Classifieds sections??

Would be nice is there were subsections to the classifieds. Even if they were basic.

At least
- bikes for sale
- bike parts for sale
- other for sale

at minimum this would be nice. especially from someone weeding through cars and other junk in the classifieds trying to find what they're looking for.

yes! There also needs to be either a generic 'SOLD' section of a sold section under each category. One big sold location would probably be best. Once or twice a year, an admin could post a thread asking everyone to look through the classifieds and bump each of their items as sold or still available.

marking an item as sold is the responsibility of the seller imho.

SO if anything allow users to edit the title of their threads, so they can prefix items w/ SOLD once they're gone... or allow them to change specifics in their subject.

Agreed, but people usually need a little encouragement (or sometimes a good shove) to complete this. If you don't regularly post classified items, details of marking it sold can be missed. It would be nice to have the ability to edit titles but then you would have to extend the editing time from 30 minutes to several weeks or even infinitely. Two other forums I'm on let you edit the title and body forever.

And we need an Adult section like Craigslist, hard for escorts to know where to post their offerings here!

Why do you have to stir up RC90?!

It's better to have loved and lost than live with the psycho for life!

There will need to be the following categories...

Men seeking women
Men seeking men
Men seeking shemale
Women seeking men
Women seeking women
Women seeking shemale
shemale seeking men
shemale seeking women
shemale seeking shemale

That gives plenty of options

The best is the noodle stuff in tomato. That helps the hamburger get over the hump.

It might help if the seller would simply READ the For Sale Guidelines.

When a item has been sold please contact a admin/mod. by PM. The thread will then be marked **SOLD** to eliminate confusion.
