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.

Wait time

How long is an appropriate amount of time to wait before reposting after the trade is agreed on, addresses exchanged, but the other person is not responding to my PM's?

Personally, I have a blurb saying that until the deal is done I don't hold anything in my trade post. That being said, send them another PM saying you will repost in 24 hours and if they don't respond, repost.

That would depend on how long you've waited already.
If it's been a week, then pretre's advice is solid (as always). On the other hand, if this is just a general inquiry, or you're freaking out, and it's only need a way or two, I'd advise giving them a little more time.
Generally, a week to a week and a half is a good turn around time for following pretre's advice above.

I think what this situation needs is some imagination.

Want my help with a BTR or backout? All messages sent/posted should be in CHRONOLOGICAL order. Otherwise, I just won't read it.
