Ever since this was put in place, I have received exactly zero replies to my ISO posts. Before this I have always found what I was looking for. I know that I personally never browse the ISO forums, so how would I know if I had something that someone was looking for?

Can we reintegrate these? Please?

I try and remember to look but frequently forget. I don't remember even seeing an announcement that it was going to be changed and all of a sudden I niticed posts being moved. It took me a few days before I realized where they were being moved to.

I don't like it either, it was so much easier to be able to see the threads in the main trading post forum.

You know, I agree I don't like the separate area, I never remember to check it and when I do and I post something there it generally goes unanswered. And an added bonus it will give our lovely moderator a bit less work too

Im 100% in agree here. I have also found all of my ISO through the usual TP posting. Since the change I have had zero luck.

I agree. I get hardly any responses anymore and I know I never look in there unless I'm making a post. Kinda negates the whole purpose.

We need a poll on this. It was requested and seemed like a desired setup so it was done. Now it's no longer wanted? Even by those who requested it initially? Let's do a poll but that would be best in TP. I'll place it now and give it a week or so and see what the majority have to say.

I like it separate, am I the only weird one? The tp moves so fast it seems easier but I guess it only works if you remember to check both. I do but I can see not everyone doing so.

I like it separate too. The TP is so busy, especially when some mammas put 5 or 6 FS threads at one time: that adding the ISO will just make it busier. And who really looks past the top, 1st page?

I do I always enjoy reading the TP posts, I've found so much great stuff there. I still don't get the whole Crocs thing though... :

It might help if those who forget to check TPISO would subscribe to that forum and receive email notifications - using the daily or weekly update option would be possible.
