I have to say, I like the old one better. Now, I can't see the updates. I want to know what my sellers are selling! ARH

Not really a problem. Updates would appear directly in the op.

I think every one was getting a bit tired of all the off topic bumps which really had nothing todo with the sales themselves. Honestly, I like reading what the op has to post, and not have to read through all the nonsense from everyone else.

If you don't like the new sns format, let the mods know. If you have something specific to raise regarding a sns offering, pm the seller. Couldn't be more obvious thuan that. I find it's a step in the right direction.

Meh I find that other peoples post are usually interesting and often answer Faq's. But I guess its all personal preference.

I agree sometime useless bumps are annoying

I agree. This new format makes it much less personable. People are prone to chat, why not let them chat? If i just want to place an order, i'll visit gla or the like.

Chatting causes bumping of threads which causes other more "silent" threads to be bumped off the first few pages. This causes people to complain....

You can still edit your OP for 10 days then your OP is locked and you can't edit anymore. Besides, what's a few extra PM's gonna do to you?...

People are going to complain no matter what. I know that i, personally, haven't even bothered with the sns since it's change.
And few extra pm's are no biggie if you have nothing better to do than this, but for those of us who work multiple jobs or who are just very busy, it can be a huge headache.

Well apparently enough people complained long enough to convince the mods/Kyle to make the change.

For those to are busier than the rest of us on this forum generally wouldn't keep many tanks in the first place, thus lowering their presence in the SnS, lowering the amount of PM's they'd get from sales.
