    Finally, the days of years-old threads being bumped by "Is this still for sale?" are behind us!

    TalkBass Classifieds: Bumping Your Thread | TalkBass.com

    FYI to the devs: I went to one of my old Classified threads and poked around the Bump Controls menu and found the Bump Stats page:

    http://www.talkbass.com/up-thread/

    The copy on that page is pretty awkward (grammar issues abound); I imagine it won't be a commonly seen page, but a once-over would go a long way toward matching the generally high quality of the rest of the site.

    Thanks TB devs and admins!

    Love the new bump method. TGP has had this for a little while and I always like it. Cleaner threads, easier to bump.

    So is it still against policy to bump more frequently than 24 hours between bumps? How do you tell when you bumped last?

    I'll jump in and answer based on my understanding. Someone correct me, if needed.

    You can't bump more frequently now... it won't let you. You can tell how long it's been if you scroll down like you were adding a new comment... there is a timer. Once the 24 hours is up, the button is enabled.

    Also at the top of the original post, you can bump thread or look at bump history to see how long it's been.

    Hope that helps...

    Also of note, one last thing TGP does that is cool is let you bump within list view. Would be cool if TB had this too so you wouldn't have to open a thread to bump it.

    (I hope I don't offend Admins by posting about TGB. It's so weak in bass gear and discussion, it's really no threat, but please delete this comment if needed).
