This new format is definitely more difficult to read and browse. I'll give it a bit of time, though.
From a small-time thrifter's perspective, the B&S stuff also has me posting more back at AAAC's thrift exchange and even Ebay - I finally broke down and linked my paypal account for auto-payment of seller fees, that's how much it pushed me to Ebay. I can't help but think prices on the exchange are going to have to go up to cover the new "more-than-once-a-week-bump" fees - hopefully it keeps SF afloat at least - a bit of revenue off of fewer items is better than no revenue off of more items from their perspective. For a few things it may still make sense, and I'm sure the big-time sellers will be fine, but it just seems like a good bit more work now for a small-time thrifter - not as much as Ebay maybe (and the fees aren't on the same level yet) but it's definitely getting there. Any of you guys have thoughts on that from our somewhat unique perspective? Nat, I know you post everything on ebay *already* - are you going to also create listings here like you used to?
Honestly, I'm more concerned about this as a buyer.
I assume I'll get used to browsing the new B&S section format eventually, but I worry that it might push some people away from listing stuff here.
The B&S section is by far the part of this site I browse the most, I've gotten some great deals on it, and unlike ebay I've never had a problem with any seller or buyer.
(and WGP- I'm not sure if I ever thanked you via PM, but that BB sport coat you sold me a couple months ago is exactly what I was looking for, thanks!)
