Consideration for a "pay it forward" section

Tittle says it all.

A section in the classifieds where people can post things for free (and maybe the cost of shipping) just a pay a good dead forward.

Something to think over.

Have a good weekend.

I second the motion.

I have seen this done on other boards with a single thread of PIF. It just does not work. After 100+ posts, no one can keep up with the details. Its got to be a section. The one rule is that if you take something you have to give something(s) of equal value. The sooner the better.
 
The problem with adding additional sections is they take additional bandwidth and server resources every single time the main page is loaded.

That said, there's obviously a time when an additional section is worth the additional resources, and this seems like it'd be one of them. I too have seen these types of sections on cigar boards and they seem to work really well. I want a bit more feedback from others before we create this to make sure it gets enough use to justify, but if the users want it, you got it.

I'm in agreement with Silver Fox and Bend on starting a section for this. I think it could work wonderfully. It should be monitored like other sections but there is a lot of merit to the idea.

Hey SF, wanna pay it forward with a FAL?! :D

Not to worry we will "Pay it forward";)

This is great! I was actually given a pretty nice (LH) holster and he wouldn't even let me pay for shipping (Thanks, Pease!!). On the other hand, I have a bag full of holsters and other goodies that I probably won't use, so I wouldn't mind passing some along. Good idea, although I don't believe in Karmic balance, I am more of a "do unto others" kind of guy.
