I agree with Blessed and Bettyfriend, but I would also prefer to see everything for sale. I never saw a poll or received any emails. I much prefer the previous Panjo style classifieds, except the payment, and Paypal part of it was confusing.

I also like scrolling through the stuff for sale WITH pictures. Going back to the old setup was a bad move. Why can't they eliminate the Panjo payment or paypal and go back to the original Panjo?

I didn't see anything either... No email or poll.. I liked Panjo as well...

Editing to add.. there was a problem with the "buy it now" option in Panjo.

How about a new classified tab to list all of the new items for sale items similar to the new posts tab?

First let me say that I also loved Panjo, but this new/old way isn't as bad as I originally thought. Just click on a category and hover your mouse over each photo and you can see a larger version of the photo. It's not Panjo but it isn't all that bad except for the slow loading pages.

I remember thread after thread of people asking the Admin to get rid of Panjo. I also remember seeing a poll as he mentioned. We got what the majority asked for. I'm sure the Admin put in a ton of work to bring this back to what you all asked for.

UPDATE:

After using the classifieds this morning for about 15 minutes I became frustrated with the categories. The reason being is the amount of time it takes to move from category to category because of slow loading pages (possibly the ads). I do not have trouble loading any other websites but this one so I'm pretty sure it is the site. Perhaps if everything was in one category at least we could scan the photos by holding our cursor over the picture and see it all before we commit to clicking. I find it very frustrating and slow this way.

Comments sounds like a big difference of opinion---Good thing someone can make a decision---unlike Washington! Not meant to be political comment.

Default Posted poll in GENERAL DISCUSSION AREA INSTEAD OF CLASSIFIEDS!!

Are you serious.............you posted information on the VOTING poll about Classifieds but put it in THE GENERAL DISCUSSION AREA?? Since it involved Classifieds, why didn't you post it in Classifieds? That is where all of us that were using Panjo spent the majority of our time. I seldom even scan New Messages, so I wouldn't have seen your emails to vote THERE. Seems you put it in the wrong place and most Panjo users didn't see it to vote! You say 80% of people wanted to leave Panjo. 80% of HOW MANY??? It would be interesting to know just how many people actually saw your poll and voted? Will you please disclose this information.

It seems that the main gripe of most people using Panjo was on the Pay Pal issue. Once I learned to click on 'collect payment myself', everything else was simple. I don't know why Panjo refused to just dump that PayPal stuff and get rid of the confusion and just let people collect payment themselves.

Anyway.....now I am now ONE UNHAPPY CAMPER AND FEEL LIKE WE HAVE GONE BACKWARDS FROM PANJO. If we have to settle for this format, PLEASE make some sensible changes. Also, what happened to the MARKETPLACE button, so we could see our own listings with one click, and make necessary changes. How in the heck do I see my listings now????
Wrong, just wrong!!!

So with all the negative comments about the old format being used and the positive comments of Panjo, is anything going to happen? Admin????

Maybe those sellers who are so unhappy and in distress over the change in format will consider doing something constructive about it and take their sales to a site like ebay or craig's list rather than bemoan and demean the efforts of our Admin to respond to the poll that was conducted?

I am in favour of Panjo....was surprised to see the "New"... not very friendly format for the Classified !!
My vote, if I had one, would be to return the Classified back using Panjo.

I never saw a posting or got an email about voting for or against Panjo. I vote to keep Panjo.

I never got an email.
Having things listed by category is nice, but the pictures are small.
Who decides what category a listing for sale is put?
I liked panjo and thought it was efficient.

Default loss of panjo

I sold and bought many items via Panjo. As a web designer in my prior career, Panjo was much more user friendly and easy to use. Please consider bringing it back.

Why should we have to go to Craigslist or E-bay when buying and selling stuff is offered of TOTV? No disrespect intended but I am just curious why you begrudge us using Classifieds on TOTV? You don't have to see the ads.....just click on 'Hide Classifieds'.
