[QUOTE=DAVE_M;]While bumping may not be in effect, don't fret, there are other ways for your items to be seen.

I've added a tutorial for those of you that would like to advertise in your signature.

[QUOTE=DAVE_M;4972358]While constructive criticism is appreciated, this is a horrible attitude.

With your view, I can say this:
The new system is set in stone. If you don't like it, don't read it.[QUOTE=DAVE_M;4972358]


I don't see where the original poster had a horrible attitude. He had an opinion and he stated it. The fact that it differs from yours does not make it "horrible".

What I don't see is where you are coming from with all of your "directives" to the owners and staff of AZB. You are not even a Gold member, yet you have all the answers.

Where does your authority and credibility come from?

Change the text colors for better distinction and separation of AZ names, thread titles, thread text, etc. because it is very non-distinctive and scanning thread titles for things you might be interested becomes much harder.

Then create a section for pool cues only and cases only and everything else goes into miscellaneous. I am looking for a cue so why should I have to sort through a dozen pages of threads that are difficult to spot and it become needlessly laborious.....then you can use the thread date and it works much better.

I know you guys are trying but there's a lot of room for improvement. The old format, even with endless bumping, was much easier to read........don't throw out the baby with the bathwater just for the sake of change. The current format is like browsing through a Costco store for only one (1) single item but you have no idea where it might be.........please make it easier and more functional.

Matt B.


p.s. Way to go Joe.......you're right.

p.p.s. Azers will just make new threads for the same item using a new heading just to attain front page position for the sale item using thread date order.

Deal with it, IS a horrible attitude.

My Gold Membership just expired this past month. I've renewed my membership today and am awaiting the member status change.
I do not have all the answers, but I do have solutions that were borrowed from other vBulletin forums that I frequent, where I am also a paid member at different levels.

Bumping - 11-18-2014, 12:16 PM

a week wait to be able to Bump makes sense. No bumping at all will make the effectiveness of selling in this forum decrease considerably, i think

Many potential buyers only check the first few top pages, thats why the 48 hour Bump rule proved to be effective

I just combined all my old posts (4) into one post with links yesterday. What about when there are 7 posts that fill up the page?

So my question still stands... Where does your credibility come from? Who are you to question the credibility of others? I seem to have upset you and I apologize, but you should heed your own advice.

Apology accepted, but another person's opinion is never "horrible".

If those in charge are to weigh the merits (or lack of) opinions offered, they need to look at all of them, and they all have value. Just because you may feel strongly about your ideas and opinions does not mean that everyone else shares your feeling for them.

The main thing to remember here is that AZB is not a Democracy. It has gotten to the top of the totem pole without all our advise and opinions, though freely offered, having been followed.

In this occasion, they have asked for the member's opinions as to changes on-going. No bullying or name-calling, please.

Joe

Wanted / sales threads should only be capable of being posted / replied to by OP.


Original post should be free,
Bumps, regardless of how many should be sold for 1$ via Paypal.

Lets go with that. I don't have paypal. Glad my check is good. Only the OP can bump and $1 a shot to bump.
Most Cues are searched by builder. If you don't advertise what is in demand your thread bumping will produce the same result as no bumps at all.

Seriously having a forum rule like the op can only bump and pay for the bump is Brilliant,
Nick

This is how another forum is set up. The. OP can only bump his own thread after 48 hours and no one can post in it. This certain for sale section charged $5 per thread created.

There is also a place to sell items for a charge of 10 bucks to the seller to post there. If the item doesn't sell within a certain amount of time it is removed and can be reposted for the $10 charge.

Some of us do not use PayPal, myself included.
Also, basically, people that can afford it, will bump and bump and bump.
What about guys that can not afford it or do not want to pay $1/bump on top of Gold membership?
And lastly, should not Gold membership come with fee bumps or at least with some free bumps.

To resolve the Over bumping ... and the First page Lovers, it should definitely be charged thru PayPal a small fee...

$3.00 to Post and $1.00 to bump every 48 hours only... can only be bumped by the OP

if you make a little or a lot on AZ, pay for the Great Service...
that is my opinion ...
