Default Non-bodybuilding items for sale

I was on a different fourm site and I saw that the people were selling other things than the site was made for...

For Example..
A paintball fourm website that sells and trades guns, air tanks, barrels etc. amongest the members of the fourm. They could also sell/ trade dvds, video game systems, mp3 players, etc.

Of course if you engauge with buying/selling/trading with another person you run the risk of getting ripped off.

Just a suggestion if people are looking to sell things

I don't mind having a Buy/Sell Forum for Bodybuilding Goods and a Subforum for Non BB Goods...but like you said you need to be aware this attracts spam and scammers.

Might be good to pawn off supplements you don't use anymore etc.

What do the rest of you think?

thats a great idea. Sleazy, can you lock the forum until your post count is over a certain amount. This would keep the non-regulars from posting spam and b.s.

I'd also suggest doing the same for posting pics. there was a problem at bn with this, and i think that was the solution abbadon came up with.

I would think you could really get into problems with members doing business with each other. People who think they got ripped off...

Besides, it's much easier if you wanna sell something to use E-Bay.

i think it would be cool to have, but you would of course need a disclaimer to barder at your own risk ect.

good idea but personally i wouldnt want to be scammed why not just throw up a post of something your selling through ebay and your allowed to have the link in your own thread, that way you can tell everyone about what your selling or not run the risks of gettin scammed if your buying.
