You can't edit after 24 hours or delete. Just make your "bump" post one where you update prices.



The problem with that is that I have the feeling many people don't look at your whole thread any more once they have seen it once or twice. That way they miss the price updates at the bottom...

On longer threads, I find I start at the bottom and work my way up to get the latest first. If someone is really interested in a pen (particularly if it is listed in the title of your post), they will come back.

'bump' means to put the post to the top of the page - every new post sits at the top of page one for a nano-second before another bumps it down one! They can quickly end up on page #3....#31....get the idea now? If you are selling something, or posting about something you want everyone to see you 'bump' it - but sales can now only be bumped once a day - to keep it fair for everyone.
You can open a message and just type 'zzzzzzzzzzz' and it will bump it - but most people write a short comment.
Now this will bump this discussion. :thumbup:

Hello.
I would appreciate your assistance, please.

I cannot edit a Post I made in the Classifieds section - it has been 24 hours since I added the Topic, but the "Edit" button does not appear when I load the Topic. (?)

Also, I "bumped" the Topic, but I still cannot edit the item;

- so now, it appears that I have bumped a "sold" item to the top of the Thread, when actually, the sale was canceled and the Pen is now available for sale.

And: The "Help" functions are not working at this time, so I cannot read any of the Help files for assistance.

Please contact me with your suggestions.

Thank you.

Regards,
David.

Why can't I post something in Market Watch, the "start new topic" is unlit/grayed out as many others are in Classifieds. Thanks.
