[WTS] &[WTB] should be made a Rule in the buy/sell

Discussion in 'Support & Feedback' started by Dollar, Nov 4, 2007.

    I think sellers and buyers should have to put [WTB] or [WTS] in the start of their titles in some of the subforums in buy/sell like the link sales and Site sales subforums. This would make it alot faster for a buyer or seller to scan threw the thread titles. ;)

    For noobs,
    SEMrush
    WTB = Want to buy
    WTS = Want to sell

    Anyone else agree?

    Plus the search function would like 10x better you just a have to type 'wts' or 'wtb' and hit search and get recent threads.

    YEs, that would make it easier for advertisers/publishers to read relevant threads :)

    Agreed, make a custom tag when you go into the thread post screen and you have to select, WTB, WTS, WTE (want to exchange).

    I agree convenir einverstanden concordo.

    Great suggestion, though that would make mods more busy.. (deleting threads or renaming).

    I search for [WTB] every few days and rummage through the last weeks worth of threads. So if [WTB] is not in the title I'll not see the thread, because of that, I guess I'm for the idea...but not a tag, unless the tag is searchable. If I can't separate the selling & buying, it's still too cluttered, so *shrug*

    Regardless of whether or not it's a rule, i do support it's use, in fact, I'll not sell to a buyer that does not use it in most instances, because I'd not see the thread.

    I think it's a great idea too... It seems to be pretty standard among the savvy buyers and sellers, but occassionaly the un-savvy newbies have something interesting to buy or sell... ;)

    90% of the threads created in Sites, Domains & Link Sales are people selling... And for the wanted to buy, people do often use [WTB] because these threads are in the minority.

    So i think it's fine without being mandatory, if people don't create descriptive titles they may not get a great response which is their problem.. They will learn. I spend most my time in the BST section and don't find it an issue.

    When you hover over a title, the Alt or Description pop-up text usually provides enough info to save needlessly cliking on an irrelevant thread.

    maybe there could be a mod created that will automatically prompt and require all thread starters in BST to state if their thread is buy or sell.

    Yeah, I'm all for organization. Nice idea :)

    Is it really that hard to click a thread and read it?
