This site is about being Money saving savvy and how to save money by getting back at the big companies. Well how about getting back at ebay. From the Argos threads, one can see there is a demend for a swap shop. It may not fit in with the MSE objectives and aims, but Martin, you have to change and adapt to what your customers (Us) want. Maybe you could trial a board to swapping, similar to how the referrers board is operated.

Its just a suggestion, to help this site further, but its already a [glow=red,2,300]good website.!![/glow] ;D

Does sound like a good idea, but as the site is sooo big it would get swamped with rubbish swaps. What happens when I swap goes wrong...people would blame the website even though it wasn't involved with the swap.....

To be honest I can't see it working, it would take a lot of people to 'police' the swaps etc...... :-/

Just my thoughts on the matter
