This idea came up in a different forum, and I think it would be more effective here.

We need a place to advertise! It could be used for a lot of different things: Personals, Job Opportunities, For Sale, For Rent, Free to Good Home, Clan Openings and anything else you guys can come up with.

Why hasn't this been done already Question

I'm for this... I role play reading the enquirer in Story.... It makes the Coffee Shop in South Shore much more homey when one can read newspapers in it.
So it's an idea I would use.

I'd even put in an add:
Building's for Rent:
Have a trick or a trade? South Shore has buildings and rooms for Rent. Contact Skye for more information. Excellent location.

I like the idea, but: I have two characters that both have reasons to place ads. Would having two accounts of the enquirer be acceptable (if we get this)? I'd rather not have the accounts associated with each other, they are their own characters.

It doesn't have to be in these forums. It should be in the wiki, where anybody can edit anything. That way, ads can be removed when no longer needed, revised if needed, multiple columns, etc, etc.......

...

I think I just volunteered to set it up, didn't I?

I love it. What, exactly, is the output in the box as soon as you hit ALT-Y? It doesn't work on mac, and I need to find the equivalent.

For me, it gives:

" --- //[[archiesholland@gmail.com|Ashtu]] 2011/06/06 01:42//"

I personally then edit out the email address (clutter) and the preceding dashes (garbage), which leaves the link Ashtu

Edit: Dizzy, I also just edited it for you to fix the line breaks.

Mr. Green

I am so excited that this Idea is taking off so well!! I remember talking about it before with some friends a while back, but then when i saw that other thread i thought... what a perfect time to Suggest! This excites me greatly. It'd be wonderful is CMJ could add a link to it on the main page, or include it in the link for the Enquirer... or something Along those lines. that way, the Classifieds become a lot more... well, read.

This makes me very excited to see where this all shall go.

Just tossing my two pennies in the pot: Even though now I had to change my dwelling plans, I absolutely love this thing! Sorry if it gets a bit annoying, but some fake ads only serve to make it more "Realistic".

Oh, this is very, very nifty, dear. Thank you so much, Ashtu and the lovely brainstormers! I had to fiddle with the setup for a moment, before I realized what in the blazes was going on. Perhaps... Not the best thing to start off with once I'd finally gotten an account.

But it's so shiny.

That'd be me. The original header image is too gray to match the background with the Enquirer, so I added a sepia effect to it. I was amazed that sepia actually has uses! I'm quite happy the way it turned out, but if someone with more skills can do a better job, they're welcome.

Someone want to go in there and clean it up? I can tell it has too many characters on all three columns but no clue which ad is doing it. I tried to fix it and am now giving it over to someone more qualified.
