I think there is one very significant MAJOR problem with all of these kind of systems, that being that "you cannot please all of the people all of the time".
I've used eBay, it works, its known, its good - but there are things there at infuriate me! I never used the classifieds on here, and did look at B/S but couldn't quite work it out - in all honesty though that was down to me not spending the time to work it out, not a failing of the system or rmWeb.
Im not trying to defend anyone here - or start an argument, but everyone needs to accept that no matter what Andy and the team come up with, some will like it, some will detest it, and some will sit in the middle. Its a fact of life. Therefore they need to go with whatever treads that fine line between working for rmWeb as a business/service, and working for the users. Personally I agree with Andy's comments - if there is going to be some system there for us then yes it should be reliable and easy to use, but it also needs to be safe for both/all parties, and I expect it to have a fee involved - remember we don't pay for rmWeb, but just because its free to us, doesn't mean its free to run - technology ALWAYS comes at cost, be it servers, software, updates and thats before the human element. Many people don't know or don't understand that there is always a cost involved somewhere.
From the sounds of it, a sensible decision has been made - its been tried, what was put forward did not work (for whatever reason(s)), so its time to move on. For those who want to know all about the new system, lets take a breath, give the guys sometime and have some of that stuff called patience ... it was in abundance years ago, but appears to have all but vanished in this day and age!
