Project Description

I want develop a craiglist website like [url removed, login to view]

Site characteristics

The site is notable for having undergone only minor design changes since its inception; even by 1996 standards, the design is very simple. Since 2001, the site design has remained virtually unchanged and uses only minimal CSS and JavaScript, a design philosophy common in the late 1990s but almost unheard of today for a major website.[citation needed]
Newmark says that Craigslist works because it gives people a voice, a sense of community trust and even intimacy. Other factors he cites are consistency of down-to-earth values, customer service and simplicity. Newmark was approached with an offer for running banner ads on Craigslist, but he decided to decline. In 2002, Craigslist staff posted mock-banner ads throughout the site as an April Fools' Day joke.[22]
Languages
In March 2008, Spanish, French, Italian, German, and Portuguese became the first non-English languages supported.[23]
Flagging
Craigslist has a user flagging system to quickly identify illegal and inappropriate postings. Users may flag postings they believe to be in violation of Craigslist guidelines. Flagging does not require account login or registration and can be made anonymously by anyone.[24] Ads sufficiently flagged are subject to automated removal when a certain number of users flag a posting. The number of flaggings required for a posting's removal is variable and remains unknown to all but craigslist.org.[24] Items are flagged for three categories: miscategorized, prohibited, or spam/overpost.[25] Although users are given a short description of each flagging category, they ultimately flag on their own prejudice, preference or misunderstanding of the Craigslist Terms of Use.[26] Flagging also occurs as acts of vandalism by groups of individuals at different ISPs to trigger the automated removal process of postings.[24] To better understand and clarify flagging it is up to the users to define rules themselves in such places as the Unofficial Flagging FAQ[27] and the flag help forum.[28] The forum's usefulness and effectiveness can be compromised by people who post malicious replies to help threads.[29]
Personals
Over the years Craigslist has become a very popular online destination for arranging for dates, and sex.[30][31][32][33][34] The personals section allows for postings that are for "strictly platonic", "dating/romance", and "casual encounters".[30][31][33][34]
The site has been found to be particularly appealing to help connect lesbians, and gay men with one another because of its free and open nature in addition to it being hard to find gay people in one's area for some.[35]
In 2005, San Francisco Craigslist's men seeking men section was attributed to facilitating sexual encounters and was the second most common correlation to syphilis infections.[35] The company has been pressured by San Francisco Department of Public Health officials leading Jim Buckmaster to state that the site has a very small staff and that the public must police themselves.[35] They have however added links to San Francisco City Clinic and STD forums.[35]
