Title says it all
If you post a reply, that will "bump it back to the top". But you can't change any wording or photos without using "reply" and adding more info.
Or you can just run a new ad (ask for the old one to be closed first though). To do that, just hit the word "report" in the lower left of the "for sale" ad posting and ask them to close it.
An ad can be re-posted after 7 days. So if you posted an ad on Sunday, it can be re-posted the following Saturday.
Dave - Not always true. You can set your own default as to what goes to the top.
How do you re-post? A whole new ad?
Yup. But it is pretty easy to copy and paste your previous ad.
I was warned by a member today that the mods frown upon bumping ads. Curious, I decided to search on the term "bump," and it returned the max (10) pages of for sale ads that had been bumped. I've never seen a rule against it or even language suggesting against it. I guess that every buy/sell venue has it's drawbacks. With Ebay, it's the fees and other hidden "gotcha's". Here it's the nebulous etiquette expectations.
If you have any questions, you can just email/PM a moderator.
Here on QRZ (where I am a new guy), the sales threads do not cycle based on posts in the thread, unlike in the discussion forums, and on other web forums in general. So bumping them is in a way meaningless here (as they do not get 'bumped' up here), except in that they can reappear in the current posts list of frequent readers.
One is allowed to have no more than three active threads in the sales forum at any given time.
You are strongly encouraged to put the make and model of what you are selling in the title.
And as was posted earlier, you can, after 7 days, simply repost your sale to get your thread back to the top of the sales forum list.
Many, many other forums "bump" sales threads to the top of the FOR SALE section when a new post is added. QRZ does not.
"Bump" is not discouraged. Typically it does you no good however. The default sorting for Ham Radio Gear For Sale is to place the new threads at the top of the list. It does not account for new posts to threads. You can, after you log on, set the sort so the thread with the newest post or reply goes to the top of the list.
Bumping is no different than cutting in line.
