It's been up since April and only has 4,000 views. I also haven't been getting any questions from SF members opposed to at least 3-4 per week when I used to when I'd post an actual ad.
I think having a pinned thread like this is a good idea, but I can see how it's not getting enough exposure. I'm not sure what the answer is, but maybe it time it will build as members get used to it.
Agreed - I believe it is the actually the movement of the thread that catches the eye as it moves
up and down the page. I wonder what sellers with pinned sales threads have to say about this.
