For new members (or old members who run into an issue), please make a post in this forum asking any questions you have about using the site and how it works that are not answered in the FAQ. Not only are we happy help you, but also we can use your feedback to make the site better for tomorrow's new member! A lot of the instructions throughout the site and answers in the FAQ are there because someone else pointed out that it wasn't clear before.
If you have a question or problem regarding the review team system, whether as author or a reviewer, please use the private contact forum.
I posted it in Off Topic as it gets more traffic compared to sales forum and more people will see the book needed or for sale. Heres how it would work: member posts an ad example "Millemium trilogy, good condition, 5euro plus postage" and anyone interested could swap either eBay info (when ad is up, postage) and make the sale or anyone not on eBay can swap postal order info. Equally, anyone wanting a particular rare, classic or signed book etc can ask for it and anyone who has it can pass on the relevant info. I know theres quite a lot of risk but i do personally think that there are enough members here who still read old fashioned books who would benefit from this.
Its still just an idea at this stage and im not sure if you would like such a thread and its ok if you dont want it, I will delete it. i was just throwing it out there to get feelers on reaction, but if you get a chance let me know what you think.
Alternatively, I could make the buy, sell, trade section a sub-forum of the off-topic section if you think that would draw more attention to it.
Yet another option--down the line--would be to create a whole new section of the website different than the forums with some special functionality to assist in the independent sales of books, i.e. create our own e-bay for book sales. I don't know if the demand would make it that feasible or not.

I like the idea of putting a link in the sales thread plus making it a possible sub-forum in Off Topic. It depends on demand and feedback over the next week but i imagine a lot of people out there will like a forum to sell and buy books and Kindles, particularly when the current eBay market is so saturated with over-priced books nobody gets to see. Ill keep you posted on how the thread is going.
