You could place the classifieds "forum" (where a notification thread is posted with new ads) on your ignore list but once the dust has settled you should only see a couple of new threads a day as new ads are listed. There are many threads today because I am editing old ads to bring them into the search parameters for the new system. Every time I open and edit an ad, it posts as a new ad. This should be completed by the end of the day and then the new threads feed will return to normal.

argh...now, I'm seeing someone else's ad under my profile.... sent a message on the "Contact Us" link which I had to go back to the main AirForums site to do.... Webbie - please add a "Contact Us" link specific to the Classifieds.

I did check this out on my iPhone (in the app) - it's not bad but some of the text and formatting is wonky.

What marketing person came up with this new slick web page? This is not an improvement. At least run a parallel web site or Beta test to make sure everything works before changing over.
I am sorry, but I am done. Too many glitches and page not found messages. I cannot find my watch list and cannot filter only late model travel trailers. Update subscription emails have stopped coming. I will check back in a month to see if classified site improves.

I'd like to say that I just fell in love with the new look...not so much. After looking around last night...

I access the forums through the iPad app and found the interface a tad cumbersome. I was bounced out a few times and taken back to the "home page" when intuitively I felt I ought to have ended up at the previous place in the same listings after looking at a specific ad.

I'm sure more tweaking will eventually work out the kinks.

You know that old saying about good intentions? I can't find what I am looking for anymore and am not sure why the sorting is so random. That said, good luck.

Argh - it won't let me edit my listing - I'm getting an error message saying I can't edit because it's not my listing?? I PM'd the Mod but haven't heard back. Anyone know how to upgrade to a paid listing?

Hi Suzzeee,

PM me with thread details and the changes you want to make and we'll get the edit(s) addressed. We'll also look in to the error message issue.

Are we (Forums) being invaded?

I am still trying to come to grips with the new Classifieds...still don't like them as well as the old ones, however. But, taking a look at the ads I see that we now have these outrageously priced Airstreams being added. (I mostly look at Vintage and parts.) I gasp at some of the prices and have noticed that these ads seem to be placed by brand new "Members" of the Forums....joined up a few days ago. I have a feeling that these "Bottom Fishers" are in it to make these fast bucks....at the expense of other new and unfamiliar Members. My opinion is that these sellers are ones who will ruin our Airstream Life as we know and love it. We should all help and guide the new Guys and flush out the Scammer types.

Some of the sorting features are still being working on and you should see some improvement in that regard but I promise you that the prevalence of high priced trailers and newly registered folks simply to use classifieds is not new. One of the many reasons we moved to a new software platform was to help manage questionable accounts.

Member can help as well by reporting problem ads, inappropriate contact by those interested in their ads, etc. Many eyes are more effective than a few.

I can't imagine buying a $125,000 restoration but clearly some folks will and it's likely that that same buyer isn't going to be even a little interested in the 15K project I might be interested in

I'm sure I'm one of those "high priced" listers you're talking about but I've been a contributing member for over 2 years and believe me I have spent more renovating that Airstream than I'm asking for it. There are people who are not interested in a project. - they want one already done and since it took us 2 years to finish this one I don't blame them. . Timeless and the other renovation guys seem to be doing brisk business too - my reno guy has more work than he can handle. I personally love the process of making something fabulous!!!
