It seems to me like it's a little redundant to have UG selling things from two different places. Since the UG store already allows us to sign in and use our regular UG info, why don't we just move the Gear Ads portion of the Classifieds section into UG store?
My Old Progressive Metal Band:
For fans of Between The Buried and Me, Dream Theater, Cynic.

My New Progressive Rock/Djent Band:
Wings Denied
For fans of Deftones, Tesseract, Periphery, Karnivool, Cynic.
Unfortunately it's not possible due to the fact that UG Store is a different thing, operating under different conditions (CC payment, shipping, customer service, warranty and all that).
It just will not be possible to merge UG Store and Gear classifieds from community members.

However, if have other ideas on how to make the Classifieds sub-forum better, please let us know so.
