RCGroups is looking better all the time with these new changes. This appears not as easy to sell any more. Getting rid of our rating is also a big negative.

I say give them a chance to fix stuff with the understabding they that if they dont taylor to the masses then everyone leaves. Let the voices be heard. Im sick of companies doing crap and not listening to those that help make it.

We are already working based off this feedback thank you.

Hmm... can you try again? I have not heard any issues and we have a lot of ads posted today on the new format.

If it happens again, let us know your device and browser type, and if you're using the mobile skin or desktop.

Been buying and selling on RCU since 2002.....500+ positive ratings.....have never had a problem with the way classifieds were setup......am I to understand all the 'old' ratings will 'DISAPPEAR' when the old site goes away?

So the reply button is really just a reply button, we can not make offers like before. No invoices or any thing like the previous way?

These changes are just a total joke. Above and beyond most of the comments already made; seller feedback scores are a MUST. When the seller joined the forum is a MUST. With all the fraud that's been going on here with bogus sellers and you take away our tools to help spot them? What's the matter with you people?

Dumping all our seller feedback ratings is a crock as well, what do you mean "we're trying to save them"?
Where are the "offers made" and whether they were accepted or refused?
Where is the "Wishlist"?
Where is the "book values" section?

If there are not any changes made to the above issues, I damn sure won't be buying, selling or advertising here again.,

The new marketplace is just plain awful. No specific filters, no seller/buyer ratings, no joined date on the account. Yeah.. I'm done with RCU.

Mods,

Please understand and that you have destroyed the basic premise of the old marketplace. The checks and balances are gone here. The offer and invoicing are gone. Worst of all, the subcategories are gone. Please don't try to fix this new one. Just dump it and bring back the old marketplace. Nobody asked for this, and you are not doing anyone any favors.

Every year when it comes due, RCU doesn't let me post a new ad, until I redeposit another $10. Been a member since 2002. So, really isn't free. I never have anything deducted from the $10 when advertising and using the FREE enhancements. I NEVER use the enhancements that cost money, only the FREE ones. Yet, RCU keeps the $10 deposit.
Quote from RCU:

As a PayPal paying member, you will be permitted to post any type of ad without enhancements, until you deposit funds as described below, after which you may post ads with enhancements.

We strongly recommend that you deposit $10 - $50 so you may take advantage of ad enhancements such as featured and home page placements, ad boosts, extra photos & categories etc. You will not be able to select any enhancements for your ads without a minimum deposit balance of $10.00. You will not be able to select home page placement for your ad without a minimum deposit of $35.00. We cannot refund any deposits.
MINIMUM DEPOSIT IS $10.00

O K.........I See......However the Question remains: ....What happens if you have a 40.00 deposit posted to the old RCU site? Does the Tooth Fairy Get that ? RCU should at least allow a transfer of the users account Balance after all RCU will wind up getting it ....one way or another...

I agree with the previous remarks............You had the best marketplace around, why change it.
You need to keep separate categories. No one wants to go thru ALL airplane listings or to have to constantly use the search.
People have put a lot of time and effort into maintaining a positive rating profile (I know I have).

Hello,
When you pull up someone's ad, where do you find if they will ship the item or not? It would show up on the old RC Universe.
Thanks,
Mike
