Changing Retro

Due to the feedback of several members, and a little bit of common sense, we are trying something new with the Keep an Eye Out For Me board.

The old board was a moderately successful idea at first but once the thread grew to 10+ pages with a different post for each user, it became unwieldy to access in the field while hunting for other members.

The new Keep an Eye Out For Me is a child board in the Collection Connection area http://www.rfgeneration.c...orum/index.php?board=12.0

There is now a different thread for each major system.  Once you post the items you are looking for with a bounty, myself or another staff member will update the thread and delete your post so that the thread is very clean and made up of just a few posts with everyone's list combined.

If you want to check it out, head over to the new board and read the READ ME FIRST thread.

Please PM me with comments, suggestions, ideas, etc.

Great stuff! The new sub-board is very organized. I'm sure it'll make finding out what other members are actively searching for much easier. Kudos to you!
 
Thank you Smiley. This will make hunting for targets so much easier. Plus it will help me find active buyers for the stuff that I pick up on my own Smiley.
 
Yeah, this is a great idea. I appreciate the feedback from other members that got this project initiated.

One question I do have is, if a person starts a thread for a new system, is that person responsible for keeping the initial post current?  I started one for the 2600 and the Vectrex, have asked for notifications for each one, and am happy to update when necessary. The only issue is that I don't think I have privileges to delete posts after updating. Since these systems will probably not have much traffic, I don't mind contacting a Mod when I need them removed if this is okay.

Like many of the people who visit this site, I am a lifelong gamer who loves and appreciates classic gaming as well as the current generation. When I started collecting games, I realized that some of the stories of my collecting might be interesting, educational, or just plain funny. The stories that I share here are meant to entertain as well as inform and they are all 100% true, which is why I include pictures.

enjoy
