    And no, you cannot delete the post under Lab Puppies. You can only edit it and remove the text.

    With 63 days from breeding to birth and another 49-56 days before all pups are hopefully out the door, the 60-day reposting makes sense. Whether I'm buying or selling, I like to see litters be announced at breeding and come to the top again after birth. Where pups are not sold or sales fall through, it is also good to give a final boost where it's needed to get pups into good homes.

    My apologies. We had the delete setting to "mod" rather than "reg" for deleting on Lab pup classifieds...

    All registered users may edit their ads at any time and may also delete their ads at any time.

    I had forgotten that we made this setting not long ago, to disallow deleting ads....WHY? We had more than one user DELETE their ad and then repost it on the top!

    It is fixed now Lee and you can delete your ad at any time.

    I understand why you went to the "no delete" thing.

    To me, the 60 reposting just makes more sense.

    Whatever works easier for Chris since he's moderating all of this -- and like others I think it is great that we have this great service as part of RTF

    Me, too. I miss the banter. And it's drastically cut down on Bait's posts which is majorly bummin' him out.

    You really gotta be careful about how high a pedestal you put your method, your accomplishments, your dog on. There's usually someone who's done more, somewhere. And they may have used a different method than you did! Chris Atkinson 2013

    I'm for being able to post a given number of posts about a litter and litters in a year.
    I'll use five/fifteen for an example.
    Use them as you see fit, then no more posting about that litter or other litters.

    Why? And who's going to keep the tally?

    edit: And would you want the same limit applied to started dogs for sale?
