    DeLorean Directory Marketplace - Sell your DeLorean stuff

    Hey all,

    I love DMCTalk - TONS of great information... but sometimes it's hard to find the DeLorean stuff for sale. So we setup the DeLorean Directory Marketplace - www.DeLoreanDirectory.com/marketplace to give people a free place to sell and buy the DeLorean related stuff.

    If you have constructive feedback, please do share by emailing contact@DeLoreanDirectory.com.

    Thanks!

    There is literally a parts section on DMCTalk and a search feature.

    Another example of you reinventing the wheel?

    Not only that, parts for sale here you can see who they're from and how active they are which at least for me gives me piece of mind that I likely will not get burned, and to this day haven't and I've bought a lot here. What kind of system do you have in place for that? I don't even see any warnings about buying from and paying random people online... So, you're liable if someone runs off with my $?

    This is brilliant actually, I have to concede, because what I've always found rather difficult is scrolling down from the top of the main page and clicking on 'For Sale & Services / Want To Buy'...

    +1 on these comments. But I concede that often the for sale format on this site is a bit rough. Often a sale list is generated by a post then various members respond with their interest. Sometimes you have to go thru all the posts to see if a particular item is still available. Then again, you wonder if the person followed thru on their "I'll send you a PM" message. But I would much prefer that a better format be incorporated into this forum instead of a separate site. Perhaps the mediate concerns raised in this thread could be addressed on your new site by providing a seller reference profile where they might have feedback or link to their profile on this site. I suppose this could be an "improved" eBay option. On eBay you get tons of unrelated junk when you search DeLorean and often the items of interest are from low volume or first time sellers. My last thought is about the motivation. Would this site be entirely free or would there be some commission cost? For my part, I would like to hear the OP's thoughts on why, what, and how of the thinking behind the concept. I understand that this may open up a flood of criticism and unfavorable posts, but, given the commitment required to develop and maintain a site like this, even these comments should be considered.

    I applaud your efforts and design. Looks nice. As far as usefulness well only time will tell and I am not to judge.

    Although I will say please don't let any comments deter you or anyone else from making a "better Delorean related mouse trap." Please take all our comments as "constructive opinions" and make your own decisions. We have such a great community of people and wealth of knowledge that kudos to you for throwing something out there and seeing what people think.

    With that being said, regardless of the forum I personally think Ryan S. does a fantastic job in how he posts his item for sale. Clear, concise and easy to track. Addresses a lot of concerns mentioned herein. Check it out...

    Yes, please do not take offense from my post, Iím only showing you that you might want to have some kind of warning statement and a way to have feedback so people can feel more confident when buying.

    I agree with this; Ryan S's thread above should be a model for how For Sale threads need to be managed.

    Maybe you should stop complaining as it was not very long ago you gave someone shit for how they put in the effort to make individual for sale threads. An effort that was to make those for sale items clearer for everyone to follow and stay up to date on. Just like Ryan S's format does and that gets praised by others in this particular thread.

    I would welcome a tutorial!

    I actually think Ryan's format was much easier than spamming the group with threads for individual items for sale.

    I didn't give anyone 'shit', I was actually asking a genuine question. It seemed like a burden to the person creating the threads to keep on top of them and maintain every individual thread.

    Also, good job using the search feature that I referenced to find quotes to use in your response.

    I have no idea who you are.
