    Good idea, drive more traffic away from this site. I bet the sponsors are thrilled.

    @auto5 , you don't have to be freinds. You just have to go to the group and click the join button. then contact us through this site and ask to be added. Include your email, FB name, and Refuge username when you contact us.

    @hankyorke sponsors are already selling on FB. Many of them asked for a way to connect with refuge members on FB and sell items. Also, a lot of members here are buying and selling on FB and by having a double verified group of only refuge members, we are giving them another outlet to BST with fellow members.

    Why bifurcate? Seems it will only lessen traffic here at the classifieds and those who don't constantly facebook will miss out.

    Additionally, any movement on separating the calls for sale into its own section?

    I tried to search by Refuge Forums with no luck since group name is Duck Hunter's Refuge

    I'm in, thanks


    FYI... I suggest not having to approve each and every for sale post. Probably a default that's not been looked at.
