Costs of site maintenance are rising faster than our ad/affiliate/donation revenue, and while we're still doing okay, the "rainy day fund" (to cover expenses in case a major advertiser/affiliate like Google/Amazon/B&H pulls out) and funds available for site improvements are not as healthy as they were a few months ago. A lot of people sell a ton in our Buy and Sell forum, and we've never charged a listing fee. Many of those folks have never contributed anything outside of Buy and Sell, and I'm pretty sure at least a few of them do so for a living despite the fact that our TOS does not allow commercial vendors to participate there. Because of this, I am considering charging a listing fee for Buy and Sell use, and the model I had in mind would be as follows: Basically, we'd be on the honor system. If you sell an item via listing here at Mu-43, then after that sale you would pay a fee. If you list here as well as elsewhere (eg, FredMiranda, Ebay, GetDPI) and you end up selling on the other board, then you pay nothing here. The implementation would be that at the top of the Buy & Sell forum, it would say something like this: As noted above, this would be for the most part according to the honor system, though I might take action (ban, etc) with users who were obviously not paying fees - ie, someone piling up the listings and feedback while never or very infrequently paying fees. This is just an idea and not set in stone. Genuinely interested in feedback from our members.
