I believe the right ways to do it are: - Add substantial amount of new items, or - Price drop on the old items, or - Just add and let it be (changing your sig helps)

fok said it's his discretion. if you add an item an hour to bump, then seeeee ya. if after a day or two you add a few items, that's fine, BUT it's still his discretion.

Now to single him out only would IMO be a travesty. Either ban everyone from the same time frame as the banned guy or just let it pass this FINAL time.

Of course it your call ...

You sure are opinionated about everything on SF, and when you're not, you start threads looking to have others make up your mind on something.

Far be it from me to crap on a mod thread, and obviously it's your forum to do what you will, etc., etc.

But isn't "no bumping to answer questions" a little harsh? I mean, provided the guy is answering legitimate questions and is not using socks to game the system, I don't see how answering questions is all that bad. Sometimes a potential buyer might have a question whose public answer benefits everybody who reads the thread. Sometimes the same question gets asked repeatedly, and answering it publicly saves the headache of having to respond with the same answer to 50 PMs.

Just putting that out there. Not trying to be argumentative.

I've bought from stu00a and he's a very helpful seller with excellent shipping and communication. It would be a pity to have him banned. Someone mentioned that a 5% drop on a $5K item has the same effect as a 5% drop on a 7 dollar tie. I think that it's a little unfair, so maybe for $1K+ items the 5% drop rule could be reduced to, say, 2-3%?

Answering questions is a great idea - just do it by editing the original post.

Because sometimes sellers deliberately leave out details, like whether it's UK/US sizing or measurements/pictures, in anticipation of "answering" them later, and bumping his thread in the process.

So the solution is to allow answering these by modifying the original post or via PMs. That way, sellers who legitimately forgot details can still provide answers without bumping.

AB, I understand your point. Unfortunately, that was a rule that came about because people began to game the system - leaving out key information, etc... in their OP. We made the rule so that the system would work as fairly as possible.

For people selling $5K items, especially multiple items, a $50/week pinned thread is probably a good idea. Just think of the savings over regular price drops. Unfortunately, stu00a broke the rule nearly immediately after I posted the thread, and I can't overlook the fact that he disregarded a moderator thread at the top of the page that says "ATTENTION - READ THIS". If he feels it worth his while, he can pay the fine and we can all move on. Actually, I'll decrease stu00a's fine to a paltry $100, because I'm feeling generous. I'll PM him later today. If anyone feels like playing white knight, that can do so on my behalf.

He can edit his original post and answer the question.

I think it's a very fair system right now. I, for one, enjoy the B&S forum a lot and so far everything I bought here was excellent. I know that honest sellers should be protected and cherished, so I think we should all thank the moderators for making it a pleasant experience for us and support whatever decisions they take. I think they know a lot more than we do and can probably make a far better judgment call than we can.

That is why it is 'allowed' to answer such questions publicly...by editing the OP.

Eh,

1. more subfora -> harder to navigate as well as manage
2. there will be too many border line stuffs (tried once, shoes walked on carpet, new with shop wear, "look brand new", etc.) and that can confuse people too.

What saddens me is that the annoying self-bumpers and those who break the more reasonable and obvious rules have created a situation where unreasonable rules are being enforced, such as the ban on answering questions or dealing with 'thread shits'. It is often extremely useful - no, necessary - to return to your thread and add something by way of a new post, and I don't believe that doing so has any negative impact on the way B&S functions, especially if the self-bumpers are being dealt with properly.

I can understand that buyers might find it slightly easier if they don't have to scan past the same threads again and again to look for new additions, but the rule leaves the buyer/seller balance of convenience a little skewed IMO.
