What does BUMP mean ?

Unread threads are listed in order from most recent to older. So if you write a new post in your own thread (classified thread in this instance) you are "bump"ing it back up to the top of the list of threads to be seen.

Go to your profile.
Under "profile info" find your classified ad.  Modify it from there.
The modify button will be on the upper-middle right side of the screen.

Your post might be old enough that the modify option is no longer there.

Price changes that take an ad back to the top are still a bump. Please wait the 72 hours per the classified rules.

For those in the wonder: What examples would be considered “negative comments”? 
Thanks!

Thanks!

Saying something like "I'd never pay that much for your rifle" or "Your truck isn't worth half that".

Basically, if you aren't helpful, don't post anything that detracts.

If you don't like the price or the item...... move on,

Reminder

Read these rules.  If negative comments continue to be a problem you will lose your ability to make them. Don't like something about the ad, tough,  move on.

It's become more and more common for us to be having these conversations among the moderators and it seems like our classifieds boards are being taken advantage of more and more lately.

Please be aware that the purpose of our classifieds is for folks to sell random stuff they want to get rid of. Things that are collecting dust, maybe you want to sell a rifle in order to upgrade, maybe you have something you got from your aunt for Christmas that you don't like and you want to sell it.  Maybe you're cleaning out the garage and found a bunch of stuff you forgot you had.

The classifieds here are not for business dealings. If you're fabricating items to sell...we consider that a business. If you're raising beef to sell, that's what we consider a business. If you're selling ammo to generate a profit, that's another example of what we'd consider a business.  Maybe not the dictionary definition of a business, but we're not using a dictionary. Please understand that if any of these descriptions come close to describing what you're doing, you probably need to pay up and become a site sponsor in order to advertise your products here. It's not expensive. Plenty of people have done it without having any qualms about it. The site was not created, nor is it run, as primarily a classifieds site. This is a hunting community first and foremost.

The guy who owns this site uses the money he generates from advertising to keep the site up and running.  We don't keep the forum up and running for people to sell their products, promote their businesses, etc. unless you contribute to the forum in the form of site sponsorship.
Here's the link to where you'd go to become a legit sponsor:
http://hunting-washington.com/sponsorinfo.htm
Please understand that if we nuke your ad, it's because you broke a rule.
