I dont think the mods quite understand that people dont like the new system.


Mods?.... Doesn't have much to do with Moderators, Tom,... It's Admin who are working on the classifieds section.

I Personally don't see the problem with it at all, used it quite a bit, it sets things out clearly, stops people spamming up threads, categorises items easily, tells you how far from the item you are

Job lots aren't difficult to advertise either, Jordie had a job lot up the other day, everything itemised with seperate prices, pictured clearly.

can't keep track of what's for sale


Use the 'My Watch list', just like on Ebay to tag ads you want to keep an eye on.

you cant keep track of whats being put up for sale as and when it is


again, the watch list means you can tag ads to keep an eye on them,... there's even a search function that works to help you find what you want.

Also with the old system as i think i posted up earlyer anything posted up in the forsale would show up when i refreshed the new posts thingy and you could see when something new is up.


The calender on the left of the page enables users to bring up all the items that had been put up on that particular day, so you know what's new and old from the dates and items can grouped as such....

haven't listed anything either as its just does my head in


:P not a very useful comment/reason unless you can elaborate more on what needs improving :)

I just don't see the problem, and it has nothing to do with me being a team member, If i thought it was crap, i'd say what i thought.

The section could do with a 'PM seller' tab rather than sending an e- mail. but there's nothing stopping users clicking the username of the seller (bottom of page in the 'advert by' box) which links to the sellers forum profile, you then Pm them like you normally would,... it's only two clicks.

I much prefer the new system. Theres no for sale threads being bumped every 5 minutes, and you just pick a section for what your looking for, and go through the pages. Its much better, and its great that it shows price and distance too.

With the old system, nobody every bothered going past the first couple of pages to look for stuff, and with the amount of listing we have, your for sale threads would just fall away to page 10 in a couple of days. Since the new system limits the amount on each page, your more likely to scroll through the pages to find what your after.

Another good feature is that fact its easy and clear when an item has sold. Not many people used to bother editing there item description when it had sold on the old one, so i was forever emailing people asking 'did you ever sell those brakes you had for sale a month ago?'


Its easy to put a listing up too...

If you click on an advert, go to the part of the advert that is titled 'Advert By', the 'Contact Seller' link will set up a new PM to that member, not an email. One thing I'm working on is automatically adding a subject line to the PM.
