I wish guys would start a new thread when they have new stuff for sale. I've missed out on a couple of killer deals because I didn't recheck the thread right away, besides it would help keep the comments limited to the items currently for sale and make it a lot easier to see something that you are interested in.

I've seen a few people make new threads for new items only to be scolded for not using their original thread. This I think is stupid. There should be no reason to re-use an old thread, full of old comments for sold items.

The problem with creating new threads for new gear is that some folks move a hell of a lot of used gear here... can you imagine if a person had 4 threads with current gear, and they bumped them the allowable 2 times per day? How about 4 folks doing that? Pretty soon the "current" threads would stretch out over several screen pages.

At least the items that were for sale would be in the titles and we'd all know what was still for sale without having to open each and every FS/WTB/WTT thread and dig through 10 pages of comments hoping to see info on the one item we might want to buy.
