There have often been calls on the PowerSeller Community Forum to split the board into different topics. The most common request on the UK PowerSeller Board has been for “Business” and “Chat” sections.
Now on the US PowerSeller Board it may become a reality with three different “sub-boards” being considered.
PowerSeller HelpDesk (Get help from with policy questions, new eBay products, and technical issues from other PowerSellers)
PowerSolutions – (Learn about selling formats, business tools, and best practices from other PowerSellers)
Whether this will become implemented is really down to the US PowerSellers themselves. PowerSellers can vote for “This board works for me as is”, “I would prefer additional boards for PowerSellers” or “I don’t care either way”.
eBay have often spun off new boards when exisiting boards reach a certain level of useage, it enables board contributors to find threads they’re interested in, and to post new threads on boards where they’re most likely to get the information or assistance they need. The US PowerSeller board is significantly busier than the UK PowerSeller board, but the move is still likely to renew calls for the UK board to be split.
