Deleting sold or old listings.

Post by The Captain » Mon Oct 11, 2010 8:55 pm

Tidy up mother fuckers!

Had a few requests about deleting and removing older for sale postings. I guess this makes it easier for you folk to navigate the newer listings and stops the first page being overly heavy with sold items.

So...

If you successfully sold your shit and/or you no longer wish your thread to be there or you just plain changed your mind about selling your shit in the first place please add something like [DELETE ME] in the subject title.
To do so just go into your thread and press the edit button then change the subject title. Once I see the delete request it only takes me two seconds to make it gone.

Pow!

This is not mandatory just an option for folk who wish to do so.

Seem fair?

Do we have to bump the old threads to appear on the first page?

By all means you can do....but, I guess the idea is to keep the first few pages clean of old or sold shit.

I just deleted the marked for deletion threads now, didn't realise how many pages there where in this damn section! :shocked:

Just thinking, there ain't no point at all in that old old shit being there. So, I could set-up an auto pruning thinger that eats the old crap. Say stuff over a 1 month old gets munched?!!?

Does that makes sense to you peoples?!!

I think it's the best idea to keep this section clean. TGP emporium works like this.

I think it's a good idea. It may remove some useful stuff, though. Like the Shatterbox thread for instance..
