Suggestion
Planes For Sale By Distance To You (Cool!)

I was thinking/hoping that there could be a way to search for planes that are for sale by having the option to search for planes that are for sale by allowing users to search by distance from you.

In other words, instead of clicking on and opening each For Sale thread, I could make a couple clicks and now view all the planes for sale starting at the shortest distance and then going farther away.

Could that be an option RCG could implement?

Thanks,

Frank

Still hoping.

There is definitely a want for this by RCG members. If you subtract the two erroneous no votes, there hasn't been many lopsided polls on RCG like this one.

I really think it's a great idea. RCG is already a leader in RC forums, this would put it in the "unreachable' category for the others.

It's a cool idea, but implementing it won't be easy, mostly because of the performance reasons. And what's more important, right now it's a material for the long-term TODO list. Let's revisit this after we complete the forum software upgrade.

Thanks for the update Mike. For those of us not in-the-know, when will the software update happen?

Thanks,

Frank

After an year, this feature is now available in the FS/W section. There is now an additional "distance" column, you can click on its header to sort the thread list by distance from you (if you have set your location).

Mike,

Would it be possible to tie in the classifiied page sidebar link of "See all the latest ad pics" to the distance near you? The sidebar link is a great feature, but having the pics come up in order of closest to you would be even better.

Would this be a challenge you guys would like to take on?

Thanks,

Frank
