Man, what's going on with the classified ads? I've noticed for quite a while that they have been messed up. The ads are all jumbled up with different dates. It makes it real hard to check the recent ads when there are old ads mixed in. I was looking at boats the other day and recognized one from a long time ago. I thought, "man, that boat hasn't sold yet?" Then I realized that the ad was from October! Can someone please shed some light on this? Thanks

They may be older dates on the post but they are being "bumped", this will help to keep duplicated adds down, the add is still up to date..

Thanks
Thanks Randy, I wasn't sure if they were still valid ads. I'm glad something has been done to cut down on the duplicate ads. How many times does a person have to post the same thing? It won't get it sold any faster! Thanks again. BTW, keep up the great work. Love the mag and online material.

Is it really much better? It is now so easy to bump an ad that some posters do it every few hours. Used to see a duplicate ad come up 3 times a week, now we have some posts being bumped 3 times a day with no changes to price. Examples--Dodge diesel truck for $26K+, Older Ford F250 for $10900, ad with boys sitting in trailer full of rabbits. You can't look up classifieds now without one of these right up top.

Maybe mods can limit ads to only one bump per 48 hours or something? I think a change with good intentions has resulted in posters taking advantage of the situation. Hopefully they will calm down soon or their item will sell so that we don't have to keep seeing the same ones.

I really agree with you Guy. I think that is a great idea. Im also really tired of seeing same adds at top of first page every day.
