Okay, what's with CCP Fallout's crusade against bumping threads in the Want Ads forum? All of a sudden he's going around locking threads for being bumped. As far as I know and as far as CCP Mitnal stated, bumping is allowed once per day, so what's with all this thread locking? Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm?

He realized his job at CCP is meaning
less and has resorted to full time Forum-duty.

Discussing moderation on these forums is not allowed. So I guess you will have another thread locked to add to your collection.

I believe there is an email address that you can send your questions to.

In the mean time, use a shill to bump your thread.

Why don't you post in eve general about it so he can start locking stuff here. Ever heard of email?

He locks threads that are being bumped every 2-3 days... with the following message:

"Massive bumping going on here, which is not allowed."

Lol. L2Moderate, noob.

Discussing moderation isn't ok.

Bumping thread without content isn't ok.

Bumping by the original poster without relative new content isn't ok.

Simple really Laughing

Fail thread is fail.

Forum bumping does not = good forum topic.

It's not a fail thread, I'm trying to understand what is going on with this new policy. It's not my fault there just happens to be a lot of trolls on the forums.

And fyi I did e-mail CCP, but sometimes you'll have better luck with communicating with CCP on the forums.

You are fail as the OP speaks of trading threads being locked because of bumping, trading threads aren't meant to be a "good forum topic" with nice little discussions, as its just a sale or purchase.

Had a quick look around and I think I found the thread that the OP was talking about.

He was very careful about keeping to the traditional 1 bump per day limit.

If there is a change in this policy, I think that it is appropreate for CCP to clarify that change.

I haven't done a search to see if the OP was maintaining multiple threads in that forum, which would be grounds for locking all but one, however if that was the reason for the lock, then that's the reason that should have been given, not a generic "too much bumping"

If there is going to be a change to the bumping policy, it would be nice if you got some feed back from those who use the forums.

For some of the trade forums (such as the Timecode Bizzare), more frequent bumping might be appropreate. For others, less frequent bumping might work better.

At the same time, it would really suck if you biased the WTB/WTS forums such that those with the most alts posting have the greatest advantage.

So, here are the rules for the sell forum, note the part about bumping and it explicitly says the thread owner can bump once per day.

What's hilarious is that this particular rule has a double asterisk next to it, presumably leading us to further information to spell out exactly what the rule means.

Except there's no matching double asterisk on the page.

Way to clarify Rolling Eyes
