yep looks good, does the job and doesn't give a free bump.
Although I guess you would need to PM the offender as they won't know you've edited it until someone else posts in that thread.
I didn't think of that :duh:
oh! and we need a duh! smiley
personally i think the whole bump rule is silly. has it really made this thread that annoying?
its never bothered me in the past, except when its people who screw people over and continue threads like crazy like.....well I shouldnt name names.
This is stupid guys.......why kill the bumps?

My work log
PMing every person that breaks the rules in that forum is ludicrous.
I agree that PMing every person is ludicrous.
I also believe that a standard needs to be set as to what to do.
I know that there are some mods that could take an action and no one would bat an eye at it. I also know that other mods could take the same action, and hell would be raised.
My comment that you quoted was spurred by your comment about how you just got tired of it, so you started deleting them. Yes, I agree that people should read the stickies, but under this same thought, just about every thread in the newbie section should be deleted as well.
Perhaps making someone read through the classifieds rules prior to posting would be a good solution?
Something like what has been mentioned for all new members to this board, only this applies to every new thread that is started in the classifieds section? Must read and agree to the classifieds terms before you can continue onto the post. Yes, many people will just click through without reading, but at least that way they are given the rules, right there in front of them.
Such as posts 3 & 4 in the following thread: FS: 250GB harddrive, case, BNIB Kicker L5
Granted, the extra comments are like freebie bumps, but they still clutter things up.
"It's a blessing . . . and a curse."
I think the bump rule is fine. And I think xBrady is spot on. They *SHOULD* already know the rules, and breaking *ANY* imo warrants a thread deletion. Do it 'till they can do it right. BUT we also don't need ***-hole posts when they do break the rules. I can remember the first time I sold something here, and esKALad was the biggest ******* in my FS thread. I didn't know any better, and didn't need an ******* to point it out to me. I probably would have been fine with a thread deletion and a simple PM saying please read the rules before you post.
The best resurrected frontend I've ever used, period.
In a world where people are dying of curable diseases and starvation every minute we all bicker over a silly issue of bumping a few threads on a silly forum where people put Pc's into cars which cost more than some families make in a year or more.
someone sensible please sort out the rules to be fair and just and allow some kind of moderate bump as, as I have already said, it is avery rare that people search the for sale section.
Why dont we have a policy where for sale adds only last 1-2 calendar months and then the forum deletes them? then there will be a lot less threads to search through, take up less forums space and why dont we have a separate wanted section and then sellers will ntoice the wanted adds more and be able to respond with an offer.
