    What Happened to The Bench?

    I've been gone for a few years raising kids and fighting my now ex-wife in a divorce but I'm trying to rekindle my hobby. I noticed so many things are missing from the Bench, our trader points are no more? How do we gain access into the various halls of the HOF if we don't get trade points anymore?

    I don't think I'll miss bench bucks, but am very surprised about the good trader point system.

    Maybe I'm missing something somewhere where this is all explained, any info appreciated.

    The Trade Manager is not working....You can still see your Bench points for trades on your profile. By clicking on profile and then click about me..... You can see the issues further down from the thread you posted. They are currently trying to fix the problem with the trade manager...its been about 53 days. Nice to see you! Best regards, David

    I'm just going to come right out and say it. The site went to crap a couple of years ago. We used to have the benchies every year. Winners got a cool avatar on their sig. I won several and before I ever got my avatars, they shut it down. I'm not blaming anybody specifically, I realize this is a hobby for most everybody here, it just sucks how much fun it used to be here. Traffic here has decreased so much lately as well. Used to be the place to go for trading. No we have issues that people say should be an easy fix that linger on and on for months. Its just not what it used to be. Fortunately, most of us know each other so trading hasn't completely stopped. I'm sorry for ranting but it needed said. Welcome back!!
    I collect a little bit of everything...Always looking for Thome's that I dont have.

    There is a thread offering help to assist to help fix the code. Currently there is no indication that the site is being looked at because the owner - curated is not currently responding to multiple attempts by multiple people. My guess the site will live until the domain expires with the host.

    Does anyone have recommendations for a new trade site? I belong to SCF already. Anyone have a better one? I looked at blowout. They seem similar but about 90% of their posts were sales. I'm looking to trade or sell; not buy usually. Any suggestions?

    Thanks,

    Tom
