Swapping interest?
« on: January 24, 2013, 10:13:12 AM »

Is there any interest in swapping here at TTB?

I have a module that could be added for that purpose but first I'd like to know if there's any interest.

Please respond to this topic with your thoughts and to let me know if you're interested.

Any other requests? If so, please start a new topic under this Requests category. We aim to please whenever and wherever we can. :)

Yes, I'm interested in this. I have a few things that I'd love to swap or just pass along to someone who'd like to have them. I've read a little about swapping at MUA, but never participated. It seemed kind of complicated with the "tokens" and all.

I have not swapped anywhere else either, but I would absolutely trust my friends here for this.  I might not have a huge list of items to offer, but I am a bargain hunter.  Show me the goods and I'd probably buy!

I try to be careful with my purchases, but now and then I end up with something that doesn't work for me.  I would definitely participate in this venture. :)

I would love to be able to swap here!  Yes vote me in, please!

But curious, would we be able to search by brand, category, etc?  Just wondering how it would be organized.  Still interested, regardless.

It looks like there's some real interest. That's great!

Marci65, I haven't looked at the module in a while so I don't recall exactly what kind of sorting and/or searching capabilities it has. I'll be dusting it off and taking a look at it this weekend and will get back to you.

There are still a few issues with the module that need to be worked out so it will be a while before it is ready for prime time. I'm working on it in a test environment for now so that when it finally becomes part of the live world of TTB it is, hopefully, bug free.

Marci65 - With apologies for the delay in responding to your question, search is definitely a feature.
