Why are members leaving their SOLD ads up. Wouldn't it help others stay on the more recent pages if the sold guitar ads were taken down?

New items posted For Sale naturally float to the top of Page One.
Older/sold items provide good historical data for pricing, as they are searchable in the Forum database.

Easy to see the reasoning behind both points of view, but having the historical perspective on pricing wins the day for me.  And don't forget, in either case, you can always filter the results to include only ads withn a certain tine frame.javascript:void(0);

I'm with Queequeg.     I like the historical data.

Never thought of the historical perspective. I was only looking at the number of bumps and frequency. Thanks

Historical data is important but I've noticed a lot of advertisers remove the asking price and I'm sure that none of them post the final sales price. I suppose if you were really curious you could send a PM and ask the seller on a one-to-one basis.

Good idea to keep the history, though. Thanks for the clarification.

I prefer to clean up old adds.  This kind of historical data is more often not the best indicator of true value--especially over the last five years.

I know it is something I am guilty of failing to do, but it'd be nice if ads were marked SOLD or NO LONGER FS, or something.

Oops, so I have just publicly admitted to breaking the forum rules?  D'Oh!
