For sale section

Recommended Posts

Good work for bringing the classifieds into the forum. Should help keep things a bit more current and hopefully drive some more participation in the forum generally.


I think that there are far too many subcategories though. Having to click through 3 levels of forum just to look at the class you're interested in seems to be a bit much. It also makes it much more difficult to casually browse through whats around. You could probably just cut it off after the first page?

Thats the idea :)


As for sub categories the reason for this is to allow people to subscribe to the ones they are interested in so if say looking for iom could subscribe to iom forum to automatically receive emails informing them of new ads. However note taken of your comments for future review. May be remove the international/mya/affiliated level ?

Garry,

You probably worked very hard at this but to me it is fundamentally unintelligible and the same no doubt to countless others



I want to amend my advert but I cannot.


I followed the instructions but no button or anything


You get a totally different view if you at not logged on - sorry - Dave @ Confused dot Com


Why can we not simply amend our posting...


Dave..

Sorry David now your confusing me. Which Ad do you wish to amend as I can't find one you have posted to Ads section.


Only the original poster and admin can amend a Ad in Ads section. With exception of Mikes new Ad all the rest were copied of old for sales by Damian Ackroyd and as such can't be edited by original poster (nor could they be on old for sales) but only Damian and Admin.


If one of these is yours the simplest solution is for you to post a new Ad and then let me know which of the ones posted by Damian is yours and I will then remove it. You should then be able to amend the new Ad to your hearts content.


As more and more new Ads are added this problem will disappear


As for looking different when not logged in can you be a bit more specific ?


PS found your Ad now and I'm correct it is one posted by Damian so please just post a shortened version as new topic and i will copy over rest and delete old one then you will be able to edit. Or if its sold just let me know and i will mark as such.

To all please keep the comments coming.


This forum is still a work in progress as far as I'm concerned and all suggestions will be considered.

Following this and other comments I have flattened the for sale section layout.


See I do listen to and consider ideas to improve the forum.


So please if you think something could be better let me know and if practical/possible it will be considered to be done.

Hi Garry,

Regarding adverts still posted, but are presumably no longer for sale, would it be an idea for those who make an enquiry about a boat for sale, to be able to mark the advert in some way, if they don't receive a reply from the owner. This has happened to me on more than one advert, and those boats are still being advertised.Unfortunately for you, you have no way of knowing if those boats are still for sale or not. Therefore unable to delete any until notified.

Well if anyone contacts a seller and is told the item is sold/no longer available they have 3 options.

1) ask the seller to update Ad to say its sold.

2) post a message here or on the relevant d=for sale section.

3) click on the ! on the post and report it.


As i already have said very few adverts get removed after 6 months because item is not sold so while it could be better its not that big a problem and compared to old for sale system where ads could be there for 18 months or more its far better.
