Default The Dimensions Market Place

People buy and sell stuff all the time, and we've had lots of requests for some sort of Classifieds/For Sale facility in the Dimensions community. I was looking around for a suitable add-on or software modification but couldn't find a good one. So we're setting up this new market place on a trial basis. Here are the rules:

1) The Dimensions Market Place is ONLY for size-related items

2) To avoid abuse, all new threads will require moderator approval.

3) Anyone who attempts abuse/spamming risks expulsion.

4) Any deals are strictly between buyers and sellers.

5) Other merchandise acceptable when offered by established community members (those with at least 100 posts)

Now let's see how this goes.

So would clothes sales stay in the clothes/fashion forum, or would they go here?

What do you consider a size-related item?

Just curious.

Not sure of who you're asking this of, but I'll take a crack at it. My definition of a size-related item would be something that would apply to a fat person's life; something that a thin able-bodied person wouldn't need. So clothing would fall under this unless there was a separate thread for it, but the focus would be more toward items that would help the every-day life of a fat person. My wheelchair would fall under this definition (rated for a 650 pound person), or a couch that is specially made to support a fat person's body, or a larger than average watch band, a life jacket that fits 70" chests, etc. Remember, this is my opinion and none other's.

I'm going to write a post here about selling a fold-up shower chair (attaches to the wall of the shower and flat to be out of the way when not needed) that's for a large person.

If you want to see a lot of size-related items, there's a catalog called Living XL and they specialize in fat peoples' items. I'm not involved with their business in any way other than a customer.

Well Conrad, thanks for this board. I think it's a great idea.

It wasn't very specific. Where do your products fit in then? They don't seem sized-related at all.

Thanks, that's what I thought too. But bath products didn't ring a bell with size-related. Haha. I could have been missing something.

Seems pretty plain to me.

I think it would be more categorically organized if the fashion-related items to be sold were also placed in here.

By the way, I've read on other threads that you're in need of moderators. I'm down for moderating the Marketplace or the Fashion forum.

The Marketplace is still pretty new, and we are working out all the issues now about what will go here and what not. We're still undecided on the clothing, but we will have this resolved soon, and let everyone know.

I love the idea of this board. I'm really hoping to see more jewellry and craft items from people

For whats its worth, if I was asked I'd vote to keep everything for sale in one place. I think it would make things easier for us readers to find things, and definitely easier for you good folks to moderate!

I second that vote. Having all sales items in one place does simplify things a good deal and you won't have to go hunting elsewhere for other items (i.e. jewelery, crafts and yummy smelling bath products from say, the Fashion thead).

We have decided to keep all "Selling/Swapping" here in the marketplace. It has been so noted in the fashion forum.
