Hello,

I'm curious to know where the Help Wanted section is going. Are you planning to get rid of it in favor of the Classified ads?

At the moment it's a bit confusing, being able to bump your thread but not being able to open a new topic. And closing all threads in the Help Wanted section would lead to the most recently bumped threads being on top for eternity, which also seems unfair.

Secondly, with the Help Wanted section still around the Classified section still seems to gather less attention.

It'd be awesome if you could shed some light on this matter.

Cheers,
Moritz

We can't cut off "Help Wanted" immediately because there are still plenty of active projects listed there. If a typical ad duration runs 30-45 days, I don't think it's fair if we would shut down the help wanted forum until we at least give that level of grace period given that we only transitioned to "Classifieds" on February 2nd.

When it is shut down most likely "Help Wanted" will be a redirect link to classifieds.
