Do listings ever "expire" if they aren't sold or modified?

I would say you should close your listings and start fresh. (You can close them yourself).

CHANGES TO THE NEW BUYING AND SELLING FORUM
OK guys, much work has gone into actively incorporating your feedback to making the B&S a better place. Below are a list of the proposed changes that will most likely take effect within the next week or so, to let anyone who has invested in upgrades under the current system fairly get their moneys worth for what they paid for. Thanks again to all of you who replied here, or PM'd us with your suggestions. They were all read and taken into account for what we propose below.

Just as the old system, you can see when a new thread is listed, and reinvigorates that sense of urgency that was missing from this version. You will get that same butterflies-in-the-stomach feeling when you see an aportnoy thread or a whusurdadi thread go up and there are 0 replies and 1 pageview.

Can I get "butterflies-in-the-stomach feeling" as my custom title smile.gif

It will be not unlike the system now, but you will be able to buy a 1 day subscription for a once every 24 bump. Or, you can by a 2 day subscription for an every 48-hour bump, etc....

Of course, you may also buy week long subscriptions that would give you a slight discount. Would also save you the trouble of going through the process time and time an time again.

I may put in highlighted posts in some of the packages, but all users will be limited to 15 threads. That is really the big difference.

the changes sound GREAT. good work guys, hopefully this will be a turning point in the evolution of this forum into the most awesome internet forum ever!!

 

about the BB editor, it sucks, i find myself having to post a B&S thread and then editing it in rich text editor, why does the BB editor make it easier to reply?

Because the quotes from a BB editor generated post show up in an easy format to break up, etc... The rich text shows up as just that, and it's a pain to break up to quote to answer questions, etc...

Also, any changes to fix white space, etc... will not work for rich text generated entries.

Don't wait. This is a never ending cycle, assuming that the premium membership process still works. My 7 days ran out and I am renewing this morning.

In the future (great work and changes worship.gif) can we look into longer membership cycle options - i.e. monthly?

I am often away without much notice and a monthly membership would be easier to manage.

One question, is there something in place to prevent sellers from deleting a sale thread and then starting a new thread of the same item/items in order to bump without paying the bump fees?

I've actually already seen someone do this.

So much for that plan. I paid Huddler an hour ago and I still get this when I try to enter a new listing: You are only allowed to have 7 open classifieds. Close some of your open classifieds until you are under the limit again. ffffuuuu.gif

If we can't renew, then at least disable the mechanism which accepts payment. Looks like an ebay day.

Sorry. I'm getting this looked at immediately. It's a glitch, a bug, not a feature. I promise.

Indeed. Kindly report. Someone is going to get the banhammer today. I've had a long enough week without fools pissing me off deliberately. Poll. How much should I fine him to get his privileges back? The minimum number is $500 (that's right there in the rules).
