The classifieds will no longer have replies. If you want to contact someone about a listing use the PM button on the post.

What a shame........ :whip: Not blaming anyone in particular. Perhaps cabin fever and shoveling too much snow caused tempers to flare.


I learned a lot just from reading the listings and the questions.


Oh well. :flush:

I agree. the guilty parties should have been repremanded as such the past violators were regarding opinions of negative nature and content for the intended topic.... sometimes a person chiming in about something can shed a different lite on something and aid the sale as well as inform the rest.... ;)

This is above my pay grade, but would it be possible for the classified listing to be edited the way normal posts can?

A classified add is the classic Buyer Beware. It's not in the spirit of our open & free group to knock someone's add or offering. Makes for good drama but is not what I want in a group in which most of us believe in free enterprises. I like the change.

Yeah, the only thing I can think of, is you Lock the original post, then copy & paste all the text and pics to a new post. A little more trouble, but you will always have a clean, generic ad.

As with all posts there is 24 hour time limit to edit it. This is a forum wide limit, I have no way to set it different just for the classifieds but I'll look into it.

The bump button is down in the lower left of any topic you created under the subscribe/unsubscribe link. It only appears when the six hour bump limit* has elapsed and no one has replied to it. When you click this it will send it to the top of the forum without replying to it.

*The six hours is standard limit for regular topics, please wait at least 2 weeks before bumping classified ad.

Thanks, Mr. Mayor.

I never noticed the 24-hour limit before - maybe you really do learn something new every day...
