Speaking just for myself I can say the following.
This is a great idea and I applaud you for your hard work. However, 99.9 %
of the people on this forum know each other and know meteorites - we don't
buy or sell fake meteorites. In other words you're preaching to the choir.
You need to tell this to the millions out there buying off ebay (who are
the unknown buyers) and that will be hard to do.
What I mean is this, ebay does have it's share of issues but as someone who
has been selling on ebay since 1998 I can tell you it's worth it - It is at
least for me. I preface every ad I place on ebay with a short bio about
myself (a little annoying? maybe, but it works) and I sell a lot of
I would love to support your endeavor as I said it seems like a good idea,
but ebay reaches so many more people than your site. Even if all 1000
members of this forum signed up for your selling site it would be mush
easier to reach them by just placing an ad to this forum just like you did.
Anyway, good luck I hope you can somehow reach the masses as that's what it
would take for me to join.
