I cant' help but think that this is a problem that software should be responsible for, not moderators.

But, of course, there are probably no forum software packages that so this, so . . . yeah. Have fun.

Are potential buyers allowed to make comments/ask questions about items without getting banned?

Yes as long as the seller himself is not bumping the thread or responding to the buyer's questions within the thread (in the form of another post that is).

This. I just forum-banned 5 posters:

GramSana
BlueEggs
chris_n
abeauty
juice827

100 years apiece. The "NO BUMPS" rule is stated right in the description of the subforum, and then in the pinned threads.

The abeauty banning was fast. I saw it at the top, looked through the thread, noticed that he bumped multiple times without any price drops, proceeded to press the exclamation mark, when I got the window that stated that the thread was no longer specified or whatever.

Wher do these dus come from? I've never heard of anyone on this list nor any prior list of banhammer recipients. I can't imagine anyone will be missing them

That sucks, I think they were real posters. RIP

I strongly support this action by the mods and hope it does actually give you guys some revenue.

Do this. The only way to keep this up is for the users to be more persistent about signaling offenders with the 'report post' function. SF moderation doesn't have the manpower (like Fok and Matt have said) to enforce the rules expansively by themselves.

Just an idea--and mods, obviously feel free to shoot this down--but I think users (not sellers) should take a little more initiative in giving out bumps. For instance, if based on past experience you think someone is a great seller, give him a bump if his latest sale is quickly disappearing. A useful way of doing this would be to say right in the sale thread that the person is a good seller. The seller feedback is great and all, but it's such a huge thread that it's tough to find out quickly if someone has left feedback on a particular seller. Or if someone is offering a really nice item for a great deal, and you think other SF users could benefit from the thread getting bumped to a more visible spot, give the seller a bump.

Doing this keeps the cream at the top, so to speak. It could also help a little with the practice of sellers having to inflate their initial prices knowing that they'll have to keep offering drops to keep their thread near the top. Of course, this would put more responsibility in the hands of the forum members--meaning its up to the members not to just start handing out bumps to their friends.

most people already do this, so no real need for anything official.

Iwhelan actually paid a reduced fine, and is back. Mbrand seemed to have a good attitude, so I may offer him a reduced fine as well.

It's legit unless we think that you are gaming the system - for example, a brand new item every day, or something like that.

Really, I don't care 2 shits about the revenue from this. It's peanuts. Maybe it'll feed our editorial crew a meal during our coverage of men's market or something. What I'd really like is for people to realize that we are serious about posters following the rules and decreasing our workload (which is not peanuts.)
