The software doesn't support an automatic expiration window, and moderators (volunteers all) only close an ad and move it to the archives if the seller posts a sold notice. Many sellers, unfortunately, never read the Marketplace policies and are unaware of how it works. Or forget. Or don't care.
The advantage of keeping the ads around (either in the classifieds or in the sold archives) is having the descriptions and photos of many trailers on file and accessible via a search. It's helpful for historical information as well as a resource for restorations and modifications.
