Don't bring it back. I wouldn't log on at work for fear of some sort of discipline. Random snapshots are taken of pages that we view, aside from the regular big brother stuff.

If they saw I was visiting a site that had an "Afro Mart", I'd imagine they'd make a big deal out of it.

Well, I don't really think it would be need to be called that.


It was created as a joke, but it actually worked quite well. Besides not pushing other parts off the first page (even though I don't bump as frequently), it completely eliminated the need for me to bump anything at all. It basically became the equivalent of an eBay store.

I would consider paying a fee to have a "store".

I'm all for pp having his own section, as long as the name isn't racially offensive.

Why not have a membership tier with expanded or enhanced marketplace "stores". I understand the site is non-profit. The funds could be donated to GLFWA, or site enhancements.

If I posted all of the 30,000 or so products I sell you might change your mind!

We already have a vendor section, is that not enough? If not and we need a place for a PP store than be prepared for an Ironman Offroad store and an Ultimate Air store, a JCR store, a Jeeperz Creeperz store and so on.

Nothing against PP, I dont even know him, but Kelly has made his site vendor and parts seller friendly so far. Why mess with it and turn away potential business that could benefit everyone, not just those looking for PP's stuff.
