Outrider Posted October 23, 2010 Share Posted October 23, 2010 I couldn't figure out where to post this, so I guess it goes here? Anyway, I was in a bookstore today wandering and drooling over all the stuff I love when I came across a copy of a book I am dying to read by Lois Mcmaster Bujold. The problem is, I am totally broke and I can't afford to lay down the $25.00 plus tax to buy a brand new shiny hardback and the libraries around me won't have it for a while. Then inspiration dawned. Lots of the users of this site have financial problems and can't afford stuff they really want or need. So, could a board subset dedicated to listing things be set up here at the site for barter or exchange between members? This could be books, could be other things and the next stage approach evolution from the initial approach is to figure out a way to add in small micro-payments somewhere in that chain. Users would have to develop a degree of trust with other users of course and I'm sure their is a forest full of bugs I'm missing but I think the initial idea is a possible one.
