Default 'Items wanted' area more useless then ever

The problem with 'WTB' areas in classifieds messageboards is people only look in them when they have stuff to sell. Thing is, lots of the time, people have stuff they didn't even know they wanted to sell. So, the way it was before with WTB at the bottom of the page, someone may be looking to buy something and then notice that someone wants to buy that receiver they have sitting in their closet they haven't used in 2 years, voila! Now that would never happen, it lowers the value of the WTB area and makes more people want to just post WTB ads in the classifieds FS area (which gets them deleted)...

Just my opinion.

I aggree with you on this and one more reason I liked it the old way was if you looked at the WTB when it had a few responses there may have been answers to it that I wanted but did not know was available because it was not posted in the classifieds

Agreed! Old RCU with a mix of WTB and FS ads on the same forum was a real plus, while scanning FS items, I've come across WTB ads that I so happen to have that item sitting aside peacfully. I doubt scanning traffic in a WTB would be rather low.

Agree with everyone on this one!!! - the value for the WTB is lowered beyond belief! Not only that, there often were little 'nuggets' of stuff that were in the classifieds themselves. It prompted dialog between the members. The 'new' format of the classifeds discourages anything like that. I don't know about you guys, but I like to dialog and haggle with my fellow modellers - that is lost as well!
