    Not sure where else to post. Suggestion for users, not for the board. Mods, feel free to move elsewhere if appropriate.

    Does everyone think a seller should mark their thread when their item has sold?
    The Crowd responds "YESS!!
    Does everyone do this?
    Low chattering passes through The Crowd
    The Crowd responds "Ummm... most of the time, usually..?"

    Does everyone know how to do this?
    Most of The Crowd responds "Yes, it's pretty simple!"
    Rest of The Crowd looks around confused...

    So, here is a quick reminder...

    Please mark your thread sold when you sell your item :)

    People get tired of having to ask "is this still available" only to be told "nope, sold that 2 months ago".

    People also get tired of checking out new activity only to find old irrelevant ads resurfacing.

    It's really easy to mark your item sold...here's how... on your computer... and almost exactly the same on mobile, depending on your OS

    From your ad, click "Thread Tools" above and to the right of your post

    and click "Edit Title"

    Then click the box to the left of your title

    From the pop up, select "SOLD!!!"
    The previous "For Sale" button will change to "SOLD!" on your ad

    As well as on the forum page


    This will make things easier for everyone, both buyers and sellers.

    Thanks for your attention... if you read this far and agree, can I get an "AMEN!" or at least a like?

    Thought the mods said to hit notify mod at the bottom and put in the comment sold and they have a script that takes care of marking sold and changing the color and such. That’s what I do and it works.

    I see that is the method mentioned in the top level of the Classifieds section. I'm sure that works too. If its automated, that's great. If it isn't, I guess I'm saving a mod a few minutes of work by closing my own. Doesn't matter how it gets marked, just wished more OP's went to the trouble of doing SOMETHING to close their thread when an item is no longer available.
