We have recently had to warn a number of people for their inappropriate bumping of threads in this forum. Please remember that ONLY the character who started the thread can bump a thread and ONLY once per day. "Friendly bumps" are not allowed.

is a bump considered 24 hours after the initial post? or 24 hours after the most recent post by the author?

A bump may occur once every forum day. If the days on the posts are different, that's good enough. It doesn't matter if one is at 23:59 and the next is at 00:00, as long as the day is different it's allowed.

About initial posts and bumps (from here):

Starting a topic at 23:58
Bumping the topic at 23:59 AND
Bumping the topic at 00:01 are all allowed.

Initial post is not a bump, so you can make one bump after initial post within this day.

"Friendly bumps" - this can be a malicious competitor, not a real friend! What you think do ??? 24 hours lock the topic, for innocence author ???[I only make note for you, i am not visit this post more ..]

That's kind of crazy. I bump people I don't know for nice toons. Having your sale go all the way back to the 4th page in one day doesn't get many looks.

Therefore, some people won't get enough money for their toons.

Therefore, some people won't sell their toons.

Therefore, CCP won't get money from character transfer.


If you guys want to put me on your marketing team, drop me a mail. Plenty more where that came from.

answering question for interested party is considered as a bump?
and how do i prevent accidental bump?
and how bump works? should i type 'bump"? to get bumped?
there is too much misplaced info in this website which tells you nothing
would be great to haw step by step java for every known question it would improve time and response time for CS representative or GMs (lol I'm not even sure that I'm not going to get spanked for this post)

Guys,

The current bumping rules are located here.

There's also an extension to the Rules thread for this forum, which is located here.

That is:

25. This forum is for buying and selling of characters, you may reply to the threads with bids or questions regarding the character/s. All other posts are off topic and will be removed. Posts of this nature will be counted as your daily bump.


Hope this helps.

CCP/ISD/GM,

Hypothetical situation:

Day 1: I make a char sale thread for character "Joe Bloggs"
Day 2-9: I bump the thread
Day 10: I write "Thread closed" in thread title, and write "Thread Closed" in the OP of that thread.
Day 10: I make a new thread for character "Joe Bloggs"

Is this an acceptable procedure for making a new thread to replace the old one, and if not, what is the acceptable procedure for making a new thread?

As long as the new thread is made 24hrs after the previous threads last bump its ok, though why would you want to make a new thread for selling the same char ?

I have done this too on occasion...

I can see where it might cause some issue if one person with tons of alts would bump one of their sales to the point that they almost monopolize the bazaar, but there's not really anything wrong (IMHO) with seeing a nice toon for sale and giving them a small bump on occasion as long as it's not overdone, or abused to the point that it's questionable.

just my 0.02 isks though...
