what can we do for each other?

Roguewave was talking to me about Car clubs and how the Saab owners club apparently published a directory of members and what they would be willing to do to help out another member.
Why couldn't we do something similar on here?
Specifically - in the User CP, so it was displayed in your profile, there could be a little check list detailing what you would be willing to undertake to help another member. Specifically - in these days of online auctions - being willing to collect purchased items and hold for a fellow Ribnetter until they could arrange collection, help with parts, launching, local knowledge, emergency trailer, temporary storage or parking.
What does everyone else think?

Andy

Great idea Andy. Admin team can you do a poll of the members to see if its a goer? The examples shown by Andy are spot on and I'm sure there will be others but I do
Think we have to ascertain if its feasible.

Or create a new area for members asking for help along the lines you describe? I've picked stuff up for members before now it's no hassle and you never know when you might need a favour returned

Might be better if its a shout out tho as a refusal is sometimes hard to do

Good idea but isn't that what we do already, we all ask questions and most times get the right answer from someone, the only cloud I can see on the horizon is that the trade guys who enter into this agreement may get bogged down with questions and spend more time doing that than working

Fair point Bif. I would like to think that rib-netters wouldn't take advantage.

Agree - I think it has to be something out of your usual sphere - like holding a won ebay item or whatever. I get loads of requests for info, but genuinely don't mind helping pointing people in the right direction, where I can.
