    This is the perfect example of a bump. Doing this will get you a warning/infraction.

    You do not need to create a new thread. Just update your thread with informative information.

    So, nump with class. Does it need to be more than a restatement with a verbage change?

    In my opinion if your if you are selling an item and it has been up for a day or two you probably need to drop the price. Which would be an informative post.

    I think it's because for the 3 years that forums have been up for, bumping was never strictly enforced. However, the problem extrapolated in AL because here, everybody is bumping their threads every 3 hours.

    If you look in the PL section, that is not the case.

    If it's enforced now, that's great. At least now I have some more information about an item that I may be interested in.

    Most folks don't post a price in these threads, they just post that they are selling the item and hoping to get an offer. So if nobody responds after a day, they usually bump it to remind everyone that the item is still for sale. As many people don't read the forum every day, their hope is that someone who did not see the post yesterday will see it today. I'm not sure what the correct course of action would be in this case. I suppose just a repost if you cannot bump the old one. I used to just bump my post by saying "still for sale!". But if that is no longer allowed I would just repost. Either way, I do not do it every 3 hours. I usually wait at least a full day.

    If the item is still for sale after 24 hours you are welcome to post an update in your thread stating that you are still selling/buying the item.

    Cool! 24 hour bumps sound reasonable. It was getting really bad with all the bumping lately, and this can hopefully restore some order in the traders market.

    Just by doing a quick glace in the traders market. I see order being restored!

    We might be dividing the Arcane Traders Market forum into a buying and a selling section. That should also cut back on the need to want to bump.

    Given the traders market sections' popularity, this sounds like a great idea!

    Not to fragment it too much, but maybe a seperate section with 'price checks' could be useful too. If people want to have an idea of what an item is worth, they could post in that section.

    In the long run, such a section could be really extensive with a lot of historic price info on potentially rare stuff, while in the short run it would prevent people posting price checks in both buying and selling sections.

    A seperate thread for this could, in general, also encourage people to post a price check on the forums. I'm often asked what an item is worth and when I don't know, I tell them to post a price check in the traders market. A clear seperate section could lower the threshold for less frequent/newer forum users and give them a clear spot on the forums to ask their question(s) about prices in.

    In some gaming forums, I've seen a simple price check thread that is stickied. Easier on the server.

    So, I won't get into any trouble if I 'bump' my thread every 24 hours? Am I correct?
