    Honestly, I don't know what it would be called...but stuff moves off the first page in record time now due to the popularity. I am wondering if "other" needs a splitting off...or "parts". Gear...still moves pretty slow.

    Thoughts?

    We're open to hearing ideas, but we need to hear an idea first.

    The only thing I could think of is sub-sub-groups.

    For bikes, break it down into manufacturers: Honda, Yamaha, Suzuki, Kawasaki, KTM, BMW, Other, etcetera.

    Same with parts.

    Gear could be broken down into Helmets, Jackets, Gloves, Other.

    Just a suggestion. I personally think the Flea Market is fine the way it's set up now, but I can see how keeping items on the front page is a benefit for both buyers and sellers.

    Kick the idea around. Others might have a good reason it won't work.

    Just my two cents.

    Thanks for listening. All I can ask. Here is my concrete idea. Break out a category "electronics". That would take some from other and parts. That said...I love the flea market.

    Heck, I'm not even advocating adding new categories. It was just some quick thoughts on the OP's post.
