    Re: Rule Change - Bumping

    Hmmm.....I can see that I'm going to get into trouble, one of these days. Not being in the FS section just for the money, I tend to try to have fun with FS listings, doing things like listing something for $200, then dropping the price $5 every 6-8 hours.

    Please report multiple threads for the same item if you see any. Moderators can remove them, etc.

    Does this mean FS ads will be limited to 4 photos per week?

    "Method 1. Uploading and Storing the Picture on the Forum. - section C.

    You may upload as many as four images in any one post."

    Geese Louise, it's a simple thang. Put some trust into our underpaid moderators. I would think if the moderators see an ad started with multi posts at approx. the same time to allow more than 4 photos, they would not considered it as a bumping.

    This forum is a free service, provided by volunteers. The forum has many functions, only one of which is to allow members to sell their equipment to other members.

    When we mark an item sold - and nobody takes a percentage - that is not considered a bump.

    If you find the restriction too confining, you may have to find relief elsewhere

    Nope not at all. Never mentioned "too confining" just seeking clarification.

    Ken Lee: I think ghostcount's question may have been about people posting multiple "replies" to their original post with additional photos, as opposed to posting multiple "threads." Just swapped the terms (which happens to me all the time!).

    Limiting repeated bumps sounds like a reasonable idea. And, a special thanks to the forum's volunteer moderators that keep this site so civil and fun!

    I would hope that if you post an ad the immediately post a reply with some additional photos that it would not be considered a bump. Sometime it is nice to have more than 4 photos of an item.

    You are right. If we create a For Sale post and want to provide more than 4 photos of the item as part of the original post, that's perfectly understandable and acceptable.
