We need a place to easily post REBOL "want ads". For example, many people write to me looking for "xyz" scripts or tools. Also, people are looking for developers, or consultants are looking for jobs, etc. And, a lot of the time, I want to post a query about something.

So, I'm not sure what the script for such a think would include, but I bet one of the existing scripts for this blog, rambo, wiki, etc, could make it pretty easy to get running.

Any suggestions on a rapid solution to this?

Consider this blog to be "Want Ad #0." Recursive of course. I want a want ad.

Not that I am up to the task of doing it, but if this blog engine where updated with a simplified registering mechanism, then it would allow anyone to post their own topics, and hey, that would become an open (and uber simple) forum engine...

maybe have a few separate links for different topics (wanted, offers, billboards, etc).

a few safeguards to prevent hostile use of the site by bots and allow someone to become moderator for RT on such a site and its bound to get some attention? since the link would be refered.

With REBOL running the site on top of it, people will see that REBOL can actually be used for such tasks.

Drink our own wine anyone?
