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.

Is there no longer a way to go from a "for sale' post directly to pm-ing the poster when on mobile like we used to?

So, I was thinking... yeah. There's a link in the profile info on the right.
Not being one to visit on my phone, typically, I logged in on my phone to see how to do it, so I could show you how.

Umm... yeah. It would appear as if there's not.

For now, you can always hit the QUOTE button, copy the text, then paste it into a PM.
FOR NOW.

I'm certain that, if it can be rectified, Plarz will do so as soon as he can.

I have no idea what you're talking about. I totally see a PM User option at the bottom of the drop down. It's definitely not new, and I definitely didn't just add it. :D

Have a good weekend.
