    Default Marketplace

    Does anyone else think it might be worthwhile having a section of the forum for buying/selling odds & sods? Offcuts of materials, unwanted tools, stones, that kind of thing?

    I sometimes visit another forum for craft work, and they have a market section, and on the couple of occasions that i have bought stamps and things from other members, I have sent the money via paypal.

    Just private transactions then.....? Wouldn't there be a lot of legal stuff that Cooksons would run a mile from.......being as they are hosting the forum?

    From past experience, there was no liability accepted by the forum management (in big bold letters at the top of the forum). It was for private sales, conducted between individuals - so caveat emptor held sway. Paypal was (and is) the most commonly accepted mechanism there.

    Equally, there was no money taken for the service - as that would imply a contract and therefore could be used to demonstrate implicit liability...

    One of the requirements was a certain postcount before a member could post; it helped keep the number of problem epsiodes to a minimum.

    Hah! Couldn't translate a Latin passage these days if you paid me (hmm, well I suppose if I were paid I might!). As for the legalese... I am not a lawyer. As my girlfriend (who is) reminds me occasionally

    Default Cooksongold Marketplace?

    Hi all,
    This is turning into an extremely interesting thread... Funny you guys should say this as we are indeed looking into the possibility of launching a Cooksongold 'buying and selling' platform in the future. Unfortunately, I can't really elaborate as they're only thoughts and plans at the moment, but thanks again for letting us know your thoughts, we really are listening!

    Adam
