Can people who are selling cb$ on FS/WTB forum please confirm when the money has gone on the same thread. Twice recently I have answered the thread and been told the money has already been sold.

I think this is a reflection of people trying to save money. Why waste an extra 2k when everything has been sold.

I've never been a big fan of the fee to post in FS/WTB, but I somehow doubt it will be changed.

How about an option to close the thread free of charge, with the ability to have a message as to why its closed, then? It would have to be mediated to make sure people aren't abusing it to bump their messages, or post an update to their sale...

I like Daz's idea. Even after your post expires people can still send you a chatmail regarding the sale, so the ability to stop Chatmails from being sent would be nice.

How about just charging $2k per day until the thread is closed :)

Or alternatively, just have a "Mark Thread Closed" option with
no message option simply saying, "Sale Over" or closing the thread.

Why waste a 2k on a deal of 2 mil? That is 0.1%... humbug!

I think it is nothing less than decent to list that your service has been fullfilled...

honestly if you cant afford 2k then you need to be shot.

What about when the post closes due to time?

Why not just have a button for the thread poster that puts a big sold across the original post.Looks like a stamp could have a paid in full stamp to ! I have no Idea if its even possible I doubt if its worth Jons time ,but it would be neat.

not worth the effort I think Slash... :)
