Default Bumping threads and Conversation Posts

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). Bumping includes moving the thread to the top by statements such as "all orders shipped, PM sent, bump, TTT, thank you, 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 item should be done via PM, email, or in a forum outside of the Trading Dock. Yes, we all agree this is a nice (whatever), etc., but lets keep the "Nice ****, I love this ****, I have one, What are you getting next, GLWS, Bump, etc." comments off the ad. If you want to discuss this item please start a thread in a forum outside the Trading Dock, and lets keep this thread about the For Sale ad. If you want to post in the ad, please post only questions about the item that are related to the item being sold and keep in mind that the Trading Dock forums are not discussion forums, so if you are not a potential buyer with legitimate questions or someone with answers to posted questions, then please post elsewhere or send the seller a PM.

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