I'm not sure exactly where to put this thread, but the Town Square seems as good a place as any. I've noticed when browsing the trade section on the forum that a lot of people put their items for sale up as images, same with the auctions. I've missed a lot of ads when using the search function because of this since images won't show up in text searches. There are other things to think about as well when making threads more visible, which saves me time so I can be lazy \0/ Yay? Some general pointers to make your posts easier to find in searches Take the time to post the info about the items in text in your post. A picture of them might be good as a quick overview, but it won't show up in a forum searchChoose a descriptive "Topic Title". Compare "Selling stuff" with "Selling carpentry, bs and more"Make use of the "Topic Tags" that appear under the "Topic Title". Carefully choose the 10 words that you think people are likely to use when looking for the item you're selling. Separate different words with a commaPut the most important tag first in the list for a good overview when browsing the threads in the forum since all might not fit on the lineDouble-check your spelling. If you write "pcikaxe" instead of "pickaxe" your thread won't show up in a search for "pickaxe"Try to avoid making a combined "Want to buy" and "Want to sell" thread since that can only go in either the WTB section or the WTS section and it's possible to use search words in specific parts of the forum. If I search for an item for sale in the WTS section but you put it in a combined thread in the WTB section my forum specific search won't find it
