Classifieds revamp please

Do we really need 25 categories? I didn't count, but its a pain to find new posts. some of the categories have not had a post in months. Please make the "for sale" one category.

Re: Classifieds revamp please

It would also be good to include the listings in the "new posts, no politics/off-topic" and "new posts, no politics" results. I think that would increase visibility tremendously. I consider the sale of sailing gear to be on topic, and the odds that it will include political statements are fairly low.

Re: Classifieds revamp please

If you are referring to the Classifieds section under the "Quick Menu" list, I believe that is separate from the forum.

It's kind of a loophole for selling stuff. We asked the admins to add some controls to that section and weren't able to. We can't enforce forum rules (1 year and 50 messages) over there. I did ask that we get rid of it and bring the classifieds into the forum itself but that didn't get off the ground.

Not sure how much it can be changed other than adding or deleting sections.

Re: Classifieds revamp please

It would be great to bring it in. I have always been surprised that we don't have a more active classifieds section.

I didn't know we had one until I said in a post that we didn't. Then I remembered that I had seen it once, and ignored it as overly confusing, and full of commercials.

Hi early green.

Forum rules are that you have to be a member for a year and have 50 posts in order to place a classified ad. That's the reason why you didn't see an option to post.

Re: Classifieds revamp please

I've been here since 2009 and have 354 posts. I still can't find the post button! I just sawed up a parts boat and have some junk to unload.

Edit: I have very high quality boat parts to "rehome"

Keep the expenses low and the good times high.
