We need to keep all the classifieds (both for sale and want to buy requests) in the classified forums for a couple of important reasons. Any for sale posts in the regional forums are deleted or closed without notification to the member.

It's often not apparent to our members, but the moderator team does pretty very heavily monitor the classified forums on Club Lexus. We've got extensive classifeds-specific rules (link here) developed through years of observations of sales including many ripoffs, thefts, and problems with member sales.

It takes a LOT of time to review all the classified posts. Many of the moderators have 'expertise' in an area that allows them to focus on wheel sales or SC300/400 parts or general classifieds best... spreading that out across the sixteen different regional / club forums would make review difficult at best. The regional forums are most often read by 'non-moderator' members whose focus is meets and organization, not review and enforcement. The protection of our membership from classifieds sales ripoffs is something that is very important to the CL community.

Also not visible to you is that I personally take action with any member who gets negative feedback posted in the buy/sell feedback forum. If I don't believe that the explanation given is sufficient or that enough effort is made to come to a resolution that both the buyer and seller can live with I don't allow members to sell on CL any longer. Sometimes I ban them if the issue is bad enough, but they often simply get restricted access to the classified forums - they can't see them any longer. We'd basically be turning the recurring 'problem sellers' loose just to sell somewhere else on CL.

A secondary issue is that many of the regional forums often get spammed by businesses (often local, often not) who are soliciting, promoting sales and advertising without supporting the forums. With sales posted in the regional / club forums it would definitely encourage this activity.

I strongly suggest always putting the location name in the title of any FS/WTB post.
