    To remove an ad

    1) From the classifieds main page click "My Ads" in the upper left corner.
    2) The next screen will be a summary of your ads. Click the title of the ad you want to remove from the "Ads" column.
    3) This will bring up the detailed description of the ad. At the bottom of the ad, underneath the description and keywords will be a check box that says "Delete Ad". Check the box and then click the "Submit" button.
    4) Poof! the ad is history.

    Gregg will have to address the feedback issue.

    There is no check box that says "Delete Ad". These are the checkboxes:

    We are working on the server performance issue that some of you have been running into to.

    This is a hardware related issue mostly, and it will take some "resources" to speed things up.

    We have resources marked for this, but it won't happen for a while. Basically, we're going to take the old classifieds server offline (after the last ads placed have run their full 30 days), and re-allocate this server to the new classifieds.

    Thanks for your patience. In the meantime, we'll keep trying to tweak different things to make it faster.

    To piggyback on the feedback issue - I bought an item from the classifieds, and would like to leave positive feedback, but since the ad is now removed, is there a way to leave feedback?

    The seller pulled the ad as soon as I committed to the sale, but I wasn't in a position to leave feedback since I hadn't yet received the item.

    Any help?

    Thanks in advance!

    Cheers, Chris

    First of all - it seems that you typed a RELIST IT(!) option, but your screen capture shows SOLD IT!. Perhaps issues are confused here?

    Second, if you've SOLD IT(!) then mark it as such.

    Third - mark it in your ad, right at the very top of the description page, like this;

    BRAKES ARE SOLD!

    You can even put it in bold;

    BRAKES ARE SOLD!

    That should help to catch people's attention and keep them from contacting you.

    I would suggest keep the zip code search but please put back the city the seller is in. Having the city, state, country the seller is in tells the buyer a lot more about the legitimacy of the deal, or prehaps if they know the person selling, or maybe they saw them at some race. Worked better for me, anyway.

    I never apologize. I'm sorry, but that's just the way I am.

    No confusion on my end - the screen capture is the result of following Call_me_Clyde's instructions.

    I got THAT part - the screen capture was from an item that hasn't sold yet.

    That ain't the point - the point is, where is this "DELETE AD" button? I want to delete the ad for my fork, not because I sold it, but because I want to put it on eBay.

    Looks like LarryG spotted a problem ... the ads can be deleted by mods and admins, but not by the user who originally posted the ad.

    LarryG - this is fixed now ... you should be able to see the delete checkbox

    Mike, any chance of adding a country check box to the ad database?
    That would allow searching by country (eg. Canada, Mexico, Australia, New Zealand, etc) to find bikes and parts locally. MTBR gets a lot of international users, but from what I've seen classified users are mostly in the US, probably for this reason.

    Hi Gregg
    I would like to know how to make some changes to my existing add that I have already posted in the past week. I also have not even seen a email on my Bike and I have had friends tell me they have sent them. Thank You

    How to post feedback on a transaction ...

    Go to the ad ... find the user's classifieds profile link under the text "For Sale By". Click that and you'll get a page where you can leave feedback.

    I know this is burried as we have 3 different profile pages (galleries, forums, classifieds ... well, four now with the new blogs) We're hoping to roll all these profile pages into one sometime soon

    Good idea. I've added a Country text box to the post ad form. (Checkbox might work/look better, but we'll see how it pans out.) I'll add a Country column to the ad listing page once we get some ads with Country data in them.

    I also think the supersize is too small. make it the same size as the ebay supersize. images were bigger before in the old classifieds, no steps backwards, please.

    I never apologize. I'm sorry, but that's just the way I am.
