Title: Topic Removal
Post by: VE3UGG on April 27, 2014, 04:01:55 PM
There's nothing worse than going to a "buy and sell" website, seeing something you're interested in and realizing that the ad is from 2003 or something. As such, it will be this swap 'n shop's policy (starting on July 1, 2014) that all ads over two years old will be deleted. There's nothing wrong with re-posting it if the item(s) for sale have not yet been sold. In fact, you're encouraged to do so. And, before re-posting, you might ask yourself "why" the item hasn't sold. Price too high? Terms too stringent? Far too expensive to ship? These and other things may be the issue. And please don't go by how many views the item has had. There are many web crawlers/spiders that continually search these and other pages. There's a good chance that at least HALF the views were by crawlers and not real people!
