When should old Reserved or Expired marketplace ads be removed? It has been brought to my attention that the marketplace is absolutely littered with old ads that went as far back as 2011. We (I) can clean these up and make the listings much more accurate.

Can you get rid of the reserved thing? The problem being even if you have a question you have to "reserve " it thus locking the thread. Very un-user friendly.
I would love to. I don't have that ability, and the only one who might hasn't been heard from in over a year.

When the seller creates the ad there is an option called "Reserve on Buy?" that controls the reserved thing. It defaults to Yes. Any way to change the default to No? That would solve that problem.

Here is my $0.02:

I like the idea of a history, whether sold or not, of the items on Marketplace. The history helps someone determine a fair price to list or to pay for something. That's not to say things should remain from 2011 but it does mean a year or two would be helpful (at least to me.)

Unfortunately, those options (if they even exist) are not available to me. I would love to be able to enable that, though.

Delete everything. Start over. Then maintain once a month clear out anything sold or reserved.
If the seller wants to relist the item that is on them.

I could do that, sure, but that also is a one-by-one ordeal. I have no access to any sort of bulk action tools. There is most likely nothing of the sort.

Poll closed. The 1-month option received almost 1/2 the votes, putting it far in 1st place. Marketplace ads will now be deavtivated after one month. All current ads older than one month are in the process of being deactivated.

Since it's such a high paying job you should accede to everyone's wishes immediately, if not sooner!
Once again. thanks for keeping this thing running. I belong to several motorcycle forums and this is the best of the lot.
