Can we move the ads in Firearms from page 20-77 to Old Ads?

Discussion in 'Site News & Feedback' started by CutBaitNBlowSh*tUp4ALivin, Jan 24, 2021.

Should ads be automatically removed from Firearms after a certain date?

    In all seriousness, when the classifieds went to the new style of relisting, things are automatically marked as gone after a while IF they were originally posted after the classifieds revamp. 500+ ads are still up that are exempt from this. I have at least a dozen old ads still in Firearms. I can lock them and edit them, but anything before a certain date cannot be deleted without a mod, and cannot be manually moved to Old Ads.
    You'll notice there are 58k threads in Old Ads, and 788 in Firearms. A vast majority of the Firearms ads are from before a certain date, many now dating to over 5 years ago.
    Ads from 2019 and older begin on page 20, out of 79+ pages of "currently for sale" Firearms.
    I've noticed it's stayed between 75-80 pages for at least a year because all current posts are automatically moved after a while.

    All of the teasing and "Still available? Text me" posts would nearly stop if (at current check) pages 20-77 would be moved to Old Ads. But that would take some time and a bored mod.
    My oldest example, one that I sold in 2016, is still in Firearms, because I can't move it myself. I locked it and edited it, but it's still there.

    I know I'm one of the worst, and Jeff is another, and between just us at least two pages of old ads that are in Firearms (not in Old Ads) would be gone, but I really don't want to waste mods time with a list of "can you delete these threads for me?" It'd make me feel like a Dova

    But look at all the new members we get from not cutting it off. (Sarcasm font)

    No worries, I’ll go look at the old ads. Maybe I’ll spend a few hours deleting!

    Ya know, there are some things that just get overlooked. I just did a quick glance and realized how much space could be gained from getting rid of the old ads. It won’t take long either.

    Thanks. I’m going to talk to the other guys, but if we move them to old ads, it just clutters up old ads. I think we should delete page 25 and beyond of firearms and 25 and beyond of old ads. Just a thought.

    @dlbleak; I agree. Why not run it down to page 10 and beyond? Those are pretty darned old.

    Even if it was just page 250 and beyond of old ads, that would delete way more than half
