Default Classifieds Section

Do you guys like the bumps, ttt, etc. in the classifieds section? I find it very hard to browse with new ads going off the first page in hours. Other forums limit posts to price reduction or additional info and it really helps with the flow. Does anyone else think it is tough to follow currently?

You really have to stay on top of the classifieds
I think you should be able to delete a thread when your item is sold instead of posting "sold" and bringing it back to the top
The old and sold posts clutter it up a lot

Yes, I like them to a degree. There should be a time limit. Able to bump for, say a week, then no more. 11+ pages of bumps borders on the ridiculous.

No problems with bumps and TTTs unless.....unless you did 20 threads for your items instead of one big thread and bump them all at the same time for stuff that Sanford and son would turn their nose up at..


For the most part its great and well run.

I don't mind a few bumps, TTT, etc. if you're trying to sell something and it's off the first page in 30 minutes it's gonna be hard to ever sell it. Most people look at the first page and a few will look at the 2nd page. Beyond that it's pretty much history. Subcategories would be nice. Even just a few like:
Guns/Bows
Vehicles
Hunting equipment
Misc items


It's only annoying, and a bit unfair when someone is bumping the same overpriced item several times a day, and other things get buried because of it.

As long as people aren’t bumping their post 3 times a day every day I could care less. I think a 24 or even 48 hour limit between bumps would be nice, but not necessary.

An occasional bump, isn't bad, but after about 1,000 you should probably consider Craigslist.

I like it. I can’t be on 24/7 so being able to bump up the post helps me see more threads. I’m not going to scroll through 10 pages of classifieds to find something that was posted this week. Maybe limit it to one or two bumps a day. Annoying when people bump their post every hour.

I try not to bump mine too much but I don't normally sell a bunch of stuff here. I do have 2 threads going now which is a unusual deal for me. I try to bump them once or twice a day depending on how quick they fall off the first page. Now if people don't want me to bump them I will gladly quit doing it.......just as soon as the dachshund pups and show rabbits sell.......lol.

You guys must be bored?? I don't mind bumps. Bump it til you sell it for all I care. If I miss something on the classifieds, oh well. Nothing here we NEED right?? If I am in the market for something special, I use the search function. I do think folks need to close, lock or say SOLD on items just out of courtesy. They will be off the front page quickly anyway with all the bumps right??

I'd like the ability to sort threads by start date. Then I'd be able to see the new posts for the day, and not just all the old posts that were bumped.

Other forums I've been on allow bumping once per week and that seemed to work pretty well.

Sub categories is a grand idea but theres some who cant get that right already.

We have a lot of members so you're gonna have to deal with some level of it.

First off, it’s free so stop crying about the minor details.
Second....the classifieds on this site is Tire Kicker Central. You have to be almost giving something away here before anyone buys it.....and even then it’s a maybe. Combine that with the fact that almost every firearm listed (used) is priced higher than it can be found new online. It’s a joke.
