I would like to hear suggestions for changes to the classified section. If you have an issue with the classified system that you would like addressed, but don't have a good idea on how to fix it, feel free to post it and we will take a look at it or maybe another user can suggest a fix for it.
Here is the list of suggestions so far (as of 3/30/2011)
Seller must have minimum number of posts or have buyer feedback to sell an item
Add state abbreviation of seller's location to the subject line
Require pictures in the ad listing
Have the pm button in the classifieds automatically put the thread link in the pm
Mandatory sold item notification for the ad - When the item is marked as sold, it could also automatically lock the ad.
Require actual ownership of the item that is being sold.
Ability to sort by ads you have posted or ads that you have replied to
Add warbird section
Add the ability to sort by ads with pictures attached.
Have a post preview that shows pictures, price/trade, location, shipping
Delete old posts or move them to an archive. Archive would be read-only.
Feedback - Link directly to the feedback section from the post
Add a "Local Pickup Only" thread prefix
Require price in subject line
Add warning about using the paypal gift option
Local Pick-up forum
Search by zipcode
Add a "Plans For Sale" thread prefix
Break up classified forums into more specific categories.

We have changed the amount of points that are needed to get a permanent ban from RCGroups.com from 40 to 20. Expired points do not count towards this total, so we only look at the currently active point total. We felt that a large gap from the 15 point level to the 40 point level was giving too much leeway for troublemakers and that it was difficult for a user to reach 20 points unless they were intentionally trying to get banned, so this change should not affect most users.
If you have any comments or concerns about this change, feel free to post them in the Site Suggestions / Complaints forum and we can discuss them further.
