    Now that we've tried having the buying and selling separate for a while, I'd like your feedback. Is it easier to conduct business with buying and selling together or separate?

    NOTE: Please be sure to vote. I would really like to make this section work well for the people who actually use it. If you (the people who actually buy and sell items here) don't vote, then decisions about your subforum will be made by people who don't even participate in it. Make your voice heard!

    Having all the items that you are purchasing and selling is easier as you wouldn't have to make multiple threads. Voted for B.

    I think the old marketplace was better. Just my opinion because when we could sell and buy things at once, we could see something that we might be buying or selling at the same time instead of having to go to 2 different sub-forums. I know you guys changed it because there was a lot of posts there piling up, but I don't think that was much of a problem. I think you find buyers as fast as before, but harder. Just my opinion.
    Voted B

    B. What's the point of having them seperate, anyway? And, price checks should be under the guidance sub-forum.

    In my opinion most of the set up for the new forums is a bit confusing
    but for the WTB and WTS section i think you've it it right on the spot...
    now if someone specifically needs to sell or buy an item they can do it
    easier...

    so instead of threads having

    BUYY
    BUY
    SELLING
    BUY THREAD
    SELL
    SELLING

    its just

    BUY
    BUY
    BUY

    and

    SELL
    SELL
    SELL

    so you can find your item slightly easier...

    Thanks for the feedback. Keep those votes coming. Please let other marketplace users know that this poll is here. I want to get as many votes as possible in so that I can make the decision that will best help marketplace users.

    Let the community have a say, but mostly just be logical.

    It's alright I guess, more organised and I like that but more people would be viewing the thread when it was together so they wanted to either buy, or if they was selling the item they could pick between them both instead of only one.

    I personally would rather just have one subforum...

    Also, maybe a link from here to this thread, so that no one has to push an extra entire three buttons to get here.

    It is easier together, because then you might be wanting to sell something and post it, and if they were separate, you might not see that someone in the other four wants to buy it.

    Completely unnecessary, it's just as difficult to find buyers for things.

    Then I would be needing to bump/create a new thread about me buying/selling threads more often due too so many people posting threads about what they are buying or selling in the same sub forum.

    Check your profile and see if someone replied to the thread that you posted.

    No it's not, honestly feels like they are more people buying items in the new forum due to less traffic. I would see tons of threads with 0 replies with the old forum, but now the 0 replies decreased when the new forum came around.

    It's true that people may want to see a mix of buying/selling threads combined into one sub forum without having to click on a new sub forum, but this new forum now benefits growtopians who are only focusing on one thing.

    For example: you finally get 100 wls and want to see what cool things you can spend it on, you go over to the old market place sub forum and stumble across multiple threads that are mainly based on people buying items, but rarely any threads of people selling items/blocks, rip

    The new sub forum equally benefits players who wants to buy/sell items at the same time, or players who only wants to buy items or only wants to sell items.

    Put it together again.
    people get confused. some people go to WTB because they want to buy something, but it's really about the OP's buying, so the visitors are the ones wh should sell.
    Same in WTS.

    Pls put WTB and WTS back, ty

    Then renaming the WTB/WTS sub forum to something less confusing would be a better choice than combining them to have a flooded sub forum

    I like how the marketplace is now. I however do not like really anything else about the changes made.
