Long ago there was a thread on how often to bump.

I think it was something like you can bump every 3 days or so...

There are all manner of rules and restrictions on another photography related forum (where tolerance is generally not tolerated) but, I don't remember there being any such constraints here. I will observe however, that bumping too frequently or too much is annoying and turns off potential buyers. Which is probably contrary to the intended effect.

There used to be a guideline about how frequently one should consider bumping an ad. I believe it was every three days.
I expect that the guideline got lost when the site was revamped to include separate digital and hybrid streams.
Maybe Sean could chime in (I'll "report" my post).

Hey, just installing a thread bump manager for the classifieds area. Ran into a snag but should have it running in the next 24hrs.
