    Such idea will turn a thread into spam.

    It will be painful as a normal user. I am tired of seeing those ugly looking utf 8 titles already. This feature would mean that one will have to keep seeing those shitty titles all day.
    Not only should this not be implemented, but bhw should do something about the bst titles too. I mean... Perhaps allow a-zA-Z1-9_- only.. :/

    In thaaaat case, a higher amount might make it worthwhile. $10 - $15 sounds a little charming... ;)

    Even at $10 per bump, I think this is a bit high but maybe something like $5 or so..

    Idk, just thought it would be good to send BHW some money while the seller gets more impressions.

    I personally like the idea of a paid bump simply because I don't always have anything to say about an existing thread -- not without sounding spammy. So whatever price they come up with would be fine with me as long as it's under the cost of a sticky.

    There is a competing forum that offers paid thread bumps for like $20 but their marketplace is full of garbage for the most part.

    Because all the seller will use it and round the clock all the home page sales threads and sales threads As like [email protected]@J| spamming.

    the seller can use sticky post, Banner, etc

    This would only work if there were some rules in place. The only problem is that this would just be a pay to win situation. If everyone starts doing it, then no one would win, because the page would be flooded with people bumping their threads. A better solution is the Google ad method, where a couple more spots at the top are for sale. And people pay for that spot(s) on a daily or weekly basis and have a wait list, but these threads would definitely need quality control. Overall, this is mostly a seller issue, which I'm not, but I feel that if sellers want to pay to advertise then make sure the value matches the payment.

    Many of the buyers dont post their transaction id on the thread. Even if the seller ask them so much to post. Some buyers are not even ready to post the transaction id, then review is quote away to post.

    And this leads to no sale of the service, which even is good for any buyer. So for that, there should be some rule.

    Hoping to hear views on this.

    Rules would be good. Like not allowing subsequent bumps or only allowing one bump a day or X bumps a week.

    If your competition bumps their threads you will be in the bottom soon enough

    No, sellers will end up losing a big % of their profit to this. It is not good. If there are not enough clients on BHW, it is better to expand elsewhere.
