Marketplace Sticky Threads

I've noticed a significant amount of bumping going on in the marketplace, both overt and sneaky. Seeing a dozen threads with "bump" posts in them tends to annoy people and also tends to bury newer threads, both bad things. I thought this feature would be a good solution for serious sellers that really want to get their threads noticed without worrying about where it falls in the thread list.

After you post a thread, if you're the original poster, you can go to the Thread Tools menu and choose to sticky your own thread. This is what it looks like:



You can choose the duration of the sticky (up to 7 days) and you will need a paypal account. The price is $1/day.

this is a good idea. I tend to only bump them when I add new things as opposed to making a hole new thread.

Despite my desire to get my for sale threads bumped, this is a great idea. I have a feeling that I'm going to be investing $5 shortly...

This might also help seeing the actual market threads of the the threads that have more chit-chat than dealing going on.

Great idea!

You mean like the 3 pages of banter last night on my thread while everyone waited for Booter to finally list his stuff?

Sorry, Timg...
