I think this is the most sound idea so far. That way you're not limiting it to one person posting you're limiting it to a group. Its also a group we wouldn't mind having here.

Yeah, its not really the same thing.

Stores for all the Vendors would be cool, except for that they all kind of exist already - you guys already have your own sites off GL and I'm not even considered a vendor here. I wouldn't be against it if Vendors got "stores", but I don't think I'm competition for any of the professional Vendors here anyway. The kind of stuff people would call me and "place an order for" isn't something that you, JCR, UORC, or JC would "stock". Its more like support than it is competition.

What I'm not seeing is how the separate forum would turn away any business.

It has nothing to do with competition, if you sold paperweights and I sold tomatoes, I would still want my own "for sale" forum. And so is everyone else that has bunch of sh*t for sale, all I am sayin.

Default Vender Forums

Ironman, PP, and whomever else wanted their own form could "purchase" it. If it's an option for all, it would be fair for all interested.

I don't really see a problem with it. There's only a select few people here that could actually keep their own forum busy with selling items (I can only think of you and Craig right now).
