This that may be a helluva an onerous overhead for admin' to sort out. It is pretty infuriating when the OP can't be arsed to update their own listing though, that's for sure. Wastes everybody's timeDoes that include items that are sold but the op couldn’t be bothered to mark as sold?
I've seen listing not marked as sold but 'NOW SOLD....... you were toooo late ' added to the listing... what a......
It’s also useful to see what similar items have gone for to check the price being asked is roughly appropriate.... i lock threads once I’ve sold an item, I feel that it protects me and the buyer insomuch as it locks the thread showing how it was described etc, but it doesn’t allow for additional comments to if (heaven forbid) there are issues, it can only be sorted out privately by pm (as it should be).I wondered that too. It might be handy to have a record though, in case of any issues further down the line? Probably a better idea just to remove it though, right enough
I have certainly found the “sold” classification useful for this reason.Assuming the adverts are marked as sold is it not a useful resource if the sold ads still exist for reference as to the “going rate”? Ultimately everything is only worth what someone will pay for it but good to see what similar items have sold for?
Just a thought, is it possible to have the 'sold' listings either removed or placed into a different sub-forum?
I'm not a Serial Seller. If they're not Trade then to me these are the SS of the brotherland.why not just remove it once its sold ?
Yep. It's pretty irritating. Especially, as you say, when the OP is on the post like lightning when they think they've a chance of a saleI Just wish when guys sell stuff they :
1 / say its gone ( SOLD ) as fast as they posted the add .
2/ just delete the add when sold ?. ( a far better way )
I'am sure this will remove hundreds of old posts and adds from the bank . There is nothing as bad as seeing a golden nugget , only to read all the way down to see its been sold ! or vie a pm to find it was sold yonks ago..
Have a nice weekend chaps.
