    There's a yellow banner at the top of every classified ad that tells you how to lock it.

    You're right, totally excessive. That would count as disruptive to the forum.

    Please report it next time you see it. There aren't enough moderators to check every thread.

    Call me stupid, but I don't see any yellow banner. Screenshot attached.

    The yellow banner has a little box at the right side, like other system notifications, that will dismiss/disable it.

    I don't know if that is thread-specific or a general preference setting.

    goto your classified "For Sale" posting,
    in the top right corner, click the drop down menu button labelled "Administrative"
    The radio button "Close Thread" should already be selected
    click "proceed".

    This administrative menu only appears on for sale threads that you have started.

    All done.

    But that's the thing: I don't have an Administrative button. See screenshot of my ad.

    Another forum I participate on only lets you post the ad, edit the original and close the ad - no bumping allowed, all discussions are to be done via PM's. I too don't like the over bumping.

    Also, maybe we should have another sub section for 'ConUS only' sales....... hat, coat, I'm outta 'ere....

    Maybe there's a time limit. Sean should know.

    Hmmm....I give. No idea. As David said, perhaps, Sean knows?

    I've attached a screenshot of one of my classified postings for reference. The administrative button is right there next to the thread tools button...and, yeah, I see that the administrative button is missing on your screen shot.
