Maybe add another section on the classifieds for "wheels and tires" since there seems to be a good many of those ads. and maybe an FMTV section since none of their stuff fits any of the other trucks. I mean even doing an FMTV/HEMTT/HET section combined since their stuff being pretty scarce someone doesn't have to search thru all the normal classifieds to find them.
I could splinter the classified section with more sub-sections. But there's several issues, first being people won't post in the right forum. Second it will not really limit searches. And if it was branched out, people might put the wrong item in the wrong category, then when searching under specific category, you wouldn't see the part you're after.Would be nice to have sections specific to the vehicle under parts. Maybe even a way to put "closest to me" for large items.
We're now running https! A new thread will be up shortly. This was fuuuun......
Ads are automatically pruned once a week after 30 days of inactivity. I will have to review, but I believe we've got editing enabled in the classifieds. I think however the delete is a global thing. So if a thread lives outside the user ability to delete, it either needs to hit 30 days of inactivity to be auto-pruned. Or the user would need to report the post to have us delete it.How about getting rid of and editing classified ads? Am I missing something obvious?

I'm not opposed to this splintering down of things. I just know the community struggles at times with placing threads in the right section. I think the proposal would simply confuse things even further.
The locations are actually subtitles, not categories. Basically a form text to add in addition to the title. The classifieds previously had no sorting at all for location. I thought about making state sub-forums, but I knew the mess that'd get into. As a compromise we went down the state title form route instead.Could you just make sub categories for the region instead of having Washington and Florida ads next to each other.
There's been several donations. Many of which were only people asking to donate to the site. I decided to grant them upgraded memberships based on their donations as well. (Extending many already upgraded members) As to your other question, this forum is for that actually. https://www.steelsoldiers.com/forumdisplay.php?33-SS-Site-News-Improvements-Updates-Suggestions(Paid Members Posting in classifieds) What Is the difference between a paid member or someone who gives donations? (suggestion) Maybe a section for people to go and find member added tips on how to use the site. (How To) Post Pictures, Leave Feedback, Search, Etc.
Ooops, let me see if I can address that now. I'm going to use you as a test subject. Please let me know if you're still seeing the ads.I know that the extra google ads that showed up a while back were removed for premium members. Any chance they could be removed for vendors as well?
We get it, advertisements are annoying!
