Default Enough with the "Quick Sales"

There's been a ton of the "Quick Sales" threads with 1 card that lasts for more than a quick time. How about have one designated day each week for the quick sales to be posted that day, and then each thread deleted at the end of the day, like each Sunday is Quick Sales Day.

My guess is that most people would prefer that their sales be quick, whether or not they put it in the title.

Quick sales is just the popular "attention grabbing headline" of the moment. To me it is no different than any other For Sale Thread.

Because if you limit the number of days a week that a member can do "quick sales" , then members will throw up their middle finger, and go sell on another site.

I think this is funny since I see MKV doing the same thing on another forum from time to time

After taking part in some of the best quick sales here the past two weeks I can tell you most sellers do them wrong or they dont have the inventory to do them at all. The best sellers don't let there sales stall out. If they post a card no one wants they add another and leave up the unwanted card but drop the price to move it. Quick sales are supposed to be quick but few sellers are doing them the best way to get the most out of them imo

Brad, say something postive about something for once. Stop being such a Debbie Downer all the time.

That's a solid point you made just now. You and chipmaster are the prostate tumors of the blowoutcards forums.

Why only one day? There are a few threads that are multiple pages long and still are shooting out "quick sales"

If anything each member should have 1 thread aloud in each forum to sell. In the title it says something like this...

Armyatc22's Football FT/FS thread

This way people know who they are dealing with in the beginning and you can just post new cards throughout your own thread (but still go by the bump rule)

This then would cut down on the hundreds of single card sale threads

Thoughts?

I have no problems with the quick sales. They are not a way around the B/S/T bumping rules. If you post consecutively and are caught, infractions will be enforced.

Unless they are done by pet members of the forum. They can do whatever they want.

Please enlighten us all to who you believe the pets are. I wonder if your list matches mine.

as long as they are replying to a post, I don't think it violates the bumping rule
