Classifieds push....

I know, posting in my own ideas area

Question:

Do you think the classifieds software can do everything needed to be completely successful.

I'm thinking of advertising it (as a feature on it's own) a bit, ad's in the paper and such not, so want to make sure it's *complete* as it were before i do, so people would want to use it....

Basically, be THE uk site for buying and selling fiats..

Only thing I can think of so far is distance, which unless I fork out for the lat long database, ain't gonna happen at the moment, however if this took off, then certainly could be added at a later date...

Oh, and also does the name stand out to you, or would you rename it? (Buy/Sell for example, though personally, i think that looks rubbish...)

Re: Classifieds push....

Is it just me or does it seem confusing on how you would indicate interest or how to bid for an item?

Re: Classifieds push....

yeah it is a bit confusing. I think its more of an bonus rather than a really used feature. It's just the standard advert's i was thinking more of.

Re: Classifieds push....

Is it worth having a homepage to the site again and putting some of the info in there instead of linking from the forum? You might get more response if you had a big button instead of a small link. I think a lot of features get missed because of this as they're not directly forum related.

Ah, you mean the homepage we tried out when this vB forum was being shaken down before going live?! I actually liked that format, but seemed to get dropped quite quickly....

Re: Classifieds push....

couldnt you do a redirect catagory thing for the classifieds aswell cause some people wont notice the parts at the top... or maybe make an index page for the forum with some content so people can choose to go on the forum or classifieds etc. would then be able to develop the site into more than just a forum.
