What about simple?

Gas Elec Spring

 

Then pistol, shotgun, smg, AR, DMR, sniper etc

 

Or is that how it is currently?

Personally I'd like to avoid too many categories. ZeroIn - if you ask me - has too many categories (certainly for the volume of listings we get here), and is akin to what you're saying.

Because I'm seeing shotguns and sniper rifles go in strange places (as suggested before by others as being a problem), but don't think that going all out SMGs, Rifles, Pistols, Support Weapons, Sniper Rifles, Other etc. is worth it.

I think shotguns should be their own category because you only get spring or gas powered.

 

My TM SGR-12 shotgun is an AEG, semi and full auto.

You've had to deal with this mess for a while, Jedi. What're you thinking? I know we hastily did the current ones so any tweaks?

 I get confused easily too, does that help?:)

 

Seriously, on iOS on my phone all the ads are cut on half in preview,  so it’s almost impossible to see what’s for sale. :(

I'll look into this. Are you able to drop me a screenshot here or in a PM?

The completed thing confused me too, as adverts state FOR SALE, but say completed.
With no mention of SOLD.
For example:

So does completed mean sold?

Well it means 'sold', but it also means 'found' or 'bought' (in the case of swaps or 'looking for gun' listings). In theory we could have one for each, but I feel that's unnecessary extra verbiage for a small amount of information. However, we could change the colour to grey or something for 'completed' listings so it's more obvious. We could also discuss the wording of 'completed' too so it's more obvious? Maybe 'closed'?

Psst, being able to set your listing under multiple categories, psst. ;)

 

Would make it a hell of a lot easier to decide where to put it!

I understand what you mean but probably not a good idea because it will get harder to spot those members who post duplicate topics (or worse those who attempt promoting their sale to the detriment of all the members who follow the rules).  Much simpler to just have a topic in a single category, sales topic if swap/sale, than spread all over.  The forum allows a single sales topic for collections, even though it would be more helpful to split sales topics into their own category.

Closed would be good.
AS would the removal of the " For Sale" in green - is there anyway to change that to closed/ended, once it's done?
Just something so that once a listing's over and you're scanning the classifieds, you know you can skip it...

Should be, yes. I'm going to tweak it a bit over the weekend.

 

Good to know. We assume in between diddling yourself you'll also be working on the classifieds as well? :wub:

Too many drill downs makes it unweildy.

 

Don't know about others, but sometime I search for an item rather than navigating so when you see the results list it is less obvious something is sold.

 

If the forum can't handle puttign Sold, maybe put sold diagonally accross the image when you are moving the entry?  Though depending on the number of sales, might become a full time job!

 

Cheers
