Default Adding Checking Interest to Classifieds

Is there any way that a checking interest prefix can be added to the drop down menu when creating a new classified thread? I just had to use "for sale" for a checking interest when its really just testing the waters for the item.

personally, I've always detested the "checking interest" threads... mostly, because it always seems (to me) as though they're not really 'checking interest' but, rather, they're checking to see if they can get an appreciable price for whatever they're wanting to sell but they don't want to outright ask some ridiculous price for the item and be called out on it ...but they'd be happy to accept an outrageous offer for the item. or, they have no idea what the item is worth, and don't want to offer it for sale at some ridiculously low price, have it bought nearly immediately, and then discover that they could've gotten 10x or 20x as much for it.

oh, and I'm "checking interest" in my Ranger; it's a 2001 2WD, very low mileage, well-kept, etc. If someone PMs me an offer of $20K, I'll probably accept it.

It's been suggested before and this essentially sums up my view.

Fine with me I was just curious. I also think there should be a seperate sub forum for ebay and craigslist finds because there is a retarded amount of them and its basically all "omg this guy is an idiot" or "are you shitting me" dumb stuff like that
