buysell works fine for me. but i do have a couple of sudgestions.

could you make it so people can select what countries they are willing to ship to, especially for the US/Canada buy sell. something like 4 boxes:
Shipping:
*Local
*US
*Canadian
*worldwide
The seller could choose 1-4 options and it would just show up under the ad, example:
_____________________________________________
"buy my bike, blah blah blah blah balh ablh
-sweet tires
-reflectors!!@!
-TOE CLIPS
$2,500 + shipping

Seller will ship to:
Local
Canada
US
_____________________________________________
i feel this could help eliminate the classic "hey will you ship to 'blank'" messages, every time one of these is send it uses bandwidth (correct me if I'm wrong) so it could help save on bandwidth used even if it is just a little. Also help standardized the buy sell a little more.

maybe then allow for people to break down searching the buy/sell by the same shipping options.

just some suggestions on how to make the buy sell maybe a bit more efficient

yeah thats a great idea. Every message i get from the buy/sell is always "will you ship to ______?".

Ive posted something and now it wont let me edit it, it comes up with (GIF Image, 32times32 pixels) except the "times" is a times sign i just cant find it on my keyboard.
A "Times sign" is just a capitol ex: "X", just like a "Minus" sign is a dash: "-"... afterall, there's no sense puting extra buttons for the same things...

look left side.


Since I signed up for PB I've had a classic case of tunnel vision on the "Search" module. Now that I've managed to locate what was in plain sight, the buy/sell sort by location is very helpful.

Put in your real asking price and not "$1." It also says in the warning. "This is an AUTOMATED message. Your ad was deleted by the automated system. Your ad {Eclat Cyan blue seat (Darker in real life)}, for $ 1 in {BMX Seat/Post/Clamps} was deleted because of ONE of the following reasons..... 1. You do not have a real asking price. NOT ALLOWED to post general, how much is it, swap, or make me an offer ads! 2. You have posted your ad in the incorrect category or multiple categories. 3. You have multiple ads for the same item 4. You do not have enough information in your ad 5. Your ad is in all caps. 6. You are selling items that are copyrighted. 7. WANTED ads go in the WANTED section only. Wanted ads must be for specific model/item Please fill in accurate information in your ad in order to help buyers. These rules were made by the users in order to make the buysell most effective for everyone."

No, it's an automated message that when a mod deletes an ad, a user automatically gets that warning posted above. The ad may have been deleted for one or more of those reasons.
