What is the current status of the Classifieds section?
How often are they refreshed? (Rules says 30 days but was last edited in Year 11)
Why is there a no 'want to buy' rule? That is part of pretty much every classified section I've ever read.
I put the No WTB rule in place to keep it manageable back when they did work, because prior to that they were being absolutely flooded with "WTB A-Wing, I have 10000 credits" type postings by every other brand new player, where they vastly outnumbered the WTS ads. The Classifieds were far more commonly used by new players than the Commerce forums .. which made them fantastic for faction recruitment, and kept the Commerce forums capable of handling WTB postings, since they very rarely receive new players making unreasonable requests.
Not that this is the suggestions forum, but I definitely disagree. Years ago, the Classifieds were highly useful. While I ran a ship faction, I recruited solely through the Classifieds and it was quite effective; many of those members are still active today.
They are useless at this time, but perhaps they will be fixed at some point. If not, obviously they serve no purpose.
