This information will prove helpful to people as they scan our Classified Sales threads.
You as a seller would be doing a good thing when you have a confirmed payment and the item is sold to:
1. Go to your original post
2 Go to the bottom right area of the post and click edit
3. When the edit window opens look to the same area below the text window and chose 'Go Advanced'
4. When the advanced edit window opens scroll down a bit and look for the words "No Prefix" click the arrow on the box to drop down a menu and then select 'Sold'.
5. Scroll to the bottom of the edit window and select 'Save Changes'
6. You have just become a responsible seller by notifying all who see the listing that your item has been sold.
You may also chose to delete the entire listing while in the Advanced window, this will go a long ways toward cleaning up the classifieds. I see a ton of listings that say, 'Sold please remove', honestly I don't have time to read through all these threads to see what is sold and needs to be removed. If you at least mark the thread as Sold with the prefix as I outlined above, I can delete the threads in bunches rather than one at a time.
Thank You very much for helping to make browsing the ad's easier and the forum a better place to shop classifieds.

Re: Managing Your Classified Sales Here;
THANK YOU ARD!
I posted up almost the exact same info and caught a rash of ship for doing same on another site. (Ard posts there on a regular basis.) Given the number of rods/reels/etc., bought and sold, I recommended the post be altered ('sold' indication) but the post not be removed.
The why of that is your looking at buying 'something,' or selling as the case may be. What's the history (price) of the 'something' in pre-buy/sells?
Information is 'King' and keeps folks from making silly exchanges. Ever read a "I bought it, but I was ripped off" type of post?
On very good boards, like this one, probably very rare, but it happens. My 'clue' to do I want to go there? Seller's previous posting history. Viable content or pure pap?
