    And yes, if you're selling more than one item, might as well sell it separately (think eBay).

    I suggest the following:
    Classifieds (Forum): Will only have stickied rules w/o permission to post.
    ----LCDs and parts (Subforum): Normal threads regarding the topic.
    ----Power supplys (Subforum; inverters, opus, etc...): Normal threads regarding the topic.
    ----Computer hardware (Subforum; mobo, cpu, ram etc...): Normal threads regarding the topic.
    ----Accesories (Subforum; GPS, input devices etc...): Normal threads regarding the topic.
    ----Car stereo equipment (Subforum): Normal threads regarding the topic.
    ----Misc stuff (Subforum; cars, services, rims, etc.): Normal threads regarding the topic.

    All of the WTB requests should go their appropriate subforums.

    Oh yeah, and the search button, even if used as advanced search, is still rather useless. Too much junk from the past comes to the top.
    It would make everyone's life A LOT easier.

    Wouldn't that dilute the value of subdividing the forum? One the one hand, you'd have stuff nicely and neatly organized. On the other, on sub-forum would have everything in it. If you were looking for LCD's, you wouldn't just be able to be sure that looking in the LCD sub-forum will net you all of the LCD's.

    Also, if you have multiple items for sale, you'll see multiple threads with titles like this:


    "Bugbyte's Lilliput 7" screen sale!"
    "Bugbyte's M1-ATX sale!"
    "Bugbyte's BU-303 GPS receiver sale!"
    "Bugbyte's Random Gotta Get Rid of this Computer Hardware Sale!"


    I'd post them up like that so I got maximum exposure on the new posts page.

    i'm gonna suport the origional sugguetion, i don't like these giant forsale threads because you have to read the whole thread to thing to see if what you're shoping for is there. And on top of that, because those threads have so many items and therfore many ppl inquiring about them they stay bumped to the top and single item threads get shuffled down the list.
    I'mmmmmm a n00b.... feel free to make fun

    One thing I've noticed a few people doing is to create an empty message immediately following their for-sale post as a placeholder to contain information on the status of the sale. They then go back and edit this message with apropriate status information.

    -g.
