WTF's up with GJ classified section
« on: May 22, 2012, 11:21:48 PM »
Looked at the classifieds after work and I see a new lay out and a now you can only respond to an ad by PM angryguyx I tried looking at the new ads and it made my eyes hurt. Frankly for the first time in over 3 years I didn't give a damn what was for sale over there. I don't understand, take a good thing and fu%k it up. I hope some of the sellers make the switch and come over here.

Shit he did the same thing to the want ads! Dumbass angryguyx

That's pretty stupid...you can't see who's staked a claim to things for sale...so you could be wasting all sorts of times picking out stuff that's already been spoken for.   :mad:

He's also said there's going to be some changes to Free Parking.  I'm sure they won't be for the better.

This car is a pile of crap. Noisy, rattly, slow and underpowered and has a reputation for being unreliable. I want one.

you need to assimilate to the borg. :POKIE:

i voted no change and voiced my opinion but alas the the majority has spoken if the poll was real, all 24 hours of it.

the only change i felt it really needed as well as this sight is a minimum post count. i think i will see if the guys are on boad with that. it has no been a real problem here but it has been there. if you can't make at least 15  or 20 real posts before you sell something, go to ebay.

I don't like not being able to post payment sent it affords the opportunity for buyers not on the up and up to sell an item 10 times and skip town with a bunch of money.

it makes it a back door deal. it is especially bad when you are dealing with a newer person.when nothing is recorded in full view what sort of record is there. sure you can save pm's but nobody else can see them. my guess is that fraud will be more of a problem. so and so won't respond to my pms, how do i know if i got, if it sold  and any other bit of info relevant to the sale?

how about this type of activity?seller renigs on the deal because someone makes an offer better than what he originally accepted? i don't know, just seems like a problem that didn't need fixed.

The real problem was that the rules posted weren't being enforced. So the easiest way was to make new rules that don't need enforcement. Hopefully there will be enough complaints that changes will be made.

Maybe garagegazette will have some more classified traffic!

It became more difficult when all the threads started with "myforsale" - never could tell from the title what was being sold.  I used to take a quick look at the titles for interesting tools..
