i consider that to be 4 bumps as 1 is direct answer after the 3main ones. edit ok maybe 5 as all were 'non posts'
perhaps all answers should be edited into first post (or post#1 where pics would go) replying to comment numbers

How can a Bump be classed as a reply to someone's question ?

Don't think that it was in this case - there are 5 bumps ignoring the first reply by the OP anyway, but in general if its a question about information that either should have already been in the OP, or an off-topic question that isn't relevant to the thread, its probably going to be considered a bump...

Slightly harsh imo. I have seen much more excessively bumped threads not locked.

5 bumps yes.
Erm... no, 4 bumps most and thats being strict.

hmm the post was quite clear i wanted a a htc wildfire in new condition, a person asked if there was a desired network, there wasnt, as there wasnt one in the op, i replied saying so (followed by a lot of waffle), a person asked if i had considered a san fran, i replied i had (followed by a lot of waffle)... a person suggested a cheap place i could find it, though after searching it myself i could not find it at the price stated, i thanked them for the post prior to searching by edting a post making sure not to bump, but followed by asking them how they got that price in a seperate post afterwards

this final reply i did seperately for a reason as it highlights in the persons threads they have been active in there profile so they would have known i replied and could subsequently update me on the info they originally provided.. i thought it was fair

tbh re reading the whole thign again i have changed my mind, i think i was a bit hard done by... i think waffle was my enemy! because i elaborated quite a bit and went off topic they have been considered proxy bumps when in fact each of the first two posts simply answer the questions i was asked, one of which was slightly off topic through not fault of my own

i wonder if i will change my opinion after reading it again lol, its a shame mods dont get back to you very often when you ask them questions though

It was this post that took you over the bump limit. Simplest solution for you would have been to create a Deal Request. Clearly you moved the focus away from a for sale/wanted thread. We fully appreciate the fact that members do wish to assist others in their request, however in order to be fair to others, we can't permit posts which are not directly related to the purpose of your listing.

You could have considered a pm to the member responding or showed your appreciation via the 'like' function. Whilst you are not always in control of other members posting within your thread, you do have to take an element of responsibility for encouraging the thread to drift off topic.

I hope it hasn't spoiled your experience of the site too much and you can appreciate our reasons for the thread closure.

Tommy, Members have the ability to delete their own posts therefore your response now looks a bit out of sync. You could always quote to avoid such an instance, but the post you are referring to was hopefully deleted by the member after a period of reflection. Cheap defamatory shots at a mod aren't really welcome though, but as always, there is a tiny minority who abuse the spirit of free speech without reflecting upon the responsibility associated with their comments.

Cheers for getting back to me ASB, i appreciate it, it did get a little distracted but i like discussing things in general (such as this thread for instance), so i fear my own nature is against me, in hindsight should have PM'ed but live and learn ey!

i would say in reality such things are common place amongst wanted threads which while other people post the main intention still remains on the OP trying to find a person selling said item

cheers
