While I am recovering from my spinal surgery I have decided to update the American Airguns classified ads page. I am going to add a login system for posting ads so that I can control who posts ads better. I am also wanting to add a feedback system so that it is easy to find any feedback on users of the page. I am also going remove any listing of email addresses on the page so that they will be protected from malicious use. I am also considering only allowing members of the page to send emails to help eliminate the Nigerians email scammers. I am also going to ad a search function and possibly an archive capability.
While I was in the process of doing this, I thought I would ask the airgun community what other features they might like to have in a classified ads page and get their feedback. If you have any ideas you would like to contribute, please email me at: firstname.lastname@example.org and please put in the subject "Classified Ads Suggestions".
Here are some things to think about:
Is the another format to the display of the data that would be better?
Would you like to have a few lines of the ad description posted with the ad header?
Would you like to see thumbnails of the ad images in the header listing?
Would you like to have selectable displays features so you can customize the display a bit?
Would you like to only have members be able to use the ads email system?
Would you rather have the the menus across the top of the page instead of down the side?
let me know what suggestions you have. Again, email to:
