    Default Task Force Bumpira


    To bump a thread on an Internet forum is to post a reply to it purely in order to raise the thread's profile. This will typically return it to the top of the list of active threads. It has been suggested that "bump" is an acronym of "bring up my post", however this is almost certainly a backronym and the usage is entirely consistent with the verb "bump" which means "to knock to a new position". - Wikipedia

    ----------

    Task Force Bumpira aims to give every seller a fair opportunity by discouraging "indiscriminate firing" of bumps while enforcing the 12-hour bumping rule.

    Only the seller / thread starter is allowed to bump the thread once in every 12 hours. There are instances that the seller may bump the thread after 9 hours or so but this is considerable especially if the seller cannot login at the 12th hour.

    Comments posted by other members like "Up for this nice item" and "Tabang lang ko up" are no longer allowed. Inquiries about the item are not restricted but if ever a familiar pattern is observed then the poster will receive an infraction.

    This is common in threads where the thread starter have many friends helping bump the thread, up to the point where they are using the thread like a ChatBox, which is unfair to other sellers.

    Bumpiras will receive 1 infraction point that lasts up to 30 days.

    If you are not the seller, then there is no reason why you should be bumping the thread needlessly, knowing that it is unfair to others.

    Default Re: Task Force Bumpira

    this is just right and fair. I have observed that there are some people who bump my thread/posts but they have a huge advertising picture as a signature which is somewhat annoying. Feeling nako ky na high jack ako thread. or maybe (I might be totally wrong) that is their privilege as Premium members. I dont know though.
