Im getting really tired of this. Every morning I login and check a few of new posts on my favourite sections and usually you just want to to see the damn price but... some smart asses decided to insert 10 spaces or move the price to the the end of the post and now I cant quick preview the price so now I have to open his overpriced banana hanger post just to see he wants 5 arms for his precious banana hanger and all he did was waste my time.
I never opened a thread and decided "well I opened the thread might as well buy it now" and it also give the seller a false impression of interest for the product.

If I decided to sell a Titan XP and I put the price at the end of the post like an asshole and I see 300 View on the page within 3 hours and I think well 300 views people must be interested but in actuality 280 views were just people curious to know what a Titan XP is selling for on carb.

Seriously it wastes a lot of time. For example if i decide to go look for a nice gpu for gaming so nothing overkill you know something like a 1070 . If I open a new tab for each gpu I see that meets those requirements I might open up like 20 after going through 3 pages and after wards ill close 15 of them because I didn't see the price was ridiculously expensive. and sorry to says I see a lot of resellers doing this and it happens everywhere on the forums.

Am I the only person that finds this annoying?

He has a point .
I actually think the template should make it mandatory to have the price in the first couple of lines.
As you say you can just hover your mouse over the thread and auto preview without clicking on the 90% of crappy deals.
Should be implemented . Price should always go near the top.
Whats the product ? Whats the price ? Move on.

Doesn't clicking on sale threads help Carbonite as well by showing ads etc?
If that is the case , then auto preview shouldn't be an option.
It saves me so much time and hassle.

Frursday thread much?

What grinds my gears more is when you got to scroll three pages in to find said item was sold or retracted but le thread is still open
This!!!!!! Holy mother of mercy this should be a ban-able offence leaving your sold thread open when the last post on the thread is 'sold' and its still open....

Thing is it does. Its the 2nd or 3rd point you need to put in for the template itself. Even if you have a small description (I checked myself on my threads as I do a small info post before) it still shows the price in the hover window that comes up.

So there really is no excuse not to have it show without really going out of your way to make your post 'unique'

Wish there was a mandatory field (i.e. like the Sales/Wanted tag) which also shows in the heading.

And if someone specifies a lower price in it than the price in the thread, insta week vacation.

But this sounds like too much work.

I agree , people should stop screwing around and just start their thread with the template and then add their back-story BELOW that .
