  • The rules for classifieds are here: https://www.lfgss.com/conversations/1438­48/#6571218

    You can discuss them here as the other thread is locked.

    Enforcement is simply reporting stuff via PM to me.

    Repeat offenders will have sexual organs electrocuted (if they've set up the necessary interface and informed me of the web service I need to call)... but more likely I'll just ban them on the first offence.

  • may i ask why you have outlawed bumping?

  • It was part of the discussions for rules on classifieds.

    The rules don't do much except clarify that I'm not responsible for anything that goes wrong, and just codifies the etiquette so that new people know how to conduct themselves.

    As for bumping, there were quite a few suggestions, and I haven't outlawed it. What I've said is that you can't just bump for no reason.

    That you haven't sold it as quickly as you'd like isn't a good enough reason for a bump. Maybe the item is shit? Maybe it's over-priced? Maybe you failed to provide decent information or photos? Maybe you failed to provide a price?

    I don't mind bumping, but it has to be for reason. It's in your interest to sell something and I want to encourage you to spend the time to make a more compelling advert that inspires someone to buy. So it's penalising laziness rather than bumping, as you can bump providing you're adding something to the thread that helps it in some way. Good reasons to bump include; price drop, adding photos, adding background info, etc.

  • I've just refined the no bumping to specifically narrow it to for sale and trade adverts.

    Basically I don't want lazy one-line adverts being bumped to death by people. If you want to sell something, then SELL something.

    I doubt I'd even enforce the rules, well... the eBay adverts one I will... they just allow me to hit the serial offenders with a stick.

    fair enough

    you never fail to clarify things properly

  • Yup.
