    I find it useful to review the archives to see what a particular make/model has sold for in the past. It'd be nice if members didn't erase everything in their ads upon sale, but rather indicated what a gun sold for. Putting "sold" on the ad and closing the thread helps against members who occasionally try to bring a thread back from the dead (not that I've ever done that ;) ).

    all that does is to archive the asking price and that the FS has closed

    Many members are not comfortable with an easy-access searchable public record of what they've sold and how much they sold it for.

    Bingo. I wipe all my classifieds clean and lock the thread after it's sold.

    I agree with you - it is useful to review past transactions; I like to be able to see what the same/similar model firearm has sold for prior. I think some members erase everything so there is no 'record' of the sale - just a guess.

    I also don't understand why some refuse to answer questions in a thread. Many times things are asked - barrel length, trigger details, scope specifics, etc., etc - things not in the original ad - and the questions are answered via PM.

    If it's worth answering, it's worth answering in the thread in which the question was asked. I have seen several threads where folks ask similar questions, which would be avoided if responses were in the original thread.

    I don't get it.

    I agree 100%. Some get bent out of shape for questions in the thread. I don't get it, either.
