Site suggestion for Buy and Sell area

As I live in Canada, trying to find local buy and sell ads is sometimes difficult.
It might be easier if there were regional sections to localize the ads.
I'm sure the guys (and gals) in California aren't too interested in ads from Maine (or maybe they are )
Just a thought ...

That's probably the main reason why we always need locations in the thread titles. Having separate categories for different locations is better in certain ways but IMO it's better off the way it is because it's easier to navigate this way. Most sellers are willing to ship on here!

I think the way it is now (location in the title) is the way to go...Sort of takes care of both concerns.

Location in the title is enough. If people follow that.

Thanks for the suggestion. We do require the item location be put in the thread title. Have you tried doing a search based on location?

what if you had a separate field for location, then you could filter results based on location? like a radio button for either US, Canada, Mexico, or Other, and then a separate choice of "will ship" or local pickup only"

And if it were a required field it should remind them to also put a state/province.

I like the idea of a separate field.
The Site could then have an automatic sort based on that field.
The searcher can have it either way a list of everything (with the state in the title area) or any given state, just for the asking.
