    Your post was not removed...but your 6 day bump was. We also delete all comments people post on for sale posts. I moved this post to the wanted section, and out of the for sale section. Good luck buying and selling.

    You go Randy........................I find it's always a good idea to piss off the Moderator....................................I think its kinda like second day air, you don't count the shipping day, because if you did it would be overnight....................... :-X

    Not trying to piss off anyone but the RULES say 7 days clearly and the RULES do not say post 7 days and bump on the 8th day - it states clearly 7 days, so it is confusing. Maybe the moderators need to post rules that are clear instead of interpretive to their own agenda! This is the first post I've ever done and I read the RULES before posting or bumping. I made every effort to follow the rules here.

    Well here goes the explanation.
    Let us say you posted something at 1pm on the 18th.

    1pm 18th - 1pm 19th is 1 day
    1pm 19th - 1pm 20th is 2 days
    1pm 20th - 1pm 21st is 3 days
    1pm 21st - 1pm 22nd is 4 days
    1pm 22nd - 1pm 23rd is 5 days
    1pm 23rd - 1pm 24th is 6 days
    1pm 24th - 1pm 25th is 7 days

    So after 1pm on the 25th is 7 days.

    So therefore if you bumped on the 24th that is only 6 days. It really doesn't have to be this difficult. Just add 7 to whatever day it was originally posted and you will be fine.
  10. Not to mention rule #16 you have broken

    16. Post Removal. When a post has been removed by a moderator, do not make a new post about the removed post. Any post referencing a removed post will also be removed, and repeated violations will result in account suspension.

    If you post on Wednesday at 1:00 pm, you can bump Wednesday at 1:01 pm.

    Pretty simple.

    Nope. If you post on the 18th, you can bump 7 days later, not by the millisecond, or sundial even. Seven days later. On the 25th. But no worries, I like his spirit for trying, and as well, you all for explaining it to him, right or wrong. And for what its worth, Randy is a good guy, so hes not pissing any mods off. Now, I do edit a ton of folks for going six days, or for even posting additionally just hours later. I edit even more for multiple for sale posts in the same day...Im a nice guy though, for a mod anyway, and try to leave the post thatll make them the most money, and delete the lesser ones! Oh, and I delete a butt load of comments in the for sale section...a-hem...One last thing, we do post very clear rules. Most everyone reads and obeys them just fine, theyre right at the top of the heading, and also to the top right of the taxidermy.net page, under "Rules".
