    Your signature is a nice quite hypocritical try to by pass the rules you're talking about.

    I may as well chime in as a newbie to this forum. I believe that overall, the posting restrictions are fair and great ideas. The post minimum on the classifieds is absolutely necesarry to reduce possible fraud.

    As for the WAYWT minimum, I haven't been around long enough to see how many newbies come in and post repetitively. The thread seems to be dominated by a select few either way. Read only is quite fine, you could up the max to 1000 and it would have little impact to my world.

    In regards to bumping in the classifieds, why not just set a 3 day minimum instead of recommending it. If it is a requirement and everyone has to follow along(emphasis on everyone), things will play out as intended. Sellers are obviously less likely to break the rules if their thread is at risk of being deleted. Perhaps this is too extreme though...

    tags are useful in theory, but they rarely work well in practice. even if we'd put up a reccomendation on using them, I have feeling that half of the threads would have them (some properly tagged, others tagged with random words) and the rest not. plus the more you have, the harder it is to pick something out of the tag pooling, which makes searching more convenient.

    the latter is something each user can adjust themselves. You can see the display options underneath the thread list in each section of the forum, in which you can choose a desired display time.

    threads per page, I don't think can be adjusted by users, it would need to be changed for the entire forum (or at least a section of it).

    Isn't it possible to use a tag system in the classifieds. Then there is maybe no need for constant thread bumps because you're looking for something particular you just click the tag and see all salesthread which are selling stuff that are tagged. And order this by date.

    Or an option where you can select threads that have been updated in the last X days and view this on a single page or just have the option to change the amount of threads you want to view X threads per page or something.

    Just some random ideas.

    Bumping also allows buyers to know which threads are active (sometimes there are old ones with still available stuff).
    And i dont think there are that much issues with the bumping, since its a closer community than sufu for exemple (with its 10pages of current day bumps), we just have to check the first 3 pages to know whats on sale.

    You obviously don't have the necessity to sell your shit in order to kop more shit, like some of us do


    (btw the little fucker is taking it from the bag)

    Lucky you.

    I think there should be a "don't talk about classifieds unless you actually buy/sell crap in it... we don't want to hear it" rule .

    Maybe you misunderstood - I want to avoid people joining solely to post pictures of themselves. There are other sites for that. I want to prioritize.

    WAYWT is now a separate subforum that requres the minimum of 25 posts. This is to discourage treating SZ as "hey, look at me" place and to encourage discussion about fashion, which is the primary goal of SZ. As with classifieds, spammy posts will be met with swift and decisive action. Let me know your thoughts.

    Thanks,
    Faust
    maybe we should also exclude people with > 1000 posts

    'hey look at me' cuts both ways

    I think bumping a thread every now and then is perfectly reasonable, I've sold a great amount of items weeks after I made a sale thread. they can simply go unnoticed to many users first time around, or someone might have second thoughts about an item when viewing it again.

    the problem is that whenever a thread is bumped to the top, someone else's thread goes back to the second page, and another one to the third page. all of them can't of course be on top. this is not a big deal if all threads were bumped equally often, but if some are constantly on top due to chatter etc., it makes it unfair towards those who only bump their threads once every few days.

    this is not a major issue here as the community is not huge, but we still try to emphasize that irrelevant posts should be kept to a minimum in order to provide a fair selling opportunity for everyone.

    I dunno, I don't see a huge problem in bumping up classifieds occasionally, but there should definitely be emphasis on occasionally. It doesn't clutter the forum to have older things bumped up if they don't sell. I know I've had items up that didn't sell immediately.

    It's a good idea with pros and cons. The pros are that it encourages active participation in fashion, rather than shopping. Also, unlike the Classifieds, I doubt spammers and trolls would stick around just to post themselves on the internet.

    The biggest foreseeable con is that new members with 25 posts who do want to participate in WAYWT may feel intimidated.

    But like I said, I think it's a good idea, at the very least worth exploring. And the 25 post minimum I think is the right number to begin with.
