For a while, now, there has been ongoing "dialog" about a couple issues: First, the signature banner size that sellers and dealers can use. Sizes have varied, as we all have seen. Second was the maximum number of daily auction or selling posts allowable in both the Dealer's Forum and the For Sale section.

Nothing was ever really set in stone- until now.

From this point forward, 2 new Rules, are in place, with the blessing of both Holiday and Thierry:

1. Maximum Signature Advertising Banner Size: 100 x 550 pixels

2. Maximum Number of Dealer/Seller Posts per day: ONE allowed in each Thread. (So 2 allowed, in total, per day, per dealer or seller). In addition, no later "bumping" of a post to have it hop to the top of the list, either.

If any signature ad banner resizing needs to be done, please do so.

And please honor the "one post per day" Rule in the Dealer's Forum & For Sale threads, as mentioned above. It is not open for debate.

This is simply all about keeping the playing field even for everyone.

I of course will abide by this.

But, to make it clear, whether you have 3,000 auctions a week, or 300 auctions a week, or one a week, you still get the same number of posts?

And whether you auction 3 times a week, or once a week, or once a month, or once a year, you still get the same number of posts?

So if I were to split my company into three, then I would instantly get to post three times as much?

I just don't want to inadvertently break these new rules.

Thanks.

This new rule equates to 2 posts per day, every day = 14 posts per week, for any new auction being advertised.

So does this mean that if someone has an auction a year from now, they can or can't post about it every day for 365 days?

I want to get this straight, so I don't inadvertently break a rule.

Each new auction is allowed a max of 2 posts per day...one in the Dealer thread, one in the For Sale thread.

It's to keep anyone from posting multiple times about the SAME auction on the SAME day.

As far as how far in advance you can advertise an auction... that would be at each seller's discretion.

Advertising an auction a year ahead, tho, seems a bit extreme (but I do understand the underlying context of your question).  ;)

OK. I had $100,000+ in auctions closing tonight, and I posted about it this morning, and didn't post again, for fear of breaking the rules!

Something tells me that everyone here knows about all the main auctions, and the endless posting strikes me as serious overkill.

If I posted too much or in the wrong place, I humbly apologize.  Jeff, please delete any posts I made that broke rules (including this one, if applicable).

A few points have been raised recently about people that have posted twice, in the same day, in either the Dealer's board or the For Sale board. Because the vast majority of people who may post items for sale on APF are NOT dealers (and therefore would not usually list posters for sale in the Dealer's area), rule #2 has been slightly amended.

Any non-dealer can post up to 2x per day in the For Sale board.

If, however, a non-dealer wants to place a post on the Dealer's board, then the original rule, of one post per board per day (2 total), will still apply.

The original 1/1 rule still applies to all dealers and auction houses, as they are the ones who will usually be posting on both boards on any given day, if they so choose.

 cheers

Can you please clear something up for us, Jeff.

If a member posts a new topic, is that member permissible to reply to questions from other members even if they have reached their two post limit?

This seems pretty reasonable IF replying to questions only.

Thank you in advance for your reply.

Hi Vectis..

Sure..questions can be replied to.  ;)

The 2 post/day limit applies to promotional or auction type posts.

OK, we just wanted to be clear and make everyone aware of this as we didn't want to cause any offence or inconvenience to the forum and its members.

Thank you.

In kowing and all-seeing anticipation of The Next Rule, I have actually posted an item for discussion in only one forum, even though it has the potential for cross-breeding into at least one other forum.  (The Bond poster in the Bond Genre forum as opposed to also in the New Acquisitions forum)

This is demonstrating awareness for needless spamming and the above one-post-per-day rule, and should be rewarded I believe.

So, can a multiple demonstration of such be rewarded with a token post?  And if so, can I donate it to a person of my choice?  And if so, what would be the seven restrictions to such magnanimous philanthropy?

Many thanks in anticipation of the clarification.

The 2 per day rules apply to SALES and AUCTION-type posts only.

You can't report your own post to the moderator, that doesn't make sense!

here's something I know

Rules are rules for a reason. Generally they are so everyone gets treated equally

some people like to figure out ways to skirt the rules, scheme to get around the rules or even just flatly ignore them

the result is that it irritates people, including the forum moderator who then has to listen to the complaints, take time to message the offender(s), take time to move or delete such threads and get rather aggravated that people put them in such position and then some even gripe and whine that they don't like how they're being treated.

When you're dealing with people who are adults and who not only should know better, but really do know better and do what they do on purpose, then all you can think is that it's rather childish.

Obey the rules, respect the moderator and respect that this is someone else's house.

Maybe delete or merge the for sale and dealers sections so there isn't 2 places for the same thing? Remove temptation.

Yeah for us regulars who read the forum via the filter that shows every new post in a concise list, the duplicates are a bit much after a while.

Might be something to consider, Steve. Maybe just have the one thread For Sale/Auction/Trade and blend the Dealer thread into that. And it makes it easy and no duplications, either.
