I would like to do that, but I am afraid it would make entire too many categories.  Honestly, if we could get people to post their location in the thread title, we would be in business.  It something that I could probably modify.

You need to ad a category for sales or auctions as well

I don't mind the classifieds being all grouped together but for Heavens sake people.... anything "for sale" or "I am having an auction", needs to be in the CLASSIFIED section!!!   I am also not a fan of the side stepping "what does everyone think of XYZ calves that are for sale till next Saturday." way of posting things for sale. Geesh, doesn't "classified" mean anything to anyone?

That would be great if people put location in the title.

what about those two columns on the main classified page before the subject?????...not really sure what purpose they serve, but couldnt one or both be changed to state...people could enter abbreviated state titles there....make it mandatory, a field that has to be filled out to post the classified... ;D

went back and looked, one is called the message icon...why not have the states listed there...really, hardly anyone uses that function and its not really beneficial...who cares if you have a smiley out from your thread?....location would be so much more useful...just my two cents...

How about a wanted category?

What are we voting on? I thought you had already decided to stop the voting and divide into catagories? Is it a "wanted" catagory? If so, then yes, that would be good, as long as that is what people used it for.
I guess I just assumed that "wanted" would be a catagory to begin with.
If your wanting specifics:
    Cattle for sale
    Equipment for Sale
    Misc for sale (dogs, gifts, etc)
    Wanted
    Travel - To or From
