    Post a link back to an expired ad??? My Imperial Parts ad from this week was deleted, as it had a link to the original ad (with pics!). Makes no sense.

    The ad is expired and closed. Make a new ad, not a link to the old one. Pretty simple really

    What's simple is to link to the old ad, since that information has not changed, AND it helps keep the server less busy. I do not understand your reasoning for posting a second complete ad. Again, it makes no sense. Pretty simple, really, right?

    First, it does nothing to help the server whatsoever.

    Second, I don't want posts with a link to another post.

    Third, the ad was closed due to 30 days of inactivity, which means that maybe, the old ad didn't attract enough attention to get sold so maybe you need to write a new ad, change the price, add some more photos, something.

    SO it makes plenty of sense.

    I'll disagree with you, and leave it at that.

    That doesn't matter in regards to ads.

    Agree, but that wasn't the issue Patrick mentioned.
