I am one of the newer members here, I have bought some items from older members here, So I am going to give my thoughts on the auction site.
1. Port the user database over or approve current user names on here so the older and newer people will know who we are buying from. I am not going to buy anything from someone who doesn't have a decent sell history. Example I bought some awesome rics from Fldric , but i looked at his sell history and posts, past tank pictures etc etc.
2. Where do I ask if any has some cheato, I need some right now currently but I do not have an option to ask. Some people may have some but just not enough to auction , but enough to sell me for 10.00 and just pm me.
3. How Do I give something away ? Maybe I bought a hard to keep coral and it needs a new home ?
4. Where does the 5% fee go to ? What do members or buyers form SWF get for using the site ?
I simi understand the reasoning behind the move, But I also had hopes if I can ever get stuff to grow to be able to sell frags back to the community that has helped me so much. I am currently now at odds with that idea.
