Someone (was it aethyric?) swore up and down to me that there is a craigslist for Champaign-Urbana. I know there is one for Chicago but I continue to disbelieve the existence of one in Champaign-Urbana.

Does anyone know the process by which new cities are added to craigslist?

No, but I could definitely use such a thing. I have a ton of actually pretty nice furniture to get rid of, and it's piling up on my back porch.

I suggested Nashville a couple years ago. They wrote back and said they would keep it in mind. Then about 6 months ago they launched one for Nashville. Not sure if my suggestion actually had anything to do with it though.
Too bad craigslist is so overrun with spam these days.

we can't expand as fast as we want, but are trying really hard.

Also, please flag spam, and when you see repeaters, please send a few sample links to us at abuse@craigslist.org

thanks!

actually, the spam on Nashville Craigslist isn't as bad as it used to be. i think people are finally figuring out the flagging thing.

This was the first I'd heard of Craig's list. I'll be putting in a request for Madison shortly.

I don't really think there's a formal way of requesting a city be added (apart aparently from talking about Craig in your LiveJournal).

Yeah, but it seems to be a fairly valid method of gaining his attention.

I'm a little surprised that Madison isn't on the list already. It's the San Francisco of the Midwest!

Useless tidbit of the day: There are some people that say that title goes to LaCrosse. Apparently they are even more gay and lesbian friendly than Mad-town.

Interesting. I guess it depends on what one thinks of most when they think San Francisco.

Well, I think progressive first, but then gay and lesbian rights come in at a close second. Madison is pretty progressive all around, but not as much as I'd like ;)
