There are quite a few ads, some as OLD as 2011, that are indicated as SOLD.
Shouldn't the SELLERS take these down ?

They should but they don't. Some only join to sell something and never come back after it is sold. The mods could do it but it is a time consuming task for somebody to go through them all one by one and they have better things to do than that I am sure. :laugh2:

Perhaps the answer is that all ads are automatically deleted after a certain time span and if the article is still for sale then the ad has to be re-submitted.

Coops.

Should be automaticlaly gone after 45 days I believe, and I have been deleting several lately as well.

Are you talking about the ads in the Canadian Flea Market? If not, do you have a link for an old ad in the Marketplace? That shouldn't be possible. They are supposed to go invisible after 45 days and I delete ads that old the first of every month.

Original Posters........

I believe (??) after a certain time period (or, number of posts after the original ad posts) that SELLERS do not have the option for Deletion (i.e. Edit) of their own posts........that's why you continue to see the same older ad up. Greywolf/Big B will clarify that shortly. Typically, when my item sells, I will use the "Report Post" (black triangle in lower left corner) and ask the Mods to delete my ad.......hope this method is Kosher, Mods...??? :confused:

I'm okay with reporting a post to get an ad for a sold item deleted. It's the easiest way I can think of for all concerned.

OLLLD ADS

Now this is ODD...On my laptop, this thread has 7 pages and goes back about 45 days to the oldest post..I guess beyond that, they are auto deleted but,

on my Tablet, at
For Suzuki V-Strom Enthusiasts /sale/index7.html

there are 17 pages and on page 14, there is a SOLD ad for a helmet posted in 2014

For Suzuki V-Strom Enthusiasts

and others from 2011 SOLD, SOLD SOLD on pages 15/17 16/17 17/17

None of that comes up on my laptop..hmm

Both of those links bring me to a list of most popular discussions. I wonder if you're seeing archived pages that were saved on your tablet and brought up if the if the actual page can't be found.

No, none of the OLD posts come up on the laptop..ONLY on the tablet..the LINKS that go to the old ads on the tablet work fine there but can't be recreated on the laptop. I'll just stick to the LAPTOP version when I want to go SHOPPING.

Hey Grey,
Cleared CACHE and HISTORY on tablet, did a restart and the 17 pages of OLD (p.14-17) ads still come up on the TAB..No worries...Laptop version shopping works fine.

It is all in how you have the search criteria and pages viewed set up, mine only shows 4 pages which is typically only a few months back at most. We spend time in that section deleting sold posts even if we are not notified, and anything after 45 days is simply archived. Go to page 9 and look at everything beyond that, all has been deleted.
