The rules could be simpler if the forums were split: For Sale, Wanted, Trade . ;)

ok ok

I only see this as an issue for members how don’t log in often. For those of us who log in either daily or every other day we see all current listings. Each page on the Yankee Trader contains listings for two to three days, So I don’t see the need to split it. Maybe the simple answer is log in a few times a week.

Precisely. Not to mention, this forum basically has ONE moderator who does this thankless job while working full time and also having a "life" outside of all this. Long ago and far away, I used to help out here as well, before Brandon took over the reigns, it's a LOT of work, so please let's not forget that. Log in, look around and find a deal! :)

Speaking as someone who runs a forum using exactly the same software elsewhere, good splitting of sub forums is the key to having to moderate very little. Expecting people to follow rules in how they post is always a thankless endeavor.

I log in at least twice a day, I still feel what I said above... and extra moderators could be found, they can have very specific limited rights with this software
