The thread linked below was closed due to apparent continuous bumping of a thread?? Well for a start the moderator andywedge is claiming that my space meant for pictures (which i haven't got round to adding) is a bump and it was posted about 3 seconds after the original post so can't of really bumped it that much, he's also saying that me thanking someone is a bump aswell? On top of that i've had everyone of my threads closed recently for cross promotion?(please look through my threads) Just to add... the thread there refering to was moved to misc by a mod... I'm starting to feel like i'm being picked on and i won't have it. I would like to hear what other peoples opinions are and if anyone else also feels the moderators are being unfair. I would also like my thread re-opened if that's possible. Thankyou all.

That's true but is the picture space being posted two seconds after the OP a bump?
and thanking someone?
#4
Not sure about the posts quoted as bumps, but it was far from a FS/FT thread, but a discussion thread that should've been in "Misc". Good job mods. :)
#5
thanking someone is...send them a pm to thank them or leave rep and a pm...dont post on the thread.
picture post is still a bump if you never use that post for pictures regardless of when it was posted in relation to the OP

agreed very much so a discussion thread.

i can never understand why you cant add everything you need to add in the first post, seems a bizzare way of having to do 2 posts to get across something you could have done in the 1st one :thinking:

I think AW got the picture post incorrect. If someone subsequently asked for a picture, then their request should've been counted as a bump.

My opinion is.. the mods were right to lock your thread bump1, bump2 etc

that applies as well, but im sure ive seen others penalised for making a post for photos but not using it.

Hi,

Sorry for the delay, however there is no need for the OP to get twitchy whilst awaiting a response, however we'll deal with the other issue directly with Loading.....

Meanwhile I'll confirm that the correct decision was taken to lock the thread, however the quoted posts may have led to some confusion. For the purposes of the OP and since it's public I'll quote the posts and let it be known where the actual bumps took place and the posts where we consider proxy bumps to have occurred.

pictures here


Reserved post - not required yet, so no bump should be counted. If a pic was posted elsewhere then that post would be the bump. However that scenario is irrelevant to this thread.

hmm, i have no idea about this warranty thing. I've just checked the seal and it's been broke(not by me). [COLOR=DarkRed]What's the requirements for the warranty?[/COLOR]


The above post is a response to a previous question. This would not normally be a bump, however as the OP is now asking questions regarding his item for sale, responses to this question will now be deemed as bumps. It's only a matter of time before this descends into a misc type chat. In order to prevent this happening in the future, the OP should be aware of the full facts relating to items for sale.

seal shows console hasn't been tampered with , basically meaning if the seals broke no microsoft repair

[COLOR=DarkRed]
Bump 1 - Proxy[/COLOR]

GAVtheRAV;6008525
Seal needs to be intact for warranty. If it's not then MS will assume the console has been modded/tampered etc. You do mean the seal on the console has been broken and not the seal on the box right?

[COLOR=DarkRed]
Bump 2 - Proxy[/COLOR]

ALICOM007;6008544
just stick a warranty sticker on and send it of.

[COLOR=DarkRed]
Bump 3 - Proxy[/COLOR]

GAVtheRAV;6008601
Where would one find a warranty sticker? And wouldn't MS pick up on the fact that someones stuck a fresh sticker over a broken one?

[COLOR=DarkRed]
Bump 4 - Proxy[/COLOR]

quosh;6008946
Obviously peel the old sticker off first m8!
You'll also need to make sure it's not been butchered at the back by someone trying to open it previously

Bump 5 - Proxy[/COLOR]

Loading.....;6008975
Yes the seal underneath the faceplate has been broke. Could anyone tell me where i'd find a seal? Thanks

[COLOR=DarkRed]
Bump 6 - Proxy.

More questions from the OP. Questions are normally raised by interested buyers, not sellers.[/COLOR]

bump 1

[COLOR=DarkRed]
Bump 9 [/COLOR]

Loading.....;6013719
bump 2

[COLOR=DarkRed]
Bump 10[/COLOR].

[COLOR=Black]The OP encouraged posts to their own thread, by means of asking questions. Advice here would be for the seller to do their homework before listing, perhaps raise a question in misc (albeit wait a further 7 days before listing).

Members posting in threads would normally be deemed to be threadspoiling if not participating in the sale. As the OP has instigated this it would be unfair to apply this rule to the current thread.

Finally, we don't always quote every bump used, sometimes it's just enough to highlight that more than 3 have occurred. Apologies for the confusion but I hope the above clarifies the situation.

I don't now what your instituating by "getting twitchy" but i can assure i won't sweat :)
It's clear that you and andywedge have different ideas on the matter as he clearly stated in the thread what he deemed as bumps... it seems someone hasn't been doing there homework or maybe someone else is studying to hard? I see what you saying about my questions but i can assure you that was not my intention, my intention was only to find out the answer to my question. You have gave me a better understanding of the situation but i still feel you need to give a bit more leeway not just to me but to everyone that make this website what it is....and that's not just yourselfs.

The twitchy reference was aimed at your multiple thread creations in order to get a response. The normal channel would have been to go via the "Contact Us" route and await a response.

You must bear in mind that every post on your thread(s) which has been deemed to be a bump in excess of the maximum 3 allowed, puts the very members you highlighted at a disadvantage as your thread promotes itself above theirs. I'm glad we share the same concerns.

Mods, whilst trying to be multi-functional, have their own dedicated areas to manage. AndyWedge's primary role is in deals, however he will lend a hand whenever time permits to other areas. Whilst the quoted post may have led to the confusion, continuing this discussion leaves you clutching at straws as the correct decision was taken to lock.

i've had a thread closed too cuz i replied to people in it, only twice mind you. My thread was only up like an hour. I'm not gonna mention one mod in particular's name but he is VERY lock thread happy. As for using the contact us thing, tried that, got no reply. To answer the original question, yes i think they're going a bit over the top. Only just lately though.

If i awaited a response it would have been an infraction and suspension for a few days for breaking a rule i didn't intentionally break. To your next comment...again i have not purposely over bumped any of my threads which i why i'm protesting so don't even try to make me look like the bad guy, "deal anarchy from the masses" sez it all :) and "i'm glad we share the same concerns"? i can picture you sitting there saying it:

Three other things:

1) i was not meant to take a dig at andywege, from dealing with him he SEEMED a decent guy,

2) i've copied this whole thread so you never know when it might pop up to haunt you :)

3) "clutching at straws" i don't take kindly to threats or facts as your probably say.

Good night!

I must agree that from what I've read on the forum the 'Contact Us' button rarely elicits a response.

Even when I PM'd you the other day aScottishBloke, that didn't get a response so I can see why the OP felt the need to start a thread.

I'd be grateful if the thread below could be reopened so that feedback can be left?

My reasons for locking are in the thread. There is no deal agreed that I can see for you to leave feedback. It's worth a read for anyone thinking mods are too tough. Far too many posts are demoted in a competitive forum due to the minority who shout loudest but comply the least.
