Thumbs up How about a couple more Prefixes in the Marketplace?

Just basic/general descriptions, such as "Engine", "Transmission", "Transfer Case" (or just group all those as "Driveline" for simplicity), "Body", "Interior", etc. Too many things don't fit into any other catagory and are getting classified as "Misc Jeep Parts".

Maybe combine "Complete Axles" and "Axle Parts" into just "Axle" to simplify things? The thread title itself will distinguish whether the items are complete axles or parts. This would also enable us to see everything related to axles by searching for only one Prefix.

I think a little more development here would result in more usage of the Prefix features. A "SOLD" prefix would be pretty sweet, too. It would aid the Mods in cleaning the Marketplace, standardize thread titles more, and eliminate all the random, custom "SOLD" edits people make that doesn't get caught in searches.

Hey Clarkston Cracker, I have an idea.....

How about a couple more Prefixes in the Marketplace?

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Just basic/general descriptions, such as "Engine", "Transmission", "Transfer Case" (or just group all those as "Driveline" for simplicity), "Body", "Interior", etc. Too many things don't fit into any other catagory and are getting classified as "Misc Jeep Parts".

Maybe combine "Complete Axles" and "Axle Parts" into just "Axle" to simplify things? The thread title itself will distinguish whether the items are complete axles or parts. This would also enable us to see everything related to axles by searching for only one Prefix.

What do ya think?

I did. Would you like me to send you some links?

Here's what I found after skimming about 15 pages in the Completed Sales Forum. What I'm suggesting would help to stop this from happening. I know as well as you that the search process is very tedious when you look at each one, but this is what happens when you batch move threads that have been edited.

If you focused all that energy on selling vacuum cleaners you could be a very wealthy man.

i think the whole completed sales forum is a joke!

-when i post a price it ends up dropping (get talked down)
and its added to the forum as sold as the asking price (not an accurate representation of value)<----point of completed sales forum

-we cannot see the lowest price because we cannot offer in threads

just dump completed sales and delete sold threads



and make it a punishment of any one screwing up the sold title, they have to sit threw a magic vac showing

That's your problem. The prices in my threads are what the parts sold at. I don't do the inflated price/negotiation bullshit.

No one should have to sit and watch you put the vac on the end of your dick, that's just wrong.

Only took these guys about a week after I suggested it to figure out that Prefixes were beneficial. Previously, they used to use a completely separate Classified software and were about to re-implement it after the site upgrade. They prefer to structure their sub-forums by vehicle generation, but the concept still applies.

Sweet, looks like they're really doing an awesome job with their classifieds. Did you send them a pavementpounder trophy or something?
