    Could this be organized like the index so it would have smaller catagories ? Just a thought

    We're open to suggestions! Which categories would you like to see? How would you like the organization to be?

    All the same categories for birds would be nice, and then one for bird supplies, one for other animals, and one for roos only!! I think if we had a list of roos wanted it'd make many of us soooooooooooooooooooooo happy!

    (from a selling member's standpoint)
    Less is more.

    Maybe
    Birds
    Eggs
    Chicken related (supplies etc)
    Everything else (handcraft, dogs, labels)

    Any more categorizing, Rob may as well have a stand alone auction/selling site because the main index page will be a mile long.

    Quote:This absolutely epitomizes the reasons why I feel there needs to be a separate index page just for auctions and a little button at the top on the NavBar next to Logout (or somesuch) for 'AUCTIONS,' for those of us who shop, which will take us to the Auctions Index. I want it RIGHT THERE and don't want to go to the index page I NEVER visit unless I'm shopping- and then I have to scroll down, la, la, la, Yada, yada. I hate that. I don't want to scroll through the index. I never go there otherwise. This is my main complaint with auctions here.

    I think many folks only use the 'recent posts' and 'my posts,' for the most part, unless posting. This is what I hear, anyway. I would love to keep moving that way, instead of having to navigate out of what acts as my home page when I'm here. For that matter, I want a 'My posts' button on that bar. I hate scrolling to the bottom of the 'recent posts' page to find it, just to return to a conversation I was having.

    Do other people navigate differently here?

    I like the idea of using a seperate index just for all auctions...

    The wanted to buys could be as following :

    Eggs
    Chicks and Chickens
    Chicken related (supplies, egg labels, diapers, harnesses, etc)
    Roosters
    Other birds and animals
    Anything Else
