Freelancers - Bumping threads

Recommended Posts


Is it possible, instead of having to reply to ones own thread in the Freelancer section to bump it, what about if you were to edit the main post and have it 'bump' itself?

I know this is possible in other forums, not sure if SMF can do it.

Is there a reason you don't want to bump the thread?  It's less trouble than editing a post, to be honest.

The only reason I know for doing that would be to update your personal info, etc.

what about having a link or somthing that only the post creator can see so once clicked it auto bumps the post?

Just a thought :)

I'd like to avoid adding 15 million little mods like that.  Do you know how many little things like that could be added to this site?  We can't make everyone happy.

hehe I was just curious. I just asked because I added something to my post, and CrayonViolet merged the two posts together into one.

Just thought it would be nicer than having a mod do it that's all. :)

Btw, still loving SMF :D

the way i see it, you should edit the original post for updating/adding information about yourself.  don't make a new post to do that. simply edit the original. If I were someone looking for a freelancer, I don't want to be reading 500 posts where things are randomly added/changed, etc... that can get quite confusing.  I'd probably just move on and look for someone else.

Editing your post will not bump it. If you want to bump it, then bump it with a new post - every 12-24 hours max. simply put "bump." or maybe like "still available" or something.  To be honest though, the freelance forum is kinda slow, so you really don't even need to bump your thread more than every couple days to a week to even keep it on the first page.

Crayon Violent: Aye I noticed that it's not needing to be bumped for a while.

I just thought it would _look_ better if there weren't the bump replies. That's all.  We can close the thread now its been answered.

Thanks

You can go in and delete the other bumps if you wish.  And your remaining "bump comment" could be something like "updated contact details" or something like that.
