Default forsale threads

if you have more then one item for sale post them in the same thread....

pavementpounder has like 20 different items for sale at this time... maybe more didnt count them all. shouldnt he have listen jeep parts for sale like others do instead of taking a whole page up in the forum? maybe his own little section??

so many threads cause the title can only be so long, if i am looking for something ford that he sells, i'm not gonna click a sale thread title as a jeep part.

Like the local Bargain Corner in the Paper, gotta read every line for all the other itmes cause you can only have one item per title.

and this is coming from someone that has great iTrader feedback ... typically, if you're looking for a specific item you can use the search function and shouldn't matter how many items/threads someone has for sale.

edit: x2 on what Cheapthrills is saying too.

I say the opposite. I hate 20 items in one post. It usually has some generic title such as "Stuff for sale" which I'm not interested in opening up

Many of PP's items were listed over a wide range of time. Consolidating them in one post won't generate good results, IMO, as the specific item(s) is not listed in the title.

Go on about your evening, . It's all good.

you put 20 items in one post, after a few days your gonna have 50 replies on 20 items in one thread, and your gonna have to sit and read through every post to keep track of 1 item your interested in. Reading 50 posts, or dealing with 20 thread topics?

Have to agree on keeping them separate. When I am going thru the new threads in the evening, I usually have 12 to 16 pages to read. I scan the titles to see what they are about and open only if they seem like I want to read them. For sale items I always read this way. If it says Ford crap for sale, I don't bother opening it as i don't have anything Ford. Makes it easier on those of us who have limited time on line.

1. You're an idiot.

2. iTrader only allows 1 Buyer and 1 Seller to submit feedback on any given thread. Sellers with big-ass part-out threads or multiple unrelated items in the same thread get screwed on feedback by this.

3. Learn to use the Advanced Search function.
