Can we have more descriptive thread titles in the classifieds?

    Hey, kind of a rant/pet peeve. I noticed a fair share of very poorly labeled FS: ads in the classifieds section regarding cars.

    Such as this:

    "1954 Chevy"

    Chevy what????

    half ton? couple? sedan? station wagon?

    I sure find it annoying that a person has to click on the ad just to find out what the heck they're talking about. Since its quite time consuming to scroll through & click on a barrage of vague ads, just to try to find what you're looking for.

    Is there anyway we can implement rules that people have to state what it is exactly that they're selling?

    I shutter at the day I'll see ads labeled:

    " FS: car, has doors and wheels. No idea what year/make, probably used to run at some point. Best offer pushes it home":rolleyes:

    No. There is no way to enforce such a rule without pissing a lot of people off.
