    We've received a ton of great feedback since the last round of beer trading changes and this past week I dropped some threads seeking more input. We're still exploring some of the items discussed (new thread quota, mods, Beer Trading 101, etc), but Jason and I talked yesterday and decided to make the following changes immediately.

    Beer Trading Rules & Info
    Replies are Back!
    • Users may now once again reply to ISO:FT requests. We realize that some fun may occur, but please use this privilege to ultimately help others.
    • The ISO:FT forum list view now defaults to sorted by "thread creation time" in "descending order." This means that threads will no longer be bumped when replied to.
    I hope this is a step in the right direction, and used to help us keep it in the right direction.

    More updates to follow, and thanks again to everyone who provided their feedback.

    Cheers!

    Thanks! Please try and make mods a priority in this case. Otherwise it will just go back to no replies again in the near future. Seems to be a reoccurring theme.

    I'm not a fan of mods, that's why I came here and not rate beer. It seems to create "a sense of being elite" also I hope people commenting on trade threads doesn't result in "thread shitting"

    Now that's an update I can get behind! Hope people will remember to be civil. What has been given can easily be taken away. Again.

    I love the lack of bumping. Also, it is good to read that there is an expectation of fun in the threads, as well. With that said, let's be sure to not let the fun get out of hand.

    Question: what about trades seeking glassware? Will those be deleted? Just asking because I was thinking of posting one :)

    Awesome! I like having replies, but don't like threads getting bumped because of replies.

    Removing likes from the ISO:FT forum is genius. I haven't seen this posted anywhere, but I think it'll help tremendously to cut down on trolling.

    While the default sort order for the ISO:FT forum is by "thread creation time" I noticed that here:

    http://beeradvocate.com/community/

    The post that shows up for me first in the Beer Trading sub-category is the most recent one that was replied to, not thread creation time. I understand that this is difficult to account for since it is pulling from threads that have different sort orders but just wanted to make sure that you were aware of it.

    (sorry this is poorly worded but I think you can understand what I mean).

    Correct. This default sorting only applies to ISO:FT.

    IMO, Good stuff except the min 3 posts rule for old timers. I have been here for YEARS and posted hundreds of reviews and to many other threads. Why must I start over just to trade a few beers?

    To keep the rules fair and consistent, we apply them to all users.

    Looks like you've already met the criteria to post too.
