    Just an idea

    Would it be possible to have a section where each member can put up images of what they currently have up for swaps.

    As, when looking through threads, i always end up having to list what I have etc etc. It would be much easier if you could say "I'm interested in a swap, here's a link to what I have up for swaps (would be willing to frag), Take your pick"?

    Taking the thought a bit further.....you could also put up an image or two of your tank. I always like to see the tank a frag is coming from. It gives a better idea of the general health and can help with assessing the suitability of a coral to your own set up.

    Just an idea

    Its a good idea, do you mean get rid of the individual section for each type of coral or have another section alongside with those??

    Haven't thought about it too much. Was just a thought.

    I guess just another section would be good. If each member with something to swap had a thread - like a "dickwillys swaps thread" (for example) that only the user could edit, to keep updated with what you have. And when you see a thread with something you'd like to swap, put up a note saying "I'm up for a swap here's what I've got, do you fancy anything: http://coralswap.......etc etc"

    Again just throwing ideas out there. All comments/constructive criticism welcome.

    (admin/mods: please don't think I'm sticking my oar in, just thought it might be a good idea. I've no idea how easy it wold be to implement or how useful it actually might be. I'm ready to be shot down if its a crap idea)

    Not a crap idea at all!!

    Its a good idea, im not sure how to make it so the only person who can edit it is that member who started the thread itself!! The only way i can think of doing it is to have the thread locked and then when something is to be put on email the mods or me with the content to be put on and then edit it, only i think this might be a little time consuming!!

    I'll look into the idea anyway and then go from there!!

    I only mentioned the locking for editing idea as I can see the individuals thread running away with its self, with lots and lots of pages (potentially) and scrolling through pages to get to the juicy stuff off putting. I agree the idea of mailing a mod to update would be a pain in the ass for all and a bit of jumping through hoops.

    Or the thread can be limited to one page and then clear it out as it goes along!!

    I can see several ways of doing a thread like this..

    By species/type
    A thread for Mushrooms, you've got a mushroom for sale swaps, you put a reply on the "Mushroom thread", insert a picture, include your location.. how much you want for it, or what you might be interested in trading it for..

    Once it's swapped, sold, you change your mind or get fed up waiting you edit the message, delete the image and text, place the message "DELETE" in the body if the message and the next time a Mod wanders by they tidy up the thread and delete the redundant messages.

    By location
    Broad geographic areas, e.g. "East", "South".

    By member
    All the frags you are offering in one thread.. probably the most difficult to moderate to keep the threads tidy.

    Good suggestions Alastair!

    I think the species/type is a good idea, but the location e.g. east, south might put people off by thinking that its only for people in that area or something similar, a majority of people on this forum post so i dont see the need for the location!!
    I agree with the by member bit that it would be rather difficult to moderate!!
