Right now, Employment ads posted by employers have a cost associated with them. Other ads are free. Our Classifieds Help page has that info.

Why does CNet penalize employers who have jobs available when so many people are looking for work?

Gramma, you're starting to sound like a socialist, and Logi is starting to stand like a capitalist. ha ha.

I agree with Logi, Castanet owes no one anything. There are so many other avenues to advertise through, let the free market determine the right course of action here.

Me? Socialist? Lordy! I tell ya - when I turn socialist, y'all better get yer tin foil hats ready. The end will be nigh and we'll all go *poof* in a mad frenzy of fire and brimstone (and maybe a few flashing lights).

I wasn't expressing an opinion one way or the other - I just find it odd that only that one classification was required to pay and I kinda wanted to know why. But I don't really NEED to know - it was just one of those passing curiosities I am prone to.

I am selling a business for a friend and a condo, plus was advertising to do free child care for new mothers who have a real need, yes VOLUNTEER! Well my ads came up for renewal, and the business went through free as usual, as did my condo. Then when I went to renew my free babysitting ad for new mothers in need, it was going to cost me $17.50 for 30 days! I was shocked!!! All ads were free except for someone wanting to offer free help to those in need? Well we went back & forth with emails and the best castanet could come up with was to ad a volunteer category under services and homes and houses?????
NOBODY looking for a babysitter is going to look under homes and houses. I am going to switch to kijiji, have had better replies from them anyway. If a company wants to charge for ads, you don't start with those wanting to do volunteer work in the community, shameful.

How about employers posting jobs on this site brings people to this site. Some of us are not rich I know it's only $20 but I can't hardly afford to pay most of the people I hired from here in the past. They sucked and never made me money, and thus having to constantly redo ads really adds up. I would have had to pay $80 this year alone so I could try training someone who hopefully will show up. Thus I use alternate sites who I'm sure love the extra traffic. When other sites are offering free and you are charging $20 what did you expect? What's next a paywall to read news stories or charging us a dollar to look up a weather report?

Delete button on my classifieds not working.

Postby Money_Talks » Nov 21st, 2012, 3:42 pm

I can only cancel an add. I can check the ad off but when I click delete it doesn't work. I have 4 ads needed to be deleted at the moment. Instead they are just canceled.

If you open C'net in a browser your toolbar should be showing. When you want to print, click file and then print.

Bah there's always a better way!

Kijiji for example, has a little printer button, that pops the ad out in a seperate window and doesn't print all the sidebar jargon and advertising, just the individual ad.

I ended up just copy & pasting the text & the photo into wordpad and printing that, but it really was a pain in the butt.

Thanks for the advice though :)

You can highlight the part you want to print and then when you go to print from your browser click on the print selection choice. Easy peasy

Would be nice if Castanet had a print button for ads though
