a marketplace forum!
what does everyone think?

Well, the idea is sound. However, without jusun's approval, you can't really use the site for selling stuff.

I believe this has been suggested before as well.

oo yea, there is micron
manny-the-dino
Yeah I remember Jusun saying he wanted to do it or was going to but he's not here. "/
KINGdinguhling
bad idea, half the items are gonna be illegal
butre
What could we sell other than crappy t shirts?
butre
That's too obvious. Be original.
Simba
wow it always comes down to Jusun and him never being here and us not being able to do crap because of that


he needs to relinquish ownership of cB
butre
Immediately thought of sex.
brooklyneast05
yeah i think this was jusun's plan before he decided to run off again


what a surprising turn of events

I dont think cb wants to get into that?! If someone wants to buy services they can pm someone!

And if someone wants a service for layouts or graphics, that's what the request forum is for.
And if we end up getting a marketplace forum added, the staff is going to have to work harder to make sure nobody posts something thats probably illegal. I mean, they already have enough problems with people doing that already.

more than just layout, like wordpress, joomla, phpBB3 themes etc.. The wordpress submission has major problems that Jusun should fix. No one ever goes and does anything on the request forums anyways cause no ones getting paid, I have wordpress themes i could sell. It seems like a lot of forums have theses and maybe we could open up new staff positions for marketplace forum, seeming that many people want to be on staff anyways like KINGdinguhling

Also, JC mentioned Jusun had an idea of making this happen with cb 4.5, but then soon vanished. It would be a part of createblog, not the forums. That way, it gets more exposure to visitors.

kind of like themeforest.net?

This is Jusun's block. No matter what individual profits off from the marketplace, he's going to take a percentage off the top.

Well, that's what I'd expect someone in his shoes to do.
manny-the-dino
The reason Jusun wanted to have a marketplace is so that "'online celebs' might be interested in the new marketplace to request a custom (unique) layout for them, and in turn tell other people about us ... this will help spread the word about cb again, which will help boost our pagerank (on google) since these newly introduced people will most likly pass the link along to their spheres of influence (afterall, we ARE the BEST myspace layout design site), which will in turn will bring in even more new people."

Straight from Jusun himself. So basically it'd be more geared toward design related things.

That makes sense. Dude will make bank with that.

BACK LIKE COOKED CRACK: CB09 EDITION

Well if he starts this up, he'll have to stay around the maintain it. And he hasn't really shown anyone that he can do that. Like everything, there are probably going to be a few glitches in how it works, and he will be the only one who can fix it. I don't want it to be a case where people get pissed at mods and end up disliking cb because Jusun is the only one who can fix/change things.

Real talk. I know you're not trying to bash dude, but you really put him out there by simply being truthful. I wonder what keeps him so busy?

I completely understand that it's a lot of work to run a place like cb and still be able to keep up with your personal life, but I also think he would be able to make it a little easier on himself if he gave admins more power (which we lost after the Suz issue). Admins could look over the forum and profiles part of cb and he could take care of the marketplace and submissions side of it. He'd cut out a lot of work. If I were him I wouldn't be able to enjoy this place, because every time he comes here there is a list of technical stuff he has to do.
brooklyneast05
for real. i don't have sympathy for him because he makes it hard on himself. all he has to do is give our admins enough power to actually run this place right and everyone would stop bitching at him for constantly running off. it would be great if our staff could really do the things they want to do.

no offense to whatever his problems are but i have had family problems and it never made it where i couldn't take 5 minutes at some point in a few months to respond to someone's messages/emails/calls mellow.gif especially when those are people who are running something that makes me money. i'm just saying.

idk i just think he makes it a more frustrating situation that it needs to be for the reason dee said. it would be better off to hand over some power to someone imo

I think jusun has trust issues this site probably pays all his bills. I don't think he wants someone to be able to take that away from him.

Can you really blame him, given the history of some of the shit people have pulled around here?

If Jusun is really serious about making this a "big" site and implementing all he wants to -- and if he's serious about making money off of it -- he really should just turn it into a business, and hire some help. Yeah, truth be told, I wouldn't necessarily just trust some kid off the street, either -- but if he "real" employees and a paid staff, he could be more discerning in who he picked.

