Default New Forum in Marketplace

Hows about making a "For Trade" forum in the marketplace?

It seems a lot of people really only want to trade their vehicles for other vehicles or parts for parts.

Then when they post them in the vehicles for sale or parts for sale they get yelled at for not having a price.

If they don't plan on selling it then they have to come up with at price that just reflects a value and they really don't want the money.

Just an idea. Maybe this has been covered before.

That's because they don't understand that they are fucking themselves by not taking money for their wares.

When you list anything in the Marketplace, there are inherent probabilities that your item will 1) not sell due to a lack of a buyer looking for that specific item, or 2) the lack of a buyer who will pay a sufficient price. Clowns that want to trade instead of sell outright are lowering the probability of a transaction occurring even further by compounding it with the even lower probabilities that 1) there is someone out there that has that the clown wants and 2) that the person with the desired item will actually want the item that said clown has to trade.

However, its pretty rare that the owner of the desired item will refuse cash.

I would have said what PP did, but in a nicer way.

I just know that I have seen some people who want to trade cars because they won't have another vehicle.

Oh well, just a thought.
