Re: Request for addition to Marketplace rules

I understand the issue and it's a pain, but realistically we can't enforce any rules on buyers. With the rules we have for sellers we can edit or delete posts breaking the rules.

If you're suggesting we give out warnings or bans, then that's really beyond the scope of the mods. The marketplace was intended as a small side section to the forum's core purpose, yet it's pretty much become the busiest and most labour intensive part of the site. If we were also to act as arbiters in disputes, then it'd become unworkable.

Personally, I'd like to see the Marketplace sections close. There are sites that are much better suited for buying and selling because that's their specialty. They give a much better experience for both buyer and seller than EF (or Facebook) could ever do. The problem is that they tend to charge for that extra service.
