Palm Exchange suggestion

7 posts in this topic

Posted (edited)

I think the Palm Exchange could be improved if it were restructured. Currently the subforums are as follows:

  • For Sale
  • For Trade
  • Plants Wanted
  • Freebies
  • Palm Grower/Buyer Ratings

Shipping typically isn't an option when you buy palms so it makes a big difference where the palm for sale/trade/wanted/free is located. I regularly find myself clicking into threads offering palms for sale just to see they're in California and immediately close the thread. In consideration of this, I believe the Palm Exchange would be more efficient if it were restructured to be location based.  Here are the subforums I propose:

  • California
  • Florida
  • Texas
  • Other
  • Palm Grower/Buyer Ratings

A worthy suggestion as I end up doing the same.  Even if the threads were tagged with the location and a "no shipping" or "shipping available", it would help those of us browsing for a deal.

You both live in Florida. There are nurseries here that have rare palms. See Grower Rating section. We grow them faster and you can assimilate quite the collection rapidly at a lesser cost.

There is a new IPS website that has been in the works for some time now. I am under the impression that it was proposed to have in it a more detailed For Sale section and even auctions. But that is not something I know anything about.

Ahh, cool. Thanks Dean. :)

The majority of plants for sale on PalmTalk are located in Florida and California, but as an International forum I don't feel it would be right to create 'local' forums whereby only 2 or 3 locales are presented to a worldwide community. A revamped Palm Exchange should ideally be run on a classified ads platform to allow all the benefits of online shopping. Just my 2 cents. :)

I agree John.

I, for one, would always do what I can to keep the "International" in the International Palm Society.
