I'd be more interested in a straight "for sale/wanted" list. It's
simple enough to post a best-offer item, with a cutoff date if so
desired. Lots less maintenance, we could ask for stuff, and
participants can shape their sales to suit themselves. Plus, you don't
have to choose between becoming an auction caller and excluding our
Illinois-based brethren. ;)
I think some kind of dedicated intra-ClassicCmp trading forum is a
really groovy idea.
