No pdf, but there used to be a somewhat limited version in Low Flying.

Please bring back the individual  'WANTED' tab... the combined 'much improved' FS/WANTED set up is a mess and not a step forward...

Bolter, bolter, full power...

Dave, I think I've found what you're looking for, possibly a bit of a mongrel and sometimes a little tatty round the edges but should tick all the boxes .... here Clap

It's a bit like politics - you can't please everyone. When there were 2 forum sections we got complaints about that - no-one ever looked in "Wanted" before posting a for sale item.

If the "tick box" to select FS or Wtd were more obvious, would that be better? 

It's easy enough to have NDP re-instate the Wanted section and re-name the Marketplace to For Sale but it will have a cost. Not so easy to find the "Wanted" ads and move them though unless members have selected the type!

I must be in a minority as I think it's OK the way it is!

No Finmac, I would suggest that the minority are vociferous and the majority are quiet.

Giving more prominence to the wanted posts is clearly an improvement. What will be noticed soon is that posts will be headlined "FOR SALE" or "WANTED" followed by the headline. If simplification and fewer divisions are wanted (people asked for this) then subsuming the much less used sections into relevant popular ones (in this case the wanted and bulk buys with for sale) is logical and perfectly manageable.

You will also notice that our clever members will edit their original posts from "FOR SALE" to "SOLD" (as you, Finmac, did).

GJT, why would you assume that the ones who are vocal are the minority? I gave an example of another forum that works the old way and works well, there's plenty more the same. Or are we determined to reinvent the wheel?

Hi Stu,

I'm putting a case forward.

Of the readers of BC, a dozen have posted in this thread. I'm fairly confident we have more than two dozen readers.

Even with the polarisation of opinion, I am allowed to make the alternative case, surely?
