Totally agree.
#2
Just checked the user has in excess of 25 active threads.....surely this is bordering on trader like or simply poorly formatted posts...could a mod take a look please

Sorry if i have offended anyone I presume it was at me. Didnt realise there was a limit to the number of threads. Sometimes when lots of items get listed on one thread things get missed hence separate listings.

There is no limit in the rules and you can list your items seperately if that is what you want to do no problem. :thumbsup:

There is no limit to how many threads you can have, but it would be nice if members didn't make it excessive.
I do know what you mean about having too many items in one thread though, as it gets seriously confusing.

I would suggest maybe listing two or three per day. :)

I agree a limit on threads would be positive, but what would the punishment be say you did more then 5 at a time. Locked shut and not able to list for 7 days. Think it would be harsh on OP to get a heaver punishment, unless there a serial offender.

In an ideal world the forum software would prevent you having more than a set number(as per AV forums)....but the thread could be closed and reason for closure posted.....

The new voucher rule is being dealt with sensibly by the mods,no infraction etc so this should not be a huge issue.

Not for me to decide anyway,just put out there for consideration:)

I asked this before and had a half and half response from people..............but nothing at all from the team. :)

Would be nice to see some sort of limit.

Yeh we will just have to hope that these changes that are being talked about will include software upgrade for that section.

Yeh I agree it is being dealt with sensibly, seen the mods re-open vouchers for trade.:)

I'll report the thread for a response.

completely agree, has been asked before by a myself and others, would help with a lot of the breaches, includin unfair bumps, had the same person decided to close the other 12 threads he would fill two pages with bumps for their own threads anf bumped by mods for closing, utterly rediculous

does this happen often or is it just the odd isolated case? if it happens frequently then yes i agree a rule change could be implemented but if its just the odd occasion im sure it could be sorted out amicable with a little word with the offender and reporting the posts

I maybe making a sexiest comment, but its mainly women who offend on this. Theres a few members who make massive multiple posts from my time trading on here. I have no problem with any of the listings but when theres 10-15 open at once and as what happened when boothy created the thread they all get bumped it's unfair on the rest of the forum, especially if they bump in between the bumps. Also very messy to admin I would of though.:)
banned#16
the main problem is a member can only leave feedback once per thread, the op can so multiple times i think, so the big problem is if someone has 20 items for sale we see 20 threads, admit its only a small amount doing this, but still unfair on the others, the same as the ones who reserve a post and add, pics on request, this is purely for bumping, and because of the way bumping can remove their threads off the front page within secs you canna blame them

Yeh I just leave feedback for any thread these days and label the item sold/bought. It's just another limitation on the current system, another I don't think they thought would get so popular on creation.:)

I think it depends on feedback or something as i can leave multiple feedback per thread. :)

and that also creates problems when finidng members clearly using the fs boards to buy and sell on, so again something else that add problems to the boards rather than making things easier
#24
i honestly think there are too many rules as it is......do we really need more rules written down to be followed to the letter........cant some of these issues that have been implemeted recently go back to how they were before with a little commonsense apllied and mod discretion......seriously over the last few months its got a little too serious with "the rules"
#25
[COLOR="Blue"]agree, i would like to see a sensible limit added too

i feel the fs/ft section is growing and so must the rules[/COLOR]

I don't think it happens much at all(listing threads all together), the problem usually happens when the moderators bump threads to get them locked.

indeed it has grown beyond all recognition in the last year or so....rules need to be stricter to reflect this

It does Saint. :)

The second bit I also reflected on a couple of weeks back. Editing the last post would work wonders to lower the bumps in active threads, though the admin team said they put in the extra bump to counter this, when it has no effect if people don't know your bumping other threads.:p

How often?

How often?


Couldn't give you exact answer. But enough to be noticed day in day out. Remebering that most threads are active a couple of days at least.

For a rule to come in, it's always best to give some idea of the frequency, the mods wouldn't bring in a new rule due to one or two members making a complaint about something that is hardly noticeable.






Oh Wait!

so you want member to take print screen shots whenever we see it, i personally think this would help in lots of ways, from thread bumping to getting threads locked, so no i have not got any screen shots, yes i know it happens alot because i see it alot, but i doubt very much this will get any backing from the mods either way

Hmm Okay I'll remember that.:?

Think the mods know who the culprits so to speak. It doesn't really matter, but it would help let the board move more slowly and give fairer chance of selling an item for others.:)

It does matter if it's happening "frequently", all I am saying is to give the moderators some kind of idea of how often. Once a hour, day, month etc.

"We" see more than they do.

how else are you going to show that it is happening, oh you mean members with 20 odd threads, you want adma to link ot their profiles, bit unfair this shouldnt be member specific, as i said i think its a good idea for lots of reasons and will leave it there, because i know where this will end up going
banned#37
We don't feel there is a requirement to restrict members to a maximum amount of current threads in fs/ft, although rather perversely this may actually be of benefit if set at one, e.g. no more infractions for 'dual' listing, although it wouldn't prevent others from relisting the same or similar items immediately.

Perhaps we're looking at this from the wrong angle. There is a demand for many items, particularly childs clothing, just as there is a demand for games/gadgets and other items of that nature.

Having noticed that it's never (or perhaps very rarely if ever) that complaints arise from sellers of clothes, it might only be an argument from one side only, who perhaps wouldn't complain if the same lists were xbox/ps3/retro/gadgets ?

Perhaps we should go along the lines of more flexible categories and better filtering ?

Sorry thought you were being funny.

At least once a day or every two days I'd stake my claim on. Which tbh really doesn't matter, as its the combined impact of the all these threads by one person.:)

as been said a thousand times, if hey could only have one active thread, then they would be aware it would have to be closed/locked/shut before relisting, so another problem sorted, etc,etc

There's no real rule to report them under. Clothes are the main culprit for this multi threads, tbh I would complain if they listed one PS3 game if they were a less popular of six different types for example, as they could of gone under one title.

I don't think the items are the real issue here, its the amount of open threads the user has at one time, it simply has more presence on the forum and a better competative rate.

I don't use filters on the FS/FT, maybe that would have a plus, but tbh I might want some clothes on day, I wouldn't want to miss out on a potential bargain either.:)
