After an update a few months ago it was no longer possible to “bump” items by taking them off sale and putting them back on sale. I’ve been considering making this post for a while, but I wanted to see if it would get noticed and fixed on its own. Anyways, since then a few users have been spamming sections constantly with many of the exact same listing all with 1 day delivery meaning they haven’t committed to buying these codes and are just using it as a way to constantly dominate the front page. As a seller I get my items pushed off constantly and I see people buying more expensive items with slower delivery time. As a buyer it’s a nightmare to have to go through each section and try to find codes I can use now amidst the sea of spam.
Here’s 2 examples of the worst that are ruining the Xbox and Steam codes section.
Maybe it’s just me, but it’s ruining the seller and buyer experience. Could we put a limit on how many of the exact same listing they can spam without actually providing a code. Alternatively, could we at least allow for a sort by delivery time option? Not a single front page item on Steam is instant delivery and now they are both blatantly reselling the humble bundle (which is something that organization is working hard to discourage). I suppose I could just sit around or set up a bot to spam listings all day like they do and not provide instant delivery, but that doesn’t seem like a very good solution. I’ve personally just cut down what I list by a ton as it just gets pushed off the page shortly after anyways and I haven’t bought anything lately either as their stuff is all I ever see when I browse around on the app.
