Posting the word “bump” or taking similar action in order to get your sale items to top the marketplace list takes up bandwidth, is rude, unfair, and irritating to other posters. Please respect to your fellow posters, and not use bumping to promote your sale to the detriment of others. This practice is the functional equivalent of jumping to the front of line.
Bumps for anything but substantial change in description or price are not permitted under the Marketplace Rules. These include posts that are meaningless comment by the listing poster, such as "still for sale," "anyone interested," "going to eBay soon," "responded to all PMs," "PM sent," "eBay listing ending soon," "offers accepted," "OBO," "sale pending," or other similar comments. Also, repeatedly updating your listing with additional photos in new posts will result in a deleted thread. Keep photos to an absolute minimum, and update the original post with the newer photos. Please observe the purpose of this rule, and that is to be respectful and considerate to other users of the Marketplace. We reserve the right to delete any sales thread that does not meet both the substance as well as the spirit of our "no bump" rule.
If you are going to use the word bump in a post, you must provide the reason for the bump. If the word bump is not accompanied by a statement of the change in price or the description, the thread will be deleted.
If a bump occurs in violation of this rule, the listing will be deleted. Thanks for your understanding and cooperation.

Ladies and gentlemen…
Read and understand the new Marketplace guidelines that prohibit "bumps" in threads. The only thread updates we will allow will be those that revise or change the description or reduce the price of the item for sale.
I have been deleting posts up to this point, but from now on, listings will be locked or deleted.
