but it gives the impression of more threads and therefore more traffic so nothing will ever be done about this, as highlighted when a limit on the amount of active threads was not in the rules update despite it having almost universal approval (as shown in the numerous feedback threads anyway).

One of the sellers I assume you are referring to has a positive feedback of 142, so I suspect her method of selling pleases a lot more people than it upsets.

Been highlighted before nothing will be done.

Based on what? I don't think their feedback score bears any relation to what people feel about the posting style. It doesn't even mean 142 people 'like it', it means 60 odd people have had a successful purchase, nothing more, nothing less.

This is something that is wanted by the overwhelming majority of members who use fs /ft and has been requested time after time.

Apparently its not a problem though......

More of a problem is blatant trader like behaviour by some and nothing done. More new stuff doing the rounds than in a shopping centre,

If you have one thread with ten items, in effect the other 9 items get a free bump when someone enquires about the 10th. So I have no idea why people insist on listing separately

I want to see something done about this, Its becoming to be a joke now,

Unfair on other members who have a single thread up and it gets pushed down because few other members have more than one thread active and they are all down the first page and second page where that single member gets pushed back after minutes of bumping there thread,

a limit should be implemented on how many fs/ft threads you can have active at any time

Least on avforums you can only have 1 thread for each category i believe

Big thanks to bass_monkey for bumping my single thread to Page 2 within a couple of minutes on a sunday morning with her 15 odd threads she bumped at once

I think as well as this issue that ASB needs more help...........there are loads of threads in FS/FT at the mo with more than 3 bumps and nothing listed in the OP, plus some want anything threads that have gone unmoderated all afternoon/evening.

must be ok to bump more than 3 times now then, the rule change mustn't have been mentioned :)

If there's anything you feel that has gone unactioned, do please list it and we'll comment.

Trading Rules Revised
The Trading Rules were updated on 09/11/2010. If you use the trading forums it's in your interests to review. Click here for further info.

Just used my last bump and instantly pushed to the bottom of the first page because beth25 decides to simultaneously bump seven different threads for individual items of clothing. This is completely unfair and at the very least, there should be a rule banning more than a couple of thread bumps within an hour, or something similar.

your Gran turismo thread doesnt even appear in my FS view!

ALthough loads of clothing does even though I have that category switched off

We're about to change the rules, I don't envisage any more than a max of 3 clothing threads per member being live at the one time. We won't be restricting clothes sellers as we do appreciate there is a demand, however there are too many single item threads.

iff that means a limit of three active threads for every user then great news.

excellent news, what will the rule actually be?

Sounds like a pretty popular rule change, makes a nice change!

This is only aimed at clothing for the meantime, as primarily these tend to be of a significant volume and usually pretty low priced. So in order not to suppress those types of listings, we'll be asking for a max 3 live threads at any one time. However as we are asking members to bulk up their listings, we have to ensure that they can leave more than 5 feedbacks per thread. We can review again after a short while and tweak as necessary. Hopefully it's a win/win for all.

When will this start?

Good move by the mod squad, glad to see our thoughts are being listened to for the benefit of all the users, can only see this being a good influence on the structure of posts and giving more fairness to the bumping system.

I'm happy for the rule change, though I think a "no scumbags" rule would have had a greater affect.

Great news though in all seriousness. Took far too long, but excellent :)

and another right now - kikikiosk, 9 threads, one from over a month ago!!

This comes up all the time needs to be stoppped, Im guessing these selllers go out to get this stuff just to sell on here so is classed as trading if you ask me.

People have kids, kids grow out of clothes. Unless it's like the person who accumulated something like 540 feedback in a year, then I wouldn't jump the gun and presume it's trader-like. It's just the unfair way that these items are listed which is the problem as it has a knock-on effect for other sellers, especially when seven threads are created for seven items, which could be split between two threads (due to the max five feedback per thread rule). The new rules which ASB mentioned, and will hopefully shortly implement, should ease the problem.

The one's that need stopping are the ones that sell new stuff all the time and mix it in with old stuff, it's quite clear of there intensions.
