New Guidelines for Classified Ads

May 18, 2015

The classified ad page of this website is a simple venue that allows SVMGA members to offer goat- and sheep-related items for sale to other members and the public.  Items are posted in the order in which they are received, with the most recent posts at the top.  It has always been the responsibility of the post’s creator to notify the webmaster when the post should be deleted.  However, this has not been happening.

In an effort to make the classified page of the website more relevant, several new guidelines will go into effect immediately:

  • All classified ad posts will include a “Posted on:” date, so viewers will know how current the ad is.
  • The webmaster will regularly review the classified ad page and automatically remove ads older than 60 days.
  • An ad may be deleted earlier at the request of the post’s creator, or it can be extended for a specific period of time.
  • Persons submitting an ad for the classified page are encouraged to include one photo.  Photos sell.

As always, the webmaster welcomes comments and suggestions on this matter.
