    Question Does anybody still trade Dept. patches & T-shirts?

    I have just launched a web site that contains a posting-type section ("Firefighters' Swap Shop"), where firefighters can trade FD patches, tees and other memorabilia with other firefighters. I use analytical software, so I can see that I am getting many visitors to the web site. They LOOK at the Swap Shop section, but they do not POST anything for trade. I was wondering if I should remove this section from the web site or give it more time. Any input would be appreciated.

    Thumbs up

    AFDMac, I posted in your swap meet, but couldn't find where it went. What do I click on to see what is available? Great site and excellent idea by the way.

    When you submit a post to the swap shop, it goes to the "back end" of the site. I look at them and approve them ... then they end up on the site. This keeps people from submitting ridiculous stuff like, I have: "skills", I want "bling!" That way I have control of what ends up on the site.

    Unfortunately, right now there are no posts ... yours will be the first. As more and more swap shop posts are added, you will see what is available. The web site is less than 3 weeks old, so we'll have to see if people use the swap shop or not.

    Thanks for submitting a post ... I'll look at it and add it to the site. Mac

    I'm glad that you like the web site. It has been a long process ... about a year of work. I am very happy with the way it turned out. I just need to get the word out about the site. I hope that Firefighter-Biz.com will one day be a household name, like Craig's List. Thanks for your input. Mac
