Location and prices should be included. Its annoying when you are interested in something but dont know what the prices or location are.

What I hate is all the people trying to get free snakes by saying "I will take in unwanted animals" plz... sure theres some who want to be nice but the majority of these people just want free snakes. I mean sure if somone in my area was getting rid of snake by tossing it into a field I would take it in but come on...

I agree with the price and location being mandatory, as I've been very interested in some things, email the person and find out they are in the middle of nowhere, and it's going to cost almost 3X the animals worth in shipping.. thanks for wasting my time, but I'll buy something a little different, from someone in the same province. (in the case of something like a beautiful $75 leo, or corn etc. where shipping would cost almost 2-3x that!

I also think that there should be a classifieds forum "Herps for Auction" as some people will always be wanting to not list a price, to see what they can get for it.

I also thing PMs should be removed from classifieds. If you don't have a real email address, you shouldn't be selling stuff. There are tons of free email address providers out there, use one!

As for the being able to reply to ads, that was done in the beginning and had to be removed due to childish stupidity and personal attacks on the sellers. (I known my username was used to lashed out on a seller a time or two.)

The classifieds have been cleaner and CLASSIFIEDS, not DISCUSSION FORUMS since the removal of replies.

I only meant to make replies available in the specially designated "waste of time ads" forum. Responding to these may cause the person who is attempting to sell to correct the problems with their ads. Any abuse they may get in the mean time they likely deserve.

As far as I'm concerned attempts to auction off animals fit into that classification because if you are serious about selling the animal you really should already know what it is worth. FOR SALE Ads should not be a vehicle for testing the waters when it comes to the value of the animals you have, look at what other people are charging if you want to know that.

Once you've figured out what it's worth set your price in the high if you are only willing to part with it for top dollar or set it low if you just want to move it out. It's as simple as that, yet I keep seeing the same animals advertised by the same people who are just "taking offers". These guys need their own little corner to sit in until they figure out this whole commerce thing and some replies to their incomplete sales pitches should force them to either make up their damn minds or slink away in shame, either way the classifieds would actually contain animals for sale instead of half thought out clutter.
I feel a little light headed... maybe you should drive...
