A single long post could be made more readable by have spacing or differently sized headings to achieve the same effect.



^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^66

I 100% agree with that, and when ever I read a post, I assume the one below it is from a different user. If you double post it confuses me

Is this considered double posting?

13 minutes between the two posts, also if their posts "are not payed" he is wearing a sig ad.
Sorry ndnhc but I want to understand what are the "rules" here (I have reported the post, and ask if a mod can merge them in one).

Thanks for the attention.

The first one is a reply to a post.

I came in later and made a change to the contest.
It is an announcement very relevant to the topic and there is nothing wrong in making another post to get it noticed.

Since its in the marketplace section it would technically violate the no < 24 hour bumps (updates etc. included) rule.

Exactly, we can say "it is not against the forum rules write two posts in a row - attached in seconds" and my two posts were merged (but it is not a problem, until I will not receive an exhaustive reply I will keep opened this thread).
As shorena said it is not allowed to bump your thread in less than 24 hours, and you left run 13 minutes between those two posts.

Unless the last *bump* was less then 24 hours ago then that would not be the case. His first post should not be considered a bump because it was a reply to someone else. Unless he made an update/bump less then 24 hours ago separate from the posts in question then it would not violate the bump rule.

But he could post the announcement and the reply to that user in one post (maybe wait a couple of minutes before posting that thing). A reply is considered a bump , because it 'brings' the thread above all the others.

i don't think someone else posting in a thread would count in a bump. I would consider a bump to be a post whose sole reason is to "bump" it to the top and/or provide some kind of update.

Some people will reference the update post either in their OP or elsewhere and many people probably do not want the post they point to having information that is not relevant to the update.

Using the logic that anytime someone posts in a thread it is considered "bumped" then active threads would never be able to be updated because someone would always have posted in the last 24 hours.

I didn't say everyone's posts are to be considered as 'bump', I said only if he also replied to an users and after 13 minutes wrote again (two posts in a row) it is to be considered as a bump. I don't care about the other posts made by the other forum users.

Explain why you bumped your thread to get more attention, while it was not necessary to do so? in this thread.

Bump a meta thread . I don't have anything to promote or sell here.


Edit: yes in the first case I could avoid it, in the second one I didn't noticed by the reply of that users because I have pressed the post button various time.

I think Ill pass, thanks though.

Honestly I think its best to just let it go redsn0w. AFAIK it happened once, right? The boards policy on defining rules any further is pretty clear. They are a bit fuzzy to keep people from lawyering the rules to their advantage.

In fact, I already linked to it in the sig overview thread.

If I want to bump the thread, without double posts, why not just delete, repost, delete repost every 15 minutes or so? (It will get noticed sooner or later, tho)

No one would make 2 posts one after the other with such a small gap to bump their thread to the top. May be once in a few hours will count towards such an intention. Otherwise, such a rule won't make sense.

This is the problem, I don't still understand if make two posts in a row is against the forum or not. However if you want to report my posts, feel free to do it. Be paid for my posts is not against the forum rules, I know what do you want to say but it seems not this is the case (it can be a problem if my posts were spammy or insubstantial).


Thanks for your opinion guys, this is the way for a pacific discussion.

Maybe you are right (we have learned that make two posts in a row 'may be' against the forum rules, in some circumstances).
