Actually, going to a dedicated Classifieds system solved a lot of problems we had with the old system that our members asked us to fix. One of the problems was people with too much time on their hands that would go through and make unnecessary comments on the ads that the ad originator would then have to ask me to delete and then I'd have to waste time deleting something like "Your price is way too high."
I never know if iten is sold already or not.
Huh??? The old system was really part of a discussion board that did not allow the person who placed the ad to delete the ad. Therefore, they would have to email me to have the ad removed, which they very seldom did. Therefore, there were a lot of items on there that were already sold. The new system allows the user to delete their ad when the item sells, solving the problem that members complained about.
