I've been looking for a specific bow and accessory, but have noticed a ton of threads still open/listed even though the item has been sold. Why aren't they deleted so people don't waste their time on a unavailable item?

They never get deleted. Mods don't have time to go delete threads, they don't get paid you know. I do wish more would just close the thread after the sale done.

That's what there suppose to do.

They should be "locked" by the OP. If the OP does so, the icon to the side of the thread illustrates that is has been locked for all to see quickly. If he hasn't then he can't follow simple rules.

I'm glad the sold items are still visible. It gives me a little market research on going rates for things when i start shopping.

Because they grab the money, and leave the thread open. I always close my threads, after adding feedback...but then again, some don't leave feedback either :)

Thats one good reason to leave them around, letting others know what items sell for. I agree using the locked would be a great way to identify the item is gone, then you can open only if you want to.

Help clean up the classifieds. Click on the "report thread" icon and help a mod out. Can't blame it on the new members either, tons of folks that have been here for a few years are just as bad and should know the rules by now. Laaaaaaaaaaaaaaazzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzyyyyyyyyyy.:darkbeer:

I don't mind seeing all the closed threads, gives you a good idea on what people are buying, but can be annoying I guess. A tick bow to exclude closed threads in a search might be handy if it could be implemented.

I aint saying A/T is perfect by any stretch, but where else can you go and shop for used and new archery equipment? No one comes close. Not even ebay!

Yea that sucks. Seems like, AT, should be able to delete them if there has been no posts in a specific time frame.

Absolutely! It would be terrible to have the closed threads disappear. If they did, can you imagine how many threads would show up saying, "How much should I sell my _______ for?"
