Re: Classifieds Broken For 7 Months

If AutoGuide doesn't make an acceptable profit running their sites, they will gradually choke them out of existence, by not supporting them. Sound familiar?
This site is living on borrowed time so enjoy it while you can.

Did AutoGuide communicate this to you?

No, do you have an example?

Re: Classifieds Broken For 7 Months

I was the Admin to another big site, one that had a thriving membership. Vertical Scope bought the site and initially, they were an asset. That is, until they started ignoring site needs. Once that happened, we started seeing the same kind of issues TC is having. I resigned my position a few months later and that site is now defunct.
History seems to be repeating itself, here.

Re: Classifieds Broken For 7 Months

From the looks of the AutoGuide website, their interest is in marketing. Their purpose seems to be revenue from advertising. They donít benefit from forum members classifieds, thus crickets. As big as they are, they would need a business plan to address any issue we feel is important to our forumís survival. Kind of like the VA caring for our veterans.

Re: Classifieds Broken For 7 Months

It's a good thing this thread got moved to a dark corner of TC where it's more easily ignored and overlooked. There's nothing to see here folks.

Re: Classifieds Broken For 7 Months

The reason it was moved here is that AG/VS does check this forum for issues.
You might notice their occasional response to threads in this forum.
It's about the only forum they do monitor.

Re: Classifieds Broken For 7 Months

Hi all,

We understand the frustration with the classified section.
I looked into this and it was indeed escalated.
Once the techs have a chance to figure out the issue on this, we will give you a heads up here.

We're very sorry for the inconvenience,

Ed

Re: Classifieds Broken For 7 Months

Having a time limit sounds like a good idea among others I miss the days when I could find anything in the classifieds Now you click on a part and find it's been on there a couple years. Is there any favorite parts places besides ebay ?

Hi all,

Unfortunately, no news yet but going to get some traction on this.
I have added this to our escalation sheet.
Please standby for updates.

Very sorry for the inconvenience,
