Hi all, to give everybody's advert a fair chance at the top of the for sale section and to keep the forum easier to search can I propose a new system for listing parts?

If you are doing a clearout and have lots of individual parts for the same car, please group them all in the same thread rather than starting a new subject for each part.

Not only will this highten your chances of selling parts but it will stop other members adverts leaving page one after the first day.

Many thanks,

Dave.

It certainly isn't a dig, and there are no unwritten rules - the for sale section is one of the busiest parts of the forum and I'm sure all the users (and search engines) appreciate as many listings as possible...if anything, your recent posts has highlighted a possible issue that we have not really come across or considered before.

Not a dig in the slightest, it was just an observation that a lot of posts were leaving the first page within day one.

In my experience here if you start a post with a title like "loads of 70's beetle parts *clearout*" and keep adding to it, all your parts for sale return to the top of the section and get seen again rather than dissapearing one at a time off the bottom of page one.
