Suggestion: Classifieds
« on: February 22, 2014, 09:30:39 PM »
Still wondering if this was suggested already...

Can we regulate the thread names in classifieds?
A system maybe?
Like,
FS: BOSS, MARSHALL---SD-2, MG100FX---3K,17K(Negotiable)
Or
FS: PEDALGRILL, LOVEPEDAL, GATOR---Pedalboard20x12, Eternity burst, hardcass---2k, 8k, 3k(fixed)
Brand names first then the unit names/item then price? It is hard, really hard to look at the names individually. No more special characters like " *******" to get attention or anything.
For me, all we need in the title is the item and price. No more description or nonsense because they should include that inside the thread.
All I see (mostly) are unimportant words like "shippng included, updated blabla, repriced, and other characters that makes it more dizzy to read."

Suggested: (can be refined)
(FS/FT/MTO/LF) : (ALL CAPS BRAND NAMES SEPARATED WITH ",")---(Small caps item name arranged with the brand names, separated with comma)---(price separated with comma) (Negotiable/Rush/Fixed/Offer depends on the person)

It would be a task to change the system but I think I made a point and that my point would be helpful.

Yes. It was initially suggested by Gunslinger for full rollout across the classifieds boards though it's really hard to implement with just the mods doing the work. We are doing it currently in the Musician's Wanted section AFAIK. If we could get the forumite's commitment though, then we could then proceed with full implementation as suggested.
