unlock my thread

Post by warped17 » Fri Aug 08, 2014 2:05 pm

Hi I posted a for sale thread under 40k and a user asked me a question and I replied back and I guess I can't do that...?? Do I just have to pm people if they ask questions on my for sale thread? How can I get my thread unlocked?viewtopic.php?f=8&t=239068
Any help would be appreciated thanks!

Your reply was "Shoot me a PM." That's wholly unnecessary in a trade ad. In the posted rules (which you read before posting your first ad. Right? Right?), it explicitly states what is allowed as a response to your own ads.

When a thread is bumped in violation of the rules, it stays locked.

You can edit the ad and put in the bottom, "EDIT: prices lowered"
and just change the title with words "lowered price".

Without having to wait a week.

Not in this case. Once a thread is locked, it cannot be edited.

@warped17 - Thank you for accepting it like a man and not throwing a hissy fit.
Yes. It happens.
