Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

  1. Add 'Scam' flag to allow users to flag post as scam

    Even though with the mobile phone number implementation, less scam can be seen, there are still too many scams appearing. While we can flag for "double", "obscene", etc, there is no flag for "Scam".
    Most of the scams are expensive items sold at unbelievably low price, "shipped from overseas". When contacted, they ask you to transfer money via Western Union. We all heard of those. Can we please get a flag for these?

    • ban commercial advertisements

      Non paying commercial ads should be banned as the advertisers repeatedly post ads and robs the space and attention for other users.

      • Create "Mobile Phones" category - remove from computers.

        There are billions of "mobile phone" ads. Since there are so many, it becomes difficult to browse "Computers & Electronics". Every second, several new phne ads are posted.
        Please create their own category for mobile phones. Those like me, who are looking for real computer & electronics will appreciate it!

        • Flag User aka Scammer

          Instead of only flagging ADS, why not along people to flag users?
          Since we can see alot of foreign "sellers" or scammers are posting in pHing.
          This reduces bandwidth, and helps search to be faster.

              Presently, users don't seem to be allowed to delete accounts created. Enable it!

              • Phing to auto delete ads that are more than 1 month old

                Ever seen all those ads that are 2-3 months old or more?Some are even sold and the sellers seems lazy to delete it and seems to let it just be.Will really like Phing to have an autodelete function for ads that are more than 1 month old.I believe phing users will only want to see the latest ads.

                  We have been tinkering with the idea of hiding those “old” ads for the search/browse interface. You will still be able to find those ads via the user’s profile though.

                  • Hope Phing can allow seller to bump ads.

                    I liked phing's old system of giving sellers option to bump ads. In this way keen sellers need not always post ads when they expire. They can edit tand bump the existing ad. Of course phing can delete ads which are inactive, not edited or bumped by seller. Some indication beside the ads on timeline to expiry will help seller to know when to bump again.

                        I bought this PC from a dealer named Christopher Ong on 09th March 2009. He downloaded a Windows XP OS which he claimed as part of the deal.

                        Recently, my Windows XP OS got corrupted and required the recovery disc. When I called him today to solved this problem, he starts claiming that warranty is only for hardware and not software. This is not acceptable and not the right way to treat a customer! As he clearly…

                          • Verify users by sms in order for them to post ads to minimise scammers.

                            Add a verification process to ensure they have a valid local phone number before they can post ads. this way, if a seller wants to sell something over in Singapore, they have to get a local rep to do so. Of course, there will be ways around it, but it would make it more difficult for scammers to do so and adds a layer of security.

                                    • Some users are creating different accounts to bump up their ratings!!!

                                      Sms verification before anyone can leave feedbacks is a good practice since this is an online marketplace, buyers need to feel safe. Or simply do random checks on those leaving or receiving feedbacks. Ban the ip address of whom are guilty of such activities.. Cos it is misleading for the buyers..
