    Hi there,

    I administrated many vB Forums in the past and it always was fun. I don't want to start it alone, so I am searching for other guys that are on fire for the idea and want to make this thing happen.

    Idea is the following: I want to create a "Potluck" Forum where users can create threads for services they offer (like a BST) and can gain points for fullfilling these for other others. With these credits the can go on a "shopping spree" of other members offers. Offers could be link building, article writing, signature banner creations and / or wearing this banners in other forums and so on. This would reduce the costs of many IMers.

    Anyone with me and would have fun to create such a board? If you already own a vB license and want to use it for this tiny project even better.

    Just let me know what you'd could offer to join (like time for moderation, technical skills, vB license, time for engaging the community, marketing, and so on...)

    Barter is to use things that are not money. So, trade a hat for a blanket, as an example. Basically you are working for "credits" or maybe "bitcoin". :)
