    It would be really nice if one day we could have state categories to put our ads under. I keeping seeing all the great chicken deals, salivating , then finding out they are in a different state, or missing the great deals near me because I thought it was some where else. [​IMG]

    Good idea, it would even be better if sale items were broken down into regions.

    It would really be helpful if folks would include a descriptive title with the state abbreviation so everyone knows what they have or are looking for easily. For example:

    Poor title:
    For sale: Blue chicks

    Good title:
    For sale: Blue Cochin chicks PA will ship

    Poor title:

    Good title:
    Wanted: RIR hens in San Francisco, CA...local pickup

    Except that people need to include the entire name of the state instead of the abbreviation b/c it won't let you search for the abbreviation. At least it didn't last time I tried it.

    Would be great to do the state thing, a few of us have tried to put headings like ohio here, or indiana here, texas here to get it started.
    Just doesn't catch on or stay together long enough.
    Maybe the powers that be can gt this done and see how it goes?

    It's true you need more than two letters to search on. We had to do this on another forum we're on, they split the Buy/Sell/Trade forum into states, it made it much easier to navigate. It was hard to separate the active threads into states, but once done, it's worked out well. The older, already completed threads were put into their own category and locked. I know it would be tough to do, but it would be so helpful for both the buyers and the sellers.
