Clearance Rack!

Recommended Posts

I am not sure if this is the appropriate place to post this, however, I was wondering if there would ever be a time where the forum would consider creating a new topic area where people can post great online specials that they have run into? There have been countless times where I have been perusing the forum in the Rod Topic area where someone posted something they have come across and I bought it ASAP. I know there is a Swap Meet forum, however, this is guided more to individuals selling items rather than pointing out specials through other vendors. Thank you for your time and consideration.

I think that is a good idea. It won't be the most active forum but will be more active than some of the forums on here.

Post it in our Flea Market if you are just alerting the membership to a deal.

However, if you have any personal interest in the sale, that would be considered

a "promotion", which is prohibited without prior approval of the Administrator.

No, it would not be for personal promotion. I mean something like... I just saw that *** has so and so for 80 bucks! Or oh my God! Bass Pro has so an so for sale for one day only! Something along those lines... you know what I mean?

I was actually thinking on suggesting a sub-forum under the flea market, there's deals all over the net, with having the flea market section moving as it does, deal threads would get pushed out. Just like the curado thread

Not sure how this would even work? Might interfere with the sponsors of this site.

Sorry guys. We tried this once before, and it ended up being a bunch of site owners posting ads for their sites. When those were removed, they tried to disguise themselves and post under "anonymous" aliases. When that didn't work, they had their "prostaffers" and friends do the promoting for them.

It became a nightmare to try to keep things straight; to weed out the self-centered promos vs. the folks who were actually trying to help others, which was the intent to begin with.

I know you guys have good intentions, but when $$ is involved, you can count on people with vested interests to game the system.

And quite honestly, there are several excellent companies who have stepped up to the plate to support your site and keep it free (and running!). The very least you could do is throw a little love their way every now and then. :)

Thanks Glenn,

That make a lot of sense. I appreciate your response and I definitely understand how this would be taken advantage of. It's a shame that people cannot respect the purpose of forums or helping one another. A great example for my inquiry was the post the gentleman made about the last day on Overstockbaits.com 99cent sale.... I went straight to the sight and picked a few items that I needed. Thanks again for your response, I will be sure to be clicking on our sponsors also to see what is going on, as I really appreciate having this forum (especially for free!).

Culpritstore.com has hollow swimbaits for 1.99 for four and you get a hook. I picked up 12 packs in anticipation of the arrival of my Alabama rig. The clearance rack is a great idea. Keep it going
