    Exclamation IMPORTANT: Changes to advertising on BB.

    There have been some significant changes to the way the classifieds section works.

    Here is a brief summary:

    The following user groups have the stated advertising permissions...

    Trader:
    • You can post ads in Trader Sales.
    • You can reply to/bump your own ads in Trader Sales section.
    • Others can reply to your ads directly in the Trader Sales section.
    • You can post ads in the wanted, sharps, kit and other stuff sections, but same rules as VIP's for those sections.
    • You can reply to other peoples adverts directly in the Maker Sales and Trader Sales sections.
    • You can send PM messages to any seller regarding any advert.


    Maker:
    • You can post ads in Maker Sales.
    • You can reply to/bump your own ads in Maker Sales section.
    • Others can reply to your ads directly in the Maker Sales section.
    • You can post ads in the wanted, sharps, kit and other stuff sections, but same rules as VIP's for those sections.
    • You can reply to other peoples adverts directly in the Maker Sales and Trader Sales sections.
    • You can send PM messages to any seller regarding any advert.


    VIP:
    • You can post ads in the wanted, sharps, kit and other stuff sections.
    • You can reply to/bump your own ads but limited by automatic bump throttle to 1 bump per week.
    • Others can not reply to your ads directly, except via PM.
    • You can reply to other peoples adverts directly in the Maker Sales and Trader Sales sections.
    • You can send PM messages to any seller regarding any advert.


    Senior Members: Can not place sales adverts anywhere on BritishBlades, but can place wanted ads in portobello. You can reply to other peoples adverts in maker sales and trader sales and send PM messages to any seller.

    Junior Members: Can not place sales adverts anywhere on BritishBlades, but can place wanted ads in portobello. You can reply to other peoples adverts in maker sales and trader sales and send PM messages to any seller.

    All user groups can post in the wanted section and can reply to own posts as often as you wish and can bump but limited by automatic bump throttle to 1 per week., any user group can also reply.

    Portobello is visible to all user groups and anyone can send a PM to a seller in response to an advert.

    ----------------------------

    Q: What is the automatic bump throttle?

    A: The automatic bump throttle limits the number of times you can bump a thread to once every seven days. If you add a post to your advert/thread within the seven day limit, then your comments will get added to the end of your original post without bumping your ad.

    Withdrawing an advert and then reposting it in order to circumvent the bump throttle is absolutely not allowed.



    If you are unsure about anything, please fire away?

    Thanks,
    Martyn.

    Hi Martyn
    I have been advertising on the Portabello Road and just made a small sale.
    it got me thinking - a rare pastime - that if sales are achieved is there a charge that has to go to the Forum ?
    It seems only fair ! But I can't find any references to this on my searches ?

    Dear friends
    I also posted sales of flashlights.
    I wanted to report a decrease in price and a bump but what I write do not separate but instead appends to the first message. How do I separate?
    thanks and sorry again

    You've posted too early - if you post less than a week after the first post, it'll add into the first post.

    Start a thread in the relevant sales forum. You'll see a choice of prefixes in a drop-down list when you start the thread.
