I agree, I like to pop in and out while at work to see if anything NEW has been posted. Then when I get home I can go back and change the Display Sorting to see what might have been bumped/updated.

I also hope it will encourage folks to price their cues fairly from the start instead of asking 3 times the price knowing they and their friends can bump it telling them how special it is every 30 minutes. We know the market is soft. If you want to sell here, price your cue that way and let's go...

Seems pretty easy to me.

People should be able to ask questions, state they like the cue, etc, but only the OP's 48hr bump should cause the thread to be bumped to the top. If there is a charge for that, fine...that would CERTAINLY slow down the bumpage.

One thing you have to admit...AZB is ahead of its time. Most sites are trying to get more action on their websites, and AZB is having to slow their action down.

Most of the current action in the Wanted/For Sale section is
right here on this sticky thread

I hate the new implementation. The marketplace needs lotta actions, why is az slowing down the action and this will make people have duplicate threads for the same item as they want their post up.

I kind agree about action in the section. The wanted/for sale section has seemed to change for the worse in the last few years, and some kind of change is probably needed. I enjoyed selling and buying cues, and did it as a hobby. There seems to be a lot more dealer types in the last few years on here. It actually took much of the excitement away for me. I feel like great deals are few and far between now, and I barely check out this section anymore.

I like the idea of being able to comment on someone's thread without it being bumped. There were many times recently that I wanted to just say something nice about someone's cue or case, but would have to wait a day or so, so I wouldn't get in trouble. Even before all these bumping rules and whatnot, I always tried to be courteous. If everyone was courteous to others, we would not have these problems...but that is never going to happen.

Agreed, there is little enough action in pool without this change, and I generally like change, but this is a poor idea at best. Bump away, I enjoy reading them. Pretty easy to skip over the items that are not of interest. Not a problem for me.

Your putting another knife in a already dying sport. Please return to the old system of bumping.

Bumping threads - 11-23-2014, 08:26 AM

Agreed.

I made a mistake, apparently a GIANT one by not fully understanding how Panjo posts. I thought the Panjo Classifieds section was a new SEPARATE section that you post in and I didn't know that it MERGES with the WANTED/FOR SALE section. IT IS A SEPARATE PLACE ON AZ FROM THE NORMAL SECTION. So I posted my cues there not knowing this and got BLASTED by 50 people saying I was jamming up the Wanted/For Sale section hogging it.

I received TONS of negative remarks due to the confusion and now I just feel like a jerk. I DID APOLOGIZE at least 4 times sincerely in the main forum where I was being put on blast with another good member in the main forum. I didn't even know until a custom cuemaker friend gave me a heads up.

I have ALWAYS been conscious of my bumps and posts to others but I guess it doesn't matter here. I fully understand you don't get three strikes in this industry and I won't risk my reputation.

All in all, now I just don't feel confident or comfortable posting, bumping or browsing at all.

Pretty bummed out.

My thoughts on fixing it:
Go back to the old system and ONLY allow threads to be bumped every 48 hours. Limit threads being posted by gold membership (5 posts at one time) or not (no gold gets you 1-2). Maybe a price range filter.

Pretty simple.
