Since it's been announced Ratsun is changing classified direction and format I decided to copy and save my old ads.
I'd highly recommend you do the following as well for when the old classifieds are made to walk the plank.
*(1) Go to your old for sale/wanted to buy/etc classified ads and save them to (2) different sources on your thumbdrive and or computer.
*(2) Continue to contact members from the old classifieds ads as well as new classifieds and PM/Message them since we're not able to respond or reply. At least until they are deleted.
*(3) Take time out of your day to PM a couple members about the new classifieds even if it's random
*(4) Familiarize your-self with the New Classifieds.
*(5) Re-post your classified(s) in small spurts (1-2 at a time maybe ?)
I have 25-30+ classifieds so I thought I'd post this for those who are more visual learners or simply don't know where to find them since questions and reply's to my old ads have ceased to exist.
It looks to be we're on a transition period for old and new classifieds.
Start by clicking on the "NEW" classifieds button located towards the top left hand of the screen.
The green arrows in the picture are pointing straight at it.
This is the screenshot you will see after clicking the button mentioned above.
^^^ referring and looking at the picture above.
There are now time-limits on the classified ads which seem to work out to 14-days until expired.
Notice on the top left hand side (orange square) highlighting the different categories to search in the classifieds.
Price shows up directly before clicking on the ad (circled in green and in green lettering).
Time left on the ad and views are counted on the right hand side of the screen.
If you wish to make a for-sale or wanted classified look to the top right corner of the screen and click "Add an Advert" (green arrows pointing towards the button in the picture above.)
After clicking the "Add an Advert" ..this screen pops up in front of you.
Add any pictures by upload or attach at this point if you wish (circled in black in the picture below).
You can also still drop photobucket photos in the main text body if you wish to do it that way ( I do this as well ).
In this case I choose the category "drivetrain" (edit: opps needs to be cooling ... )
Select a category by clicking you wish to post an ad on the bar that the green arrows are pointing towards , then click "continue" (circled in red).
This screen pops up next after clicking "continue"
scrolling down a bit further on the same screen shows this...
Now that you've reviewed the above 2 pictures (which we are still talking about)
Notice you can go back and change a category at this point if you wish (circled in green in pic above.)
Everything circled in green is an option = (exception "listing price" seen above in the picture)
Everything circled in red or orange is mandatory =
*State or Province
^^^ Once satisfied with any information , pictures , prices , contact information and everything seems correct after a double check click the "Add Advert" button.
This picture below is the resulting ad after you click "Add Advert" button.
Again talking about as well as referring to the above picture ^^^
The Title , Price and Time left are all circled in Green.
Just below those ^^^ Is a big red arrow pointing to 3 sub-categories on the left hand side
= (Overview , Additional info , Questions)
Overview = Description with pictures typically
Additional Info = Location and Country info,
Questions = Just that Questions... where you can ask them !
The orange circle indicates a "for sale" classified.
As you look to the top right corner of the screen notice the (3) options all circled in green to Edit an Advertisement , Close an Advertisement , or Watch an Advertisement.
Two green arrows pointing the right just below the (3) options discussed above allow you to see the sellers other items , and seller name history.
In the bottom right hand corner is the "report" button that is circled in green !
In this case I will be using this as I posted a cooling product that should be in the cooling category and not the drivetrain category.
Have fun and enjoy !
Hope I was clear enough on this
