Default Buy/Sell/Trade Clean-up idea

I'm sure I'm not the only one that gets a headache everytime you find something you are interested in and then go back 20 minutes later to find it and have to look through three pages to find it. I think this section is a great part of the board, but the clutter is unreal.

My suggestion:

When a person joins, limit them to one thread in each sport section. You don't need 20 threads to sell twenty cards. Give the member the power to change the title. Or the member could call his/her thread "Thebear29's for sale thread." and have a subtitile option that could be edited by the member. They could request a thread clean-up to a mod, the mod could then delete all of the posts and the seller could relist.

This is a rough idea, but look at the TTM section of the board, it is the easiest section of the forum to read. Members post one thread of their experience and keep adding.

Please post your idea, maybe it's just me and it doesn't need changed.

I think being able to edit the title would be a great start

I'm not sure about limiting new users to 1 Thread

I Agree with this.

I also think separating buys, sells and trades would help alot.

That would just add to the total amount of threads on the site... I'm sure BO is trying to avoid that... Plus, what if it's a trade and/or buy... Which page do you post on?

Yes please! I'd like to edit the title. If its a single card thread, and the card is gone or sold, it'd be nice to let people know.

I also am in favor of renaming threads.

Another idea, what if we had a Base/RC/Insert/High #ed cards forum, and a Auto/Patches/GU/Low #ed card forum?

A good idea would be to make a button specifically in the b/s/t section that says status of the deal. If the thread is still active then it would say active. If all cards are sold then the status could be changed to Sold and the Mod or admin would know to delete the thread thus creating more space and less clutter in that section. It could be a button that the thread maker can change with color on it so it is easy to distinguish on the list of threads created. Just a thought.

We should have the option to delete your own thread once everything is sold, but we don't need high end forums, because that only creates more whining over what is considered high end

Nope, that's what SCF is for. I don't want to see that here.
