    could you consider incorporating the following:

    add a size column for framesets and complete bikes - so you don't have to actually double click every ad (where the size doesn't show in the description) to figure out what size frame/bike is for sale

    add a steerer length column for the front forks section

    add an eye to eye / stroke column for the rear shocks section

    This would help wasting time opening up ads that are not applicable to the size frame you ride, if the fork, shock would even fit on your bike etc.

    When posting a comment to someone else's ad, the interim page says something like "You've successfully edited your ad", which is presumably not right.

    Can you give me a link to your ad? Edit: Nevermind, I found them.

    Hey Gregg!

    Question - with regards to the Contact Seller feature - I found something i'm after, but it's "too good to be true". I sent the seller a P.M. before noticing the Contact Seller feature (i'm bright, eh?!?!?!?). Question is - does the Contact Seller feature go through P.M. or e-mail? I don't want to send another P.M. and seem ..... pushy (I know he's a busy man).

    As always, PATIA!


    And since i'm here - MikeG check you P.M. box please!


    Keep up the great work all!

    EDIT - sorry, one more - if I place/open/start an ad now, can I add a pic(s) later, like 1 or 2 days after? Thanks!

    Gregg,

    I noticed the other day that you had implemented a user classifieds link under the user gallery link, but now neither is being shown?

    The gallery link has always been really useful, and even though only a small percentage of users would be posting advertisements, the classifieds link was interesting too. Do you have any plans to re-implement at least the gallery link?

    And welcome to MTBR eatsleeprunbike!

    Cheers, Dave.

    Zip code and price not required.....

    seems like you'd want to make this a required field?

    I just posted 2 ads (sorry, not meant to spam) and missed the postal code (Canadian, eh?!?!) in one of my ads. It wouldn't complete the final step untill I entered it. Worked for me. The price I can't comment on as I had that correct from the start.

    And since it's been mentioned - any help for us Canucks that have a xxx xxx Postal Code format to help prospective purchasers "figure out" shipping? Just curious. Not sure it'd make a difference either way as "we" would have to/should get a quote anyways.


    And one more blab that I was going to post anyways .....

    CANADIANS!!!!! - please be sure to put the word Canada somewhere in your ad. We can find each other's ads easier. It doesn't matter if it's in the Description or the Keywords text, just get it in there somewhere. PATIA!

    Hey guys!

    Question with regards to the Comments footer - is there any way these can be made to provide an e-mail notification? Or maybe they are and I missed it? I just noticed I received one and didn't have a clue it was there.

    I'm just curious to know if it's "our" sole responsibility to tend to or if we can get a little help.

    Hi guys,

    I'd like to leave postive feedback for a seller from a recent transaction. Can you tell me how to do this? I've been looking all over, but maybe it's right in front of my face somewhere?

    Thanks! Great work on the classifieds, BTW!

    Cheers, Chris

    “Other Components” or “Other Accessories” sounds logical to me.

    The search function could come in handy too.

    Hey Chris, you have to click on the sellers username to access their "profile" (it says "For Sale By" then their username is below). That'll take you to another page - it's there that you will find the option to leave feedback.



    As for my Q - I think I found it. Same area where you select the option to Edit Ad or mark SOLD IT!. I'll give it a shot and see what happens. Someone wanna do me a favour PLEASE?!?!??!?! Go to my ad for seatposts and put something in the Comments box so I can see if it worked????? PATIA!

    Here's a link to make it handy (NOT meant to be spam just a test).

    Quick question what's the best way to call "dibs"? should an email be sent to the seller or will a quick reply added to the ad be the best way to get an item first.

    Hey Gregg & Mike:

    Any way to make it easier to search for ads for items in Canada? (Shipping used stuff across the border can be a real pain in the...)

    The distance by zip code doesn't work for us since we have postal codes instead.

    If you added a "Canada" location button or something I think you would get a LOT more Canadians posting ads.

    Really up the seller, I would think.

    For example, even though buyer X is not the highest "bidder" or "first" person to respond, the seller may choose to go with buyer X over buyer Y because buyer X is local.

    So, given scenarios like that, I think it best to go with seller's choice instead of purely on a first response "system".

    If the sellers use their noodle and put the word Canada in their ad somewhere (like I pointed out above) then it's taken care of. IMHO, and I know it means little in this case, it's up to the seller. I know, I KNOW, not the same as what you're talking about. I believe you might be referring to something more like a flagging system of some sort?

    You have problems shipping to the U.S.????? REALLY?!?!??!?!??!? I can understand receiving from the U.S., but sending???? REALLY?!??!?!???!!? Please, DO share. (or just send me a P.M. if you don't want to hi-jack the thread)

    Hey, Mr. Moto,

    This feature is working now, please give it a test (either send yourself a message, or have a registered friend send you a message via the "Contact Seller" link).

    Sorry for the delay, it was intermittent and a little hard to track down.

    Please LMK if you are still having any difficulties.

    2 fast questions:

    1) How do I remove my ad once I've sold something?

    2) Is there any way to make it easier for the buyer to leave feedback? Right now, he/she has to navigate several screens, and most buyers aren't motivated to do all that.
