Yup.. I worded that poorly. We'll make that exclusion permanent.

Not to beat this to death but can we clarify what a dealer is? With the amount of folks who make custom parts and the amount of massive whoring that goes on here I think it's kind of gray.

For example, I semi-regularly make a few odd and ends and sell them off. I guess if it was my intention to continue to produce said parts (eg.. an infinite supply) then I should post a thread in the dealers forum. If it's a one time run and I'm just selling off the limited (small quantity) supply that I made it's ok to go in the general BST?

I am not a dealer so can I still make a few bucks shilling for those who are?

My real question is - Is it okay for me to mention that Titus or somebody sells a part? Sometimes this is in the WTB, but other times somebody will ask in another section and I point out that X sells that part. Is that a problem?

I would think so. For instance. You just made a run of the wood grips, maybe 5 sets or so, I don't see any issue with that being in the BST. The real issue is people selling stuff all the time and it spilling into non bst sections. If you don't have a continuous inventory, are not a dealer for other companies, and do not solicit outside of the bst you should have no issues.

While it should be fine to mention to people that you can get part "A" from places X, Y, and Z, we should not be continually pointing to one spot. Additionally, if someone is always selling stuff as a store, dealer, or vendor, then they should spend some time making an inventory or something so people can find said goods instead of posting in countless threads outside of the BST. The entire issue is a lot of things were spilling over into non bst areas.

I wonder if there might be a way that dealers with regular inventory might get a "table" so to speak in the store? Or would that be getting complicated again?

I think a single stickied thread or post that only they could add to/edit would be awesome. I would love to see a list of inventory without all the clutter of discussions.

Maybe dealers could, I don't know, have a web site or something...

Just readed this and I see why one post was moved :P allright

Spoon I have that here but I can't keep it updated on prices and can't list everything in one sectionas you would search a while to see if I have it listed.

Inventory is really hard for a seller to have if he doesn't do alots of sale out of them. Im going to a virtual inventory instead and only shelf inventory on hot products or items I can't get drop shipped.

I agree with this.

I think the regulars on here pretty much know who the regular dealers are and what sort of stuff they carry. Unfortunately the dealer's section does get (what I would consider) spammed with a lot of 1-offs or people who come on here to do one bulk store liquidation or whathaveyou then disappear.

If the target market is the forum regulars...they probably already know. If it's the random bluenames looking for something, a webstore is probably easier to manage and get Google results for, etc.
