Ive been saying this for ever... and nothing has been done.
I know that you guys were looking for a rebuild approach over a band aid approach... but splitting WTB and ST still didn't really decrease the speed of the ST forum at all.
Its really frustrating when you look back an hour later (from creating or bumping) and your thread is two or three pages back. And then you click on threads on the first page and its full of OP bumps. In return we do it back. Its been a bidding war for the front page for years... and it sucks. Anyone who has ever tried to sell something on here can relate. Doug you even said yourself you don't know what its like being on the other side of the site sometimes. Go post a for sale thread with a blue name no one knows in ST and feel for yourself.
Until you guys start up a full classifieds section (which is the only way i can see this really working)... in the mean time can we not come up with some inforced formal rules for ST threads?
1) Pictures are a necessity. - no pictures.. threads gone. no questions asked
2) No threads from anyone with less than a certain amount of posts? Minimum 50 posts or something? (would make sales more legit... in return less people getting ripped off)
3) everyone add suggestions
I realize an overhaul needs to be done, this is what you guys told me a year ago. But nothing has been done. I realize you guys are super busy with other stuff on the site too. Maybe in the mean time can we implement a short term band aid solution that I have proposed?
What does everyone think? Im frustrated but I am trying to be constructive here
