It's easy to reference a post in the other thread. Just click the post number in the upper right of the post, which opens it in a new window. Copy the URL out of your address bar and drop it into the post in this thread.

I tried that. I got a URL but I would like the post I am referencing to be quoted. I have done this by typing in the [Quote] stuff manually but maybe there's an easier way.

P.S. If the price on this drops a few $k I will be very, very tempted. Not that it isn't fairly priced, just out of my price range.

How do you direct all interested parties to your new post in the discussion thread? Easy enough to PM the person you are replying to and give a url to the new discussion post, but what about interested lurkers?

Methinks you need to do at least one very concise post in the FM thread referencing the post in the Discussion thread. Then the discussion can go from there and anyone interested can join in.

So you might reply to a FM post with: "I've opened a discussion on this here___________" or perhaps: "I've made some comments on this here ______________".

Nice and short to minimize the clutter factor and sufficient to create a fork in the thread with the comments and discussion taking the 'Dicussion' road.

OK, that'll work. Thanks Brocktoon.

you can link them with the quote function described right above your post. When you click the arrow next to the quote, you jump right over to the other thread.

mm..I don't get it.

Joe posts a helmet for sale in flea market.

Kyle wants to comment that he really likes that particular model and the price is outstanding. So kyle post up in the Discussion thread.

How does anybody watching the flea market thread know about Kyles post in Discussion?

Seems kinda like these "lookee the craigslist fool" threads. The posters on craigslist has no idea these conversations are going on behind their backs (for better or worse)

Put a link to the discussion post in the ad. Not hard. If I was selling something, I'd link it from both ends. If someone's reading the FM, they'll see the link to the discussion and if there's a link to the discussion in the ad, folks can jump over and talk about it.

The problem is that folks were basically using the FM as a place to talk about parts and other random crap that made it hard to actually read the ads. In some places, there are ads that are buried in a long stream of discussion or there are pages of discussion with no ads.

If I get a chance this weekend, I'll post up a how to do it thread so everyone knows how to link the two together.

Yeah, it's going to be a couple extra steps, but man, oh man, as it was the FM was a total off topic mess.

I belong to Rangefinderforum.com and they have what I think is the best classifieds section I have seen on any forum. http://www.rangefinderforum.com/phot...ndex.php?cat=1

I don't know if we could do something like that here but it cuts down on the idle chit chat and makes it easier for interested parties to see and find items of interest.

just my $0.02

Here's an option:

Use the Flea Mkt as...a Flea Mkt,i.e; for sale, want to trade, wanted to buy.

No thoughts,feelings or opinions necessary all the time, constantly. Yeah, this requires an inner filter.

For more info see also the General Flea Mkt where the aforementioned crap gets kicked to head explody,pronto.

Believe me, "Joe" will be on board.

I couldn't be a moderator.

Thanks for your effort.

Is there any way change the Flea Market to automatically delete posts, after say, a week? That would keep the thread fairly free of clutter from WTB posts and old posts that have since sold.

Just a thought.

A good thought, but not that I'm aware of.

Since this runs on MySQL, this may bear some investigation.

Thanks, BT.

And hey! The Flea Market thread is actually useful again!

Thanks for helping, everyone.
