i know i check the for sale section just as much as i check teh rest ofteh board. I find it to be one of the the most useful parts of the site.

The formal classifeds are kind of a pain in the ass. The listings aren't updated as often and its hard to see what new. I often "impulse" buy stuff off the board classifieds where as i only check the formal ones when i am searchign for stuff i'm haoign trouble locating.

I tihnk it SUCKS THE SWEAT OFF A DEAD MAN'S BALLS that the board classifieds are getting killed.
Pardon me, while I whip this out!

At least keep the parts for sale section. We went through this a couple years ago.

Its all about revenue from the classifieds section .

Now we have to pay to list something in the classified section. It WAS part of original membership plan.I think it should be included in our Platinum membership. This is the only board that I know of that charges a membership. I don't mine paying its been worth it,But charging separately for classifieds per month seems a bit much.

They have already decided it so I guess I'll be paying it when I need to sell something again.Oh well.

I do agree we need just 1 classifieds section

Sooooo....I have no problem with the forum classifieds going away.
But aren't half of the ads in the forum classifieds yours?
Or do I have the 2 mixed up?

I think it would really cut down on a major feature of the Board.

I think the classifeds area is kinda dry. I like the back and forth of a forum.

everytime i check the classified section theres a bunch of "new" boats added when in fact there may be only a few new ones and unless you open every make you dont really know whats new and whats been there for months. maybe its my antigue puter or cookie settings. dont know.
i like the for sale section much better because of the search feature and the comments. adding a search feature to the classified section would be a good compromise.
