general suggestions for search etc

1) change the quick search box to default to search BY DATE by default

2) prevent my avatar from randomly disappearing

3) provide a new posts since last visit button like vbulletin

4) provide a search box or filter at the top of the for sale and wanted forum to try to quick filter the results in a logical list

If your avatar complied with the OGR Forum policy, it wouldn't keep getting deleted.

3) provide a new posts since last visit button like vbulletin

That is built into the forum software and I can't change it. Use Advanced Search and you can do this.

2) prevent my avatar from randomly disappearing
As Hot Water said, if your Avatar complied with the rules, (it has to be a recognizable head shot of YOU) it wouldn't get deleted.

3) provide a new posts since last visit button like vbulletin
There are scores of ways to configure the alerts you get from activity here, including new posts since your last visit.

4) provide a search box or filter at the top of the for sale and wanted forum to try to quick filter the results in a logical list
Use the Advanced Search function to do this. Build the search you want, then bookmark it. You can search only in the For Sale Forum, by date, topic, key words, OP, etc. Very powerful.

Thank you gentlemen for taking the time to straighten me out.  Still learning the ins and outs of this.  I am on OGR noobie.

I have been very pleased with the support from everyone here,

Best wishes
