I love it Jeff! I too said before you should charge. This is great, you can pay if you want to receive improved exposure or stay with the standard format. Please send me a PM with the details too.
Thanks,
Trevor

Jeff,

I've never supported this site? Hmm.....I wonder what I was doing being a moderator for 6 months then? Maybe if you weren't so insultive you'd get more paying customers?

Who sold you your first snake?

Corey

You were also the reason the site almost collapsed when you were relieved of your position, but this is no place to air this anyways, if you werent so arrogant I wouldnt even have had to respond to your thread in the first place... If you have never sold a single snake to a member like you claim why do you bother posting them for sale here anyways?? Im sure if I made a thread asking if people have bought a snake from you from a classified on the site it there would be at least 5.

or at least from your presence on the site period... What you wrote was pretty ignorant, not to mention off topic, how would you expect that I respond to something like that????

Jeff,

Excuse me? Maybe you should think that post over a little bit before you jump to conclusions! Sure people on this site have snakes of mine........but not one person who has ever emailed me directly off ssnakess.com (directly from the classified reply button) has purchased anything.

I'm getting pissed off so I'm not going to respond to anything else in this thread. I don't function well when I get pissy (as you know)........It's probably best if you don't keep this going.

Corey

He saw your ad and emailed you... How is this not a sale made off the classifieds??

So, if the classifieds were to go to a pay/user format I'd definately have to rethink my advertising options.


When was this thread even about charging for classifieds???

personally i think it is a great idea even if you dont make a sale it is great exposure , before i came to this site i didnt know any off the breeders like Corey Woods or Jeff Favelle so even though it might affect you directly it will affect you indirectly though word of mouth just the other day i was tell a friend that was looking in to getting a snake to check out jeffs and coreys website and look though ssnakess.com

This is a great idea, just as Jeff F has said time and again. I love that this site is always growing and changing to meet the members needs. Not too many forums of this nature are actually beneficial to its members, or willing to change to make it better for them. Please e-mail us and give us the details and we'll be right in line to do the same as Jeffn Keep up the good stuff!

I like the 2nd idea better. If everyone pays to have their own forum, eventually there will be dozens etc to go through. I would certainly rather look through ONE forum than the through 20+ to find a snake for sale.
However, I do like the idea of paying for having your own for sale list. It would reduce the total # of classified posts without making a million different forums for each member. Also, I think we should be able to make a search that is less than 4 letters! When I try a search for "boa" or even "amazon tree boa" or something, it won't let me because "boa" isn't long enough. That's always driven me nuts.

There IS no reply button, they need to e-mail you directly or though snakes, that is the only way for someone to get back to you.

But yeah, definitely don't start charging people 100$ for a 3 month classifieds membership. It would weed out the riff raff but frustrate everyone in the process .

Good Idea Jeff.......Send me a PM with all the info

As for Cory maybe if you did not post $15,000-$25,000 snakes you might sell more on here?

You have to think of it as a mini web site within the web site, the name is listed and what animals they work with / are breeding is listed in the descriptions, so if the person(s) who have these forums use them to there advantage they can basically cover all aspects of potential sales from ssnakess.com members in one place... Post who they are, what they are working with, what they currently have available, what they are expecting, shipping, terms, etc etc. Nowone has to go through dozens of forums, just the ones which may have animals they are interested in. It also can save the seller alot of time with emails like do you have, are you going to have, how do you ship, what methods of payment do you take, and helps the buyer because they dont have to leave the site or email to get this information. If you log every day and there is a new post the forum will be lit up, heck if you dont log for 5 days and there is a new post the forum will be lit up aswell so you can always see if there are new posts like every other forum Also there probably wont be dozens of them sold anyways, you can maybe expect to see 5 or 6 over the next few months if what i would assume would be bought.
