p.1 #1 · Why 'Bump" a sale listing?


When the 12hr limit goes by there is a red 'bump' tag that appears which can reset the ad to the top.

Then why do people like this guy still insist on replying to the ad with 'Bump" in the text?

Am I missing some obvious benefit or don't they see it?

he does that so he can move the listing to the top of the order so that it avoids getting buried amongst "x" number of other ads.

You're not missing anything. He probably does it just out of habit. He might also have a script running that automates bumps with a "Bump" in the text body like I did back before we got the red button.

Like I said, that's what the red 'bump' tag does, without having 'x' number of repeated 'bump' replies stacking up .......
It looks cleaner and less desperate than having 14 replies, all from the OP, saying 'BUMP'

Could just be not knowing about the red "bump" button... I didn't know about it till I did.

It could also be a way of adding to his post count
OP: if it drives you nuts, a sure way to end it...just BUY the camera!
