thread that is automatically created will have the same basic info as the listing, and a link to it so people can check out the photos etc..

FURTHER! The system will also automatically add to the beginning of your thread title an appropriate tag: [FS/O/T] or [WTB]. So don't worry about adding those to your listing, we do it for you! 

Please consider the automatic threads as REAL threads, feel free to post in them, bump them if you like to do so manually, etc.. The only thing I'd ask is that you not manually create any duplicates. We'd like people to continue to stick to one active thread at a time, per category. 

Any questions or further feedback let us know!

This is a really convenient addition.  I made my first sale through classifieds last week and it was a great experience.  If you haven't tried it yet I highly recommend it.  I don't see myself going back to bumping a forum thread.

How does it work with multiple transactions from one listing? Say someone is selling their homebrew at quantity, or in my case right now, buying sundries from multiple people (currently talking to 2, and open to more)? I would like to exchange feedback with each.

Should work fine, just reference the same thread for each.

      Today we're announcing the release of two new systems to make transacting with others on VGS even more enjoyable:
      Classifieds and Feedback!
       
      In a nutshell, Classifieds gives you a new marketplace style section of the site to buy, sell, and trade for video games, related items, and other collectibles. Same idea as the existing subforums, but in more of a marketplace kind of style. Note that we're going to continue to support the subforum as a method of making deals with each other, and leave it up to you to use the system that feels right for you personally. That said, I think you'll like the new system and the tools it brings to the table.
      For more info on Classifieds, check out the guide here: Classifieds
       
      Feedback is tied into Classifieds, but is not reliant upon it. In other words, you can leave feedback for other users of the site based on a transaction that comes out of a Classifieds listing, OR you can leave feedback for many other things on the site. If you prefer to use the BST subforum for your transactions, you can simply leave feedback after a transaction by visiting a user's profile and clicking on "Add Feedback" and referencing the sale/trade thread for the transaction. 
      Similarly, you can even leave feedback for non-monetary transactions. As long as it's "transactional" it can be counted; one example would be if you're making a homebrew and you hire an artist to do concept art for your game. More info is available on restrictions in the guidelines at the link below.
      We ask that you not abuse the system and should note that it will be monitored. Just use it within reason. Piling on positive feedback to a person so they look legit will not go well, nor will negative review bombing a user because you don't like them. Just use it sensibly and I think we'll be fine; you an always ask a staff member if you're not sure.
      For more info on Feedback, check out the guide here: Feedback
       
      That's all for today! Feel free to ask any questions in this thread, but make sure you've read the guidelines before doing so to save us answering the same questions over again, please and thanks.

      Hey all! Making a thread for public announcements regarding maintenance downtime. Sometimes we will have to temporarily take the site down to do upgrades, and when that happens we want you to know ahead of time.
      The thread is locked as it is purely for informational purposes, and any conversation will muddy the waters. If you have concerns about an update feel free to PM an admin or mod!
