Members can make a thread for their metro area for example NYC, and people local to the area can post their stuff there - for those who rather not deal with shipping and being ripped off that way.

Yeah there's Craigslist but this would be a good way to get local [H]'s together and do tech deals with H'ers rather than strangers (well.. you know what I mean).

What's wrong with people just putting their area in the title like they do now? Why split the traffic?

Didn't realize people do that (don't really frequent FS/FT in general, just have some things all of a sudden I was thinking of selling and this idea came up).
Still, I think it'd be more organized into one thread per area instead of a diasparate of threads, would make people more likely to subscribe or check in to one particular "area" thread than constantly be on the lookout or randomly bump into a trader who happens to be in their area as is the situation
