New Format

I checked out the 'Classifieds' this morning, and the new format was in full view..
The first thing that caught my eye was the ease of trader ratings now, with the deal thread already in place and a single click under the avatar gets you right there. Good move....
I still didn't see a price in the blatant ad, and you have to click it to review the post

I'd like to see a requirement to post prices in the header,or a "sticky" showing how ads should be written..

See, there's things that I do and don't like. The trader ratings upgrade is really great. However, I liked being able to tell immediately whether something was For Sale or Wanted immediately upon viewing the list of ads since it was on the left hand side. With it on the right with the other info of the ad, it looks somewhat cluttered and is slightly harder to discern what is a for sale or what is a want ad upon first scrolling down; for me at least. I'll just have to give it a few days to get used to it.

ABSOLUTELY!

I have to say that was one of the most , if not the most, annoying features of the old format.

Interesting format screen for "Posting an ad"

Has lots of shipping options that will cause confusion for a bit

....but I like how the individual ad takes that critical info and flags it at the top of the ad.

Is there an option for LPU? If so, that will probably solve any and all issues for selling.

I went to list something but didn't see any difference in the process. I do like the trader rating line, but you know someone is still going to ask! Ha!

OMG thats hilarious.

After all this Hoopla and all the shipping options in the pull downscreen there is no "LPU only" choice. Just a "No Shipping" choice

Oil wells...

I like the new features but the "distance from you" is not correct at all. My location is saved correctly for Lagrange Ohio, but Michigan is over 5000 miles away from me and California is 7000 miles. Something not quite right.

WHAT? No LPU? NO NO NO NO NO. Ugh

I can't seem to find any pull down screens, just the one for "for sale", "wanted" etc.

And ya, that distance from you feature always has some screwy numbers in it.

Yupp...figured it out, I'm in classic mode and that doesn't show. Changed over and saw it. Then changed back real quick. What can I say, I like classic.

The price thing is odd to me, you're pretty much required to put that in otherwise a price won't show anywhere and it will be listed for free? But then the price doesn't show in the header? I'll have to throw an ad up and see.

Stick with the new style,, you'll get used to is fast


I like the changes,, well done RCG staff
My only fear is have the trader feedback link so easy to access, trolls will screw with your ratings and the moderators will have more work removing it
