When you post in someone else's thread with the intention of making their thread go to the top of the list. Most commonly people post "Free up" when they give free ups.

Rule 13 says it best, bottom line no upping someone else's thread.

Why the new rules? Probably because people were abusing the freedoms PbN gave. You abuse it, you lose it.

You're supposed to get one free up per 24 hours in B/S/T. People were getting their friends to up posts, then people started making a 2nd account to up posts then people started begging other people to up their posts. It got to the point that people following the rules were at a disadvantage when selling their gear.

13• No upping someone else’s thread (example - "Sick gat" or "Free Up" in someone else's thread will earn you an infraction).
lol this is how I would give someone a free up before these rules.
"Whoa sick gat, free up"
lol
But these rules look like the should help

sounds like it, but you dont have people upping threads 10 times a day from friends and moves everything else down. so your items can have a good chance to stay up there slightly longer

Thank you for finally getting rid of the Free ups. I hated when my threads got cluttered with, "Free up, please return the favor!"

It makes it harder on the people selling who used to get friends to up their own threads 20 times a day, but that's it. It makes it easier on everyone else.

How does it make buying stuff is a little harder?

It doesn't thats the point, because now as you said it equals everyone's opportunity at selling there item. Also if you want your item so much at the first page gold up your thread. But at the sametime I understand it, but I dont agree with it.

i find it very awesome that the very next day after this was inacted i get a infraction for a free up.

please make this thread more "aware" to the general PBN population, that way you wont end up with people not knowing of the new rule's

kthx,
Nick
