    Not complaining or anything but just a suggestion. I am looking for a roommate when I attend AUC this fall. I posted a topic in AUC's forum concerning this and it was promptly moved to the apartment exchange forum. I completely understand this move and don't contradict it. However, some people, mainly rookies to the site don't scroll all the way to the bottom and look there for the roommates. They go to the AUC or whatever school site and add an aside to a post that they are looking for a roommate. Also, when looking at the apartment or for sale forums, a lot of people do not specify what school they are at. ex. I have a car for sale...well where is it for sale at. just a little frustrating since I am looking for an apartment, or house, and a car. I don't know what to suggest to alleviate this problem, just wanted to let you know about it.
    thanks

    I just hate stupid people. They should have to wear signs that say I'm stupid. That way, you wouldn't rely on them would you. You wouldn't ask them anything. It'd be like, "excuse me...oops, nevermind, I didn't see your sign."

    I agree, but as you said, there is not a good solution at the moment. When we upgrade our forums in the future, we should have subforums available which might help. But in the meantime, we are stuck using one shared Apartment Exchange forum and one shared Marketplace forum.

    I should mention that not all posts about housing are moved to the Apartment Exchange forum. For example, if a post is asking about general housing options, costs, etc, it is usually left alone. But if a post specifically promotes a particular place/roommate, etc, it is moved to the proper location.

    But it should be noted that the Moderators make an effort to leave a shadow in the original forums to make it easier for users to locate the posts, while at the same time the moved posts are technically located in the correct "Classifieds" section.
