Dedicated run thread group under the Trade Federation section
« on: September 05, 2015, 01:00:28 PM »
It would be really great if there was a dedicated run thread group under the Trade Federation section.

Trying to find out which runs are open is difficult going through the Mining colony and each saber guild members group and trying to separate update notices and messages from the run topics and with some also in the Trade Federation section buy group.

It should be easier for members to give their money to the smiths who take the effort to create these unique hilts and props, which would seem to be better for everyone.

Guild members have the option of running Sale/run threads in their stores/sections. MC members are only allowed to solicit runs in the Trade Federation.

I realize that part, it just seems that it would be good to have a run board for those special events, they are hard to fins spread out everywhere.

I have to agree with you Ray.  It's hard to tell what's available, what's coming up, etc.  Some are open, some are closed, some seem to be in a perpetual state of "almost there".  It gets confusing.

Yep i also agree. a board or page for all runs being done by MC/ GUILD to post in would be way less hassle than checking through multiple MC and Guild pages. Probably the best idea I've seen in a while.  I only stumbled on the skinny flex run after it was posted up the ldm/mh gk3 too.
The runs would fill a whole lot faster if there was a go to page.
It's not hard to do and the MC members would still have to get permission to post up a run. It would also clear space in the lightsaber sales page as they wouldn't get pinned at the top.
I don't know, i gotta bad feeling about this!

I agree. It would be nice to be able to check one section and see available runs. Checking all the different sub-forums can become arduous.  ;)

I honestly don't think its that hard. Yeah, it can be fiddly, but its doable. It would be easier if there was a section dedicated to it, but it may not be worth it considering the relatively small amount of runs there are.

Just my 2 pence.

Perhaps a thread dedicated to links to each of the run threads (similar to the "Look what I found on Ebay" section) would be less of a "change" to the way things are done here, rather than a section specifically for the runs. That way they can all be found in one place, then 'click'... you're there. I think it would help create a better sense of awareness to these runs, especially for the newbies to the forums.

Would you find it easier if RUN THREADS had a [PREFIX] thread name or a thread icon ?
