i think 1 bump a week would be even better to be honest.

I have to agree that 48 hours is far too much and the ensuing 'you bumped too early' posts acting as a bump themselves will certainly lower the tone for me.

I think you have to be careful with rules (think back to the old Cubase board regime) ... Personally I think the MP works great currently apart from too many posts from a single individual, but even that doesn't push any of my buttons.

I have to agree that 48 hours does indeed seem far too long when one is abiding by the regulation and (many) others aren't.

If everybody were following along, I think 48 hours would be fine, but with lack of mod-policing or an automated bump system, I don't think this works very well so far.

The one topic rule leads to subjects like "FS lots of plug-ins" which is ... suboptimal.

Maybe a system where people can enter in their profile what they are selling or want to buy, and they get a message when they get a match?

I'd be happy to pay KVR £1 for every successful transaction this way.

Or automatically add 'time since last bump' in the subject line, to help self-regulation :)

I'm leaning towards a Market Place category (below the Main Forums and above the Off Topic forums), rather than subforums now.

  • Buy & Sell (All Private Sales ONLY)
  • Product Announcements, Sales & Promotions (All Commercial Soundware, Plugins & Apps, incl. Group Buys)
  • Competitions, Contests & Giveaways
  • Services For Sale
  • Member Music Releases (For Sale)

The main forums (instruments, effects, etc.) were originally intended to be for users to discuss plug-ins, not as places for sales pitches, so this would move sales topics to their own forum.

Agree 24 hour bumps would be better that 2 days! Seems thats what everyone else wants?

It'd still make it broad in terms of "member releases" rather than "member music releases". member releases could be music related, but it coult be tutorials, books, DVDs, a movie where they were heavily involved in, etc. Maybe it could also offer "free releases" that would otherwise get easily overlooked in the other threads (OT music related, etc).


Don't know what to think of the "competition/contest/giveaway part other than it being another news alloy?

Etiquette

Topics & Bumping
Do no post multiple topics in this forum. If you have several things to sell or trade (FS/FT) or want to buy (WTB) you must put them in a single topic or wait until one is sold / bought before starting another topic for a different item (to clarify: you may have no more than one active selling and one active want-to-buy topic at a time).

You may reply to your topic to answer a question or announce a change (price drop / item sold / additional item added / etc.) but you may not reply to your topic just to bump it (see below).

You may "bump" your topic no more than once every 48 hours (i.e. replying just to move it up the topic list with a "bump").

You may not get others to bump your topics and you may not bump other members' topics for no good reason.

This is just good manners!

Trolling / Derailing / Being Helpful in other members' topics

Don't reply to another member's sales topic unless you are truly contributing to it. Don't reply just to be derisive, argumentative or abusive. If you have a genuine insight into the topic post, otherwise move along.

Failure to adhere to these rules may see your topics removed.



Excellent rules Ben, keep up the good work.

Might want to reword the phrase 'Bump Minimum' since it can be interpreted either way.
And you know how letigious some of us members can be.
Try 'No sooner than every 48 hours' or something along those lines.
(I ran some yard sale sites on FaceBook with a similar rule and speak with some experience on this).

I can appreciate your competitive nature Kriminal but this is a new thread, there was one single response made to a forum member when you posted this.
I am aware of the forum rules and respect them.

Just a note...

This thread that you bumped 140 times:
viewtopic.php?f=102&t=375713

It reads you are selling a NEW product.
You might want to change that since the presets were released last year.

And 140 bumps...

Come on, don't complain about my one, single response.

Liar. Your bump was at 08:11, your response was the day before. I posted here at 08:18

Yes, 140 times in nearly 365 days, more than 48 hours between each bump...

So? They are NEW, not used/secondhand/preloved or vintage, and new to that unit.
