I think, we had enough of progress on Classified starter Kit based on Web Forms.
Its time to move ahead with the future and that would be to convert the classified starter kit to Asp.Net MVC Classified Starter Kit. It would be much easier to maintain and extends with Controller. I mean C from MVC
Act Right now, before its late and the charm is lost.
Asp.net MVC Classified StarterKit

MVC is great and straight forward. You can easily control everything on a MVC webpage. If you decide to migrate the classified starter kit to MVC please include as many AJAX elements as possible.

Oh No... I am not going to create it.
I am working with Rails for few projects. If you love rails, you will love love asp.net mvc.
I might convert this starter kit to Rails in future.

I understand you. I am also fan of MVC and .net 3.5. Actually, I've started playing with MVC a few months ago. I tend to keep up with the following technologies:
LINQ to SQL
Export and compession features of .net
I want to extend the scope of classes to be covered in the near future. I think it's the best way to get quick insight on something new in ASP.NET.
Sure, I've heard about Rails but not that much. Actually, I know it as Ruby. What about me, I am fluent in C# 3.0 and keep jealous eye on VB.net 9.0. Nowadays, we have no choice but to keep step with programmers working in other fields in terms of modern technologies.
So, I tend to keep track of other programming technologies (linux, adobe) by reading technical articles on new features and approaches. Sometimes, it allows to take advantage of early moments to embed new features to an application.

All I can say is... Once you touch Ruby On Rails, you will not think of anything else.
Start learning Ruby, since C# 3.0 and C# 4.0 is almost based on Ruby.
Ruby on .Net = IronRuby ( currently at 0.9.1 ) and 1.0 is round the corner.
With IronRuby, you can work with .Net like VB.Net, C# . One you touch Ruby or IronRuby you will not touch any other language thats for sure.
Please... also let me know, whats so special about VB.Net 9.0, since i am out of touch with Vb.Net since ages.

MVC and ASPX pages can coexist on one project so long as you're using IIS 7 +

Thanks a lot for sharing your experience and opinion on Rails.
Please find below all new features of C# 3.0 (Actually, VB.NET 9.0 and C# 3.0 are like two peas in a pod, so all below mentioned features are also available in VB.NET 9.0. Moreover it's so easy to integrate projects written in other .net languages to your
project in visual studio.) Follow this link for further details:
http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb308966.aspx I've already used all these new features. If you make the most of them in your projects you'll be able to reduce you code in times!

Cool. Actually, MVC is good option if you want to build mobile version of your application. With MVC you can easily create appropriate view for every particular mobile device.

did anyone converted this to MVC? I am looking for a Classifieds kit in MVC.

I also second the motion that the classifieds starter kit would be perfect as an MVC project. Has anyone started this yet? The old starter kit is outdated! Please let us know
