Diablo® III

Admins & bumpers!!!

@ Blizz

Why don't you simply make some users on the forums have limited moderation powers to keep them alot cleaner? Makes sense and I'm sure there's allot of willing people who hit the criteria

Vaneras, I have reported one guy, Ernes, for gold trade spamming 3 times during the last ½ day - nothing is being done?!

If you have reported it we will get to it. :-)

The speed of which we handle reports does vary though, as it depends on how many reports we have in the queue at any give time.

It's funny how I once tried to sell an item in the trade section and I bumped it only twice with an interval of more than an hour and i got suspended within 5-6 hours for a week or so. Meanwhile all sorts of spammers get their posts in the top 10 section for more than a day.

Again, the actual time it takes to deal with such things depends on a number of factors as we talked about before.

We are very keen to stamp out bumping here in trade, but it generally only results in a suspension (unless you already have a number of previous suspensions), whereas trying to sell items or gold outside of the RMAH will result in a permanent forum ban, for sure.

Easy fix: don't allow replies in the Trade forum. All required communication can be done in game anyways. Every reply can be abused easily and masked as "new information", friends can be asked for free bumps (masked as questions), etc. Replies will be abused as long as they are allowed.

Well, some replies will no doubt be abused, but we keep a keen eye out for sneaky bumping.

On the whole though, I think it would be a shame to not allow replies here on the trading forum. People often get several bids on their items here, people can discuss items and prices without the need for both parties being online at the same time etc. People also use this forum to ask for price checks, which wouldn't work with no replies.

Also, a forum isn't much of a forum if no discussion was allowed.

People would still find a way around things with no replies allowed though—we might see an increase in the number of re-posted duplicate threads instead, which again would count as spamming.

Hmmh why don't u make same kinda bumping rules as the d2jsp has?
U are allowed to bump ONLY every 4hours ur thread
But imo on here battle.net trading section, it would be good if u can reply only ONCE in 24hours ur own thread, if see its necessary. Meaning that u can only have one reply for ur own thread in 24hours and it have timer for the 24hours, meanwhile u cant reply before the 24hours passed :)

But thats only my opinion and i cant make the decisions here :)

If someone asks a question about the item just after you posted it on the forum, wouldn't it be annoying to be unable to reply until tomorrow or until you can get online, hoping that person will be online too of course?

Aside from that specific situation, limiting people's response times in a forum is clunky and generally unhelpful. It would make the system less user-friendly, causing more problems than preventing them, IMO.

Yeah there is a point but its not impossible to create feature that if someone reply on ur own post, then u are able to reply on that, but if none reply on it, then u must wait the 24hours.

Could be good, could be bad, dunno, what u think about it? It would take out MANY gold sellers, but ofc there is always that situation they may create multiple accounts to post on same thread and that way ''bumping'' on top of the trading section list.
But i've only seen, those who sell gold and bumping and bumping all the time their topics in every 2minutes, only the thread creator replies on the topic.

U just see that its ''harming'' the trading section if there is some kinda limit for ''bumping'' and ''upping'' the threads for top of the section? U will not receive so many reports then and easier ur work, also easier for users, but cant know is that working well then... :D

I will like to see a notice message when entering trade channel that says "THREAD BUMPING RESULTS BAN" It should be big because many noobs don`t even know forum rules.

Lots of bump posters has been dealt with as a direct result of reports you guys have submitted, so thanks for that guys... you guys are truly helping to keep these forums clean :-)


How about you ban the obvious bots with public bnet profiles instead of wasting your time on the forums? :-) Get your priorities straight.

Read my post again.
It should be like a notice message big and wide for like 2-3 seconds in the middle of the screen.
The current message isn`t beeing read by the users mby only 15% or so.

The only solution is PERMA bann gold sellers the minute they make those gold posts, that would at least keep them out of the forum... but it needs to be done pretty fast, at least faster than the paste you guys seem to be keeping....

They are permanently banned when we get to them, which is sometimes within minutes, sometimes it takes a little longer. We've implemented filters which make life a lot harder for them and prevents people copy/pasting the links at least.

I assume you're talking about in-game profiles? The community team isn't involved with taking action regarding in-game actions, we leave that part to the ones who were responsible for banning several thousand accounts for botting last month. One of our jobs here is to maintain the forums, ensuring players can use them in the way they are intended to be used, whether that's for trade, advice-giving, feedback or anything else related to Diablo III.
