For Sale threads showing "SOLD" when not sold

This keeps happening to my threads, and it appears other members as well.

BlackBetty doesn't know why it's happening. Any other mods or admins want to chime in? I'm sure others want to know.

Us mere mods don't know. BB will have to enlist the backend admin to look into this.

I’ve looked at it multiple times and can’t find a clue. Checked to see if one of the staff was maybe monkeying around. Nope. Nothing.

What other members are having it happen? I’m not aware of that. Maybe we can find a pattern to help figure out what’s going on.

I see a lot of threads with 0 replies but they are closed.
Maybe the parts sold off this site and are being requested to close. I just figured they are being locked and not sold.

I sure don't know what to say. For the nonce, if any of those ads interest you, contact the OP.

Thanks for providing those examples.

I'm not sure what you mean. I am not interested in those ads. I am interested in selling my car parts.

None of those ads were yours. Are you worried the same will happen to you? A lot of ads aren't affected. We can't tell you why the board does this. All I can offer is to create your ad(s) and monitor them for unexpected closure.

I have been doing that....hence already reaching out to BlackBetty and starting this thread. Monitoring is not going to do anything.

A question for both of you whose classified ad has closed on its own: did you have a paid classified subscription when you posted the ad or were you members who were qualified to post here without paying? I’m trying to figure out any reason that I’m not aware of as
to why this might happen automatically without staff intervention. I’ve been around here over 10 years and this has never occurred until now that I’m aware of. Frankly I’m stumped.

Until we can get someone higher up than me to figure it out and solve it, the best I can suggest is to report the thread anytime it closes and one of us will open it back up as quickly as we can. Unfortunately that’s all that I know to do at this point. My apologies.

Thanks for trying to help.
I basically waited my time, sent out enough posts to qualify to post in the black market.
I actually was a long time member here on another user name but forgot my user/password after I sold my car in 2016 so I started a new username.

I was active on G35 Driver, a long time member of Acurazine and many other car forums so I'm definitely not new to the car community.
