Why was my classified ad flagged?
Ads are flagged for a variety of reasons, most commonly for being similar to or a duplicate of an ad you already have posted. Feedback from our users has overwhelmingly indicated that they do not like seeing duplicate ads. Therefore, they are not allowed.
My classified ad’s status is “Pending”. What the heck does that mean?
Ads are available on the site immediately after posting, but will go through an approval process. It is during this process that the classified ad is in the “Pending” status. The process usually only takes a few minutes, and your classified ad is viewable during it. This process simply helps ensure the classified ad does not violate any of our terms of use, spam, etc guidelines. If the classified ad violates any of the guidelines, it is removed. If it is not in violation it will automatically be moved from the “Pending” status to the “Posted” status.
My classified ad’s status is “Waitin on you!”. Huh?
It is in the “Preview” mode. You just need to check out if all the information is correct and finish submitting it. Follow the instructions above for editing an ad.
