June 3, 2017 - Back to the OLD Classifieds

Recommended Posts

Saturday, June  3, 2017

Folks, based on customer feedback from the membership, we have switched back to the old way of doing Classifieds on TGO.  This morning we have switched away from the Classifieds software and are once again using the forums themselves to provide you with a place to Buy, Sell, Trade.

We apologize for any confusion or inconvenience that will arise from this.  While we think that the Classifieds software had potential, it was simply not delivering 100% on our expectations of it.  We believe that this move back to using forums and threads will allow you all to better keep tabs on what's new in our Trading Post area and will make it easier for those of you who visit the site from mobile devices, as well.

 

So what do you need to do?

Potentially, you will need to do nothing.  But please visit your existing ads in the Trading Post forums and make sure that they have the information you need in them.  Also be sure to check for the presence of any photos that you might have added, or add them back if they are missing.  We tried to retain them, but I am not completely certain that it worked.

Because of this, I am increasing the amount of attachments storage available to our Benefactor and Lifetime Benefactor members so that you now have more than enough space to ensure that you can attach photos to your ads.

  • Benefactors now have 50MB of storage.
  • Lifetime Benefactors now have 100MB of storage.

 

One Last Note

Inside the threads created by the old Classifieds software will be links to "View Advert" or similar.  Those won't work.  Ignore it.  As these ads age out, they will go away.  Please don't report it as a problem.  It's not.

 

Again, please accept our apologies for the need to make these changes this morning.  We do hope that they are positive and helpful.

In order to make using the Trading Post forums a little easier, I have created a new menu item at the top of every screen.

Using this menu you can (1.) quickly access the Classifieds forums, (2.) search for and display new Classifieds Ads that you haven't seen or have been updated since you last saw them, (3.) search for and display Ads you posted, and (4.) view the Buyer/Seller feedback section.

I think this pulls a few common features together in one neat little package.  Hopefully it helps you.
