I was warned for bumping my thread one minute early once. It happens. Rules are rules.

You seem to have an issue following the rules. This isn't 'nam. There are rules. Mark it zero, dude.

Face it, the mods are out to get you. No one else has to follow the rules. Just you.

Where does it stop? You get 4 minutes your first month. 8 minutes after 6 months. And so on and so on. It's a slippery slope. 24 hours means 24 hours. Don't like it? Keep bumping early

At the end of the day, 23 hours and 59 minutes isn't 24 hours. The rules are there for a reason. It was no big deal to me, I have never had a bumping issue since.

No, but that is how long it takes for this planet to rotate on its axis.

In all seriousness, rules are rules and must be followed appropriately

So you called us out yesterday for moving an improper thread. Now we're getting called out for enfocing the thread bumping rules? This will not end well.

This actually was voted on by the forum membership: http://www.blowoutcards.com/forums/off-topic/254954-thread-bumping-poll-need-everyones-vote.html

Since I didnt send the warning. Let me fully make sure here.

Per the rules

Quote:
Bumping - Please do not bump your threads excessively. DO NOT bump your thread to the top unless it has been idle for more than 24 hours. Violations will result in deletion of the offending thread. A Bump is considered to be any post by the thread author for the intention of raising the thread to the top of the list. Recent examples of bumps: "pms replied to", "prices lowered", :"XXX card sold", "pics added". If there is interest, your post will be read...remember to post a subject that is clear and informative and not just "LOOK HERE! WOW!". Want more information on this. Check out the Avoiding Thread Bumping Thread
So the rules clearly state 24 hours must pass. We have an example that also stated 24 hours must pass and gives an example stating if one posts at 20:00 hours (8 pm) and then you cant post again until 20:01 the next day (8: 01 pm - sorry I'm still hoping to get everything switched over to a 24 hour clock so it eliminates any confusion on midnight and noon).

I also created the how to avoid thread bumping thread and posted examples to try and help educate the member on exactly what we're looking for. I even have this clearly stated "The image below is a bad example as its only a 1 minute bump...but 1 minute, 20 minutes, 2 hours, 23 hours 59 minutes....its a bump - help us avoid sending the dreaded Thread Bump Warning PM...or worse yet Suspensions!"

How to avoid thread bumping infractions

Yet your admitting to bumping it early, got caught and warned, and its the moderators fault for enforcing the forum rules? I still dont understand how or why this happens. All posts are time stamped and forum time is displayed at the bottom of the screen. This should not happen.

So do you understand the rule or not? Seems like you do not.

You come off as whiny about rules that have been in place. People don't like whiny.

My apologies. The thread linked above in 2012 was for trying to make sure the forum understood what was being deemed a thread bumping violation (ie consecutive post within 24 hours).

This one from 2010 is the actual vote regarding the thread being deleted.

You're making it into a bigger deal than it needs to be. Wait the four minutes and there will be no problems.

What is time really. If you want to bump the thread up faster just run to the speed of 24,562mph for 13 hours. It will be 24 hours in mod time.
