    As classified ads are now infinitely editable, we no longer allow users to delete their own ads. This benefits all users in that they can use the archived pricing history as a guideline, as well as not allowing users to try to hide suspicious activity by deleting their own thread. When you no longer wish to have your ad be active, simply open your thread, click Thread Tools, select Edit Title, select "No Longer Available" from the pull down menu, and click Save.

    Is there any way to close a classified thread other than marking it sold or "No longer available". How should you re-list an item that still has an open thread?

    You wouldn't relist it- you can edit your threads infinitely now, so you'd just edit the existing thread as you want and bump it.

    How does one delete replies by other members that may flame or hurt the chance of a sale? Sometime other members will even insert a trade offering with bad pics that also may deter a sale.

    You can't, if there's a post you have issue with, please report it and it will be reviewed by a moderator.

    Nowhere in the forums are you permitted to delete other people's posts. Users are allowed to respond to ads to make offers or ask questions, but negative comments or large distracting pictures can be removed by a moderator if you report their posts.
