I dont like the part where posts have to start with"WTS:" its too blah



I agree.

Also, the part about "threads may not be bumped to the top until a week after they have fallen off of the front page" is a big disappointment. I realize Arch is trying to prevent serial bumping, but a week seems much too long to keep any momentum. Speaking as one of the "little fish" that the guidelines are presumably trying to protect, I would have lost out on most of my sales if this had been in effect before.



I agree with both sentiments.




So do I.

I don't think a time limit should be put on the bumping of a thread, rather a number of bumps limit should be applied. Say for example three seller bumps after all other activity has ceased?

How about that all perceived violations are to be reported to the administrator for action, or to the creator for correction, and that any spams within the thread by forumites attacking the conduct (which, in fact, may turn out to be inaccurate) itself constitutes a rule violation.




How about we just tie-up and gag all of those free-thinking nogoodniks.

I love everything but the bump part. What constitutes a bump? The actual graemlin by the seller or someone coming along with a corny post to shoot it to the top? ON busy days, you could lose the front page in 5 minutes.




Obviously, correspondence within the thread, or the addition of books for sale to a thread cannot be construed as a bump, except by "incorigible recidivists"

Gratuitous bumps, meaning a post that says nothing more than... ??

If you post more books to your thread, bumping it back to the top, that's okay, right? Also, I believe the number of posts/page is user configurable, so we'd never have a standard for "front page."

I'd prefer some rule that says you can reply to your own final post once ("bump") but no successive bumps allowed. The "final post" is understood to be the latest post where a new book is being offered, or some real inquiry from a potential buyer is being answered.

But frankly, I'd do away with the bumping requirement altogether-- seems an invitation for the creation of shills to do the bumping, or log-rolling between forum members to keep their stuff on top.

Put me down for disliking the "WTS" label requirement as well.

I for one, don't think that "AVENGERS ASSEMBLE!" is corny . . .

= Great
= Good
= Huh?

1. Books must be CGC or raw only, or items directly related to comics.

So I can sell my old clothes in the other marketplace?

2. No spamming. Group your for sale items into as few threads as is reasonable. Attempts to take up front page real estate by creating multiple threads for no reason are not allowed.


3. It must be an exclusive board-only offer. If the book is offered for sale through another venue (ebay, dealer site, personal web site, etc.) then it should NOT be offered here. It should be offered in the Sales Advertising board.


4. Links to outside sites for any purpose involving purchasing the offered books are not allowed.
-Except for sig links right?

5. It must list specific books with purchase prices. It is acceptable to bulk price, and/or to note that package discounts may be available, but you must list a starting price that you WILL sell for.


6. List scans or information about the grade of the offered books.


7. List estimated shipping costs, times, and methods.


8. List acceptable forms of payment


9. Prompt responses must be made to buy requests made through the boards (posts or PMs).


10. Threads may not be bumped to the top until a week after they have fallen off of the front page.
How am I gonna know exactly when a week went by...?
This one should be dropped since it's way to easy to break when your buddies can bump your threads asking for scans or by making offers. Or you can add a new book to the thread everyday... How is this going to be inforced?

11.Thread title must start with "WTS:" and must give some indication of the types of items for sale.
I'm not even sure what WTS is... Want The Sale?
I use "For Sale".

My thoughts:

Keep 1 - 9 and drop 10 and 11.

More of a best practice but it would be great if there was a standard to posting follow-ups on sold items. I for one prefer doing business with sellers that will go back and update the first post in a thread and denote what has been sold. As a prospective buyer I don't want to have to go through 5 pages of flame wars or graemlin wars to figure out what still for sale.


Just my $0.02

Good point BUT after a certain amount of time you can't go back and edit a post (perhaps this could be changed?).
