Hey - I know nothing about making or running a forum. I love this one and use it all the time. I also belong to CGN - Canadian Gun Nutz - and have noticed that in their classified ads forum only the initial poster can comment. And they only comment to bump the add up weekly. You get a warning/temp suspension if you bump quicker than 7 days. I may be the only one but I think allowing the price police or whomever to comment on every for sale thread is not very helpful. I would much prefer if there was just the pin pictures, pin statement and pin price. Even if that price is ridiculous - I can just ignore it. I have jumped on for sale threads here to thank a seller so there are some good points to having an open classifieds forum. But you just have to look at Pinside to see that sometimes the negative outweighs the positive. If most of us really don't care about what a pin sells for then having a closed classifieds where you can't post comments will keep it cleaner. And easier to shop on. I won't have to wade through a bunch of "you sold me a bad pin" comments or "this price is way too high I paid way less in 1977" when all I want to do is find a deal on a game. Food for thought.
