I made a "for sale" post for Colossal Blizzard the other day in the "Tricks & effects for sale or trade" section. It had slipped down to the last page there, so before it fell off and I had to re-post, I added a comment to keep it active. I also added that I'd take off $3 if combined with any of my other listed items, so it wasn't just an outright "bump" either. Can someone please explain here (or PM me) why this was removed??? I have been buying and selling here for many years and this is the first time I can recall that this has happened.

Was it because I said it included a link to the instructions? That's the way it came to me (in a bundle of other items), with the card below.
Also, while I recognize that regular "bumping" is not permitted as it hogs the first page, is it acceptable to "bump" with no new info if your item is about to fall off and require a new post that would be on the top of page 1 anyway?

You didn't make your post "the other day" Topics in the let's make a deal forums are deleted 10 days from the date of the original post. Posting to keep the topic from falling off doesn't accomplish anything as the 10 day rule would still apply.

Posts that change the offer such as you offer of taking $3 off would be a legitimate post as it contributes to the topic and would not be considered a bump and neither would a link to the instructions. Any post that contains no new info just to keep the topic going is a bump and would be removed even if it falls within the 10 days.

This is not a new procedure and has been in place for several years. I hope this answers your question. If not, pm me and I'll try to explain a little more.
