Lower the rep requirement for selling items on the marketplace.

Hey all,

 

My suggestion is to lower the rep requirement for selling items on the marketplace from 75 to 35 (what it was on OCN). Since I've joined, everyone has been very generous and given me quite a bit of rep very fast but I am still below the requirement.

 

You see, I have a ton of tech items I am looking to sell- keyboards, a box of fans, cables, a Asus AC-5300u Tri-Band gaming router (one of the ones with like 8 antennas), a mousepad, a monitor and possibly other items (a Corsair C70 Case but shipping is a no go on that one so it'd have to be local only). I might also sell my custom PSP Go.

 

I know I could pay for bronze and then have access to selling on the marketplace, but..

 

My other suggestion is to change the donation system to allow one-time donations instead of a recurring donation monthly, as I would be willing to donate $50 or maybe $100 just one time.

 

Thanks for the consideration.

I have no problems with anything you recommended, up to the big man though @ENTERPRISE. Though there have been a few transactions on the marketplace since it's inception, you may find it hard to move product here until we have garnered a larger member base. 

 

As far as the one time donation, that is a great idea which used to be an option, but I can no longer find. You seem to be finding your place in the community just fine and you should consider doing the bronze option as you mentioned, you need not renew if you choose so.

Hey bud, 

 

Let me have a sit down and think about this one, I am not against the change but I want to think about it first before doing anything hasty.  More on this soon.

 

So far as the donation system, we did have a one-off donation page but it was inadvertently hidden when we made some changes. You can now find it here:  https://forums.extremehw.net/clients/donations/

 

Or you can find it on the navbar Store>One-Off Donations 

 

Thanks for bringing that up as I would not have realised otherwise 🙂

Will probably donate one time on Thursday when wife and I get paid and she gets a phat bonus. She's an accountant for research administration grants at a large university. She's been doing half her bosses job and doing her bosses meetings for months now and it's expected to continue through February at least so she got a raise and another bonus. We also need to donate to a food bank, but this is all gonna depend on if we have to pay my effing sisters rent again this month. 😕

 

Aside from that- maybe meet in the middle and lower the requirement to 50 rep instead of 75? I think if someone has 50 rep they are an active contributor and can be trusted, maybe moreso than 35. If this sounds better to you, maybe that's the way to go. I mean, I have 50 but that's cuz everyone here knows me from OCN and has been generous. A newcomer may have trouble getting 35, let alone 50. And having more people selling stuff in the marketplace benefits the site directly because of the 2% paid to EHW so it's beneficial for paying hosting bills or whatever else the money gets used for.

After having a look into this and looking at some averages, I have decided to make the MP more accessible for non premium accounts by bringing the requirement down to 45 Thanks/Respect points 🙂
