    Bumping in the Classifieds

    APUG has just installed an anti-bumping tool that enforces a 3-day wait between bumps.

    I think that's a terrific idea.

    Perhaps we could install the same here, since both sites use vBulletin.

    I'd rather just see a "rule" that no bumps permitted just for hte sake of bumping -- either add content or lower the price.

    I disagree. The purpose of bumping is to bring the item to people who've not already seen it.

    I have a few sales up that I bump once or twice a year, just to catch new blood.

    There really doesn't seem to be much of a bumping problem here (nor is there one on APUG either for that matter). Seems like over kill.

    That's easily gamed. I say the system ain't broke.
