now that it's been brought up, is there a policy about how many times an ad can be bumped up? There was a particular user (no names) a couple of months ago breaking a single car and had individual ads for each of the parts which got bumped every three days or so. Grand once or twice but after weeks of seeing the same rash of ads coming to the top of the for sale forum with the only replies to them being the seller's bumps, there must come a point where it's just seen as a nuisance to others. When posts are bumped to the top someone elses ad is being pushed down. If the parts were desirable/saleable they'd have been snapped up or if someone was looking for a particular part we have a Wanted section and a search function for the For Sale section.

Sellers please don't bump up your threads every other day, bumping them now and then is fine, everyone does it. Just don't take it to extremes.

I remember something about a certain number of days, like once a week was mentioned a few years ago, but Im not sure if that was added to the rules.

Ya remember that alright, I would think every 5 days or so only if its off the front page. If its on the front page and they are bumping it, they will be warned and deleted if they keep it up.
