I think that topics in Buy/Sell/Trade/Giveaway section shouldn't show up in the "Latest Posts" section on the main page of the forums. Right now, there are 9 out of 20 topics listed in that area that are from the Buy/Sell section, and it kind of defeats the purpose of the Latest Posts section. It would be nice if that section was reserved for informational posts only, if people are looking to Buy/Sell something, they can just go to the section specifically. It wasn't a problem in the past, but with the growing popularity of the Buy/Sell section it has come to the point where nearly half of the posts are from that section, and it reduces the functionality of the main page. Also, that section is the only section where people bump topics just to put them at the top of the page, so usually there are topics that have no new added information on the "Latest Posts" area, which makes that area completely wasted space. Edit: Another thing that I thought might help, is limitting the number of active topics a person can have in the Buy/Sell section. I think limitting the number of active topics in that thread to 2(one for items you are selling, and one for items you want to buy) would be a great improvement. The section can really get overrun with one or two people who have 5 or more active topics, and there really isn't a reason they can't combine them into one topic.
