Give me advice on how to make things better

Craigslist and eBay ads

Postby KiltieTuba » Wed Aug 16, 2017 10:53 am

There are about a dozen ads in separate threads started today or yesterday with no ownership by members of the board. Can we agree to combine these types of topics into one thread? It doesn't make sense to have one thread for each instrument - especially when members posting don't own the instrument. It would reduce the clutter.

Normally not an issue, but I agree that today was a little overboard. at the same time, these people are trying to provide a service, and it can be very helpful, so I appreciate them. I think I running thread called "craigslist postings" that anybody can add to is a good idea.

Anybody else have any other ideas?

Keep it as is. One overboard day is not a big deal, and it's already in the off site sales section.

What I'm recommending is that all those ads you happen to find in a single sitting should be put into on thread not multiple, just title it as what it is "CL Tuba Finds" or something like that. If I'm interested, I can click each link individually within the single thread.

There is an entire forum for that, Ian. It was created just for ALL CL and eBay listings, as separate things. Why on earth would you look in a catch-all thread for anything? Each ad should have its own, separate thread. If you don't like looking at all those ad listings then why are you looking at ad listings? WTH?

I like it as it is. All of the posts are in the correct section of For Sale and it's nice to be able to see them individually.

Keep it as it is +1. It doesn't bother anyone that way - if you see it's in that forum and you don't want to see the threads, don't open it. Problem solved. I appreciate someone taking the time to search Craigs List for horns and putting them where we all can see.
