Or the new stuff, should replace the old stuff, in the OP. No problem there.


For me even then. Cause usually people will start asking questions and discussing the new stuff. I think it's annoying to wade through the discussion/q&a of the old stuff before I might find the info I'm looking for.
And yes, multiple items can easily go in one thread.

While we're at it, people know about the "bump topic" button, right? It gets kind of annoying to read through a b/s/t thread where there's 50 replies and 45 of them are the seller posting "bump" or the like.

The bump topic button? I actually like when people bump their thread, most do it in original ways.

So at the very bottom of the page next to the bookmark topic button there will be a "bump topic" button if it's a thread you've started. Being a not-so-creative individual, if I want to bump my thread and have nothing interesting to say, I'll use that button rather than having a bunch of posts that say "bump" in a row. I don't mean to suggest that people not bump their threads, just suggesting something that would keep threads cleaner/more concise.

Edit: I'm all for people bumping threads with gifs and pictures and clever wordplay and whatnot. I'm just saying that if people dislike super long BST threads, it would be easy to shorten those threads where people just write "bump" every single day. :)*

Y'know, I can't bump mine today, either. Maybe there's a time period in between bumps? Otherwise, yeah, pretend I never said anything in this thread. I feel dumb now. :lol:

I checked for this today and found the button. Maybe you can only use it once?

You can only use the bump topic button once, within a certain period of time. However, you can still bump it by replying. At places like TGP, replying to your own thread acts as bumping it, and it will only allow you to do it every 48 hrs I believe.

Excessive bumping will get your shit deleted.

Also, please remember:

--c) No manufacturers / direct sales of new pedals. You can post here if you're an active ILF member (50+ posts) offering a small-scale service (such as, if you mod a few pedals in your spare time, paint enclosures on a small scale, sew pillows, make paintings, etc...but not if you are using the B/S/T for a business, have a tied-in website, etc.


B/S/T is for used pedals. No sales of new pedals, new clones, or DIY pedals that are built by the user selling them.

Standard rule in most forums...because otherwise, the B/S/T gets clogged up with spam and ads. It's a place for private, person-to-person sales/trades of used pedals.

Builder spam is allowed on ILF, but goes in the Shark Tank. That way it's separate, so users don't have to wade through ads (and users can choose whether to see the ads by going to the Shark Tank, so it's not technically spam).

Also, ILF's B/S/T is a free service (unlike some forums). Builders who want to advertise can do so in the Shark Tank, and they chip in a little money to help cover ILF hosting costs. I think it's a fair system, and keeps things clearly organized.
Trust me, I know what I'm doing.
