    Gonna try something with Ebay

    I have something I've been wanting to try with Ebay.

    Basically I'm going to make a forum (haven't decided on name yet, something dumb like Van Halen on Ebay), have it pull anything VH related from Ebay's listings and make a thread for each thing. I can do it for anything, but I thought I would start with Van Halen and see if generates anyone looking at it. I don't know how often people look for VH-related stuff on there, but thought it might be a cool idea.

    I can probably do it for other stuff, but obviously since this is a VH site, that makes the most sense.

    So look for that in the next couple of days on here.

    Mmmmk. Bye.

    Quick thought, Brett:

    How much bandwith(?) will this take if you generate a new thread for EACH item?

    I mean, do you really want 37 individual threads JUST for OU812 and VH3 cd's?

    I obviously don't know how the software works, but would it be any easier to compile thread "categories" -- such as music, clothing, memorabilia, and guitar-related items -- and then dump the individual listings into ONE new thread each day in each category?

    I dunno...just thinking out loud...

    It shouldn't be an issue, we have a ton of bandwidth and threads don't use up that much. I haven't decided exactly how I'm going to do it yet atually.

    But I know, do we really need OU812 and VH 3 CD's on here at all actually. I may do it differerntly, have to think about it.

    Good points though, thanks!

    Or...

    Taking hubs' idea and running with it...

    I know in the Guitar Room there is the Ebay/For Sale thread. Why don't have a For Sale section like "Play Ball". In there, people could list their stuff for sale or if they see something cool that somebody else might like, they could post the link to ebay/craigslist/whatever where it's at... People that are interested would respond in the thread to ask questions/comments/etc...

    The less complicated, the better...

    Stop it right now.

    OU812 is a good album.
