Am I the only one who checks the Marketplace first when I come to this forum?

What is wrong with me?

Most likely your UAS is very active at the minute. I only check the marketplace when i have money to spend on ukes.

I just hit the "new posts" button. But secretly I'm always hoping to see the words "FS: Kamaka pineapple soprano" :)

I always hit the "What's New" link & if there are any new sale items listedd - that is where I go. I also rabidly hit eBay's uke section & sort by "ending soon" and/or "Newly listed". Yes, doctor, I am an addict!

And I just bought a uke off of the Atlanta Craigslist!

I use to check the marketplace first, but I found it made me twitch toward my wallet too much. I try to avoid it as much as possible since there's nothing I need, but will easily find something I want if I only look.

That's a great collection you have!

I always click the "Whats New" link (that is where my browser goes when I click UU), so if its new and I am in the market I go there. Otherwise no.

I've been trying to avoid it (not very effectively though!), since I need another uke like I need a soundhole in my head!

Yea it is the first go-to place as of late. I've been absent from UU due to work. But I'm in the market for a new uke or an upgrade. Trying to start teaching my friends so I gotta take care of my students :)

I rarely go to the marketplace, eBay yes, but not the marketplace, mostly because it usually way out of my price range I usually look for new posts in Uke Talk, Uke Beginners and the Introduction forums and post there, occasionally I wander to Contests and Videos, but generally I'm in Uke Talk..

Same here. I want a solid wood uke, but I'm a noob, it's not like I need one!

I always go to 'Uke Talk' first, just because it generally has a wide range of current and interesting topics up for discussion...and that's where all the people are usually :)

Thank goodness I'm not alone! :cool: I though I was the only one that checked Ebay every hour on the hour.
