Welcome to the new Bartertown.com!

Our new server is much faster, and we're very excited to hear what you think about the updates.

Server/Software Updates:
  • Operating System: - CentOS 5 to CentOS 7
  • phpBB - (forum software) 3.0.12 to 3.2.0
  • Server Hardware - We're now on an entirely new, dedicated server with twice the RAM and a Solid State Drive

Forum Changes:
  • RULES - Are now linked in the hotbar at the very top of the page, so they're easy to find. Also, you don't have any excuse for not reading them.
  • ITL Trade Ref System - Also located in the hotbar up top. If you don't see them immediately,
    check under the Quick Links menu.
  • GW products have been condensed by genre. No more vacant, empty sub-forums dedicated to specialist games - those now belong in the GW Fantasy and Futuristic categories. Read the descriptions if you aren't sure where to post.
  • Collapse-able Sections - An awesome extension of the updated board, you can now collapse the categories you don't care about to make the forum smaller.
  • Announcements - Like this one! Did you know we were going down for maintenance and we had updates scheduled? Now you'll definitely be in the loop on future things that impact the site.
All the awesomeness aside, there may be bugs or issues that crop up as we settle in. Please check/post here about issues or if you have questions.

Time for a change to Bartertown's way of life?

Meh, I like things the way they are. i dont want to look in multiple areas, plus its spammy enough when I try to look at new posts.

I don't think having a separate buy/sell forum for each category is a bad thing; I mean, most of the 'nays' said they just click the View New Posts link anyway, so they wouldn't really see the drill-down/file spread. I'm the opposite of all these folks ~ I actually go into the forum (like Privateer Press games) and scroll down.

On the other hand, I'm kind of a "if it aint broke don't fix it" kinda guy. I have noticed a decline in trading, which makes me pretty sad. At one time I had several friends here, and we traded a lot with each other. :(

Having used this site for years

while I find that for the most part I buy anymore,there are still times I trade things. Having said that I am old and crusty and dont like change.jk ,,,,I do not really think adding more rules or forums or sub sections would really add anything to the site.

A couple things...
1) It was all just a hypothetical conversation to start with, so I hope nobody presumed it to be something we were looking at implementing. We've been pretty vocal about "less is more" over the years, and that p.o.v. hasn't changed.
2) I'm going to go ahead and lock this up. The actual conversation died off back in September. This topic is only seeing action again due to a minor act of Threadomancy.

Thanks for the input, all!

I think what this situation needs is some imagination.
