    Just annoyed a good amount of threads that are cluttered with 'bumps'

    clearly TB rules state:

    - No more than one bump per 24 hour period
    - All previous bumps MUST be deleted

    even with this being stated, there are threads that have 20+ replies but 75% of those are bumps and very cluttered.

    so should these threads be flagged??

    appreciate the info, thanks!!

    one thing i noticed too that a couple TB'ers are doing, which is great since it keeps the thread clean. is bumping it, then they "uncheck" open to prevent inadvertent bumps or chat in the thread..... although some TB'ers do the same thing after an item sold (seeing the last post as being sold), but mistakenly missed to mark the subject head "sold" and still has a FS header. guess some type of linearity would be great-but i know it be asking too much :angel:

    So after having a couple convo's with fellow TB'ers that had multiple bumps. It seems there were two problems:
    1. they didn't realize it was part of the bumping rules
    2. they didn't know how to delete a post; either using a web browser or the TB app.

    Refer to Thread bumping rules:

    http://www.talkbass.com/threads/thread-bumping-policy-please-read-before-posting.444607/


    For a web browser its just a matter of pointing out that there is a delete option underneath ever post made:

    i assisted them with a small tutorial with the app so i might as well post it here too:

    STEP 1: Select (previous bump) post you want to delete

    STEP 2: Select "More"

    STEP 3: Select "Moderate"

    STEP 4: Select Delete
