why was my thread closed

supposedly i over bumped it. from what i can see i bumped it once? i've messaged col but no answer as of yet. am i wrong in thinking this is unjustified?

hotukdeals.com/ite…e=3

col replied and said that these 3 were the bumps:

I think it is a bit harsh considering that people were still enquiring about items and trades and what have you.

how do you "bump" something?

Yeah, I think it was a bit harsh. I can only really see two bumps there, the rest is just answering questions or replying to banter..

looks like they counted your replies as bumps, but i can only see the one obvious bump.

Have to agree. Most of Ace's posts were quick follow ons rather than wait an hour then answer to bump.

I'm with you guys........seems the banter was taken as obvious bumping,which I do not think it was!

Bump - Bring Up My Post

By posting in a thread, it moves it up to the top of the list of discussed threads.

So you can bump your thread by just posting in it. In the FS/FT forum you are allowed to answer questions, but you can only bump your thread intentionally twice.

was i in the wrong nightswimmer? if i am then by all means i'll apologise to col and everyone else here for wasting their time.

*shrug* I guess there is a fine line between answering questions and banter (which could be seen as bumping). I guess in Col's eyes you crossed that line. :oops:

Personally I think the 2 bump rule is too strict and a bit of leaway for niceties would be good, but then I didn't write the rules.

oo u going to doghouse.

cheers =)

It's a confusing avatar lol

No, there was only one maybe you could say two bumps but defo no more.

A bump is something that doesnt add any value and is said for no sake, responding to comments is not a bump.
Very poor decision to lock it

You moan, I just nearly jumped out of my skin as I knew I hadn't posted on this thread after the doghouse pics!!!! Thought some ****** had hacked my login details :lol:

adminge has it in for you :-P

Did col actually clarify which posts were classed as bumps?

Banned

nazi mods etc

That could be rather offensive proximo if one of them is infact german/ of german origin.

Original Poster

i edited the thread title and its got the 1's he says are bumps. im starting to think they're gunning for me =(

Too many av's to fit into 19.5kb. It's starting to look a bit dodgy on the quality.

It's in there!

You must have blinked - it's in there! :thumbsup:

Looking through...

The first one wasn't a bump, the double post was obviously as a response to Kippy's edit of the previous post.

The second one is 50/50

The Third was a bump.

Still only makes a possible 2 bumps though :thinking:

why? Not all germans were nazis in fact your post implies that anyone of German descent was associated with Nazi ideology, thats pretty racist

Hi Ace Hayward, as I mentioned via PM irrelevant posts are the equilivent of bumping. Therefore a line has to be drawn to avoid making it unfair on other sellers.

It may seem harsh, but most of it was banter and as such kept it prominent in the FS/FT forum, easy for others to follow suit.

Thought Col might have been more perverse and locked this thread after his last comment

Couldn't you have just deleted them as "thread spoiling"?

I didn't consider this as thread spoiling as much of the 'banter' was by the OP.
