    How about a "first dibs" club?

    Anyone else tired of replying to an ad within minutes of it posting and still being the "third in line?"


    I'd like a "first dibs" club. A fixed amount of spots available, a joining fee of say $50 a month or $200 annual, and those people who join get an hour to view an ad before it's posted to the General public.

    Obviously this will never happen, but out of my frustration I decided to post suggestion anyway.

    Randy: A man's gotta eat, Julian.

    LoL I don't know man, having to stop what I'm doing and check the 'New Posts' every 20 mins or so, keeps me from working too hard and getting that notorious 'burnout'.

    I feel your pain though. I've seen some sweeeet deals come through, just to get me all excited cause it's exactly what will fill the empty spot in my SOUL, just to find out they're in Olympia and willing to drive to Lacey.

    Lets color code text based on each persons Area of Operation..

    Reminder that there are 13000+ people looking to buy and or sell... It's competitive no different then being late to the gun show! Quit you're bitching.

    Years ago, SGN had an "officers" area with special classifieds etc... That went down in a ball of flames.

    Bitching huh? It was kind of a joke of a suggestion. I only posted it because I thought it was funny that I actually thought of it after being frustrated at missing out on another deal.

    I think I remember hearing something about that. I'm suprised it didn't work out.

    Where would we send the money? Donation to the site? TA's pocket? I dont think I need to be in it though. I have more time than money, now if only people would start putting their price in hours, or days, then we could be talking.

    You know, there already is one. You're just not in it, and that's why you're third in line. :)

    I would take the money of course, because it was my idea. Or we could donate it to the site, that makes sense too.

    You're probably right. What's funny is that if there actually was a "First dibs club," I'd probably be to cheap to join.

    I believe the term is "Cash talks and bullshit walks" or "1st come 1st served." Until cash has traded hands the deal hasn't gone down!
