Default Parts for sale/trade/wanted section

How about a section called the swap meet (like the area at car shows where people can sell parts). I put a lot of stuff up on ebay, but sometimes I think I have something I'd really like to trade. I have three parts cars and I'd like to put parts up here first and then if after x amount of time and it hasn't sold here I would then put it on ebay.
Same goes for parts I am looking for.
Just a thought, but I bet I'm not the only one with this thought.

What kind of format are you looking at? We're slightly constrained by the software. Are you thinking just another forum? Is Buy/Sell too cumbersome for posting this stuff? Let'* hear some ideas.

Why not just rename the present section? Or even split it up into different sub-sections like:
Parts Wanted
Parts for Sale
Parts toTrade

I think Deathrat'* suggestion would work best. So you know exactly what is being posted in the section.

Thnx Hector! I've have chosen to just rename BA'* "Buy & Sell" section to "Parts For Sale, Wanted or To Trade" for now. Just so there is no conflict here. I feel that both our forums section SHOULD now be simular in content. This will make it easier for members to "feel" their way around both sites.

Ok, take a look at the new category. We would replace the old buy/sell, lock it and keep it searchable in the database for the time being.

Is that what everyone was hoping for?
