need X-Zero installed and modded (it is a craig**ist type local classifieds site).
Mods needed would be to adjust and focus more on LOCAL search by making every posting include either a zip code or a longitude/latitude (and can accept input from a GPS device on a mobile unit or PC) - one or the other - and then anyone browsing can search for keywords including product/model names, etc etc and specify their OWN zip code or longitude/latitude and maximum radius to search and display posts of. Of course they can select by city/state/country if they want, but I want to feature the radius features prominently - I think they are the big thing lacking in modern local classified sites. possibly even add a link to google maps or a competing maps site for people browsing/searching when they click on a post, to see WHERE that item or poster is relative to them (which of course would provide directions to get to them, etc).
Anyway, thats the main mod plus one other improvement over craig**ist - just as they provide email forwarding services, I would want to provide not only email forwarding like CL does but also IM/chat, a telephone number (just hook to a free service that gives free VM & #s as an extension), AND email - so two sides can REALLY make sure and connect. Everything would be free, but perhaps offer some premium services like featured listings/bold listings/extended listings. But NO advertising at this point (no google or banners or things like that I mean).
