Sponsor Bumping

Is it really necessary for sponsor to continusally bump their own threads? It's a bummer to check out the commerical forum, only to see everything rehashed by the vendor.

I'm not wanting to single anyone out, but I took a screenshot to show how ridiculuos this is, 10 threads by 1 vendor bumped all within 3mins of each other.

Seriously. Cause then it's going to start a war with them all trying to bump each other off the top.

Noted - I will speak to Nick about it immediately.
Thank you guys for bringing this to our attention.
On other forums, other vendors deliberately play "dirty" tactics to bump our threads to the bottom - but on this forum, it seems that this isn't the case.

Let me apologize on behalf of our entire staff for crowding up the forums

My sincere apologies guys, I noticed most of those threads did not have updates so I did it all at once but will definitely pay more attention next time. Thank you for the heads up!

It doesn't bother me; I like to be kept informed of mods available. I reckon most other people aren't bothered either as there would be more comments on this thread. Just my 0.5.

I agree but at the same time, I think it should be informative. Not the senseless Bump! but product updates, inventory updates or what have you. It's important to keep you guys up to date with what we have but we have to make sure it's a valuable contribution.

This doesnt bother me at all.
I would rather the venders bump their threads (which they have every right too), then see the threads such as:

"Any vendors have the aFe intake instock?"

Plus its the only section they can really talk about their products.
Give them a break.
Gosh.
