I am seeing an increase in the credit sellers bumping their threads multiple times a day. We are only allowed one bump per day per topic, and only allowed to bump 2 topic per day.

You can read all of the rules for posting in the the Book Bazaar in the red sticky at the top of the forum.

Thank you!

I'm bumping this. I see several members not following the rules.

The post you linked to only says this about the number of bumps per day: Members may "bump" in this forum a maximum of twice a day.

That seems to state that you may bump a single topic twice per day. It doesn't say anything about the two bumps needing to be in different topics, unless I'm missing it.

EDIT: Nevermind. I found it in the "read more about this on a different page" link. I'd never seen that before. I think it would be helpful if this wording would be clarified in the main rules post, as lots of us (myself included) probably never saw those additional specifications before.

I think there should be a TOPIC created for people selling credits. Just like they have for selling wish list multiples and unpostable wish list books.  Then people could go right there if they wanted to purchase credits and it would  clean up the postings in the Bazaar.

Personally I don't think it makes a lot of sense to separate them out. Granted, I do occasionally sell credits, but my opinion is more because if you take out the credit posts then the forum would be really dead... Not saying that a lot of credit posts is a good thing, but it doesn't seem like there's enough traffic of either type to warrant a separate section or thread.

IMO, asking everyone selling credit to post in one thread is like asking everyone who has a deal on Jane Austin to post in one thread. The only way they have to set themselves separate from other sellers is how they advertise. The Book Bazaar is not that overly active active, usually a week's worth of posts on the main page.

I believe part of the reason for the decrease in book related posts, and there has been a decrease, is because they get overwhelmed with all the credit sales posts.  I know that's why I haven't posted more often.
