Right now, you can see an example of how it works out on the left sidebar:
For those in doubt, these are the abbreviations:
WTB = Want to buy
WTS = Want to sell
Unfortunately, the system isn't set up in a way, so that you'll all be able to put up items on your own. This is a decision made from Shivtr's side, and something we can't change. But ask an Officer to put up your item, and they'll be more than happy to do so.
If you click one of the items, you will be taken to its Item Description, where you can check out any other info the seller or buyer might have supplied.
You can use the yellow hand underneath Wanters to indicate that you want to buy the item or that you want to sell what's requested.
If you click more on the left sidebar, you'll be taken to a view of all the trades currently going on.
You are still more than welcome to just use this forum section to post what you want to sell and want to buy. This is just a way to grab attention right from the front page, when a member visits.
Once in a while an Officer will look through the different posts that are in the section, and throw them in the bank, so your forum threads will grab the attention from the front page.
