Would it be helpful to have a section to post regarding the store that you work for/with? A place where we can ask questions like, "do you have [insert product here] in stock?:
I know we can call in or check the web site, but I found it very beneficial on the pdga site when people like Mike from Sun King or Dave from Gateway would chime in and say: we have that in stock or we are getting that on...
I really didn't consider it adverstising too much as it occured in threads that were already discussing the said product.
