Idea for the 'For sale and Wanted' forum..

I've noticed that there are a lot of 'completed' threads in the For sale and Wanted forum that don't get archived. This isn't a complaint, just a suggestion for keeping the forum tidy and to save the Mods some time...

How about once a thread is complete, ie; the goods have been paid for and dispatched/collected, the thread starter 'Reports' the final post to bring it to a Mods attention for moving to the archive?

This would save everyone needlessly browsing threads where there is nothing left to buy, especially Mods, who I assume have to keep checking all threads to see if they're complete and ready for moving.

Just a thought

Some people already do, which is great.

The report button is the best way to bring our attention to a thread for whatever reason, so please do this.
