I think a buy or swap section should be on here were you can buy or swap items(hints the name). The user can either use paypal or whatever he/she wants. I think we can trust the people on Fishlore but how about you 8) 8) ??? ???

it doesnt matter.... most people on the internet dont use perfect grammar/ spelling anyway. i dont see a reason to make a big discussion out of grammar so lets just leave it as is and see how people vote

EVERYBODY LISTEN UP!!!!! If you have a question/suggestion that might possibly be embarrasing such as... how to change a post then please PM that person it's more private(thus PM  ) or to answer that person.
There is a spell check button beside the post and preview buttons. Correct spelling makes it easier to understand your post (heaven knows I have to use it enough !!)
Arguing in a post does not make it more attractive to other people( maybe why there haven't been more answers and draw more opinions to your posts.
Now... most forums do have a swap/buy section. And the only problem I see is that the majority of our members are teens and I'm not sure parents would approve of them giving their addresses out to people on the internet. You would have to do this to receive whatever you bought/traded.

I'm working on this and should have it up soon. Like Carol stated, for those of you under 18 you will need your Parent's permission and guidance when using that part of the forum.

I'm hashing out the rules/guidelines that we'll need and then I'll create the separate board for this section.

Have any of you used Escrow.com for buying/selling stuff before? Seems like a really good idea to protect both buyers and sellers.

The only problem I see is that fact that we have such an international selction of people from all over the place! Could make postage a bit pricey but then again sometimes its worth paying that little extra for something unusual.. hmm ignore my rambling heehee

The only problem I can see is the possible shipping of live fish by persons who may not have the correct equipment involved in proper packing. There is a way of packing fish for safe and comfortable shipment during certain times of the year and there are times of the year when shipments just should not be made. It may cause some very hard feelings between people if fish arrive dead due to poor weather conditions or improper packaging. Sometimes mail order of live fish is difficult for the experts to accomplish and I know I would not feel comfortable attempting it.

I DO buy my fish through mail order, but only through a dealer who I can come back to should I have a fish arrive dead. I have never had this happen, but I know there will not be the loss of a friend if I need to ask for a refund or a replacement fish. I would feel very awkward asking a friend to replace something, but perhaps you all would not.

Just my opinion and I would probably be very willing to swap or sell or just give away any extra plants I would have. Just not fish.

I think you're very right there Rose... could always be awkward and create tension no matter how good willing people are. :-[
