    So for the time being, we're stuck with Craigslist....where people "can't host" or want to deal drugs with you.
    Well, I won't meet someone who can't.....and I've no interest in drugs. Narrows the choices considerably.

    And I think Craiglist has stopped adult ads. Locanto has taken a big amount of the adds. I'm still ok for now as many msg me without having ads up and I had a few contact me yesterday asking if I knew why cracker was down. No idea if the other sites will work as well for me time will tell. Plus ladies have to pay for a month ad up front compared to $5 at a time making it a hard decision where to spend that money wisely

    Craigslist is still active, but the ads haven't increased. I wonder if the cracker situation is permanent.

    Ahoy, Ozwarlock67, I suspect the situation will be permanent. A lot of people have forgotten that a "similar situation" occurred about 10 years ago with Gumtree. At the time there were lots of girls, gay men and drug dealers using gumtree. It is completely clean-up (as they say).
    Craiglist has been on the FBI list for a long-long time, so no surprise the situation has occurred.

    Guys, Langtrees has been great and is willing to help, Just let the ladies know.
    "Langtrees.com will offer FREE profiles to all Agencies & Privates that have been caught short."

    Another well establish site is, Escorts and Babes.com.(This site was always set-up for the eastern ladies)
    https://www.escortsandbabes.com.au/Directory/SA/Adelaide/5000/Any/All/

    I suspect, Locanto.com will be the first place that all groups will look at
    https://www.locanto.com.au/geo/504660/Burswood-Perth/

    and i have nothing to say about PP,

    Good luck everyone, let us know of any changes.
    All the best
    Cheers and Pass the Rum

    Locanto seems to be the platform of choice for the low-end pricing

    Langtree state drop down was not working a couple of days ago so must check again as it was not letting me register and old log in was not working.

    I am now on escort and babes and will be going onto SB in May after my next lot of treatment for my back end of this month.

    Locanto I am on the fence with may use for when I work in Elizabeth

    I did a $10 classified on PP as I do have some regulars over there

    Well given they only allowed here to be mentioned after the first time here shut down and some of us only went there after that I don't think it is fair to mention. I was glad that Langtree website has got a couple mentioned since closure of cracker/backpage. It appears not to have a good reputation with the ladies and some horrible pigs to be honest plus the ladies that are on there many very high priced not all and unless you are flawless, plastic with professional photos don't even bother. I have run inns with the now over a hand full beyond disrespectful men every time I log in there and while that is allowed ladies will spend their money elsewhere.
    I have a handful of regulars from over there so I placed a $10 for 1 month classified

    It will take a while for the industry to coalesce on a new Cracker equivalent, Locanto sux from a usability point of view.
    A bit like VHS vs Beta but with more options. Eventually one will rule

    Yes daily the only genuine enquiries have been existing clients right down to someone asking can he get a train from Noarlunga Downs to where I am after telling him I am 3 hours from there. And E&B adds work of distance from Adelaide so CBD adds will show first then Northern like Elizabeth last page and me being country the end of page 8. Has gone from 2 or 3 page to 8 since the collapse of Backpage and a large proportion on men unless they see your adds they don't msg. I'm a grumpy old women when it comes to time wasters lost track I have added this week to the timewaster/do not book list. It will be interesting what it is like when I am in Adelaide next
