If you are not familiar, basically craigslist is a 100% free classifieds service where you can sell ANYTHING for free. Sure beats Selling stuff in the classifieds in the Times News.

There are nearly 200,000 people in the greater Twin Falls area known as the magic valley.

Why does eastidaho and boise get a craigslist and Twin Falls/Southern Idaho does not?

There is no good classified service other than the paper, which has costs at nearly twice to sell something based on comparable papers in other areas.

Letí* get craigslist in Twin Falls. If Craigslist receives enough requests, they will create local forum for us to buy and sell our stuff.


Send Craigslist feedback at the following page, simply telling them we need a Twin Falls Craigslist.


http://sfbay.craigslist.org/cgi-bin/emailForm.cgi


Forward this to anyone that would be interested in providing feedback to the good folks at craigslist.


It paid off. A few weeks after spamming all my friends who have email addresses there is now a twin falls craigslist.

I feel proud.

I think I would make a great "bulk email sender" aka Spammer.


Not like anyone cares but I'm excited.

thats very cool. I don't know what I would do without craigslist in my life at this point. Anything I want sold is usually gone within days, at much better prices than any garage sale would give.

Nice job, Hans. Sounds like something I need to do for our county. My county Lorain county is west of Cuyahoga county, where Cleveland is. Our problem is that our county has 300,000 people, yet they shove us in with the "Cleveland" craigslist, and we don't have our own.

I think my county should have a separate craigslist due to being heavily populated.

Tell me about. For large items, CL is the way to go. I rarely use ebay anymore unless it'* a small item.
