    I can't see either the jpg's or pdf's. all six links give me:

    Audiokarma Home Audio Stereo Discussion Forums - Error

    This attachment cannot be shown at this time. Please try back later.

    unless there really is no barter section and it's a trick to show me all the advertiser banners?;)

    It looks like the links were broken following the software update. I re-uploaded the files in the 02-09-14 thread, so you should be able to see those. The .jpg or .png files do not appear as large in this new format as previous so the .pdf will probably be better for viewing and enlarging.

    Curious, how is this barter town thing working out for folks? Generating lots of business? Worth the subscription?

    Which Admin do I PM when my paypal account was debited for my membership renewal automatically, but it was not applied to my account? I cannot get to barter town or the like.

    It's almost the same thing over at the Polk Site. Here you pay $25 to be a member. At the Polk site you need at least 100 posts to start to sell stuff in the for sale area and no fee involved.

    Sorry but that's incorrect, your a member, it didn't cost you anything to be one.

    However once a member you can Subscribe, this cost $25 for a year that gives you access to another 6 forums on the site.

    Also what other sites do is irrelevant here.

    This is AudioKarma; it has nothing to do with the Polk site and vice versa. Regular membership in AK is free. Please do not lightly brush aside the generosity of the owners and take for granted what is free. Running a site is a huge expense of money and time. There is a wealth of information, assistance and sharing available here. If someone allows you to have dinner in their house every day but asks you to pay if you want to stay overnight, that is their choice.

    As for the $25 fee to be a subscriber; unless you have previously subscribed, on what basis can you judge on the value or compare to what is offered elsewhere?

    A final comment: please also do not overlook the fact that many AKers value the site and services and choose to subscribe and contribute to making this a popular choice, irrespective of whether they use BarterTown or not. There is value in knowing that the members who do contribute are folks who are willing to support and share; that they are not just a casual surfer looking to offload something and then disappear.

    Many links were broken and files lost when we moved to the new format, so I will post some info here. The attached .pdf is from a single page of one of the sub-categories in BT. The image posted is part of the top level view of BT.

    When you open the .pdf you should be able to increase the size ti better view the details.

    As a subscriber, I use Barter Town to find new homes for things I don't need -- mainly LPs and some accessories, and buy the occasional item. I see it as a hobby more than a business and figure I'm just a notch above breaking even after all the costs are figured in. But fellow subscribers seem happy when they find LPs they want on the lists I post. Also had some stuff to give away and found a fellow AKer nearby who was ready to adopt. Add in the entertainment value of the entire site and the $25 subscriber fee is money well spent.
