    Combine For Sale and Want to Buy Sections

    I never check the WTB section because it gets so few views and little traffic. I think combining the two sections would see more people locating the parts they need.

    Also, why was the For Sale section shortened?

    I'd be interested to hear a moderator or administrator's view on this.

    It wasn't "Shortened", per se, all the threads are there still.
    on light duty due to illness; please contact my assistants for forum issues. They are Siu Blue Wind, or CbadRider or the other 3 star folk. I am currently at home recovering from a couple of strokes. I am making good progress, happily.

    We could merge them an impliment a simple little thing that would make the WTS and WTB stick out. Add two images, one that says For Sale, one that says WTB. Add these images to the list that thread startes can choose from to add in front of the thread title.

    This will allow you to combine the two threads and increase views.

    Since the majority of threads are for selling items we could assume with no tag an item is being sold, otherwise place WTB or ISO in front of your post to let users know you're looking for a particular item/bundle of items.
