i think the trading forum would be great.
but as others have already said,
-i think it should be kept to within australia, saves problems with currency conversions, costly postage etc.
-it should remain focussed on computer hardware only (gear relivant to i4memory only)
-users should be restricted by posts and membership time before access is possible, i think this is the downfall of the OCAU system, too many 0 post counts in the trading forum.
-some kind of user rating system would be good in concept, but after having being burned (a bunch of us) by an Ebay user with a 200+ rating, i am questioning of the validity of this method. (yeah, i know Ebay....)
that's about all i have at the moment.
although, i'll probably never get access to it, my post count is yet to get off the mark.

By dinos22I also agree with that. I'm not one for sales taking a long time, as some of you may have noticed, i'd rather sell quick at a good price than let the sale hang around for ages.
Several times on OCAU i have had buyers bid instant, closing the sale to only pull out, i mean genuine reasons are fine, but simply changing your mind is just plain annoying.

I think that having studied the OCAU trading forums for a while now, there are a few lessons learnt...
1. Forget the sorting by thread start date, last post date is what most people still use
2. Employ a bumping rule. If you need people to help enforce it, then I and im sure a couple others round here will be happy to help.
3. No PM bidding
4. Conditional bids are fine, just dont expect it to beat someone else with an unconditional
5. DOA must be offered, and is part of the rules of trading
6. Harsh penalties for people doing a "HappyHero"
