It goes in spurts. But yes, it has been slow for a couple weeks now. I couldn't even give away Daisy Doodles last week!! :LOL

I think the problem is that the newbies can't see it, and they are the ones that are wanting to buy stuff off the TP so they can start their stashes for less. That's just my $.02.

That makes so much sense!!<br>
Didn't they use to be able to see the TP and PM if interested?<br>
I mean, I would not buy from a newbie, but I would have no problem selling to one (with funded paypal).

I am not looking, I am not looking, I am not looking....<br><br>
I am on the wagon. I have to stay far away from the TP.

I wanted to add that I think it has everything to do w/the newbie restriction. Although, ITA w/poli.

STOP IT!!! I CAN NOT go and look at a lonely KP sitting on the TP, ACK!!!<br><br>
I totally agree with everyone about the TP being slow because of the newbie block. It is a bad idea for this reason. Was the old way really that bad?

Yah I don't get it. I totally understand the idea about them not being able to sell things. But I must have totally missed why they can't buy things or post ISO threads now?????<br><br>
I don't get the problem with that. As long as they pay up front...how can people get screwed over? Maybe I'm missing something though.

If I remember correctly the reason for the tp restirctions is so people dont just come to mdc for the trading post. If they were allowed to go straight there after registering maybe they would bother looking around and joining in in the other forums. This way they have be part of the community first.<br><br>
Things did sell faster before though, thats for sure.<br><br>
eta<br>
so maybe the mods or cynthia noticed that the newbies were not participating around the other forums?? and thats why the block??

When I was newbie to MDc I really appreciated the TP. It allowed me to try so many different kinds of dipes. I just pm'ed the mamas who had items of interest. It would be helpful to new mamas to browse the TP.<br><br>
