    Erin,

    Can we do a "looking for" type of ad?

    Was there a decision about "wanted" ads?

    Yes, there will be wanted ads... I just need to change the online info and get PayPal set up for it. Give me another day or two. http://chronicleforums.com/groupee_c...icon_smile.gif

    OK, PayPal form is revised... "wanted" ads will be $10. http://chronicleforums.com/groupee_c...icon_smile.gif

    Usually "wanted" ads are free. I think this is a little over the top to charge for this service.

    My humble opinion, feel free to flame.

    I do have to agree with shadytrake. It's IMHO that you should have a free ad period for a month or so to attract customers... once they see how well it is working they will be more willing to submit ads.

    I don't check the classifieds very often because there aren't many ads being posted.

    I agree with shadytrake and dressager because it doesn't seem like a lot of people are posting for sale items or wanted items... maybe it's because they don't want to spend that much when other places are free of charge. Just my opinion!

    chant with me! free want adds.......

    i think if people arent paying for for sale adds, at least want adds will increase activity and bring people to look at this forum....just my humble opinion though http://chronicleforums.com/groupee_c...icon_smile.gif

    So if the want ads will be free, can we sell something under them saying, "Wanted: someone to buy my such and such, etc."

    I'd think that's the loop hole in the free want ads, and I think that's why they are still going to be $10.
