Maybe this already being done, but shouldn't a post be removed after an item is sold?

Some say the pictures, if used, provide useful information. Also, the "going price" is preserved for reference. Sometimes other posts link to useful information to all Forum users, not just the buyer and seller.

The seller can easily edit the subject of the thread to indicate a sold status. This will appear in listings of threads for all to see. Something like "SOLD, Zenith Walton for $50".

Sometimes a deal falls through, and there are potential buyers in line. Keeping the thread makes it easier to determine who's up next.

I say that after 45 to 60 days it should be deleted....sold or not
that way band width is conserved and we don't lose a carrier like we did a few months ago.
its a shovel of sand off the beach...but its a start
do people really look for things for sale or wanted that are 10,15 or even 30 pages in....no very often...sometimes but not very often.
If it is sold....remove it.
if the sale fell through....repost it
still want it/need it after 30 days....repost it

all these dozens and dozens of pages of usless classifieds is doing......is....... :wink:....well.....NOTHING actually.......

I really dont think they should be deleted. As mentioned they can provide helpful information. I've managed to identify, or at least get pictures of certain radios from old classifieds posts that i couldn't find elsewhere.

Many people simply edit the title of their FS or WTB post with the word SOLD or FOUND to let people know it's status. Doing this will not bring the post to the top of the 1st page.

After a minimum of 3 days, if the item is not sold or found, you can bring the post back to the 1st page if you wish by replying to your post.

Having them there does not eat up bandwidth. Bandwidth usage only applies to pages being looked at that download to a persons computer. Having the items just sit there takes up small server space but has nothing to do with bandwidth usage.
