    Hi everyone love the site. Just an idea, not sure it's possible, can the selling forum be set up to have an automatic expiry...ads could be reposted of course :) not sure if this is doable or if others would find it beneficial. I know that i get so excited reading what the ad is for, price, etc that i dont notice the ad date, especially if there has been recent activity on the thread.

    Everyone can delete their own thread right? It's just laziness on the posters part that they don't delete or mark sold.

    But I guess having it all done for you would help.

    Yes everyone has access to closing and deleting their own ads in the classifieds section. We can definitely look at timing a close for old/inactive threads. @Neopimp

    You volunteering to be the post police? PMing people when their posts are old.

    Ok so the entirety of the Classifieds is set to close inactive threads after 30 days.
    After 60 days the threads will be deleted forever.

    That's awesome, thanks for hearing me out. Hopefully it will make looking through some of the forums a little easier. And a bit more up to date.
    CHEERS!
