    The voting pole doesn't seem to work on here, my last pole didn't.

    Anyways, Just wondering what everbody thinks of the Forsale forum now. I was the one who brought up the idea of changing it into catagories, but to be honest I kind of miss the old way. Seems like the listings have slowed down alot.

    Like i said before, I'm a life time member regardless, but since i brought it up, i felt obligated to see if everbody liked it or not.

    I'm up for changing it back if everbody else is, but its not up too me. I know i'm puttin alot of extra work on steve with the "ideas" so this was my last one. lol :D

    it worked when I voted right after you posted that poll. The polls are screwed up that when you vote it takes you to another post but it works as far as I know.

    Keep the new way.

    it sucks, but i'm not here much anymore, so I guess it doesn't really matter.

    I like seeing everything on one page. It's a pain in the a$$ to go thru 8 forums including the wanted section.

    Change it back.

    Change it back to 1 page. It was much easier to read then.

    I think "Free" should be it's own column, and "Misc." should be it's own column.


    I like it now because you it helps sort out 'the market', so to speak. If I'm looking for a running, complete rig, I go there. If I need springs or axle shafts, I go there. If I'm trying to find 44" Boggers, I go there.


    I prefer the division of the section because it does suck sometimes to weed through four dozen thread titles trying to (hopefully) find what it is you're looking for.

    I like the sub-category setup of the section, but I think it could use some work.

    Change it back.. I just liked browsing. Never know what I may need. With one forum, that was easier.

    Change it back. It takes too damn many clicks to see everything with the new setup. :mad:

    Change it back. Looks like the traffic isn't as great either.

    The the sub-categories should become the main ones - on the main forum board. So, one click, and you're looking at the stuff you want to see.

    Personally, I vote to keep it as-is. I think it is much more organized this way, as long as people put the right posts in the right groups.

    It would be cool if you could keep the little list at the top for people that are looking for a part but under that there was just a page of everything that people could browse through.

    If that can't be done I Vote Change it back

    My original Idea was to have 3 Catagories.

    ALL PARTS(If its not togehter it goes here)

    COMPLETE RIGS(running or not, rigs go here)

    YARD SALE(free stuff, and non truck related items)

    I' kinda like it back the other way too, but i'm here EVER single day, usually checking 10 times or more. :D
