    Ok, i dont know if you read my last post yesterday....

    Anyway...

    I cleared all my cache, temp files everything!

    Reset modem router etc and have a brand new IP

    Signed up for a new gmail and new craigslist!...yet it STILL GHOSTSSSS

    BUTTTT

    When I use my old accounts it works fine. I have read about the "aging" account thing but it surly cant mean that no one can use the account straight away?

    What is wrong!!!!! ARHG

    Thanks D:

    Are you posting links in your ads? If so, are you changing the links up?

    Maybe they've disabled new accounts from being able to post links? Surely not...

    Keep us updated.

    I normally post in the For Sale section. Obviously the recently changed that section to require accounts and be phone verified. I was able today to create 3 new accounts and post to each one WITH LINKS. I am able to see my ads, which means I'm not getting ghosted. I'm using proxies (and probably not even good ones).

    Perhaps try testing a new ad. Just something really basic with some text and no pictures or links just to see if it goes through. It probably won't make any sense to whoever is reading it, but at least you will know whether it's your ad or perhaps some block of IP addresses your using.

    If it turns out maybe it's your IP, try using proxies. Lots of proxy software and proxy information in the forums here.

    Nope no links.

    However there is an email. However, im in the jobs section so surly an email is ok?

    If I use a proxy can i use an account ive already made? Or do i need to make a new account while going through the proxy?

    Craigslist got really hardcore in 2008 dude. Its getting more and more difficult to post on it. Really a pain in the ass and not really worth my time. I used to make bank off it though. Serious bank, not even chump change.

    Craigslist is still NOT over. May not be what it used to be, but there's still money to be made there

    It's anything but over. There's still plenty of opportunity and with them cutting back on so many things, it will allow us to actually have less competition. It just depends on how much work you want to put in to get your ads up.
