I must have been sleeping, was there an announcement/discussion about this new feature on the Forum?

I'm all for it, just didn't see it coming.

I'll say you and I must have been in the same zone because, NO, I did not see this announced. Now I enter right to the Forum and not through the home page of the SDC so maybe that is why??? I'll say this, when you see the volume of posts that occured in a short period of time it surely is an indicator that it was LONG overdue. So, to whomever brought it about I'm sure MANY are thankful.

You cannot see this sub-forum unless you are logged in. A bit of an annoyance IMO since I usually don't log in unless I want to post/reply.

I did noticed that a lot of forum post in the “general” section had been moved.
Now I know why and where.

There was a "Sticky" announcing this and describing it two days ago.

Thank you for noticing that Gary :) It’s an idea I’ve had for a while. I brought it up to Tom Curtis and Don Jones last week and they approved it!

We’ve had literally thousands of posts over the last 10 years, seeking and offering cars and parts, and from folks who’ve found cars listed online. Hopefully you’ll find this new board gives more visibility to those posts.

Cheers!

As Clark says, he asked us our opinion and we approved it. I have felt for a long time the For Sale/Buy cars ans oarts should be separated out. Now it's easy to hunt fir a car of your fancy or to sell one or look for those rare parts you might need. THANKS CLARK!!! Great job!.

It's an idea whose time has come! I was waiting a digital outlet for classifieds. Thanks, Clark!

I noticed the new header right away but didn't notice the sticky announcing it. Good idea, BTW. Over the years I have started to blur the stickies out as I scroll past them to get to the meat and potatoes... Is there a way to high-light new stickies so they stand out? Just a thought...

I can remain logged in if I don't log out as long as I don't close firefox. I have deliberately set things up to clear cookies and cache on closing for security reasons. I am one of those strange people w/o a cell or smart phone. Probably 2-5 times a year would be useful but no other need.

Unfortunately not, but they do show up in the "What's New?" listing like all the other new threads when they're posted. I also placed an Announcement banner at the top of all the pages, but not everything catches everyone's attention :)
