|Could you tell us the average daily number of visitors at the marketplace before and after the big change?
|I don't have that info but...||gregg|

|...I'm sure it's lower, if that's what you mean. Obviously, we expected a significant drop in traffic. It's only natural for people who are getting something for free, to not want to pay and then leave. Of course, it's still free to browse!

|So was that the goal? To make up for the loss of traffic by charging merchants/shops to sell there products, or do you expect the people to slowly come back?
Im just bummed. I always told people how cool these two (mtbr & rbr) sites were to buy stuff on for cheap, now I cant say that anymore.
|the purpose was to offer a better service.....||gregg|

|...and for us to stay in business at the same time.
The new classifieds has way more features than the old one, and has better safe guards against getting ripped off. In the old, anything goes type board that we had, there were cases upon cases of people getting ripped off or shipped boxes of rocks, etc...
We feel that we have a marketplace with more features and a more secure environment. Like I've said, it's not perfect, and we're working on several of the known issues.
