Commerce as an Announcement

I'm seeing a lot of commerce threads that barely have any views and comments related to the item being sold. I think we should have an announcement thread where sellers can get more attention for their item. Vote for one of the options you likely support.

    The problem here doesn't lie in lack if publicity, but rather the target audience.
    People on the forum for the most part aren't going to take much notice in trading, given that trading requires both players to be in-game in the same world. It's easier to walk into a market world and repeat yourself over and over until someone bites.

    Anyone interested in trading for that item is going to be in a market world already.

    Not necessarily true. Maybe I only knew I wanted something when I saw the thread? Or the other way around, someone is buying something I am not consciously selling while on the forum?

    Alright this might sound a bit ironic since this is my thread and i voted yes.
    I'm sure that at least some forumers here are needing resources. You ever have that feeling where you've been in a market for hours, wanting to trade for a certain item. That nobody has at the time? We may even know that at certain times the trader isn't avaliable to be on the game at some time. Something that's common/uncommon but nobody is planning on trading it.
    On the forums however, you may get a shot at finding someone who has what you're looking for. Maybe even more than one forumer. I believe that when Summer hits, the more traders vary, but time is always between you and the trader. If we have a thread for commerce, we can expand the market and give a variety of offers that you can trade for.

    If you found you wanted something when you saw the thread, it would do better a single thread instead of a single pinned topic with everyones trade items cause you can see by the title what they are selling. The same goes for selling. The fact trade threads get so little attention is because nobody here is doing trading.

    me, being a huge trader, has got a lot to sell/buy, but only thing that is on market worlds is drama. i avoid them at all costs. i think this is a good idea.

    That's an interesting time you came at, are you sure the planets weren't lined up that moment?

    I believe a group chat would be more effective. Have people apply to join so that the trolls can be filtered out. I run into the problem of having difficulty finding people to trade with aswell. A group chat just seems better suited to the task at hand

    Meh. We have markets for a reason. I understand they are hectic but this could be just as hectic with spam and off-topic stuff like what happens with EVERY THREAD EVER ON THE DW FORUMS.

    There are lots of trade worlds, how about serious traders post what they sell/ buy and decide a market? Yorkshire or brass are always dead

    Also if you need a lot of one thing for a project world it would be useful to have a way to reach out to as many people as possible

    @Bastian7 had a trading world where he only added serious traders. I never ran into trolls when it was in use. It kind of died away though

    I think serious traders such as myself should trade in a specific world where they can trade. For example this is me.... GIMMIE EARTH NO DICKS BUYING EARTH
