i hope you can help.
i am glad to have found this site - thank you for your work.
There are many ‘open’ ads which are really not ‘open’. I have found this time consuming and exasperating contacting sellers who don’t reply or if they do, I find dogs are sold -
this is due to ads not being closed or updated by the seller.
after a reasonable period? the ads need to be closed automatically I suggest, I see many ads are remaining open for over a year. To help people genuinely looking to give dogs good homes, searching through many many ads, contacting sellers who will never reply is a deflating time consuming experience.
May I suggest a filter for only ‘open’ads and exclude ‘sold’ - currently we can’t exclude ‘Sold’ or ads, for example, older than 6 months.
sellers need to know that if they don’t update their ads, their ads are closed automatically or even better, deleted. This would encourage sellers to actively manage their ads. it would also really help those seeking a dog and keep courteous up to date ad owner front and centre, getting the focus they deserve.
Thank you very much.
