Correction to my previous post, every user is supposed to get 10 free ads. I changed this back in August from 2 ads to 10 ads. What I do not know is if users who have posted ads prior to this or even users who where members prior to this that it is retroactive.
Mike, I see that you posted an ad back in July prior to me making the change. I will check with the developer of the classified ads to see if the count is retroactive.
Originally I set the free classified ads limit to 2. The thought behind that was to prevent anybody from using the classified ads as their own personal store. If someone wanted to do that then they could donate $5.00 to the site for 24 more ads.
I'm not looking to make money from the classified ads. I believe that there is value in the classified ads to the members on the site, especially when somebody has something to sell that maybe useful to someone for their boat(s). To help promote the use of the classified ads I have increased the limit of the free ads to 10.
