Are the classified now our main focus?

    By having the classifieds at the top of the forum listing it gives the impression that this is our main focus. I introduced a friend to the site and his first comment was "So this is a forum to buy and sell?" It seems to me that the classifieds should go back to the bottom like they were previously unless this is the image we want to convey.


    Just my $.02

    I agree completely with Catt57. It does seem that that is now our main focus. Is it?

    OSA was a community of folks who liked to talk, first and foremost, about firearms and the activities associated with them. It gave us a place to banter back and forth, but to cuss and discuss as a like-minded group of folks. Now it looks to me like it's mostly about the classifieds.

    Overall I do like the changes recently made to the site, it seems a bit easier to use, and posting pics is much easier now, (and we all love pics!) But I do think moving the classifieds back down to the bottom would be a good idea, it might cause newcomers to at least scroll through and see the topics, maybe bringing new blood online rather then just more noob classified ad posters.

    The new classifieds suck. Relisting it, which you have to do because bumping no longer works, deletes your pics and resets the view counter to zero. So the great new easier way of posting pics just got thrown out the window. We are still stuck with that photobucket PITA I guess.

    It shouldn't remove pics from the first post.

    I also do not like how "relisting" removes any responses.

    I prefer the form format, and also like that those who use it, when they mark the ad as "sold" it puts a big banner across the info.

    That's up to the site owner. I imagine he'll chime in soon enough.

    I happen to agree with you, and drove that request before the buyout.

    Move them back to the bottom AND rejuvenate the 'bump' capability.

    Ok, I got the message, the classifieds suck, you can stop posting it everywhere.

    I'll put the classifieds back at the bottom and try it out for a while, is that cool with everyone?
