    Lightbulb SOLD items in threads!

    Please when you've advertised something and it has become "SOLD" can we all go back and edit the original post you advertised in, far too many threads which are long winded and make people not realise something may have sold.

    Basically you've a part for 50... Change your advert to SOLD for that item, it will make sense

    Also once your item/items are fully sold the thread will be locked.

    Could you not just close/lock threads once eveything is sold instead of delete it?

    The beauty of a forum apposed to Facebook groups is that it creates a database of information for us all to refer to. By deleting each thread the data is lost and we can no longer view it. As paul080803 says locking them is a better idea.

    Kev the files have been like that all the time, non get left or locked.

    I might suggest that we have a folder which is an archive that is locked but still readable for the rest of the forum.

    The above suggestion sounds good Southie.

    I would say close a thread rather than delete or move it (unless requested otherwise by the OP). From an administrative perspective its a lower overhead, and when searching/browsing its a lot easier to look in one forum.

    who thought this up?

    deleting and even closing a sale thread is a guff idea imho. If one from 10 years ago gets bumped then sure.

    Just put sold in place of the price... Simple.

    @Stuart, thought it would help the sale side of things as it takes ages shifting through items to then get to an end to realise nothing's left to buy.
