Sorry it's such short notice (starts tonight), but anyone south of Oxford might catch a glimpse over the weekend
Sounds like inspiration for an expensive scale build
An abnormal load that is nearly 90 metres long will be transported from Didcot along the A34 Southbound on Friday, taking up both lanes and travelling at just 10mph
This disruption is expected to start at around 7pm when a transformer from the Didcot Power Station is carried to Avonmouth Docks.
It will be taken on a girder trailer with three tractors, two pulling and one pushing.
The overall dimensions are approximately 4.87m wide, 4.98m high, 89.67m long and 637.80 tonnes gross weight.
The convoy, which will take up both lanes of the southbound carriageway, will travel at a maximum of 10mph and will effectively close the southbound A34 from Didcot to the M4 Junction 13 in the section that it is travelling on. Over the weekend it will travel along the M4 westbound, also causing delays.
Police are advising motorists to seek alternative routes.

It is to stop spam and it won't be changing.
Please start a new thread if you feel it needs more discussion, this one's for the trade forum.
With regard to archiving split between SOLD and old, that still involves people manually editing threads to a set pattern, something that's pretty much impossible to get anyone to do here - the amount of 'illegal' bumps and posts about repros we have to delete suggests very few eople take much notice of the rules.
Deleting your own threads isn't an option, simply because of the post-count issue and issues if bad feedback is posted in the original trade ad.
It's also not possible to limit the function to the trade forum, which means if it were (was?) allowed, threads across the whole of the forum could be deleted by anyone that didn't like the way the discussion was going or no longer wanted to be a member.
i tend to add a reply, rather than religiously altering the original thread title (not always possible on smart phone version)
Adding a reply to a SOLD ad doesn't stop people looking at it if you don't edit the title - all it does is bump it to the top of the trade forum only for readers to find out it's no longer a trade ad
Editing the title only would be far more helpful to buyers as the title is what shows in the default search results.
There's plenty doing that already, at least then prospective buyers can email you with a second offer in case the deal falls thru.
Also, ticking that box to remove from public listing is reversible, so if deal falls thru remove the tick and the trade is back in your traderoom - at least that way you don't have to remember to do anything once the item's 'properly' sold
