Default If you have sold your HiLo.....

If you have listed your Hilo here for sale, have sold it, or taken it off the market please come back and add a post to your thread stating it is sold. You may also delete the thread you started. I see threads here that are maybe two years old and people are still inquiring about them.

Default Perhaps

they should be deleted after a certain time frame, esp. if the original poster hasn't returned to the site in a year (or two).

Probably a good idea.

Default listing of 4 sale

I'm new here and it is a pain looking for a sale that is still available.

Notice, when you posted your request to delete.

my view from a newbi
thanks

Default Don't delete old sales

Don't delete old sales, why? Because they help to form a data base. If the website does not have enough room then take them down, otherwise do what many other websites do. Keep the completed and old sale ads in a -- ready for it -- """completed and old sale ads""" folder. Folks can look up what one sold for and also see other pics that they would not if thread is removed. If hilo's sold in every shape and size everyday it would be one thing but they don't. So I say do what other sites do -- save the completed and old sale ads. It's normally not that hard to move threads from one folder to another folder. Pain for the mods but a sweep every 3 to 6 months or as it happens when a """sold""" is added is really not that hard to do. I just did that house cleaning on another site, brought almost everything up to this years date.

I think it best to delete the old sales and not keep them. This puts added, unnecessary work on the moderators. Also, what one unit sells for in one part of the country will not be the same as the identical unit in another part of the country due to condition. With the HiLo factory closed, it is now "supply and demand". Some will say their trailer is in excellent condition - many are and many have severe water damage that they don't want to report or are oblivious to. Just like selling your house, if there is a repo'd house on your street, it affects the value on all houses on that street. So keeping the old sales is not a feasible way to price the units. This is just my opinion.

Default RE: If you have sold your HiLo.....

As I'm one person's who has been looking its one big pain.

What was sold before is good if its in your area and not a year or two before.

What if there would be a date after the listing showing when it goes up for sale?
Not when someone visited add and vied it. Very confusing the way it is now.

After a month maybe take it down have it moved to a different place.

Maybe as cl sends a link for you to approve, post or delete and update it.
After say a month the add is moved. No questions asked or a E-MAIL sent each day for a week or two, to the person saying they need to take action before their listing is removed. Then they will responed or keep getting emails.

If the person hasn't sold it yet they would have to re-post.

I'm OK archiving them or deleting them.

Most people that post items for sale in specialty forums will leave the forum or disregard notifications from the forum after an item is sold. So, we can't rely on them.

If it is not much work for the moderator, for sale posts should be deleted or archived after a certain amount of time has passed (30 days?) and the original poster has not bumped the posting. If the posting has been bumped by the original person, then the clock should restart.

Default moving the posts to old sales

I'm a mod on another site. I moved over 500 for sale posts (real clean up) that had been up for several years. Did it in less than 30 minutes. Now I'm planning on doing a sweep every 6 months more or less. That website rule is that the post will be moved to complete or old sales after 90 days.
Whatever I just think that it's a shame to lose pics and pricing info. I know each one is different etc, but these sales just don't happen often enough. Also the pics are still pics. Remember the search button does go through these threads real quick.
But like I said if the site can't handle storing the info or the mods don't have time then they need to go. Also it normally takes me more time to delete a thread than to move a batch of them.
Whatever the mods decide to do works for me just hate to see lost info that could be of help to someone.
