    SourceOP forums and "Bumping"


    Is there any chance of changing this policy about bumping threads? I was on UHC forums and I've gotten admit it's quite a relief to browse a forum which doesn't have these threads constantly being spammed by the OP to try and keep it on the front page.

    It's a real eyesore. We have users who are bumping threads every few minutes. Having to flip through multiple pages of spam just to see what has been offered in a sales thread is just ridiculous.

    Could we either put a cap on "bumping threads" or just not allow it? Perhaps allow a thread to be bumped only once every 12 or 24 hrs?

    Please discuss.

    The only place people bump threads are in forum sections that are incurably stupid anyway.

    It's like putting a band-aid on a tumor.

    i think a limit should be helpful. The no bump rule at UHC is stupid in my honest opinion. maybe two bumps a day is better. it can be easily moderated, i would know since that's my job here. i can easily monitor a thread with a two bump limit per day.

    I think that consecutive posts from the same user shouldn't bump a post.

    maybe any more then 3 posts in a row does not bump a thread.
    or a bump limit of idk, no more than once every 6 hours. (intentionally being liberal on limits to make ideas more workable/practical)
    Thanks.

    ok for starters we will go to a one bump per hour policy. if that doesnt work we will go to a bump every 3 hours, then 1 bump a day. thanks for all the input guys. and thanks OP Teckkers and Fusion for bringing this up. Who said we don't listen here at SourceOP?
