    Ok, first the disclaimer. I was not asked to do this, I have not asked if I should do this, I just did it.

    The goal is to provide consolidated feedback on how the forum members feel about the new classifieds. I hope that everyone will keep it honest but CONSTRUCTIVE. Don't just post "I hate it" or "I like it". Give reasons for why you like or hate it and what needs changed if anything to make it better.

    Or if you just want to vote but not comment, I have tried to provide multiple options to fit many different possible viewpoints.

    It is my hope that Okuma Steve can use this to create a system that everyone likes and is user friendly. So please try to keep it on topic.

    Thank you all.

    I'll start with this.

    I like the new feedback ratings and the standardized post layouts make it easier to skim a post. However, I find the new category layout tedious to navigate to see just a few new ads at a time. Perhaps the ability to select multiple categories and see them all at once would work. Honestly trying to use the view all new posts option includes way more than I want to see.

    Too much clicking, too many categories just to check and see if interested in something. Just went through the classifieds and it took almost 40 clicks to see. That was without looking at an ad.

    Have posted my comments elsewhere so will just make the general comment that the new system is too "gimmicky"; I'm a strong proponent of the KISS principle.

    I chose "I like it in general" the only thing I dont care for is the pm reminding me to bump my listing every 3 days. Not a big deal I just dont really care for that.

    What do you mean all of a category? Do you mean the location? or all firearms and accessories vs handguns, rifles, acc.?

    I don't find it difficult to navigate, it's probably just that it is a change...and change is itself difficult. I guess the only thing I can say is it seems harder, more time consuming to post an ad now. Why the Terms of Service thing? Don't we have to agree to TOS to join OSA anyway? Just seems redundant to me, but not a big deal.

    I think he means the ability to chose a main category and see all of the subcategories at once.
