Idea
Thread Suggestion: Sub Forum in Australian Region Forum for The For Sale Area

Hi all, as you know I am the moderator of the for sale and wanted threads of the Aussie regional forum, we would like to create a sub FORUM WITHIN THE AUSSIE SECTION where each for sale or wanted ad has its own thread in the sub forum, this way questions can be asked for that item, it makes it so much easier and it works a treat on other web forums.

I can still close/delete threads that have been sold or found so the area will stay clean, just easier for everyone to see what is for sale instead of scrolling thru 40 pages to find something.

look forward to a reply.

Cheers

Jas

I too would really like to see this Sub-Forum in the Aussie Regional Forum for the For Sale/Wanted items.

This forum is constantly growing at the moment and if people start asking questions in this one thread and talking about a product, then the thread get so cluttered with other random stuff the for sale or wanted items gets drowned out.

Jaskel is doing his best to try keep it clean but this also is creating A LOT of tension as many others want to ask questions and or talk about a product for sale.

It's a catch 22 at the moment, damned if you do and damned if you don't.

Having this sub-forum will not only solve some of our problems but will also make finding, buying and selling sooooo much easier and cleaner.


Anywho's that's my 0.02c

That's the idea of each post having it own thread.. There's no need to delete or moderate peoples threads... Once there finshed with they will just fade away down the list..

That's what causing the issues with the current system that people are having there post deleted or moderated..

Dosen't go on at arc heli or need to

With Archeli you just mark the item as sold and it drops into it's own sub forum..

So the main for sale listing stay un clutered..EASY

From what I understand I think this is the sort of For Sale Wanted thread Jaskel and others were thinking of. Have a good look how it is done.

Yo Jas ..... As per the sticky "START HERE - How to propose a new forum"

Jim B says "Please note that this process is not applicable to forums to be placed in the Clubs, Regions, or Vendors area. We generally approve such requests without any voting.

Such forums are requested by simply posting the request in Site Suggestions / Complaints."

Might pay to either try get this thread moved over to Site Suggestions / Complaints or start a new one there.

Yes Sub-Forum so that each sale/wanted item gets it's own thread. Just like the main classifieds sections.
