after much discussion with the moderators, we’ve decided to make some minor changes to keep lines focussed on creativity and reduce gear-acquisition distraction (two goals which the members of this forum have widely vocalized).
- trade category threads are no longer present in the “latest” posts page (the default lines landing). you’ll need to manually click the trade category to view listings.
- trade category viewing is no longer visible to unregistered users. this is to discourage newcomers from seeing trade as the primary purpose of the forum.
- there’s a small template text for new trade posts as a reminder.
we’re of course happy to hear any comments and concerns about this issue.
thank you for helping build such a dynamic community driven by positivity!
