    There is the question of extra modmin time moving ads to the correct sub section. Are users not capable of using the search facilities? Que a raft of posts about shouldn't this be over there?
    Remember this is a free facility with a classified added on. It's not a classified that raises funds to feed the admin costs!

    That's my £0.02

    Sounds like a good idea to me, Might it be possible to allow users to block sections of the forums via an ignore type list in their profiles? this is part of some pc tech forums im on and allows me to condense the main page into only what im interested in reading about without having to adblock div's.

    Just browsing the classified and on FX alone, 16 of the the ads in page 1 of my feed were WTB ads.

    Is it time that we perhaps have a sep WTB for each of the main catagories, just to help those seeking or those seeking a buyer, to find all in one place?

    I think it would make it easier for both parties.

    Thoughts?
    A yes from me

    If we do do this, can I suggest the buyer has to quote a maximum budget, given that a seller is mandated to quote a price?

    Hopefully that will dissuade bargain hunters - or at least make it clear who they are.

    I am not against bargain hunters if they have been here forever and they are actually chatting about guitars/music etc.
    It is "kind of" a community, and if someone says "Guys....I am skint. Has anybody got a neck humbucker that is cheap, or even less?" I think we should help, if we can.  Maybe.

    On the main question, I am swayed by the argument that more people see WTB ads with the current arrangement, and then think - Oh, I have one of those somewhere.

    I bought this memory game as Margaret said it was suitable for ages 4-8. I didn't find it too piratey at all. The children (ages 4-8) are enjoying it very much! Thank you.

    @Handsome_Chris Is there a version without a parrot? I don't like games with parrots in.

    I have no problem with someone who’s short of money asking for some help - it’s the people who wants to buy something specific who when contacted want to pay way below the figure you’ve suggested. 

    The idea of stating a maximum budget is you a least know roughly what the person is looking to pay.
