    He probably bought that account, sat around for an hour trying to think of the best way to utilise it and said to himself, "I know! I'll do exactly what every other spammer does and promote the services on my site!"

    ... by spamming a thread created by the owner of the forum! Also, thanks for editing the link out. I usually remember to do that when I quote.

    This issue is affecting me as well. I PM'd Apricot, but I thought I'd mention something in public as well for anyone else checking this thread for answers. My membership is supposed to renew next month, and my thread in November. It closed this morning. And when I look at the marketplace, I see that happened to almost everyone. The last post on almost every thread is from Apricot at 8:04 AM.

    Thanks for checking into this;
    Kye

    We have a few rogue threads that we're fixing at the moment. As per my message please pm me with specific issues if you see your thread isn't as expected.

    This usually relates to payments for threads not being kept up to date or forgotten about. Now each thread has it's own payment link AND you can manage from your Account Upgrades panel

    NOTE per the terms - you have 7 days from the expiry of your payment date to renew your thread. If you don't renew it's assumed that either
    1. You no longer want your thread to be live.
    or
    2. Your seller account isn't managed and therefore your sales thread isn't managed.
    either way this isn't good for the marketplace so your thread will be permanently closed. If you'd like to reopen it then you will need to resubmit and it will need to be retested.
