New classifieds

I have just tried to look at the new classified section. I ticked the T&C's but then had to fill in private info. (I didn't) Why does AO want my phone number and postcode?

Re: New classifieds

Also, is it only for AO's security checks on the buyers or will the vendors be able to see

Looks like an online shop for Donalds! Good for him getting so many ads up there

Re: New classifieds

I did the same, got to the part where I had to put in location etc - I don't want what it says under my profile picture to change so won't be using this feature either which is a shame.

Re: New classifieds

Guys, its just a test, dont use real data, we just want you to test and play.

Eventually and only if you want to sell something at AO, like ebay and for the protection of others, we will be asking for personal details so that we can confirm you live where you say you do by AO sending an activation code out to you, this is still in early planning and is only required for Auctions or buy now etc.

Its BETA software, just go with it for now!

Re: New classifieds

Cheers Ian, its alright I put my data in and it hasn't changed the information in the location tab under my avatar. I must have been thinking about something else

Re: New classifieds

Eventually, the plan is that info like phone number will be used to auto fill your adverts with some of the info such as country, first few digits of postcode and telephone number, but you will have full control of this. Of course like the rest of the site, we are comitted to protecting your information under the data protection act anyway.
Perhaps we should have removed this stage from our test but I guess we cannot get everything right and it's great that you have all highlighted this as now we can do something about the process to make things more clear.
