Was there ever an idea on implementing a "Overclock.net like artisan program"?

Go to solution Solved by colonel_mortis,

On OCN, there are only two registered artisans (assuming the list in your first link is accurate, which I would hope it is). It's an interesting idea, but it would definitely need to get more use than that for it to be a sensible thing to implement.

I will discuss it internally though, and if anyone would be legitimately interested in selling please do let me know what sort of thing would make sense for you (what you would be offering, who you think you would be offering the services too, etc).

If you are not familiar with what artisan program is, go here

What it is, in a nutshell, is a program for members of the community who want to offer their products/services to other members. I am not one of those members who would use it as in selling my services, but perhaps we have members who'd like that? Example of an Artisan.

Anywho, just a thought which has been in my head for months now. 

The ability to google properly is a skill of its own.

Laptop docking area- 2 1440p korean monitors mounted, one AHVA matte, one samsung PLS gloss (very annoying, yes). Trashy Razer blackwidow chroma...I mean like the J key doesn't click anymore. I got a model M i use on it to, but its time for a new keyboard. Some edgy Utechsmart mouse similar to g600. Hooked to laptop dock for both of my dell precision laptops. (not only docking area)

yah idk I just know the demand isn't the same as before. They used to just sell supplies for diy or make them by hand for you, which is really time consuming

I remember being excited every time I saw someone take the effort to make heatshrinkless sleeves.
How far we've come.

That is true, however, it seems to me that people might be interested if we're going by sheer number of sold items (this is only 2018). Hence my post. 

But of course, best for people to come front if they are interested.

I think something like this would be a nice addition to the Classifieds Section.

 

In classifieds if people wanted a specific service such as a custom discord bot for example then they could post a WTB with the title of the kind of service they require and others could read it and potential individuals who could offer that service could contact that person by PM to discuss and deal with the case.

 

Alternatively, a part could be added to the user profile to allow people to register their skills and programming languages/technologies they are familiar with although I believe the first idea I mentioned in the above paragraph would be a lot easier to implement.

Judge a product on its own merits AND the company that made it.

In general, that's not how it works.

You don't post WTB something random and wait for others to respond. You register yourself as an artisan for a yearly fee and then you sell specific service. You don't just register in a bit of programming, making cords, making mouse mats, etc, and then sell whatever you want. You sell specific products/crafts. That is I assume to protect in legal ways the forum and to reduce scamming. 

What you're suggesting is an open market, which is too complicated to do here in my opinion.

At the end of the day I think that an implementation of the Artisan system would be nice on LTT Forums.

 

I'm not necessarily sure that charging a fee for using it is necessarily the right thing to do considering Classifieds is currently very laisez faire and doesn't take any commission on any sale.

Charging a fee imo is not a bad thing, mostly because it will vastly reduce scamming since not everyone will want to register in that case, only people who are serious. It is a 2 way road, the program is, and I'm all up for a registration fee. 

Mind you, this is not the same thing as classifieds. Vastly different.

I know. I'm not sure I'd be willing to pay $100 USD or the equivalent to register though. If we're talking a yearly fee (or a one off fee) of $20 or something like that I'd be fine with that.
