View Full Version : New section

Iíd like to see a new section where people can post what they are good at and if they are willing to help other members..

For example: A section called Trades & Skills..

Inside the section it could be broke down to automotive repair, home improvement, landscaping, electronic repair, ect, ect, ect.. Then, inside of these threads people can post if they are willing or not to help in a certain category..

This way people donít have to post in the general section about needing their car fixed, house painted or grass cut..

Maybe even have a section where a member can request to have a job done.. Obviously asking for someone to smear peanut butter on your balls for your dog to lick off wonít be under home improvement so have a section where people can specifically ask for this..

I hate to say but BCM has actually made my life easier.. If the wife wants to build 4 new levels to our house I feel comfortable just coming here and asking for help.. It seems there is always someone who knows about the project Iím about to undertake..

Just my thought..

Thats not a 1/2 bad idea. Plus i know there are alot of people here that can/do/will cut deals at doing somethings at certain things.

Great idea, when it comes time to build my deck this summer I'd like to know who could possibly give me some guidance.

Great idea. I was going to post in spring about free firearms lessons, as I have access to a private range, and a few different styles of guns. If we had a forum like this, it would make it that much better. Great idea Seann.

But here is the problem, someone fvcks up someones car, lawn, etc. Then you have a section with people complaining.

Im not saying its an awful idea, just could be some complications.

Well, let's also make a "complain" about other members shoddy work section...:goof


In the threads, you should also give a price in beer cases/hamburgers at gilles/culvers a typical consult/job might run.

i really like this idea and I have commented on how much help I have had through the site. Even after spending too much with outside contractors I find out later on I could have had teh same if not better service by someone on the board so now I look here first. BCM=new yellow pages..

I think its a great idea. Have helped a few members with pricing on auto parts and services from Milwaukee to Green Bay.

Ditto on a great idea, but will this mess with any current sponsors?

slightly agree, but wouldnt you like to know if someone sucks at something? we all bash different shops in the area, Its just like feedback on ebay

Mr Twigbert

Well I see:

15 - Yay
0 - Nay
1 - People might *****

I'd like to see it happen to.. I've started to plan out my basement project and plan on requesting help/paid labor from my fellow members..

Where are we at on this? Is there something holding us back? I'm building a deck this summer and could use some help ideas and a section like this would be great.

I think we need to make sure it doesnt become an advertising section. if its just members posting about tips and such, thats one thing but businesses advertising is something else.

I agree. I just want it to be a place for BCM people to offer up skills and help to other BCM people.

Well you guys mod the chit out of this site.. I don't think that will be a big problem..

Is a guy saying "Hi, I am a computer programer but work on Fords on the side for extra cash" a business advertisement?

Or is it a way to help 'me' save money when my car dies? I know there are plenty of people who are willing to do work for great discounts on this site.. Maybe limit it to the people to have contributed $ to the site.. Thus, it should be fairly honest people..

good call, lots of great ideas, I think this needs to happen :)

Listen Yoo..

What do we have to do to make this happen? You want your grass cut? Fine, I'll send the wife over.. You want your oil changed? Fine, I'll send Lit666 over.. You want your wifes back rubbed? Fine, I'll be right over..

See, I'm willing to go the distance here.. Now you have to show some appreciation..

This is a great idea, I could use some help with my GTP - I'd rather trust someone who has credibility on here than take it to a shop and get ripped off.

MAKE IT HAPPEN!

twig, it didnt get 86'd just back burnered for the short time being. I suggest that if someone is looking for help with a task, post up asking and someone ALWAYS responds to it.
