1. We have added the ability for anyone to 'bump' threads that they have created. This is mainly useful in the classifieds area where posters constantly bump for sale threads to bring it to the top. This allows them the ability to do that without having to clutter the thread with extra 'TTT' and 'Bump' type posts. To bump it, go inside your thread and click on 'Thread Tools' at the top, then select 'bump'. You can bump only once per 24 hour period.

    For more detailed information please see this post: Thread Bump Functionality.

    For those posting adds without pictures and without prices please put the following abbreviation in your subject line:

    NP-NP

    This will mean "No pictures" and "No Price".

    It will save me the time of clicking and I can move down the list much faster.

    Thank you!

    How about a WTPP (Whats the Point Picture). People posting pics that are so out off focus or so dark or bright you can't tell what it is. If the picture is really bad, it isn't magically getting any better when you put it on here.

    I believe they are actually referred to as Acronyms.

    Actually acronyms and initialisms are both forms of abbreviations.

    An acronym is a pronounceable word that is formed using the first letters of the words in a phrase (sometimes, other parts of the words are also used). Some common acronyms include NASA (which stands for "National Aeronautical and Space Administration"), scuba ("Self-Contained Underwater Breathing Apparatus") and laser ("Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation").



    An initialism is a word that is formed using the first letters of the words in a phrase -- it is pronounced like a series of letters, not like a word. Some common initialisms include UFO (which stands for "Unidentified Flying Object") and LOL (which stands for "Laughing Out Loud").

    suppose you had only one or the other meaning price but no pic or vice a versa you would still have to open and find out which one is missing. That being said is any ones time that imporent that you are gonna bitch about a offer that is missing a element or two KEEP CLICKING.

    if somebody is too stupid to add a decent picture and price, do you really want to do business with them!?! Or this one, "I'm selling this for a friend"...
