    Hi

    I recently purchased JR VIP status and launched a new marketplace thread around a day ago. Since this is the first time I ever did this on BHW I have a few questions:

    According to this thread http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackh...how-post-updated-no-sales-thread-bumping.html it is against the rules to promote your sales thread in anyway more than once in 72 hrs.

    Am I correct to assume that this only applies to promotions such as placing advert or discount coupons on thread but not responding to users question. My inclination for this comes from the next snippet:

    So I guess it is allowed to respond to questions within 24 hrs (maybe even multiple times per day) as long as I group the answers tog and do not respond to individual questions. Is this correct? I am asking bec I have seen many users respond to questions more than once per day..

    I am new to the marketplace and want to make sure I comply with all the rules..


    Thanks

    Its allowed to answer questions more than once in 72 hours, but its suggested to let the questions gather up and answer all of them at the end of the day or whenever there are multiple of them. But other than answering questions, its not allowed to post in your thread for more than once every 72 hours.

    If there is an urgent question that needs to be answered immediately,
    you can always discuss it with the individual via PM or Skype. Otherwise,
    as Brad said, you can collect/group the questions into one post in a 72
    hour period.

    Thanks, Wiz!

    Brad has indicated that it would be permissible to answer questions in shorter time frame than 72 hrs as long as you group multiple questions/answers tog. In others words, suppose a service thread becomes popular and receives half dozen or more queries in a day - would it be permissible to respond in less than 72 hrs as long as I group the response tog?

    As I was writing my response I see @HelloInsomnia indicated the same thing. This is what I want to clarify..

    Thanks

    Ultimately, it is a rather tricky situation. It is up to a mod to determine
    whether or not an individual is replying on his/her thread for reasons of
    being diligent, or simply to bump his thread so that it jumps to the top.

    We do give a bit of leeway, but we are always checking for frequency of replies.
