    If you are not doing so, reporting the offending posts would be a good idea.

    Cheers, Al

    Yet again...

    Could sellers please stop clogging up the Recent Post feed by bumping their FS posts? Perhaps avoid bumping all together by setting their sales prices a bit more realistically ;)

    Also, is it correct that "one bump/post pr. day" only applies in the Private Sales subforum and not the WTB subforum? I would like the rule to cover both places.

    I second this idea, that it should apply to all sales forums...

    Agree.

    The rules clearly say one bump per day in 'private watch sales' and 'parts for sale' yet several people are bumping both again.

    Bumping over priced tat without a reduction is simply a waste of everyone's time.

    I don't think that's what the rules say. The headline of the Sales Forum rules say that the rules apply for all subfora, including WTB and Parts, but the part about bumping several posts mention specifically Private Sales:

    EDIT: The reason I'd like it to cover WTB as well as Private Sales is that both are shown in the Latest feed; Parts FS aren't.

    The rules on the 'parts' subsection clarify that one bump per day does already include private sales, parts and wtb.

    People just aren't following it.

    Regardless, parts, wtb, whichever, I agree it clogs up the latest feed. I don't even understand why private sellers need a daily bump. Weekly is sufficient surely?

    I prefer seeing TTT rather than Bump to get a sale thread up to the top of the Marketplace discussion. Use of TTT should fix the issue, right?

    Related, I'm looking forward to hitting 200 after which I can freely be a post farmer and rocket my numbers up like SpaceX.

    Seriously (possibly), there are quite a bit of annoying posts throughout OF that don't add any value and only seem to be for the purpose to reach the 200 threshold for posting in the Marketplace section. Most threads trail off with multiple posts contributing "cool" "great model" "would love one" "agreed" and similar posts which could also be covered by clicking on Like.

    Hey, BTW just noticed my Like counter needs a boost!

    We read this differently, it would seem. My quote was indeed from the the WTB section (Parts I don't care about as they don't appear in the Latest feed...) - andThe post in question by @cicindela is the same for all subfora. it specifies that this particular rule is for "Private Sales", not elsewhere. There is a heading below it also specifying which subfora the rule beneath it is for:

    @DLT222 - does this mean that I can start reporting double bumps in the WTB section? :)


    BTW, another point: do members really need to post "SOLD" or similar when selling an item? Isn't it enough to update the header? Yes, I'm nitpicking (again), but it would serve the same purpose, namely cleaning up the Latest feed.

    This should be a sign over the door to the sales forums.

    (I have to admit, I love the use of the word tat here. Captures it exactly.)

    A rule that might work is that you can only bump a watch 10 times regardless of price adjustments, duration, etc. That would make every bump precious. One would have to limit relisting, and it would probably just result in friends bumping each other's listings with comments, but it's an idea.

    Every third bump has to be another price reduction of 10%.

    Filene’s Basement in Boston used to sort of work that way.

    Guys — I’m sorry. I posted 3 watches to the private sales forum today and it’s the first time I’ve actually sold anything on the site since joining in 2015. I did read the rules and saw the one bump per day rule but "thread" didn't stick in my mind, yet was definitely in plain sight! I've requested to remove two of them and will repost this week. Won't happen again and thanks for your patience and for the space and for all of the great knowledge and connections I've made over the years!
