After some looking and searching on the watchnet site, several other things come to mind. Â I like the fact that this forum is rather "personal"...in the sense that over time (and between posts/readings) you get an "idea" of the people on here. Â (For instance...I know that so-and-so does more street/casual wear and that so-and-so does more of the Kiton/Brioni conservative thing, per se. Â Furthermore, I know that x lives in nyc and prefers store-Y over Century 21. Â Also, that z is in college and likes this brand because its affordable and good quality. I relate to them and enjoy their posts because Im also in college and live in nyc.) Â It would definitely change if we open a for sale category with open access. But yeah, one gets used-to and expects posts/replies from certain people, while establishing a rapport with all regular members. It's like a small neighborhood-community place. Â And yes...though the site is not flooded with posts, I prefer it this way, unlike other forums I frequent. This site is my secret, and though Im rather new...I pay special attention and comment when I can. (I can't wait until I graduate and start making 6-figure salaries.) Â =] Â I don't think it would be the same with 1000 of other members. Im afraid it would get cluttered, with random people registering simply to "get rid" of something. This would open the lid for scam-like behavior, too. Though there are some nice deals on watchnet, there are way TOO many sellers. Â Whom could I trust there? Â Also...Im no expert...how would I know if I was purchasing authentic or not? I wouldn't want the same to happen here.
