This is a very bad idea. What if you want trades today, but not tomorrow? Or how about someone who isn't even active? And if this auto bump thing does happen, it would mean no one would get seen because it would do that for everyone. Every single minute there would be bumps for (5000/60...) 8,333 new posts every single minute.

Maybe it should only auto-bump with the person is active and has ...here accoutn set to trade bumps?

I really like the idea of it being automated. I think a set time of 15 minutes or so would be reasonable.

    Support for this, 15 minutes seems good

Something I think could be added is, if we added more threads on the first page/per page? It could definitely decrease the amount of bumping if there'd be enough. I know that a lot of mods can't really do that, but I feel we could try get this to the coders or whoever has the ability to do this? Please ignore this if it isn't possible 'v'

Support. Especially since I see so many people spam bump. I report spam bumpers all the time to staff and it’s prolly annoying as heck for them to have to deal with. That could sort of help their work load? Because as you said, as this site has grown there’s so many more people and a ton of those who bump every minute.

Support, but only support this as an idea that you opt into through your account settings, you can edit to have it bump every 15 mins, 30 mins, or hour; is slightly staggered so that 99 threads don't update instantly, and only works when you have been online 2 or so minutes before it's time for the system to bump.

Support for this too. Definitely 10-15 minutes perhaps, but for a board that moves as quickly as the CS Trades board I agree that 'hours' is a bit of a long time to wait.

Ah I think you may be a bit confused. This isn’t about it automatically bumping the thread for you. That would create too much spam with how many users we have.
The suggestion is for it to limit people bumping about every 5+ or so minutes so people aren’t constantly bumping their threads.

And also agreed with you Dama, it shouldn’t be something that limits bumping for an hour or so, but I can see 5 minutes or something like that.
