Default F/S section done by category

Is it possible to have the For Sale section broken into category similar to the General Forum?

Maybe have it less, as in
  • On-Road Electric, Nitro
  • Off-Road Electric, Nitro
  • Engines, Pipes, Motors, ESC
  • Batteries, Chargers, Power supply
  • Radio, Servos
  • Tools and stuff
  • Tires all sizes

The search function is not always accurate when you are trying to buy something in particular. You can spend hours searching and just going through pages.

Would this be a good idea? Maybe it has been tried before and it failed?

In a more perfect world, great idea. Truth is, WAY too many people on here are nowhere near smart enough for that to work without a HUGE amount of moderating.

i think it should be 2 sections
section #1 "For sale sections for experience racers":
section #2 "For sale sections for idiots that cant follow rules"

We're going to be changing the entire FS/T section away from the forum altogether, and into a classifieds section, searchable by keyword, etc. Hold on a couple of months.
