to post against this thread is to question the authority of the mods here , for this id guess its not a good idea to express too much , feedback will come through with a ``take it up with the mods ``stance

bumping doesnt actually mean useing the word bump , its any post without real context posted expressly to bring to the forefront a thread within the interests of the original thread starter , the idea of a couple of bumps is to allow the continued flowing of new threads with older threads allowed to die off , personnaly i think 2 bumps is a little though and 3 would be more appropriate

start your thread off again fella

Yes rules are rules, but this one doesnt seem to benefit the seller (or potential buyers for that matter) in any way shape or form in its current state.


It's not there to benefit the seller or the buyer in particular. It's there to stop people bumping their threads like mad to keep them at the top of the discussed tab. It's there to benefit everyone.

No, im questioning the application of a rule and more importantly the clarification of said rule as it is not clear at all.

And this is my point. What is classed as real context? I would have thought that what I wrote in the thread could be and should have been classed as real context expecially as it totally related to the sale of the goods I was offering at the time. If that is not in context then please tell me what is so that at least myself and others will know for the future.

Cheers

I think only 5 is important information that changes the listing. 3 maybe. Otherwise it is pretty obvious filler.

Thanks for the reply Admin, much appreciated.

OK to clarify I can get this unlocked for £15 and debranded for an extra £7 if anyone wants it done before they buy it.


So you are saying that this is classed as filler? Unlocking the phone opens the sale up to a much larger audience, and not only that provides a serivce that others may not access to and effectively changes the description and desirability of item that is being sold.

So just to confirm, this is not a "good reason" and is classed as "filler" ? - just so I know for next time.

Cheers

Maybe the context of the other bump doesn't help.

I think adding in info that might be relevant just opens up too many holes. Like, "Oh and for anyone interested you can also but a map programme for £15", or "For £15 you can get a gps addon"

you could of added all the info to your op rather than new posts.

yep, thats what you should have done rather than bumping the thread each time with added info

I had a for sale thread removed yesterday after someone decided it was his duty to point out that [COLOR="Red"]in his eyes only[/COLOR], I was bumping my thread without good reason.

Surely if the thread was removed it wasn't 'in his eyes only', it was also in the eyes of the mod who removed it?
#12
The question I have is why didn't you just edit your comments to include this information?

Of course, but who would have seen the information when the post was on page 3 or 4? This is my point

Every reply is a bump, I am fully aware of that, but surely if you are adding information that is relevant it cannot be classed as "without good reason".

I had a for sale thread removed yesterday after someone decided it was his duty to point out that in his eyes only, I was bumping my thread without good reason.


Its not what you did mate, its the way in which you did it, which incidently is not the first time you heve either **** someone off of been banned for interfering now is it?

Surely if the thread was removed it wasn't 'in his eyes only', it was also in the eyes of the mod who removed it?


Which brings me to ask why people's threads are instantly removed, instead of just removing the allegedgly bumped posts?

The question I have is why didn't you just edit your comments to include this information?


Because I honestly thought that giving relevant information to the item or the sale of the item would have been deemed as good reason. Obviously now I stand corrected.

Thanks to all those who replied, especially Admin who clarified a few things for me. Just for the record I'm not going to reply to this any more as I seem to have worked out what is allowed and what isnt. :)

Thats exactly what a bump is. You did it 5 times.

The only reason why a seller should post in the thread and not edit the original post is when directly answering a buyer or adding photos (as they can not be put in the op)

No matter what page of the thread you are on you can see the original post at the top of the page hard to miss it really and most check for updates on what has sold saves them having to read the whole thing if all the info and updates are in the op.

The rules are there for everybody to abide by which you did not you are just upset because you were singled out.

bump.

(sorry)

I think in general quite a bit of leeway is given to sellers as there frequently seems to be small pieces of information intentionally spread over multiple posts which could have been added in an earlier post.
