    Yeah I see it now. That's a bit of a pain in the ass, considering I now need to a) remember when my bump time is and b) bump a bunch of individual threads. They need some sort of "bump all my classifieds at once" button. I do like the ads in the sig, although I wish it randomly scrolled through all of them rather than just displaying 3.

    Damn, raw MIJ T000s would be pretty boss. I like my MIJ S002s, but I definitely wish I could get a pair with a smaller leg opening and the same heavy denim, button fly, &c.

    You will anyway. I'm just going to set myself a reminder to bump everything every sat A.M. so there will still be a wall of my stuff when I do that. It'll just take me longer to do.

    Once people get used to it and B&S gets more popular this new bumping system is going to suck. The old way was efficient in that you had to "pay" for a bump with an accompanying price drop, so those items were more likely to sell and the listing deleted. In the new system, there is less of an incentive to drop prices, so you're going to have ever-increasing numbers of items listed at once that can be bumped weekly without price drops. The front page will be clutted with items at prices that have been passed over repeatedly.

    This is already what's happening though. If you have several items to sell chances are you'll list them roughly at the same time which means they'll all be bumpable at the same time (and bumped at the same time by the seller for convenience sake).

    Previously, people would start items at artificially high prices knowing that they might have to drop the price down a few times to bump before they found a buyer.

    Well, it's pretty clear when somebody is selling bits of their personal closet (ie. "NDG, BoO, Quoddy") and when somebody is using the market as a free store (ex: "80 Zegna ties just added! 8/13")

    you have obviously never spent enough time in the hood. Pimp limp is ideal.

    The trick with a limp is to accessorize, flesh out the narrative.

    Pimp limp works too.
