Don't know if it's just me, but I can't seem to see the classifieds on the mobile version of the site.

Me too, wonder if it's a general 'not finished yet' type thing...?

Hi mate

Check my earlier post:

View Postped, on 19 November 2012 - 04:24 PM, said:

That's right. I've disabled it for the time being. It'll cost £1.75 and your advert will have a picture rather than a grey box in the forum index. It'll help people see what's for sale and help people shift their items!

There were some preview links in post #1 but now the test site has closed so they don't work.

Cheers

Aswell as the aforementioned malware issue it would appear listing in either the old forum for sale forum or the new classifieds section is not working. Sorry, not sure whether its helpful or not to keep posting problems as you're probably upto your ears in it. The £1.75 btw seems reasonable :)

Looking at ads in the new Classified section...I can see the ads just fine on my iPhone, but can see no way of contacting the seller - it doesn't even show me who the seller is.

Am I missing something ?

Ped, on the 'forums' home page it used to indicate the date/time of the last post against each forum. Now it just indicates the number of topics and replies. The last post date was useful as a quick way of scanning which forums had been updated since you last looked. Any chance of resurrecting this? Or maybe I'm the only person who found it useful, in which case please ignore!

Hmm, thanks I'd missed that button. All the new posts are jumbled up together though. Would be nice to be able to filter this by forum, although I guess that would be the same as visiting the individual forums! I just found the 'last post date/time' marker on the old forum homepage a useful way of quickly scanning which forums had new posts since I last looked.

Ped, et al

question.... the old sales forums had some nice terms and condition which you had to abide by - where are they on the new one?
Reason I ask is there currently is an item up with a price of £0.00 and asking for offers. Naturally I offered him the £0.00 he had stated but wondered what the rules were in the new sales forum - has it changed at all?

Hi Luke, no, not in principle. They will need re-wording to suit the new area but the same rules will stand.

This a a classic 'it wasn't broken but we've fixed it'...
Who was complaining about the old 'market place' forum??
It was, and is. running perfectly well.
The old system was much better.

This is really annoying to be honest.

Thought I had already explained it somewhere - it's to raise some funds for the development of the forums. We felt this was the fairest way to do it and want to at least try it and refine it as we go. Sure it'll divide opinion, but that's natural. Remember how many people HATED the new forum software?

It's also much easier to work with for our mods. The fact of the matter is that we simply need a way if generating some cash and this is the fairest way to do it. I, and lots of other members, like it too. I think once its all done you'll find it really attractive and easy to use, especially as a potential buyer or browser.

Can we all chill out, wait until its finished, try it and then either modify it or change it? We have got other ideas and we can always have a re think so don't worry. If anyone else has any other ideas we could use, shoot!

Cheers
ped

hi ped

maybe you could create a thread somewhere for opinions / ideas re this specifically.
i've just created one in 'general' where i would like to get some feedback to be helpful, but please feel free to delete it if you want to make an official one.

like i say in the other thread, i think this forum is great and i appreciate the time and effort from your side.
the frustration is simply because i like the current marketplace and i feel we're losing rather than gaining.

i will stop going on about it now. :)

If it's going to cost development money to finish the classifieds, I'd think long and hard before carrying on... removing the classifieds from the everyday community is a massive backwards step, and I can see no good come of it.

No it's all sorted. Just the developer has had to leave it for a bit due to other commitments but we'll be done soon.

Thanks for the feedback, we'll see. If it doesn't work, we won't carry on with it!
