Addition to Free Stuff post, without bumping

Hi
I'd like to make an addition to my Free Stuff post
Obviously it would bump it which I know is against the rules, I don't want to get the post deleted.
I would like to add that the item is on a first come, first served basis
How do I do that please?

If you posted it recently you can still edit it. If not, click on the red triangle and ask a mod to change this?

Re: Addition to Free Stuff post, without bumping

If one adds a post with information one had forgotten and which is needed to clarify something, it isn't always punished by Permanent Ban or anything. It can depend on how long one has been a member and how often one has posted helpful stuff earlier. Brownie points and all that.

In practice, Mods are, more or less, human beings but, as you have doubtless realised, they don't like folk deliberately cheating or trying to 'bend' the rules.

If you've got something to add then just add it. That's not really bumping as you're adding more information.

In any event if you've had a for sale or free thread for over a week without any takers then feel free to bump it with something like "Still available". We know that these threads drop down into oblivion and will no longer be read, so we kind of expect the odd bump every now and then.

The reason why bumping is against the rules is to stop people bumping their for sale threads every single bloody day or hour. As long you bump a for sale thread sparingly we're not going complain - just don't overdo it - give it at least a week between bumps.
