The problem of wants is always an issue with forums and so often it's easy to forget that those wanting aren't usually the ones doing the doing. It's also true that often, those who benefit the most in a marketplace are content with doing the least to improve how it functions besides posting a reply to their Ad thread to get a bump.

Who benefits the most? Often the sellers because often they are selling more than a single item, once and moving on, they sell over and over, sell many items in single Ad threads and so on. They find willing buyers but really don't do too much to help buyers find those close by. The reason is simple, more buyers than sellers. It's not a supply and demand issue, its more like no one has to do anything so they don't.

Buyers could easily apply some influence to get what they want like the region of the seller etc. Simply don't bother with ads where sufficient information isn't available. Don't send a message asking, don't call, don't email, just don't bother. Sellers will find out real quick, as in days or weeks that their Ads wither on the vine. That doesn't happen because it means organization and coordination and when it comes to such things, the "I Got Mine" attitude shows up.

Its a good suggestion and it would de-clutter everything.

Making the assumption that members are too stupid to post in the right region is not the right thing to do. At the very least implement it for a month and assess it. It hardly takes any effort
Nor does it hardly take any effort to become a contributing member.

I've only been here for about a year and the layout works fine for me as well.

Make a marketplace for contributors only. That would solve all the problems.

The more "basic thing" is that it's worked well for 20 years.

Enjoy.

There is a market for contributors only, though it has only a fraction of the main MP ads, the bravo-sierra disappears.
