Default Bumping Threads - no more than once per week

In fairness to everyone, we have had to impose a new rule on bumping, because while everyone would like to have their ad the top of the first page, it is not fair to other members. We also have had people bumping several ads at a time.

So: Henceforth, the rule is that you may not bump a thread/ad more than once per week (ie. 7 days) between the date of the last post (your's or other's posts) by posting in the ad. Bumping also includes moving the thread to the top by statements such as "all orders shipped, PM sent, bump, TTT, thank you, conversation posts not directly involved with the sale of the boat, or other bump-like posts, etc." Having friends post in your ad for the purpose of moving the ad to the top will also not be tolerated, and will be considered the same as bumps.

Continual bumping, or bump-like posts will result in your ad being pulled/removed from public view for a day or 2, or more, depending on the number of bumps, bump-like posts, etc.

Conversation posts not involving the sale of the boat should be done via PM, email, or in a forum outside of the Trading Dock.

We thank everyone for their understanding of these rules that we feel are only fair so every member will have an equal opportunity for their ad to be seen on the first few pages of the forum.

How do you bump your thread/ad?

I do apologize, I didn't intend to post my ad for the 2005 Contender twice. I was just trying to bump it because the add was 7 days old.

Does a price update count as a bump? What if I want to include something with the purchase of my for sale item?

7 days is a long time...it should be 4

How about answering a posted question, does that count as a bump?

Only if you put the word bump in it.
So don't answer questions pertaining to bumpers.
Oh damm I think I just bumped.
Oh shoot I did it again talking about how I just bumped
Oh lord please stop me.
Sowwy.

considering how prolific some vendors are on here with posting new products or replying to posts or whatever it might be, a single for sale ad can easily get pushed down a page a day. After 7 days, lowly ol' John Doe trying to sell his used VHF radio finds himself 5,6,7 pages deep.

7 days is way too long, particularly for non-vendors.
