    This is just a suggestion with the small experience I have with dp so please don't take it too seriously.

    I see that server fund raising is in progress and not everybody can pay for it. But no doubt this is a nice place which is helping everyone out here.

    Recently I started using buy sale section.

    I was wondering how it would be if dp charges a small fee for listing services. Well this may sound odd to buyers but this would actually keep the section clean and since the buyers are earning here, they would not feel bad paying a small fee for listing.

    Alternate was is to implement an escrow system like freelance sites but again that would involve investment and man power.

    Well this is just a suggestion. Its my thought that it can give good revenue to dp which Shawn add for server fund raising :)

    Well there is another way also ;). Sellers may contribute a certain percentage of their income and an additional reputation mark towards contribution may be listed against their id. Just the way itrader is displayed ;)

    no problem, we were all new once. :)

    there're two schools of thoughts. one is that paid listings will clean out the junks and spammers. the other is that it is primarily free listing is what attract more and more visitors here everyday, adding to revenue via adsense.

    me? i've no opinion.

    My friend DP is the only place which doesnt takes a penny from anyone. its hell lot better than sitepoint, GAF etc. I respect SHAWN for this :D Also dp is only place where newbie webmasters can join up and it makes things friendlier. ;)
