Im noticing the odd "For Sale" and "Wanted" adds creeping in this section on the forum

Not sure IF everyone is aware but we have a "Classifieds " Section on the forum

Can we please use the appropriate sections for the relevant subjects

the new classifieds section is crap to use imo. well its good BUT MQ for sale items are few and far between and there is 12 different sections that adds could be hiding in, plus they are chocka-block with GU/GQ stuff. hence why i posted my wreck in this section the other week, its makes more sense.

asking a mod for a sub-forum under this MQ section for MQ parts is the way to go i reckon.

ps- what do you mean by op seehuusen, i thought op was 'original poster', ie the thread starter.

OP is also an IRC term. (Internet Relay Chat) 'op' is short for 'operator', basically the same as a moderator on a forum. Someone who has authority to control the actions of others.

I agree with neRok. I also have the same issue when hunting for MQ/K parts and worry that the odd for sale thread gets lost amongst the rest and hard to find. It may be easier if classifieds were listed specific to each forum category.

Not sure if im getting my head around what so hard to put a "wanted" add in the "wanted" section

Or even looking in the "For Sale" section to see whats for sale ???

Yes i know the early stuff is few and far between,just have to look harder

Im just kinda over new threads of interest , then find out its a "For Sale" or "Wanted " add in disguise

SPOT ON NICK :D
I guess that has stuck around since I had mIRC on a floppy disk, trying to download illicit material off the good old Chat Channels HAHAHA those were the days :cool:
Now you've got the same capacity as 200 of those old computers :rolleyes:

hence why my add is here. the new classifieds are sh*t. i put my add in only to have to check when it ran out, and hardly any views. put it in the mk mq sections, over a hundred views in a few days. imho it will sell quicker here then in the "classifieds" section

well the forum mods have made no comments (or actions) regarding my suggestions in the forum news section, so im proposing we have a thread titled 'MQ/MK Classifieds' and who ever has something for sale just post into that thread. no chit-chat in the thread, just items (chit-chat via pm etc). so if you want to browse the latest for sale, just read the last page.

what you reckon?
