Classifieds hit & run

There seem to be quite a few hit&run postings in the classifieds - people that register, make one post in the classifieds and vanish without ever responding to any replies. Is there some way of stopping this or deleting a posting in the classifieds automatically after say a month?

Makes you wonder about how much they want to sell whatever it is they are posting.

Re: Classifieds hit & run

I dunno. There were a couple of bus projects that I'd have been interested in.

I'm supposed to be buying a bus off a guy in Atlanta but I fear he's not going to fix the oil leak nor replace the bald tires so I've been casting around, looking elsewhere.

If we don't find a converted/partially converted bus "locally" (wherever that may end up) for Das Mel, then we will be heading up to Alto, GA to buy a shell. That's our plan.

Re: Classifieds hit & run

We can definitely clean up the Classifieds / Wishlist portion of the forum. I don't necessarily see a problem with someone registering just to post a bus for sale... not everyone who owns a bus is a skoolie or has an interest in the skoolie culture, but they do know enough to think this might be a reasonable place to advertise their bus.

Of course the "Buyer Beware" caveat is always in place no matter what venue houses a purchase. I'll take some time when I get back home tomorrow and see if I can clean up some of the older stuff. If people register solely for the purpose of posting their bus, I can understand why they wouldn't come back and delete their classified post when it sells. They don't have any ties to the site... they don't care.

This topic came up years ago and Steve said he didn't have a problem with it. I think it helps with Google rankings and SEO.