Hell, I'd work for Jusun, even if it was only part-time.
fameONE
QUOTE(divergent @ Feb 1 2009, 02:20 AM) *
^ I know what you mean dee I sent him a pm the last time that he was around that he should give admins more ability and explained not everyones gonna pull a suzette on this place. I never did get a reply back from him about it though. But most sites have co-admins we had that when trish was here but we drove her off... I think jusun has trust issues this site probably pays all his bills. I don't think he wants someone to be able to take that away from him.

I know for a fact that Jusun trusted Trish with a lot. And if she were still active on this site, she could probably help with a lot. For example; a change to cB 4.5.
karmakiller
Eh, no use in us sitting here talking about it. Unless one of us is a genie and can grant Admins more power, haha. I mean, I feel bad when someone comes up with a cool idea and everyone is all "yeah! lets do it!" and I have to come in and kill it by telling them we have to wait for him.

This topic kind of got derailed...

Yeah, I feel ya. Everytime someone has a good idea, I think, "Hells yeah, that'd be easy to do," except outside of some minor forum configuration, no one can actually do anything...

I think Jusun's a great guy and all, I really do, but sometimes a part of me thinks that a bunch of CBers should just break off and create a new community. We have a few programmers to write software, a lot of talented designers; it'd take a good deal of time, but it wouldn't be too hard to do. But, ah, I'd hate to see this place just...die (even if most people moved to a new community), and I'm going off on a tangent anyway.

If this site does as well as I've been told, or if it can actually be as big as Jusun seems to think it can be; why not have a paid staff? Like you, I'd work for dude.

I've always thought that the staff should be paid somehow

I think the same thing too, I wonder what would happen if there was a new site like cB. Honestly this place hasnt really improved the whole time I was a member except for a redesign a couple months back. Admins should really get paid too, I mean with all the shit that they have to endure on this place. I'm sorry if I made a completely useless topic, I always thought admin's had full control over forums, just not the entire site, well then we should bury this thread and resurrect it later before it turns into a Jusun performance thread :]
KINGdinguhling
so is there like something jusun could do to transfer powers like in power rangers
karmakiller
Or he could just give us more controls in the AdminCP thumbsup.gif

Soooo since we've all agreed there isn't anything else we can do I guess when he comes back we'll bump this topic.
Tung
Last time he gave admins that much power, you all know what happened. aniwink.gif

Have some tact, Thomas, lol.

Nah I don't think Dani or Rebs or I would do something like that. It'd take too much time.

You know what Michael....why can't we break off and start our own site to rival cb? Maybe then Jusun would actually grow a pair and come back and start doing things.

DoubleJ
I think we do have some dedicated people here who could commit to it though. The current staff with a few members...Hell even Thomas could join in on the fun! All jokes aside, I think that some of us should think about this.
DoubleJ
I think that is why would should have a selective staff process to start things off. Only like people that are good at certain things and who would actually be around ya know.
brooklyneast05
i can't see people leaving ever working out really.
brooklyneast05
i would only favor that if the forums looked the same. i hate 99% of forums because they are annoying to use and this one is simple and nice. if the forums didn't look like this then i would abandon cb and then you guys would really have a shitty site.


jk


not about the first part though

QUOTE(divergent @ Feb 1 2009, 07:52 PM) *
haha, no, the queue here. On this site. Unless, abondoning that as well was part of the plan.

ooo, true but if we were to make cB our competition, we should abandon the que, however as much as we have the skills, we should also look into cost issues *if this goes through

as far as forums, I think this run on IPB, a license is like 100 something
brooklyneast05
i wouldn't wanna go anywhere if it didn't have the regular blue theme _unsure.gif


but that's beside the point because i don't think we're going anywhere anyway, but it would be interesting if you guys really did try to do that. i would wish you luck.

what about the servers? _unsure.gif

I mean this shit is out of control now. Maybe we should just cause our own carnage to cb. Like start doing crazy shit and running wild.
