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.

Yeah Dakka is pretty awesome for that. The bonus is most users host their trade ad there too!

I've seen people use IMGur as well.

Yeah it's called the swap shop or something.

And thank you!

I use Dakka, as well... almost exclusively.
They only allow gaming related images, though.
Uploading a large amount at once can be a... chore... but it's worth it, IMO.

They do have a swap shop there. I've used it a number of times, Porkuslime uses is a lot. MANY of out BT regulars do.
Just keep in mind that your guard there needs to be "up" a little more than here, as we have measures in place that they don't, since we're TRADE focused and they're DISCUSSION focused.
Not a criticism, though, and I definitely DO NOT think that should keep you from utilizing it.

And you can totally use their image hosting without using their swap shop, if you choose.

Heck, I just make it public on Facebook, add the sales post as a comment and voila, another sales ad. Just made a couple of sales through there. Then post here and add a link to the album here and voila! again (lotsa pics and I'll admit it, I was too lazy to post them all individually...). And yes, I also use Dakka.

I tried the facebook thing and it was just more annoying. Might just be personal preference though.
