Green Wizard Marketplace - Need Input on Rules
One of the joys of looking over old posts as you move them is seeing the ideas that people had. One such caught my eye tonight.
"I have an AWESOME commercial-grade metal-to-metal pressure canner that Im getting pretty good with, but i dont use it as often as I'd like to because it's massive - 44 quarts - and its pretty rare that i have enough of anything to can for just my husband and i to make it worth firing up. I'd love to offer it up as a shared/sharable capital resource that could see a lot more use than it currently does, but that's not likely to be of much interest to anyone who lives more than a couple of hours driving distance from my house. Also, my husband manages an organic local-grains bakery that's currently hiring and he'd love to employ GW sorts, but again - for anyone more than 40 minutes from Waldoboro, Maine its just clutter. Maybe something to consider on the upcoming re-vamp of the site."
I'm considering putting a "Green Wizard Marketplace" in the Community section of the new forums and would appreciate some input from everyone here.
First, is this a good idea?
Second, what kind of rules would we want?
Obviously, we don't want drive by posts by people who aren't members trying to sell their products. I'm inclined to make it just trade or give it away but some things are expensive, even though we don't need them anymore.
