Will we still have a dedicated section for RC Tanks, or will we be lost among all those aircraft?

Default New Format

Hopefully your new Marketplace will be less involved for listing for sale items..

Thanks

All you have to do is go back to what worked 4 years ago. The activity today is a fraction of what it was on this forum.

That code was not compatible with modern software, technology, or best practices.

Sorry, yes, this was the screenshot I was given, but there will be individual "subforums" dedicated to each category.

in other words, pretty much an exact copy of what is used for all the R/C Groups sites, and as far as i can tell, most every other classified section of any forum.

one of the things that made RCU stand out, was, it was really easy to remember where you saw that one add that interested you, because adds were so different over here.

How about filtering out scammers? What protections are now added to protect members from being ripped off?

Ken and I just instituted a product where users with 0 posts can no longer PM you. We believe this will help cut down tremendously on new users trying to scam others.

We have always cautioned buyers and sellers to practice vigiliance and awareness when conducting a transaction and avoiding common scam tactics, like using PP Friends and Family.

Can you make it such that like Feebay, one cannot put a phone number or email in posts, only via PM's?
Because no matter how much you emphasize this in a warning sticky, folks do not obviously read or take heed of this.

Unfortunately our censorship options are not that specific. I can ban numbers, but not phone numbers. I can try to make the warnings more blatant.

Default MarketPlace suggestion

A feature that I think would be very useful would be a filter to see or not see ads that will not ship items. It is a real pain to see a great item and want to buy it but you get to the bottom of the ad and then it says "will not ship". 98% of what is listed is beyond a days drive. Not willing to ship sort of makes listing on a web page seen around this planet a waste of resource. Making ship or no ship part of the ad set up would make things a lot easier.

Thanks,
Bill

I'm assuming this is not the format yet? Adds without any pictures makes for a difficult buy/sell.

Tech couldn't transfer the photos, which... I know that's a major "What the Hell?" I'm with you guys on that. The mods and I are trying to at least get the posts moved into the appropriate sub-categories (planes, cars, engines, etc)

I'll be patient to see the final format. Good luck, sounds like you will be quite busy!

We are doing that as we speak. Huge kudos to BarracudaHockey, who is taking point. I've done a fair amount myself, but am much slower, since I'm not an RC guy and have to Google a lot of stuff.
This is the work in progress: https://www.rcuniverse.com/forum/cla...rketplace-282/

It's all manual thread moves.

Default New market format.

Totally "SUCKS" and not worth going on. Will stick with RCGroups from now on. Pain to find anything and no prices listed.

Yikes! Huge swing and a miss here, just my opinion. Best of luck with your new business direction.

I think there was a bit of confusion on the marketplace subforum. I've moved the segmented one to the very top of the forum.

You can still post photos. Tech just couldn't transfer the pre-existing ones.

the marketplace at the top of the forums list, is a non starter, for me at least.

much prefer it to be at the bottom of the page of forums, as it is what i look at last, on every forum.
