The main sections are more evident because they are the most read.
So, who want to sell something thinks that more people will read the advertisement.

You are right. I have moved some items to the classifieds. I'm not sure everyone fully understands the name. I will get with Mike and see about it.

just put "(buy & sell)" behind "classifieds" or something like that or delete the word "classifieds" and change it to "buy & sell"
Change description text "Paso items for sale or wanted" to "bikes or parts for sale or wanted"

just an idea

another idea would be "market place" - buy & sell bikes or parts

"market place" is even better -- since it captures buy, sell, trade, give-away, ...

Perhaps, "market place" would be better understood from all the people.

"Market Place" does it for me with maybe "All things Paso to Buy and Sell"

A couple of things that have been noticed on a couple of other forums though and that has caused a lot of complaints is that you also get a lot of new folk joining just to sell their goods to get a quick buck and then you find they vanish never to be seen again.

As you may know entering the word Paso in Google almost always brings this site out on top as the main reference - even ahed of ebay which means if they are looking to flog stuff it's here they will try first.

At least the community & enthusiast get the parts.... :wink: :)


"Market Place - All things Paso to Buy and Sell!" maybe the best?
