what thread? That does seem strange though sassie...



you see it alot, mods locking and asking for proof of receipt etc,etc, then unlocking yet still no extra info added, so two bumps for nothing really

If the reason for the temp lock is not obvious from the details on the thread, then yes, it would be helpful to people if the mod stated what has been confirmed.

As for the bumping, imo its largely irrelevant and a completely moot. On my "discussed" tab there are 20 threads.....16 of those have been 'bumped' or replied to within the last 1 minute, given that most people will spend somewhat more than 1 to 2 minutes reading a thread, responding, or simply viewing elsewhere then by that time the 1st page of threads on the "discussed" tab have changed.

This is indeed what i am referring to, as for the bumps they just seem pointless to be put back to page one twice without the op using their 3 bumps, so infact giving them 5, yet still no extra information added leading to more free bumps

This is interesting as I've had the odd intervention from a mod and they have stated clearly that their intervention counted as 1 of the 3 bumps available to my thread.

However, this is a classic example of certain rules not being clearly articulated and applied consistently to everyone. :-(

Oh right, i have seen mods intervention and have also seen mods state this is classed as a bump, another mod discretion thing no doubt

There has been numerous suggestions for the fs boards that would eliminate so much of the hassles there, and yet they are never implemented, i know at the end of the day it is up to admin but surely members voices, concerns, ideas should be listened to and reasons given for not implementing our ideas

Its dependant on the clarification (from what I have seen).

If you were at fault for the lack of information its a bump.

If its a receipt request I believe thats not.

Maybe wrong.

Then surely on opening the mod should either edit the op to add receipt is available, or whatever was asked for

It wasnt surrounding a lack of information. It was surrounding other peoples replies like, "are you willing to post first, are you open to offers (despite the thread listing clearly stating that It wasnt open to offers or trades)".....

I asked the mod to remove the replies, and they intervened to state on the thread that the actions of the other replies was unfairly bumping the thread. The mod also stated that as they intervened then the mod reply would be counted as 1 of the 3 bumps.

Can you link. So I can see what your exactly on about.

A link would be appreciated. I can't think of any situation where anyone replying to a mod question of further info from a potential trader ever being deemed as a bump.

With the obviolus excceptions of not posting a pic in a reserved post (there maybe others, but happy to review).

Not a bad idea. It's something we try to do, if not obvious e.g. pics. Other items of info such as an ebay id can't be disclosed unless the OP agrees.

However I'm sure it's not always obvious, hence the thread being created. I'll bear it in mind.

Thanks

obviously for ebay id i wouldnt have made the thread, but for things like reciepts then surely they should be added, and if not then why reopen the thread if they cant give what was asked for:?

Thanks Sassie, I know that, you know that, it was to alert others that might not have.

Taking the scenario of the receipt. If the thread was locked, mod requests but OP fails to provide. In this case the thread will remain closed. However if we've failed to relay that info in the thread, then it's up to any buyer to request if in any doubt. Having said all that, that would automatically bump up the thread, so I get the point. We'll make sure that all requests for info that are not personal can be displayed in the thread. That's our intention always, so if not done in the past - apologies.

Hope that helps.

Understandable, it was yourself that dealt with it. If I come across the link I will be more than happy to post the link. I was airing my experience on the OPs topic thats all.

[COLOR="Blue"]good point

i still think the fs/ft forum should be a list like avforums, on new/discussed list one fs/ft/wanted ad takes up my whole screen, its really unecessary and if it was a list you could fit a lot more threads on page 1 eliminating a lot of bumping issues, and surely more threads on a users pc screen can only be a helpful/good thing[/COLOR]

Smeagol,

Have you considered using text view ?

That way you can have your listings in the desired format
