  Old  New Marketplace Rule

Howdy folks,

For a long, long time now (over a year) we've had sticky threads in the marketplace forums asking people to stop posting "great design", "good luck", "person x is a great designer, buy this!" and posts of that nature, or they'd get deleted.

Today, I finally got around to finally adding this guideline into the rules proper. This should not affect the vast majority of people, who are more than happy to stick to business within the marketplace. However there are a few people who consistently feel it necessary to post in (what seems like) every sale topic, recommending the designer with a plethora of praise.

So the only real change is that the guideline is now a rule, with a fixed, associated punishment for every time it happens. Lets keep our marketplace as tidy as possible. If you feel the urge to celebrate someone's design or coding prowess, you could always start a topic in the more general, chatty forums or snuggle up via PM.

I guess I'm sort of "bumping this" but I agree with this. I hate signing on and seeing a post in the subscriptions and thinking to myself "Sweet - I've maybe got a buyer" and then you go to the thread to someone saying "Cool layout.. Good luck"

I really don't know how to bump threads, I am willing to learn it, so that I can avoid doing it mistakenly with out my knowledge.

Lesson for you as of now...

You've bumped a thread that is 2 months old

Understand now? It's basically like posting in an old thread. Sometimes people do it purposely to get their thread to show at the top of the thread list

4 months old, actually. The stupid people that do it know what they're doing anyway, this person just plays the innocence card as his particular spammy bull****.

I was actually wondering if there was a way (if possible) to completely change how the marketplace system works? I know it's probably out of vBulletin's limits but it'd be nice if you couldn't see other users' comments at all in the posts. Instead, when the sale is complete it comes to a close (or after x amount of days) and then that's that. The only person who would see the comments is the OP instead of the repliers.

This could eliminate the feel that everyone has already taken the sale and give everyone somewhat of a chance.

There are people that lurk that board... and they attack like piraņas.
