    The idea of the flags is great, maybe we could have two? One for item location, one for shipping? With a little world for international, EU Flag for EU-only, or the same flag as the location for intra-shipping.

    That'd be a nice clean layout.

    The bitching about the new rules is because the 'layout' is ugly and hard to read, I would venture, and doesn't let you expand on anything.

    I think two flags would be overkill, but one might work. I'll look into it:yesway: No idea how feasible it was when I brought it up, but we'll soon find out, I suppose.

    Personally I'd want a posting form/template for the Classifieds that'd automate a lot of this stuff, but it'd be a clusterfuck to impliment and I don't know who'd code it, so...

    The flags thing sounds like a great idea actually.

    Also, to code something like that (template for the for sale section) shouldn't be too hard, hell if this forum was PHPBB3 I'd do it myself and pass on the code, but I'm not used to the inner workings of vBulletin.

    +1 to the idea of having the country in the trading section, the OP could put, as examples:

    VA, USA
    UK
    GER
    NL
    RU

    this would eliminate the need for people to actually go inside the thread to know whether it is being sold in their country or not :yesway:

    I'd like to suggest a "ss.org song of the month"-contest!
    There's so many great musicians here that contribute their songs on here that I thought it might be cool :hbang:
    Imagine Greg Pope vs IamLukas vs Diabolic5150 vs Bulb and every other musician here!!
    Maybe the prize could be (since there seems to be a problem with wd pickups) that the song will be featured as the title track on the front page, maybe with a little user-profile or an interview or something.

    That's a really neat idea:yesway: If the interview format works the way I think it does we could probably start right away too, sans prizes of course.

    Yeah, I'll just go ahead and start that right now:yesway: (with the proviso that the same artist can't win twice in a row, so Bulb doesn't take it every damn month:lol:)

    DDD, could you win "song of the month" if it wasn't just "your" song but your band's song? ie they helped write it.

    For sure - as long as you played some part in the writing/recording process in a band capacity then the song is eligible.

    The rules and nomination threads are up in the Recording forum now:yesway:
