I searched to see if this has been asked but didn't see a direct answer.

My question is not how to close/lock threads but what is the easiest way to get the OP to close/lock their thread when their item(s) have sold in the Classifieds: Sell thread or when they are no longer looking for an item(s) in the Classifieds: Buy thread?

Sometimes I reply to the thread asking the OP to close the thread but that bumps the thread and probably creates more problems than good. Should I report the post? Is that the easiest way to get the thread closed? I'm not trying to create a lot of work for the mods but I really like the buy/sell section here and think the rules that are in place make for a good buy/sell community. But it's really frustrating when you're searching through threads and you click on one that is no longer relevant.

Please don't report we won't know the status anyway. Closing the thread is up to the members. And best way to get members to close threads is to send PM's to them. I am sure if members that use marketplace regularly often forgets to close and received lots of pm's then they will learn (maybe ;) ) a onetime marketplace user probably don't care.

Yeah, I figured reporting the post wasn't a good idea. I will PM the OP if I see any from now on.
