Hi guys,

Hope your all enjoying the festive break :) I have been thinking, would an auction system on TableTennisDaily be of great use?

Please discuss below :)

What do you mean "auction". Do you mean we could sell our products á la ebay? or do we talk about fictive "money" and "goods" ?
Either way i think it's a nice idea! Positive!

It would take some work, but I have found a template to work off. I just don't want to clutter TableTennisDaily with to many features if it is not worth it.

How would this work? Direct Payment or Via a Trusted Middle Man ?

Don't forget a Disclaimer :)

I think pay-pal is a safe method of paying and getting money! You can get your money back after you sent it.
Furthermore after every "business" done, there should be something like a (Choo)point for both - seller and buyer.

What do i mean:
If i sell something to Dan, lets say my Rosewood NCT 7.
When i see on my pay-pal that Dan sent the money he gets one point.
When Dan on the other hand receives my blade, i get a point ;)

So at first of course its a hurdle but after a while it will settle and you can see some kind of "rating" and the thrustworthiest sellers & buyers.

I don't think I would be that good, not many users sell stuff on TTD (nor is there much buyers either).
I just feel there's too much of a hassle to do all of this, if you want to auction you can always make a post that says "AUCTION" and start to auction for the item.

Very true XIII :) Just I was thinking if a mod was in place to auction maybe this would make users interact more with buying and selling products to one another. I will keep this in mind for future, for now will leave auctioning alone :)

When you reach 20k likes on facebook and when ttd has 10k members you should think about it again :)

There's only a small proportion of 10k that actually uses TTD on a satisfactory level.

Humour is definitely hard to get through something like the internet; emotions and the facial expression are reduced xD

And ABOUT THE AUCTION, I don't think it's such a good idea; it's just another thing to clump in TTD and initially it may be fully active, but later on, it could end up inactive like the other sections in the forum.

Yeah I agree, one step at a time. Perhaps in the future this could be a possibility. Thanks for all the constructive feedback every! :)

You could make a free give-away section, where you give us presents all the time! :D

It could be an asset, but only if it is used and taken seriously. It may be too much hassle for not that many active users that have things to sell, or want to buy. O the positive side, it would have the potential to give some really good deals to table tennis players around the world:)
