    TB rules in the Classified Section specify that you may bump your ads, but only under these conditions :

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

    The reason for these rules are
    a) Sellers have abused 'bumps' in the past
    b) Reducing 'clutter' in for sale threads

    A bump is not just a post that says “bump” or “Monday morning bump” or “bumpaboo”, but ANY POST that does not feed the thread with relevant information. Examples include, but are not limited to:

    - “C’mon guys, this is a wonderful bass!”
    - “Get it quick or I’ll put it on eBay”
    - “No-one, really ?”
    - “PM replied”

    Adding of pictures is a valid reason to bump your forsale thread, as long as it falls within the above rules - no more than once per 24 hours and delete prior bumps beforehand.

    Violation of these rules will result in an infraction. Repeat violations will incur double points.

    This is starting to get carried away again. PLEASE, before you bump you thread, DELETE your previous thread bump(s).

    It greatly reduces clutter in your thread!

    To clarify, any non-relevant bump must come 24 hours after the thread owner's last post in their ad (whether that last post is adding relevant info or a non-relevant bump), not 24 hours from their last non-relevant bump.

    These ads are not discussion threads. Responding to another poster in a discussional manner that does not add relevant sales information to the thread still counts as a bump.
