    Should there be a limit on the amount of times somebody can keep posting the same domain name for sale?

    They are using a clitch on the forum that enables you to keep deleting previous posts so it looks like the name as been mentioned once previously.

    When in fact they have bumped the post 30 times!

    Simple use the ignore button. I haven't seen these .com posts in about a year now.

    Thank you, Sam. I have asked Felix (@Admin) to look into this. The user in question is a very polite Acorn member. And, as he is a family as well. If the bumping is more than 1x/day or sales threads are posted in wrong categories, we will educate the user :) .. no need to chop heads on Monday morning :)

    Let us stay positive and friendly :)

    Great Monday all!!

    The forum has a category for com domains, bumping once a day is allowed and most of you actively use this option, there's an option to ignore a member (not see his posts).

    So... WHERE is the problem?

    I would argue that very few members use the 'daily bump' allowance that you describe. Most auction posts usually have 2/3 bumps at most when on a 7 day auction.

    THE problem would be if most members bump their own threads once a day the sections would start to look ridiculous. Some members might argue that there is absolutely no need to bump their threads daily as they respect etiquete and I give credit to those members that show consideration for others.

    I understand you and I am thankful to you and others who respect etiquette, but when entering public space we can expect that everyone follows rules, not always etiquette. Unfortunately, in real life, we don't have such an option, but here on the forum we have a magic "ignore" button - one click and you do not see that person's posts.

    It may be time to realize that there are some things in your life over which you have no power. :p:D

    To not offend anyone, that's my testing account. Sometimes I need to test features as a member, not an admin.

    What I find surprising is that someone would keep trying to sell a domain over and over again for months and months for a paltry $100. Surely it would be better to just stick it on a domain sales platform for fixed price at $100 and then concentrate on more profitable activities.

    ... from the other side, comments like this can make long-standing members feel like you are devaluing their feedback solely for the benefit of a member that only posts and bumps their .com domain sales (on a UK domain focussed forum), bringing zero value to the forum you bought, and we provide the content for.

    Constructive feedback is valid in all forms and should never be brushed aside and told to "move on".

    Your constructive feedback has hurt my feelings. Stop making valid points and eloquently expressing your opinion. Move on or I'll call the Acops to admonish you.
