Would it be too much to ask.....?

My plan is to completely hive off the classifieds section from the rest of the forum, so it doesn't appear in latest posts etc.
Awwwwww, don't do that, i'll never spot owt, which may be no big thing for me but i very often see things wanted or for sale by others and point them in the direction, i've done this several times in the past few weeks generating sales for others.

I think the system works quite well as it is. Please don't add more steps for anybody visiting the site and wanting to have a quick look around.
I'm truly not interested in the FS and WTD, but it doesn't bother me that they come up in latest posts. It all adds to the context... (red tent for sale... fancy phone wanted...). Many new folks probably get interested by either the classifieds and/or reviews, so if it wasn't included in latest posts, perhaps wouldn't get drawn in to all the other stuff getting discussed.

Would it be possible to have some kind of switch or filter, so those who wanted classifieds included in latest posts could have, and those that didn't want them could opt not to?
As I use the Forum in 'topic' format rather than 'latest posts', I'm not bothered
I could do that, yes, that is completely possible if people would like that. My plan is to completely hive off the classifieds section from the rest of the forum, so it doesn't appear in latest posts etc. Are people generally in favour of splitting the classifieds? I can't do it retrospectively, but I can create a new 'wanted' folder and relabel the existing one as a 'FS' area? So no, it's not 'too much to ask', it's just that no-one's asked before. Thoughts?
Maybe this could be translated into Chinese for our more enthusiastic posters...
