Since I don’t usually see much stuff for sale here… either you all keep your leftovers, or it’s frowned upon on the forum. I was wondering if we should create a classifies section?


It’s come up before. Evidently, there is no separate board. There’s the occasional post from folks looking to sell/buy stuff though.

I don’t see a problem with it, but I don’t have the ability to create one. I’ve been on other forums where they’ve had classifieds and as far as I know, they’ve had little issues (mainly Car forums). I’ve done some deals on this site for stuff via PM, but that is it.

The difference on those car forums being–for the most part–that they’re not run by car manufacturers.

I have lots of leftover Z-wave stuff… the two Monster Illuminessence 4-button scene controllers below are those I’m most ready to part with. I usually post & hope at and some other forums, but they don’t get a lot of traffic. It would be handy if there were a classifieds section somewhere visible, but I understand why there’s not.

Folks just usually post here in the “General” sub-forum when they have something to sell. Of course, the post ends up getting buried when new threads get created.

I’m guessing though that most buyers would feel safer going through something like Ebay since it gives them purchase protection. The downside of course is that it cuts into the seller’s revenue.

But yeah, a separate classified subform would make a lot of sense. But since MCV also sells Z-wave stuff, not sure how willing they’d be to set one up.
