Keep up the great work guys :)
I've mentioned trying to force a location for creating a thread in the buy/sell area and it's being looked into. Many folks have privacy concerns WRT this kind of policy though and are reluctant to include any information that might endanger their annonymity. We'll see what comes out of it.

I'll point this post out to our resident website guru to see what he thinks. Considering the amount of traffic our Buy&Sell threads get it's not that big of an issue (from a mod standpoint... I wouldn't be buying something sight unseen from any internet site). Most first time posters are very good about putting up images within the 24 hour warning period and all of the mods are on-side when it comes to either deleting within 24 hours, or getting a firm committment from posters if for some reason they need a little bit more time.
