"Some ppl have already got the same ideas Firstly some simple, clear and concise categories. Searching options by date posted. and then an option for the seller to list the post thread as sold (once item /s re sold) which deletes the thread. ? "

Finally, the sport will be directed by a board of professionals, under a structure deemed Best Management Practice by the Australian government, and used with great success by sports and hobbies of all kinds across Australia.

Hey Col,


Love Kartbook, but just as a suggestion, would it be possible to add a date filter to the forum search. If you do a keyword search in the marketplace, results are not in date order.


Not a criticism, just a suggestion, as I say, I love kartbook, its one of my favourite sites.

Hello Col,

I'm afraid it is the same person...

Pleased that you say some things I wrote were useful for you, and hope I didn't lead you down to many long and winding dead ends.

I doubt I'll be getting into too many long (winded?) ediscussions, these days I'm too busy / tired most of the time.
