Admin is okay with this, is it cheap to ship to Canada?

(Note to other admins, would it it be nice to open a yardsale subforum?)

Bit of a late reply, but yeah, I think a yardsale subforum would be nice. Put it under the safehaven category.

That could be an idea actually. Should it be restricted to 100+ post users like safe-haven? In any case if we add such sub-forum we need to add a warning in it stating that the CW team will not be held responsible for any transaction that goes bad in that sub-forum, but if we suspect troublesome activities there (including buyers/sellers that repeatedly never show up or always cancel at the last minute) then the user can see his access removed from that sub-forum. It could be a very handy subforum for those who are looking to sell their calculators, games or whatever.

I dont think there will ever be enough posts to warrant a yard sale forum :P

DJ Omnimaga

It depends. Some people who are done with calcs might be looking to sell theirs while new people might be looking to buy calcs, especially TI-Nspire CX older revisions whenever TI blocks Ndless, nBoot or whatever. On French sites and on the HP calc forum such board is common, even if not used all the time, but it wouldn't hurt to have one

Hmm, well idk. Maybe a yard sale topic were the first post is edited with a list of all the current things being sold? :)

DJ Omnimaga

That would be too much to maintain, especially if most staff is busy. I prefer the Yard sale subforum idea. Besides, some calc sites had those for years and it worked well. It just happens to be less common in the English TI community than in the Casio/HP English or French TI community. The only thing to watch out is making sure people don't just sign up to advertise like bots or something
