I donít know about anyone else but Iím not sure the classifieds should be loaded up like some people do. One of us members wants to list something only to find it 20 items down the list. I think thatís what web sites are for. I know this is going to start a poo storm and maybe itís just me. Hell Iíve been wrong before.

I think we are lucky indeed to have so much good stuff on the classifieds. I do not see anything out of line.

I can not see that the classifieds have been "loaded up" Everything listed seems to be T related

I frequent another forum that had an issue with bumping.
Sellers would continually bump their ad to the top thus forcing newer ads to the bottom and taking an unequal advantage of this style of classifieds.

I like all the T stuff being listed. The flooding of parts actually drives the prices down in the long run, as slow as I work it will be long before I need the parts. LOL

Amazing. Never have I received so many private PMs. Seems thereís a lot of people who feel the same way I do.

Not sure what you are saying here, but I start my day reading the classifieds. I enjoy it and have found many great parts. I am new at this, and am learning almost as much about the model T from reading the ads and replies as anywhere else. It is an excellent resource for me!

Cheers, Bill

I do not see a problem with the way it is. I check it everyday. I like a long list, that means many parts to buy. Anyway all you have to do is scroll down to see the parts, not that hard.

The classifieds would be a whole lot better if they were actually like the old classifieds where an item was listed with contact info and thatís all. Is there at least a way that the classifieds can be configured that will at least keep the ads in the order they were posted? By that, I mean; new ads stay on the top of the page and older ads stay in the order they were posted... That means any responses or additions to ads will not move them to the top of the page.

If you're looking for something in particular in the classifieds, try hitting CTRL-F. A search box will appear in the upper RH corner of the screen, type in what you're looking for and all of the instances of that keyword will be highlighted on the page.

If you're not looking for anything in particular, I found a neat way to look through the classified ads that are not on top.

It's called scrolling. :-O

Kwityerbitchin. Why try to fix something that's not broken. The classified section as well as the forum section are amazing and a huge benefit to the hobby. I've bought many parts from the classifieds and sold a few too as well as gained a wealth of information and made several friends and tons of contacts through the forum. It's the first site I visit every morning and enjoy every second, so lets just appreciate what we have and accept it just the way it is

The only thing I notice is when I look at the ads,I see something of interest,and when i clic on it I see it has sold in about 10 minutes from listing! The good stuff goes SO fast.It is hard for a slow middle aged geezer like me to keep up!
That in and of it's self must mean there is not much wrong with the system.

Often pictures and comments in the classifieds are as interesting and informative as posts to the regular forum !
I rather like the ads as they are.

No need to tinker. It's fine.

Seems to me, the original post was a subtle jab at the bulk postings brought on by the commercial interests of a few posters. I'm not the internet police. My personal opinion won't decide if operating a business on a public forum is acceptable or not. But if it didn't work, they wouldn't do it.

As an occasional poster with commercial interests myself, this classified section is a valuable place to advertise T related stuff. My particular product does not require blanket posting as almost all of my customers find me thru a keyword search. But this classifieds is the only place I advertise, and I'm happy to have it!

If you read the classifieds often enough, you begin to learn the way that specific sellers word and call attention to their posts. It makes it pretty easy to filter through.

If any improvement could be made, it would be to save all of the posts and make a new classifieds section every year similar to what is done with the forum. There are many times I wish I could go back and see what things sold for years ago. Itís also a nice way to identify parts since most of the ads have pictures.

Bottom line is that if youíre not using the classifieds as another reference, youíre missing out!

P.S. itís the easiest and most active classified page Iíve ever seen on the Internet besides craigslist. Same goes for the forum. A newcomer must be pleasantly overwhelmed.

Love it or leave it.

I don't get to many flee markets because of health issues. So, I am left purchasing parts online. I may attempt Hershey, but, will be driving one of those buggies around.
