Hello I post in the FFXI Account forum for close to 8 years now and it is counting my SOLD listings as active, so I cannot post more threads for sale. The error says I have 6 active threads on the first 2 pages, the first 2 pages go back approx 6 months :( The forums are slow and there are only a few sellers (one being myself) how can this be fixed?

It's not the first 2 pages, only the first page.

If you have 6 threads on the first page, there is an option to purchase an extra thread for credits. After that, you have to wait until one thread is bumped off to page 2.

We don't want a few sellers flooding a forum with unlimited threads, so these limits are in place.

If you notice you're constantly hitting the limit, you might want to setup a "Store" thread where you list all your low value accounts for sale. Then you can just edit to add/remove new accounts. For higher priced accounts you can create separate individual threads as you do now.

Why is sold considered active? that should not count towards. None of these are "low value" these are $600+ accounts

Because sellers will mark their threads as "sold" to flood the forum. Many members did this already even when an item was not sold. They did this to push competitors off the first page and to spam their sites.

Maybe you can categories the accounts some other way, not based on price. I'm not familiar with FFXI so I can't really help.

32 threads can appear on page 1.
You have 6 sold, 1 active.
If we exclude sold threads, this would allow you 13 threads on the first page.

13 out of 32 threads means you would have 40% of all threads on page one. This is exactly the type of flooding the system is meant to prevent. 3 sellers can then control the first page and block everyone else out.

I'm sorry, we can't increase the limit. You'll have to figure out a way to group some of your accounts together so you don't need a new threads for every account.
