5 minutes does make sense. 1 hour would also make sense. I suppose it's more specific to classifieds, let's say I have a list of 1-10, or 20-30 items, and I've only listed a couple or one part on the thread title. It's been a week or so, I've sold those couple items, and now the thread title is not indicative of it's contents. Or I'm wrenching on the bike, swapping parts, taking photos, sipping on a few cold ones, start a parts thread, add the description, parts photos, make said post. And then, come to realize, several of the parts haven't been removed from the bike, nor described in the parts list or title. But, it's been well over 5 minutes, let alone an hour.
Would it be possible to allow for sale thread titles to be modified indefinitely? That way, when parts are sold or the available parts list has changed considerably or all are sold, the title could be updated in the thread list. For instance, all parts are sold, the member who started the thread could add [SOLD] at the beginning of the title, members could navigate a little more efficiently, and deleting stale threads could be slightly more streamlined. Just my .02¢
Life ceases to have meaning if not in the pursuit of passion.
