now its full of for sale stuff - any chance of for sale stuff NOT being in there?

NotQuiteCockney Tue 13-May-08 11:41:54

Oh, yes, please!

MissingMyHeels Tue 13-May-08 11:43:28

Me too, rarely bother now because of the sale stuff.

I rarely get a response back from the OPs when I answer their unanswereds. So now I think "fuck 'em". wink

Too many there.
So many 'for sale'.
Also, do they 'drop off' the unanswered list after a couple of days? Becuase if I post and no one answers I only check for replies by clicking 'threads I'm on' or 'threads I started' and they only go back a couple of days don't they...

If you goto customise talk board, you can change the number of days the 'threads i'm on' stays on for.

We'll look into this and come back to you.

Mikafan Tue 13-May-08 15:11:52

I've done this in the past too and had no response from OP so I stopped aswell

Just to let you know that we've been given the nod and techs will take the 'for sale' threads out of 'unanswered threads' over the next week or so. We'll let you know once they've gone.

Thanks rachel

Quick update - we're on the case with this but we have been reprimanded by tech(s) for saying 'in a week or so' cos it's more complicated job than we thought so bear with us - we haven't forgotten!

I have a genuine unanswered thread in there now - nothing to do with selling things (you can have my mil for free if you want! grin)

hint hint

I have also suggested this in the past. Glad it is being looked into.

I agree - I dont do the unanswered threads so often these days because of all the classifiedcluttering it up.

MamaG, you've just sent loads of people off to answer an hours-old question about pie crusts!

MamaG Wed 11-Jun-08 17:42:25

I'm special grin

RTKangaMummy Wed 11-Jun-08 17:47:22

They have gone

I think anyway


I can't see them {for sale} on mine this afternoon


MamaG Wed 11-Jun-08 17:47:56

The power of MamaG grin
