Another classifieds problem
« on: Mon, 26 August 2013, 18:24:52 »
can we stop this?

http://geekhack.org/index.php?topic=46583.0

if you're having an on going sale, leave your thread open. keeping your thread closed screams nothing but shadiness going on. we don't know if you have had any problems with members. we dont know if any price fixing is going on or anything of that sort. cactux did this, and we gave him crap for it and told him he couldn't do it and he stopped. why is that guy getting a pass? his reason is to keep his thread clean. pretty sure we have mods to take care of that.

Wouldn't posting in the thread complaining constitute thread crapping (I remember when everyone what butt hurt about that) and shouldn't a thread just like this be started as a non-thread crapping alternative?

I PMed him about one of them and got a reply pretty quickly, but I tend to skip locked WTS threads under the assumption that the item/s are already sold.  I only looked at this one because of, well, you can guess.
"Because keyboards are accessories to PC makers, they focus on minimizing the manufacturing costs. But thatís incorrect. Itís in HHKBís slogan, but when Americaís cowboys were in the middle of a trip and their horse died, they would leave the horse there. But even if they were in the middle of a desert, they would take their saddle with them. The horse was a consumable good, but the saddle was an interface that their bodies had gotten used to. In the same vein, PCs are consumable goods, while keyboards are important interfaces." - Eiiti Wada

what if you are selling something and all it's doing is attracting bull**** comments that have nothing to do with the sale and all you want to do is quickly sell an item
and for 2 days ppl are posting useless **** like
GLWS
YGPM
I am selling the same thing and it's only $30!
funny that you mention cactux because he pm'd me after my sale finished (in one hour, not a one month long auction) and suggested I closed the thread so ppl didn't "**** on it" or words to that effect.
I said I don't really care they can say what they like LOL

locking the thread is the only way to avoid it. no one would do this if mods actually enforced the forum rules, if someone has a valid question about the item pertaining to them buying it then they should post, anyone else should gtfo
Look at how headfi works, that is a good sale forum. OCAU, stereo.net, same rules as geekhack but ppl actually follow them. because if they don't they get a smackdown
I have seen OCAU slap 24 hour bans on about 10 ppl in a thread, never saw any of them post a dumbass comment in FS again

If you have a problem with people posting in your FS thread just PM a mod they should take care of it.

Actually, I dunno what's wrong with GLWS or YGPM.  They are mindless and meaningless, sure, but they are free bumps.  What's wrong with a free bump?  Threadcrapping, or saying negative things about the seller, the prices, or the items being sold is bad though, and should not be tolerated.

I don't agree with "free bumps", IMO you shouldn't be allowed to bump threads in the classifieds at all - if it needs bumping maybe that means no-one is interested. It pushes new threads down. How hard is it to look through a couple of pages of posts?

Once people realise that posts in Classifieds do not count towards your post count these GLWS posts will thin out a bit.

Without bumping, your post will go onto page 3 within 2 days.  It's a pretty active subforum.  You're saying that your ad will be seen by everyone interested within 2 days?  It doesn't even make logical sense--people don't check forums religiously, needs and opinions change.  And you are incorrect in your assumption anyway: I've had people buy many things after a couple weeks of being listed.

Moreover, many people make new threads for single items.  So if they sell something right away, they can make a new thread, and another, etc.  Multiply that by a bunch of people.  Best to just follow the rules: one bump per day and not get so upset with semantics.

one bump per day?

the "old rules"
2) NO Bumping: Posts that consist of nothing but the word "bump", "ttt", "top", etc. are not acceptable posts, regardless of the forum. If you cannot think of a way to add useful information to a FS/WTB/FA thread, do not add a post to the thread. This new information does not have to be earth shattering, but each new post in a thread should add information to that thread. In addition, please allow 24 hours between posts to your own threads that are not responses to interested parties.  <-- this last line here, I think you're confused to think that it allows posts like "bump for the day" well it doesn't, see NO Bumping at the top

if you could point me to the new rules, I'd be much obliged

Maybe the rule was relaxed due to the number of threads appearing.  if a thread is not bumped, pretty quickly (within a day usually) it gets relegated to the second page.

The occasional bump is ok, 24 hour limit is probably trying to keep that reasonable.

I simply don't see how locking the thread in a sale is shady. When you get the asking price, you sell. In an auction I completely agree, like when you pm an offer and they reply and say, "but Joe offered $25 more". That has a high possibility of shadiness and I think auctions need to be transpatent, when you are competing against another person, but not a sale. If you see the price, offer the price and don't get the item, maybe, but that has not happened here. The price is posted, you offer the price, you get the item, how is that shady? I like the idea of a locked thread in a sale. It probably is better for gh because it keeps all the negativity out of the threads and the forum cleaner. OK, flame away.   :)

We have mods to keep the forum clean. They should take away the ability for OP to close the thread. What's the point of mods if none enforce the rules? Nobody here in special thay they cant take a little criticism and if they dont like it PM a mod. MMB does it in his FS thread when it starts to go OT.

why is it shady? he has a fixed price, it's not an auction. He can't fake bumping up the price. there are no rules against it.
Having an auction and telling someone they have been outbid by a pm bidder is shady, but again, nothing in the forum rules that say you cant do it
If you and others are going to go on about enforcing the rules then IMO you need to post a link to the rule - because I can't find it. Where are these so called rules?
