      What exactly does a "bump" do keep the thread alive?

            Ok, I get it I wasn't 100% sure. I usually do a "for sale" search of the whole forums if I am shopping. But I suppose an aggressive salesman would do the bump thing.

                Bump is a useful tool. But like any other tool it needs to not be abused. I bump my ads pretty close to once a month to keep my ad from being closed.

                  But I have a suggestion: clean out your inbox! :poke::rofl:

                  Being a Gold member gives you a ton of inbox space!

                    Reporting works too.

                    I basically try to read every classified ad that is from members that are either new or known not to be gold. If they are known gold member sellers, I generally skip by their ads. Bumping is a good way to keep your ad near the front page, but it is short lived as there are so many ads that appear regularly.

                      Another thing that bumps threads is a comment from another member. Comments and worse yet conversations aren't allowed in sale and wanted threads. We do allow a bit of latitude to information about the part especially if the description is incorrect. That information can be a tough call for us as to whether it is allowed and justified or not. Don't be offended if your post is deleted. We are just doing our job. I often leave the information up for a while and take it down later or merge posts to make the thread cleaner.

                      You don't come off as a wine guy to me. Although I will say I do like a 2.99 bottle of Merlot. But now that I've quit drinkin altogether I have to admit I do feel better....so I think I am gonna stay stopped. Welch's grape juice is good too.....but now I gotta cut it with water to dilute some of the sugar. lol Always somethin.

                            Some aged (3 + yeah) white cheddar and a nice creamy stout make a good pairing...
