We could possibly have "work wanted" and "work available" sub sections but I'm not convinced there's enough traffic to make it worthwhile.
I'm sorry John I musta forgot that's your job.
I accept that my wording was wrong but it is a section that covers a lot of subjects and is cluttered in my opinion.
re the work wanted It's not a bigee for me as I get my work outside of this forum. On the occasion's I've been looking for a driver it would have been far easier for me to hit a drivers available section stating qualifications, experience and stuff and then contact the driver than to have to wade through CV's.
Let's take Cookies posting it will be buried in a month therefore anyone looking for a Commercial Yachtmaster would miss out on a very good one Unless they had super forum searching powers.
I don't know what your plans are for growing the forum or getting more trade members but It strikes me that that Ribworks has a lot more corporte money thrown at it than Ribx so maybe the commercial section could be worthy of some elevated managerial attention
Having said that. It's your ball you play with it how you want
