Starting today we've made some slight posting limit changes to Premium+ Users and Free Users.

Free User increases in Album listings

Free users can now post 60 albums a month (up from 30), and 120 albums a year (up from 100). However, we will soon be restricting "bulk software" listings to allow only 1 such listing per month in order to encourage more Grouped and Single Album listings.

Free users can now have 20 active classifieds, down from 30. After studying trends it was determined that 20 is more than fair and sufficient for all hobbyists on the site.

Premium User

Premium users now have a yearly limit of 135 ads per year. To make the most of your ad limits, please remember that you can relist an ad without it counting towards your yearly limit (it only counts towards your daily and monthly limits). This means that if you have an item that is listed for 30 days and expires, you can relist it and it still counts as only using 1 single ad for the year.

This is the preferred way of "bumping" an ad that has not sold yet, with the "other" method that some sellers use being to turning it OFF and then making a brand new ad, which ends up eating into your yearly limit.

Premium+ changes

Premium+ users now have a monthly limit of 45 postings a month. We initially offered unlimited listings for this user level when we launched it last year, but over time this has proven unrealistic for us from a cost and logic perspective compared to the value that it was providing. The Premium user level is also intended for hobbyists, not for users who earn a living or are trying to resell on CAM for profit. If you are earning a living, trying to make a profit, or posting more than 45 a month you will need to reach out to about a commercial user level account.

Premium Software Posting Limits Changes Coming February 1st

Coming soon, CAM will launch a new "software catalog" system that allows users to shop your entire Software Album catalog right from your user profile and allow you to manage all Albums from a central place. This change is in keeping with our effort to move away from individual listings and towards Album listings on CAM.

Starting February 1st, Premium and Premium+ users will no longer have unlimited Software postings per month or per year. Instead, Software postings will use up the same limit as regular hardware postings. Since introducing the new Albums system, Premium and Premium+ users can now post many more albums as Grouped Listings, and we've been encouraging and helping Premium users to take advantage of this new system. The new catalog system will further enhance software album sales through the new system and we feel comfortable now further encouraging Grouped listings.

This will mean that if you are a Premium or Premium+ user you should start now to adapt to the new listings, and when renewing your old listings convert them to Grouped Listings where possible. angust63 has graciously offered to help any users interested to make a Grouped Listing by helping you create Excel/CSV sheets that you can then easily import into your listings.
