Would require people to bother to correctly enter sizing into ad creation. Much like category type and tags... reminds me of my job where hardly anyone uses the damned database properly. Not sure if forum structure can easily handle all that, but I'm down. Styleforum's B&S used to be a clusterfuck of ad titles that didn't match their content and 234234234234 mismatched items in one post (See: SuFu). You'd also get tons of phantom ads where the items were sold. It's already a lot more user friendly. Some "powersellers" may argue that it's more work for them, but if you're a powerseller, it makes sense to spend a few moments creating useful ads. A lot of CM powersellers haven't had any issues, YMMV. Some forums I frequent require sold prices to be left in the ad to set a market price - not sure how people here would feel about that.

SuFu's marketplace is wayyyy less user friendly. It gets cross shopped sort of like the way SZ does: because they offer more of things that aren't as common here. SuFu has way more obscure runway shit and archived designer stuff. SZ has it's artisanal/drapey whatevers.

Arguing content and or prices is a different issue. I tried to get into Grailed and saw people selling used Chuck Taylors and thought "wtf this site is called 'grailed' and there's people selling things worth maybe $10."

Someone posted a used Old Navy Henley for $15 yesterday. WTF

The only thing I would suggest is a measuring guide for sellers. I've had something turn out 2" wider p2p because the seller either didn't lay it flat or just didn't know how to read numbers.

you can hide in Grailed, right under the pic

I just sent them an email and asked them and they said they don't have any fees. They make their money off the Direct selling page. 

 

 

banning them seems a bit drastic, unless they're still DMing members. They have some solid stuff on there and usually when I sell, items get as much attention on there as SF.

I should have been clearer: I meant in SF B/S/T, but thanks.

Grailed has been good. Some douche stole photos of my item that I sold a while back, I PM him and ask him to take them down, he replies back with snarky bullshit, I ask grailed to take his ad down, and after some back and forth they oblige and take the ad down. Good stuff. Who knows if the seller was even in possession of the item, or if he just straight up stole the photos from me to make a quick buck.

Just the fact that you can scroll through photos on grailed makes it better than here. That's the huge difference IMO. Here it takes 10 minutes to look at the same amount of items that would take one minute on ebay or grailed, etc. because you have to click on every thread here to see the photos.

There's no real feedback on grailed. Auto +1 when you buy or sell. There's a scammer on there and his feedback is still high and he has items listed.

Yup. If StyFo's classifieds switched to a 'gallery' format, forced sellers to plug basic item info into a database, and allowed us to browse by categories like designer, size, or even color, I'd have much less of a reason to use Grailed. But at the moment, as much as I hate to say it, Grailed's user experience blows StyFo's out of the water

I wish the admins would try to fix the marketplace here

The problem with that is that it would alienate a lot of buyers and sellers We tried to implement that system, but had huge backlash. Building a system from scratch is easier than changing an existing system. That goes double fora community. .We have a system that would work very well drafted, but it's a lot of development, and we'd need the will from our hosting to do this. A reason to purchase grailed with a earn out is that it has a lot of the features we'd need. There would be more to build though. Our stem would be both forum friendly and hilly filterable. The benefit of all worlds.

Just being able to sort by brand would be enough for me. Search function is okay for that but not as optimized as Grailed. It's also great that they have a closet and that you can elect to get an email when the price of an item in your closet drops. Little things add up to a better user experience.

A lot of people, especially in cm, love that. There are more surprises that way. There are pluses and minuses for each system.

Forthe time being you can use subscriptions for this. The forum format means that there are a lot of more generalized tools.

What do you mean by surprises? What do they love about it?
