Market place posts

I have often come across many ads. / posts in the marketplace section for 'exactly what I needed' only to realise AFTER opening the post that it is at a far away location, and the trip makes the item uneconomical.

Would it not be better if ALL marketplace posts went something like " Baby Cot ....... @ location name" ? This way one could see at glance on the list page the location of the item available.

Re: Market place posts

Actually, it was already specified in the listing rules.

Quote:
Title

Make your title descriptive, short and to the point. It should conform to the following format:

[For Sale] Leather sofa [Basel]

[Wanted] Woman's bicycle [Geneva]

[For Sale] Household items, moving sale [Zurich]

Thread titles must include if the item is for sale or wanted, the name of the item and the location.

That's how it's supposed to be done. We usually point out these little inefficiencies but still, some of them manage to fall through the crack.
