This seems like a good idea, minus the fact that my post counts went to zero so I cannot even reply to my own (current) classified ads or bump them to the top. Good idea, lousy execution.

Can you now help me with all of the scam phone calls I'm getting?
Thanks for trying to keep the scammers down.
If it's the car warranty scam, I was getting 5-10 calls a day from them so one day I set aside 20 minutes one day to go through their entire spiel, play along and get transferred to 3 different "warranty specialists" and get down to RIGHT before it was time to give them my payment information to ask the guy "How many people are actually bored enough to sit through this entire scam to get this far to speak to you?" which did NOT make him happy. He proceeded to chew me out, tell me to "get real" and hang up on me.

I haven't gotten the warranty scam call since...so you might as well have some fun and try to beat the final boss. ;)

We are actually playing with limiting bumps to once every 24 hours to prevent the every hour bump guys. It seems it's not working 100% of the time yet.

Do not take personal offense if this is affecting you but not someone else. We're working out the bugs.

Is this retroactive for non-new users? I have posted a little in the classifieds but not much anywhere else. I might have 10 posts in the elk forum.

Bumps once a day would be nice.

Don't know if it is possible for Rokslide, but another forum I use to frequent had a bump bottom. You could push it to bump your post to the top every 6 hours or something like that. It was simple, automatically cut down on people bumping all the time and the individual didn't have to post anything to bump the thread back up.

Once a day is fair. We might have a few bumps before it’s ironed out, but free and effective classifieds with less scammers is worth the wait. There’s few if any places to find/sell what you need with willing buyers better than here.

Aha, that sounds good to me!

I would love to see a bump limit of once per day. Of course you could always set up a link to PP and hit a guy for $1 ever time he bumped more than once a day....;)

You must have 10 posts elsewhere on rokslide before you can post the classifieds. The Scammers are getting out of control and we are trying to screen some of them out.
I've been a lurker on Rokslide for years and needed to get to 10 to sell a pack, but I'm glad for the rule!

I’ve bought and sold items on here for a couple years. I’m glad to see this except I notice my post count drops when I used to remove my listings after selling haha.
I’ve been contacted by scammers more in the last few months than I ever have so I’m glad to see the efforts made to reduce this. Thanks guys!
