    Now we just need a button to show all classified forums read so the "new posts" isn't cluttered with the classified posts that a lot of us don't or rarely used.
    The entire front page is nothing but classified ads.

    Hmm ... or even a profile toggle for "show classifieds in new posts" so individuals could turn it on/off as they wanted.

    I haven't bought anything from the classifieds here in quite a while and didn't really know why until I really sat and thought about it after browsing the classifieds the other day. The "functionality" of the new classifieds is better than the old. There's a lot of good "improvements" to the functionality of the site. However, the types and quality of posts are just not as good. I see a lot more deals from Dealers than I remember seeing. I remember dealers used to have a separate section. A way to filter out dealer posts would make this useful for those of us who are not interested in dealer posts. If we wanted to spend retail pricing and do the paperwork, I would have gone to a dealer or store to begin with.

    Second, I don't know if the posting policy in classifieds has changed or not but I see a lot more classifieds posts from usernames I don't recognize. Many of them with low post counts or don't post anywhere else on the site. These are the same people who usually posttheir "Like New rifle/pistol" that has over a 1000 rounds shot through it and asking for almost retail price listings in the classifieds. I can't remember the last time I browsed the classifieds to see a deal that I missed that was good and had me kicking myself for not logging on and checking the site sooner. That used to happen regularly on OSA that made it worth it to check the classifieds here as the "go to" place for deals first over any other online classifieds or site. Now, there hasn't been anything I've seen like that. Now I almost don't bother checking the classifieds and instead go to other sites first.

    The classifieds here are starting to become about as useful to me as armslist... which basically is a place I absolutely don't even bother looking anymore. Honestly, I think the local groups on FB are where the real deals from private sellers are at now.

    I can probably comment similarly about the rest of the site, but will refrain since this is about classifieds specifically.

    Thanks for the feedback. We did have a 'For Dealers' forum, and we plan to add that forum back in to simplify that issue.
