I know ATS doesn't approve of recruiting for militant style organizations or similar on the site, but I was wondering how many people would be
interested, providing this IS within the limits of the TOS, in starting up a sort of Frappr map or other local trading system for the users of the
survival forum. I know a lot of people here are talking about the foodstuffs they produce, along with the various other skills we have between us, and
it might be beneficial, if we have enough people local enough to each other to start some kind of loose trade and barter association, especially given
the tight financial times..
For example, I'm an artist/crafter, I often take worn, tired items from thrift stores or simply found objects, and turn them into something new,
pretty or useful. I paint and draw to order too, including tattoo designs. I'd be amenable to trading my skills, and the things I produce, to others,
for whatever they'd be willing to trade.. Strictly non-monetary trades, and while I'm aware craigslist has this sort of function, in practice I've
found that there's really nothing there that I want or can use.. I'd rather trade something I made for someone else's home grown veggies, for
Right now this is just an idea, with two basic questions (a) is this ok with ATS, ie, if we start something here, it's not against the TOS, and (b)
if so, would people be interested?
