Remove old classifieds

Good morning, I was browsing through the classifieds. Iím wonder, would it be possible to send a blast email to just the classified posters requesting them to remove their add if the item is no longer available. It would be a lot less reading and, less disappointing to look at an ad only to find itís been sold.

Just a thought, thank you.

Classified ads are purged monthly. Anything over 8 months old is removed. Members have the option of marking their ads SOLD IT! (not making a comment saying SOLD, but actually marking the ad SOLD IT!) & then the software will automatically remove the ad after a set period. Or, they can use the Contact Us link (found at the bottom of every page) to request their ad be removed.

There is great need for a sarcasm font.

This still doesn't work very well. I suggest 8 months is way too long to leave an ad up. Try one month. The classified is full of stuff that has either not been marked sold, the seller has given up, and no one responds when sent a PM.

I suggest a 6 month automatic delete.

Works well on other sites.

And, if marked sold, moderator delete.

Much cleaner Classified section.

Much cleaner Classified section.
On another SK site we (mods) have made 6 mos the cut off and can / do "archive" ads with no activity w/in 6 mos. Archived ads are closed to new posts but are visible if anyone is interested.
We do apply judgement and sometimes will PM owners that their ad was archived and they can repost or contact a Mod if they would prefer it be reactivated.
Most times there is no response.
We have also set some min requirements for for sale ads to include complete description of unit (mfg, model, year), a selling price and location of the item/ unit. Those that don't comply are removed & archived and sellers invited to resist with complete minimum info.
We have also discouraged any discussion / comments in the For Sale section. We do delete discussions / comments w a note to PM the owner or start a discussion thread in an appropriate section.
No piggybacking someone else's ad... no I have one for sale also
Above has improved the classified section.
We also have 4 catagories...
Boats For Sale
Boats Wanted
"Other" (related items but no boats) For Sale, Wanted, Free
Archive - old closed ads in case we mods need to reactivate any or others are interested in scanning prior ads.
