IL Separate Categories for FS and WTB

I would like to see separate categories for "For Sale" items and "Wanted to Buy" items. Most forums do it this way.

With the categories combined as they are, and the amount of posts, items are quicky moved to obscurity. I posted a WTB item yesterday and it's already on page two.

It would also decrease the amount of time when searching for an item. If I wanted to buy something, I would no longer have to search through the WTB items and visa versa.

Thanks for listening.

It's being discussed. But you might want to try the FS/WTB thread for each region too. They are much less crowded.

I agree, the regional areas don't have much traffic. I'm tired of sorting through all the WTB threads.

I like jbanfield's suggestion for the same reasons. I find it takes too much time to find what I want with the FS and WTB posts in the same category. I usually give up after a couple of pages.

Here is an example I think you'll like. Scroll down to the classifieds.

While where at it how about a little orginization in the for sales section so it's easier to find what your looking for also having separate cats for just the engine/wheels/exterior etc.. here is another good example, and remember just trying to help our site also, and make it much easier to get things done.
