BartertownUK has launched
In cooperation with Bartertown, this UK equivilent has just hit the net.
BartertownUK has just been launched. "BartertownUK aims to be a euro-centric website that offers much of the functionality of our similarly-named partners across the pond, and offer a professional service for everything from buying, selling and trading those much needed books to miniatures to paintball gear to CCG/CMG.
BartertownUK has been formulated with the express consent of the owners and operators of Bartertown.com, and, although only minor affiliation exists (continue reading for more information), we embrace the spirit of brotherhood that naturally entails between our two sites. The creation of BartertownUK is in no way an attempt to threaten Bartertown.com for shares in the market – it has been created to do the exact opposite – to support and compliment it. For more information on our affiliation with Bartertown.com, some basic guidelines when using the website, and registering, please read on below.
BartertownUK, Bartertown.com and their relationship
It will be fairly obvious to you all by now that there is another 'Bartertown' branded website across the Pond in the United States. This website was created (With their express permission) based on the same name, branding, and forum rules system. Having said that, BartertownUK is in no other way affiliated with Bartertown.com. Certain similarities may exist, such as the logo, name, and members, but the power structure, finances, and decision making tree of both websites are entirely independent.
Having said that, both myself and Rudi, from Bartertown.com, share an agreement whereby we may consider consulting each other or cooperating in the case of bad trader reports and the like. In a similar vein – much dialogue has been conducted between myself and the aforementioned admin team of Bartertown.com discussing the idea from conception to launch, and I am most grateful for their input.
Cross-posting of your items on both the BartertownUK and Bartertown.com websites couldn't be encouraged more. Please, support both sites as much as you possibly can. This website was created simply to complement Bartertown.com by offering a more local service to the UK and Europe, it was in no way created to challenge Bartertown.com
