<Rexxar> Well the people who are here for doujins also doesn't want to come here only to have every other thread be cluttered with "I'll trade ya <this> for <that> but only if you promise not to share with anyone".
<DK> Plus I assume linking/referring to an existing trade thread is also not allowed, right?
<Rexxar> Correct. There will only be one thread for all that stuff.
<DK> I suggested this before but how about a separate trade section, /trade/ ?
<Rexxar> Honestly, I'm not a fan of the whole "Secret club of trades" thing, and creating an entire board dedicated to keeping content from the public goes against what I want for the board. Hell it's against why I made the board to begin with. If people desperately want a clubhouse where they can do private trades they are more than welcome to buy a domain and server, and host the site themselves with their own money.
<DK> Or just one single sticky thread for all users that want to do trades within the doujin sections.
<Rexxar> Maybe. But considering that the thread will have exactly zero posted content, just a lot of text posts with people talking about what doujin they are willing to trade for what doujin, it fits a lot better on the section that's dedicated to text posts and discussions, namely /dis/.
<Anon> Oh god, finally some light on this issue. I think trading should be prohibited since it is against of what the board os meant in first place.
<Rexxar> I won't be entirely prohibiting it, no. They'll get a thread, that's it. I feel that's a good balance between yes and no.
