Canberra.Craigslist: Would You Use It?

I was thinking about all of the sites that can help out newcomers to Canberra - AllHomes for rental places, BMA for gigs, RiotACT for news & discussions, work bulletin boards for classifieds - and got wondering whether it'd all be better if were all in one place. Then I got thinking about sites that do have all of those things and Craigslist stood out. Sydney, Melbourne, Brissy, Perth & Adelaide all have localised versions, why not Canberra? So I asked:

Hi, I was wondering what your criteria was for a craigslist for a new location? I live in Canberra, the capital of Australia, which I imagine has the same sort of needs as most other cities. Our capital has a small population, but has a transient population with government staff, politicians, students and all sorts of support people (especially IT) coming & going, so there's always a need for listings of rental properties, share housing, stuff for sale, personals and the like. So what conditions have to be met for a new canberra.craigslist?


and got a reply in a couple of hours:


Hopefuly soon!


Thanks,
craigslist customer service


Not exactly what I was expecting, but interesting nonetheless. If there was a canberra.craigslist site, would you use it?

I've wondered the same thing (as someone heading into Canberra), and it would be goddamned useful.

Here's to hoping they have canberra.craigslist.org up in the next month or so!!
