no idea if this ideas been proposed or not but..
Lets say if i create a sale thread, ill probly bump it quite a bit, at least 25-30 times....which counts as a post, somehow. And its a good way for kids to just cheat and jack up their own post count.
So what if when i clicked on "Buy/Sell/Trade", next to my thread, like on the right side or something, like this:
so i think this would be a pretty good way to keep the post count so that only legitimate posts are counted, and itd be a bit easier to move your thread to the top.
Also, a thought crossed my mind that maybe some people would go over the top and bump their thread every 5 minutes. So, maybe a time limit of say, 2 hours between clicks could be useful, as shown:
just a cool idea that came to my mind to make bumping easier and keep posts legit.
tell me ur thoughts!
