On various other forums I visit its their policy that you can only have 1 active for sale thread at a time. I really think this site should use this policy. This way if they are selling multiple items everything is in the same thread about whether or not items are actually being sent. Its dangerous allowing people to create as many for sale threads as they want because it creates a situation where there is many many pending transactions and several can get screwed by the same person. there is no communication between threads that a transaction is going bad from that person.

If they have multiple items in one thread the minute something starts going south everyone knows to avoid the rest of the items they have for sale.

just my opinion as it works really well on other forums.

Thanks for your suggestion.

Sometimes it's unavoidable to have several items posted by the same person in our BST forum. For example: A seller may want to post photos of their item(s) and as you can well imagine that takes considerable space. Posting those items in several separate threads may actually be more convenient not only for the seller but also for the potential buyer.

Again, thanks for your input.
