Default Can we limit the box breaks forum to actual box breaks?

Maybe its just me, but I'm sick of seeing threads in the box break forum and then when I click on the thread it says something like I have a case/box coming later this week, I just ordered a certain product, I'll be breaking some boxes/cases in a few weeks, does anyone want to split a box/case of this product with me, is this a good product to break, etc. IMO, the box breaks forum is for posting actual breaks. Again, maybe its just me.

Amen brother. I have been posting this for a year now and I constantly get bashed by people. It clearly says post your RESULTS in the title yet people use it as advertising for breaks they have 2 weeks from now. I could be in there posting that Im breaking cases of Bowman Platinum and Lineage by why waste the space.

People on here were angry with me about posting negatively in a guys thread about his 10 day prior Ginter live break posting. How can you post a live break with sales almost 2 weeks before its happening? Not sure why mods allow it.

I'm guessing because BO made a lot of money from that guy. Not trying to argue about it, JS.

Which is fine, they can run it as they please. Its not even that thread that is most frustrating. Its the threads that never even finish with any sort of box break. Posting in there by honest mistake is one thing, but there is far too much nonsense.

maybe some are young kids or over-zealous young kids or adults? not sure why people make a big deal out of anything and everything they dislike. If you don't like it, ignore it, move on. Why whine about it?

b/c it clogs up what the forum is for box breaks.. its nice to not have to filter through crap posts to find an actual box break.. there are rules for a reason if everyone follows them this isnt an issue and noone is whining.

I am a "mod" in the only one french NBA Trading cards forum, and we have a rule for that.

No new thread without a break recap.

It was the same thing : "tomorrow I will break ....."

In the begginning, all new thread without break recap was directly deleted, now everything is fine.

Yea its kinda ridiculous. I also am seeing a growing trend in the one card at a time threads. You should make 1 thread and put everything in that thread. I have been guilty of this in the past as well but I see how it affects other people trying to sell so I do not do it anymore. Its called consideration for other people. If someone keeps changing the card, people are gonna keep checking and you are gonna get your, check my bucket, are you trading, whats your rock bottom price, blah,blah,blah on every card that is changed which means bump after bump after bump. I dont sell too much on here but I felt bad for someone the other day when they made a sale thread and within 5 hrs they were buried 8 pages deep. SCF has a 8 hr bump policy, I think that works well, but that is just my opinion.

I don't usually say much, but I would have to agree with this.

I would also like to see a new section containing all of the "maildays" rather than putting them in the general sections.

It would be great to see one stickied one for each sport.
