Changes to B&S discussion - SOLD BUMPS ARE BANNED - Page 22

post #316 of 328
I already passed it forward, but I'll plug it again. Honestforum's B&S section sort of goes in the direction of 1. single item listings 2. somewhat standard titles 3. ability to see pics, and lists categories like asking price, date listed, etc which one can sort by 4. subforums for various types of clothes

Yeah, we considered that style, but some people like the ability to list multiple items together. So we considered both that and a thread-style listing. But as it turns out, neither way is going to pay for itself, so we will see what we can get with what we can afford.

Sorry to drudge this up. but I can't think of an efficient way to get through all 316 posts here. What's the final ruling on "SOLD" bumps? Allowable or not? What if I finally took some decent pics which will change the listing in a big way and offer better info to buyers?
post #319 of 328
No sold bumps. New pics/info can be edited into the OP. No replies by OP except for price drops or new items. If your thread is too old to edit, PM one of us and we will delete it for you and you can start a new one, assuming you drop the price.

another annoyance is when people who are obviously buddies on here comment on how great each others listed items are on each others threads,or have a full out convo instead of taking it to PM.kinda unfair they get a shitload of bumps because they are in a clique (lets face it there is one on here,nothing wrong with that but taking advantage of it,thats is wrong)

Maybe this has been addressed, but why do buyers send a PM to the seller, then post a reply to the seller's thread saying "I pm'ed you!" I don't get it.

To let the rest of the viewing forum that the item is most likely "claimed".

OK, but this could hurt the seller, in the sense that the PM in question might be a lowball that gets rejected, and if other people think it is claimed, then they might not try to buy it. On the other hand, it might hurt the buyer because they are indicating their interest in the item, thus potentially flushing out other, possibly higher, offers. So why not just PM?

I for one, would never say PM sent without having every intention of buying the item at the sellers listed price, and immediately. I think thats kind of the general vibe of saying "PM sent".

+1. I have sold many items here on B&S and I usually get a few of the 'PM sent' thread bumps. Most of the times the 'PM sent' member doesnt buy the item and while I do appreciate the bump, it may hinder the selling process if other members see the message and think the item has already been claimed.

Are price drops on all items required for a bump?
post #327 of 328
I'm bumping this just because!!!
