'For Sale' section suggestion
My suggestion: Restrict sellers from “bumping” their threads “to the top” every hour or day.
Why? Because people have to scroll through countless pages, which they see everyday due to constant bumping, to find a new post that another member, who does not have the time to bump their thread every hour, has posted. Obviously, if they need to bump their thread constantly because their item(s) are still for sale, there is not a need or demand for it; constant bumping will not help their item sell any quicker. I am sure a person seeking that item will use the search button and viola, their item(s) will appear! This will also help people learn how to use the search button. They will then take this new knowledge and apply it to other parts of the forum, thus eliminating useless threads and double posts.
The solution: Make it part of the Marketplace rules that one cannot bump their own thread unless they have not had any activity in that thread for over a week or have updated the prices.
