A new section?

What do members think about the possibility of us having a new section 'I DON'T WANT IT YOU CAN HAVE IT'?  If we think its worth a try, then in it, we could list items that are surplus to requirements. No money would change hands with the possible exception of postage and it could be a useful feature on the site, where members could pass on unwanted items.

Its up to everyone to decide individually, but I personally, would give priority to those who I consider to be active members and regular contributers. It could help to promote our already strong community spirit. How soppy is that then?

If we were to go ahead with this , then the new section would be totally seperate from the Trading Section. Its just a thought for the moment but like most people it would be nice to have somewhere to unload our useful rubbish. You might not have a need for it right now but possibly in the future, you might have a use for it as a giver or a reciever, who knows?

I think its an excellent idea - an OTG freecycle
MrsWW

Brilliant idea - like Debbie says, OTG Freecycle.  I think postage/carriage would have to be paid by the recipient of whatever though to make things fair.
Spaniels

what a great idea
bodger

Do you think we'd get away with using the words 'freecycle' in the title, or is it a protected name?
MrsWW

How about OTGcycleforfree ?
debbie

OTG recycleforfree?

According to http://www.freecycle.org/faq/faq/eu_trademark

"The Freecycle Network® is incorporated as a nonprofit organization, and the Freecycle name and logo are both trademark protected."

"Give Or Take" sounds good - OTG initials just the wrong way round

Nope you wouldn't get away it, freecycle is American and comes with lawyers to protect the trademark!

Why not just the old tag:

renew, reuse and recycle

This includes the potential to offer stuff that perhaps needs some repair that is beyond the owner's skill but considered simple to some of our handier forum users!  
Bazzer

Got to be worth a go.
Great idea.
Juli

I offer, you take

bodger

Maybe ' I don't want it so you can have it' is a bit bulky, so lets make it short and sweet, how about 'Freebie'?
mogs

Bazzer
