    Is there a way to prevent all posts in the marketplace from bumping threads? Then like randomly bump all sales threads exactly once per day at a random time.

    Hmm, I think it’s a very difficult one, lots of good ideas here but I think they all add their own complications.

    Maybe the best solution is just policing the marketplace and make sure no underhand tactics are going on - like sellers forcing buyers to post order confirmation etc- which I guess the mods are already doing.

    I've just reported one guy. Let's see if there will be reaction.
    Cannot write him here because not hijacking ;/
    Still it's some kind of plague! Not one guy... ;/

  5. Why not set the thread display option to sort threads by "Thread creation time" by default instead of"Last message time" in the marketplace?
    Pretty sure xenforo has that option in the admin settings.

    The bumping thread thing is very annoying.

    Bumping this post because I still think it's a fantastic idea.</egoStroke>

    In all seriousness, I honestly do believe this would help, and that many legitimate BST sellers who don't engage in BH tactics directly on BHW's Marketplace can stand a chance at gaining increased visibility.
