I have noticed that alot of for-sale posts have sold but are never marked SOLD! This wastes the valuable time of many RCU users!
Please mark your post SOLD so that RCU users don't waste time looking at items that have already sold.

I thank you in advance!

Regards,
Bryan

I totaly agree with Orbitter on this.
I have been down that road many times. Click on a for sale ad and find out that it has been sold. Heck sometimes I read down a big list of replys to a post and when I get to the end I still don't know if it has been sold or not!

Bryan is right, and it only takes a second to close an ad. When an ad is posted in Swap Shop there should be some red text under the title of the ad that reads:

(When item is sold click here to close YOUR ad & lock this thread)

This red colored text is only visible to the person that posted the ad and it is only visible when the person who made the post is logged in. All you have to do to close the ad and mark the item sold is click on the underlined word "here."

As Bryan mentioned closing the ad saves shoppers time by letting them know the item is no longer available.

I agree too. In fact, I forgot to update a post myself and had some other replies.

Lesson learned.

Soetimes it takes a while (weeks) because people are jacking everyone around and dont know what is going on. A few weeks ago, this one clown put in an offer on 3 Saitos at the same time. What can i do. Nothing! it creates a problem for both a buyer and seller.
