Do I have to use my real name when posting a message?

No. Even if you use your real name when you register (and we encourage that), you do not have to use your real name when you post an ad. The script will simply publish whatever you put in the first and last name fields. If you feel more comfortable, you can use a nickname or pseudoname.

Can I put HTML tags anywhere in my posts?

No. You can not use HTML tags in the body of the message. If you put HTML tags in your message, the script will just throw out everything in between the <>'s. You do have the option, however, of putting a link to a picture of something if you have posted it somewhere else on the Web.

What should I put in the "Text of Ad" box?

Please describe the item that you are trying to sell in as much detail as you can. If you're posting a photo ad advertising a car, tell people about the year, make, model, number of miles, options, etc. If you're posting a photo ad advertising a piece of real estate for sale or for rent, tell them about the number of bedrooms, bathrooms, and other rooms; about the amenities; etc. If you're announcing a garage sale, be sure to tell readers the exact time and location of the garage sale and describe some of the items that will be available. For personal ads, tell people what you look like, what you do for a living, what your hobbies and interests are, where you're from, etc. Also, don't be afraid to say what you're looking for both in terms of physical or personality traits and in terms of the relationship. If you want someone who is a specific age or looks a certain way or has certain political or recreational interests, say so! Being honest about both what you're really like and what you really want will help to avoid misunderstandings in the future. If you're posting a help wanted ad, tell people about the type of work, what skills, education, or experience is required, what the rate of pay is, the geographic location of the job, and any other information relevant to this particular position. If you're posting an employment wanted ad, tell potential employers about the type of work you desire, your skills, education, and experience, what salary level you are seeking, what geographic areas you would prefer to work in, and any other relevant information about yourself.

Why didn't my photo ad show up?

Your photo ad most likely did not show up because either you were in the wrong category (such as "Housing" instead of "Personals") or you specified search criteria that don't appear in your ad. If so, please verify that you selected the correct category and then broaden your search by leaving more of the search fields blank.

How do I modify my ad?

At the bottom of every page you will find the "Modify Ad" button. If you click on this button, you will see a search form. The form will ask for the ad number and the password that you entered with this ad. Once you have entered these, click on the "Search for Item to Modify" button. If you entered the correct information, your ad will be displayed with a modification form beneath it. The current information from your ad will already be filled in, so you only need to modify the fields that you want to change. Once you have filled in the form, click on the "Submit Modification(s)" button. You should then see an acknowledgement page if your ad was successfully modified.

How do I remove my ad?

At the bottom of every page you will find the "Delete Ad" button. If you click on this button, you will see a search form. The form will ask for the ad number and the password that you entered with this ad. Once you have entered these, click on the "Search for Item to Delete" button. Narrow your search by filling in the fields with information specific to your ad (such as your last name, etc.) and click on the "Search for Item to Delete" button. If you entered the correct information, your ad will be displayed with a warning beneath it indicating that you are about to delete it. If you are sure that you want to delete this ad, click on the "Delete This Ad" button. You should then see an acknowledgement page if your ad was successfully deleted.
