I understand, Wayne. And I appreciate your response.

But it was a mistake when the 911SReg did it and it's a mistake here. By moving the WTB ads to their own forum, it guarantees that they'll be overlooked by almost everyone. Except the professional sellers of course. They'll certainly stop by. The end result is that we'll kill one of the best things about these forums - the ability to help each other find that rare and much needed part.

I'm not in the Porsche parts business. But I have an easy $100k in parts tucked away for my personal use. I can think of at least a dozen instances over the last couple years when I've reached out to a fellow forum member and offered to sell them something they really needed after stumbling across their WTB ad.

And now those days are over. Even with the best of intentions, I can promise you neither I, nor anyone else who doesn't sell parts for a living, will remember to check the WTB forums like we do the FS forums.

And as for the WTB ads cluttering up the For Sale forums. I call BS on anyone who makes that complaint. These forums are very busy. And there aren't more than a handful of WTB posts made on any given day. Passing them up could hardly be described as a hardship.

But your house, your rules. And, again, thanks for the response (and I noticed yours was the only response, because hardly anyone saw my post, because it's here in the WTB section).
