    Bummer on the classifieds.... Now the OP will have to answer the same question 20 times instead of one post. Plus I learned things from the Q&A's. Personally feel like they took the biggest hit on the change. Traffic will slow down for sure, but maybe that is the intention? Every thing else seems good, just a little getting used to.

    OP should put the answers in the ad so the questions stop coming. What are they trying to hide?

    Hiding something? Maybe just didn't add something most likley. Dang, that is all you got out of my post ? I did say everything else looks good. So much for "tell us what you think..."

    Serious question. What is a seller usually getting asked about? My ads have always been boring and sell quickly without questions. Is there something a seller could try to hide like a bad boat or stolen item?

    I think I am a pretty savy old fart, but I can't find the BOATS FOR SALE! I can find marine electronics, and boat parts and other shit, but no boats for sale. WTF

    @Jason , you've kinda condensed Washington down into nothing.

    No more WA freshwater report page?

    WA classified merged w/ all others - this sucks. We all do a ton of local trading on that page. Or at least used to.

    No more WA fishing report section - it's now jumbled w/ general WA fishing chit-chat. Also no bueno.

    And I don't hunt myself, but plenty others in WA do and miss that dedicated page.

    What's the reason for squishing all of these together? It doesn't benefit users and sure as hell won't drive engagement.

    It's not looking like an option program-wise. From an admin perspective, it literally takes hours a day dealing with the classifieds bullshit. It was wild west. Lots of people being scammed, I was constantly chasing them down and banning them before they did any harm. Then people shitting on someones ad, lots of playing clean up and blocking one guy from another, stepping in and telling them to knock it off to end up in an hour conversation.

    ahhh, the good ol’ days LOL

    Liked the old format better, it was much more user friendly. I’m pretty open to change and improvements... but this rollout was very unorganized.

    I doubt this format could get better, maybe in 10 to 20 years. Right now not user friendly. Acts like 3.11

    It's more about staying with the times and updated software. We were 5 years behind. It's all default software right now, we have to tweak it out to how we like it...

    Seems more like you were 5 years ahead in my opinion. I learned in the past that changes are not always for the better. I'm still using software from 20 years ago because it works and the new replacement is bloated garbage.

    It just seems like the current online web sites today is mostly about a pissing contest of popularity for high schoolers. I'm going to shut up and go back to watching TikTok girls dance by swaying their hips while Phut Hon Remix songs are playing in the background.
