    I wonder if to make things a bit easier and simpler for everyone, we use a basic format. Perhaps something like the following:

    I'll take XXXX from wxyz

    I OFFER XXXX

    I'm sure someone will think of a better format, but it would make things a little more obvious?

    Thanks decorum, that cleared things up a bit!

    Nagual, that seems like the simplest format to use, the only thing is that if someone wants to take something quickly then have a look around for what they have they would need to use two posts anyway.

    Wellll, they could fill in what they can, and where it comes to filling in what they offer, put TBC or something similar and then EDIT it in, so it all makes sense? To my mind that means it's all kept nice n neat, but then tis only a suggestion.. :)

    I'd rather it was kept to a 'I'll have it please post' then if when checked you were the first to post a 2nd post stating your gift on offer

    That way if two people ask for an item it shouldn't get messy - plus there is less to type if you need to get in quick with a request to take an item ;)

    what happens if nobody takes an offer of, for example, a kirikadashi. The whole thing may grind to a halt....

    No offense to Bushcraft Lad but I don't need another knife, so I'm poised and waiting to jump in here with what I have to offer. That smock would have been nice but I have several coats already.

    Great idea g4ghb and yes I can see how something like this could get confusing.

    So just to recap we're waiting on someone claiming Bushcraft Lad's kirikadashi knife with leather handle

    Over to you.
