Mechanical and Electronic? Old and new? Buying and selling threads in one forum? Still allow people to double list in the proper forum?

- As far as double posting, you might want to make it a requirement to pick one or the other, but I don't think double posting would stress out the servers unnecessarily when you factor in the amount of said "classic" markers that are actually listed. Its probably not even 5%, so even if you double that its nothing. Just my opinion.
Really hope something comes into fruition. Cheers!
I'll throw in my three cents as well.
-The classic section should work the same as the gearbag section. If I have an HPA tank, I can list it in my gearbag sale thread AND the air systems thread. Double listing =
-No buying threads. All WTB go in the WTB section, period.
-There are very very few markers that are newer than '05 that are really considered to be classics, so I think we should have an "Older than 7 years or remake of a marker that is older than 7 years" to appease the people who bought SFL cockers (rich jerks.)
-If a marker doesn't meet the requirements, we simply move it to the electro or mechanical marker forum with all of the rest of the markers and send the thread starter a PM explaining why it was moved. If they make a compelling case, just move it back.
-I think having pump, electro and mechanical all in one forum will not be a problem simply because there are so few markers that will be posted in it. If you want to do subsections for each, that works too, but I don't have a problem with either way.
-Also, I think any classic marker that is still BNIB should be allowed to be posted in the classic section. I know people find markers every now and then in old proshops that never sold and bring them to the interwebs to sell. If the marker was discontinued 8 years ago, it's really hard to call it "brand new" despite it never having been used before.
