Because of this
.....and then full time job with PCF? Barrie the Admin....oooh that's scary!
I thought of this:

What change or rule or magick do you implement if you were unequivocally the owner/admin/stakeholder of PCF?

(Serious or jest, but please don’t be a dick. This is for fun and to see some different thoughts/experiences, not take a jab at those who make this a good place for us)

I’ll go first. Lawd I love a gamble, I’d reinstate lotteries since I wasn’t here for them. We’d get fined and shut down, but what a glorious couple of weeks that would be.

My other would be to host The Purge. One random week out of the year, all classifieds are locked. Anything listed automatically is relisted as an auction, starting at $0 and no minimum. One, what a blast that week will be. Two, you people bumping your sales threads for the last 5 months, you’re about to get “market value”.

I would instate a day once a year in which every classifieds post that hasn’t been sold goes to me for free. :)

I feel the classifieds would benefit from a tagging system where it would be easier to search for things you were infested in like “THC”, “Hotstamp”, “Yellow” etc simultaneously so you really can narrow down your search and would reduce the need for the bump-fest and give more attention to things sitting for a long time in the ads.

Being able to search by price would be cool too, but then there couldn't be non-lot/multi item sales...

All new members would be greeted with an automatic email with
  • All the PCF approved breakdowns for cash and tourney along with BGinGA certified tourney structures
  • A lingo dictionary with PCF specific acronyms (THC etc) and general acronyms (YMMV etc)
  • An encouragement to get samples
  • A stern warning not to touch any topics related to antes or hotdog sandwiches
  • The full history of the Boat Chips

Remember Clippy from MS Word? Make a Chippy, and while drafting a post it would pop up and be like "Looks like you're asking about a tourney breakdown, just click here" and it jumps them to one of a thousand threads. Or "Looks like you're asking about boat chips, just...sigh...don't."

Clippy was really irritating, he would endlessly NAG, NAG, NAG, but this PCF equivalent of which you speak would instead NAGB, NAGB, NAGB...

I love all these ideas so far. Can we vote on one as a community to implement?

I'd ban group PM's. As much as I enjoy some small group banter, I think PCF would be more robust if more posts happened in the general threads.

I'd make PMs searchable. "Who did I sell those Condado Beach chips to again, all those years ago?" "Somebody contacted me a few months ago, looking for Riverside chips...who was that?" (OK, that last example was a joke...we all know who THAT is, haha).

But yeah, I wish PMs were searchable (and didn't have to disappear). I'd try to make that happen, if I were queen for a day.

If everyone wants to bear the cost of the developers, im sure we could approach Tommy. But in any community this large, you’ll have dissent.

This is the one I would vote and pay for. I mean besides my The Purge Week.

Searchable PMs would be amazing

There needs to be a place for me to rant.
For example, every time those blue chip fracs are listed, I want to rant about their “market price.” Like, I know they always sell for that price, so it’s not like I’d be bashing the seller, or even the chips, just the way they’re perceived.
But that rant would not be appropriate for a classifieds thread. So I’d institute a hidden place for ranty comments. Because containing rants is like suppressing a sneeze - it can’t be healthy.

You can start a "RANT" conversation to me if you want some place to vent. I'll even try to read and respond.

Edit: I wasn't being sarcastic either.
