    Default Bumping classifieds etiquette?

    I was contemplating posting a few pens on here, I haven't really been active in the last year. So can't really remember if there was a general rule to follow?

    There's no rule, but I generally wait a week or more. After a few times, you get an idea what nobody wants. <sniff!>

    Bumping your ad every other day does not make your pens more attractive...

    Etiquette might be that you bump a sales post when you want to lower the asking price...

    Bumping too often makes me believe there is something wrong or priced too high. In any case, I lose interest.

    Bump as you see fit, knowing that no matter how you do it, you are going to tick someone off.
