Posts not locked after goods are sold
« on: July 09, 2018, 02:07:46 PM »
Who's responsibility is it to ensure posts are closed once items have been successfully sold? I have noticed so many unlocked posts and when you contact the seller only to be told stuff has long been sold. I believe it can save us valuable time if this matter can be resolved as a matter of urgency

This used 2 be the mods' responsibility but now it's the sellers' responsibility.   With all due respect.... a "matter of urgency?"   Aren't you over-playing your role just a little bit?   It's kinda like that guy who played Lex Luthor in Batman vs Superman.     :)

I think it's the seller's responsibility to make a clear request to mod to lock the thread.
But if the thread wasn't lock, no one has the right to be upset, since none of us have paid for the service.

if its long been sold then the responsibility rested on the part of the buyer to actually check the initial date of the thread - if its more than 6 months old then its basically pointless to consider this not sold since if it isnt sold the seller will keep bumping the thread - i never respond to any sale thread that hasnt seen any action for over 6 months - its actually irritating when someone responds to threads that are like 2 to 3 years old because the odds that the seller still has this item for sale despite the thread still being open is actually around 0,0000001%

Funny enough I have managed to get 2 items on 2 different sale threads that were not marked as sold and were stagnant for almost a year and the seller just didnt bump.
i often take a look at much older sale threads and send a pm to the sellers to check if they sold or not. If they sold to bad but at least it gets the thread out the way and reminds the seller to get the mods to lock them.
Time to get back to when I enjoyed listening......no more upgrading, more of a headache than a pleasure

Cmon guys
Simple for a seller to just post “Sold” or “mods please lock” if the sale is abandoned. Think of it as cleaning up after yourself.

 :D  It's that simple.

...  :P I must say, I've sometimes wondered why the need to lock the thread.  But there you go, the seller could just say "*SOLD*" - they could even emphasize it with bold.

... With all due respect.... a "matter of urgency?"   Aren't you over-playing your role just a little bit?   It's kinda like that guy who played Lex Luthor in Batman vs Superman.     :)
  :D ;D LOL

This issue is a far bigger problem on www.avsa.co.za. Nothing on there is ever marked as "sold"

Its quite handy, seeing a locked sale item highlighted differently

You cannot edit your ad which is stupid actually. You can't adjust the price nor mark it as sold. This what they say when you want to place an ad:

"Ads submitted and approved automatically expire after two weeks"

Yeah right, mine has been running for two months now and not expired and I cannot mark them sold (which happened more than a month ago) :whistler:
