    The classifieds forum will now require 5 posts in order to be utilized.

    This is more of an effort to prevent scammers, and promote posting by those that wish to benefit from the usage of the classifieds forum.

    Once you obtain 5 posts the forum will have to recognize that, and that may take an hour or so. If you have problems please feel free to email me, or PM me.

    Thanks

    I want to thank the Admin. for this site. you run a class site and you have great members. and this is just a improvement on a good thing. I have never used the classified to sell or trade anything, but I did use it to buy some parts from another member. that is a great experiance for me. he was honest and fair, and more than a little helpful. thanks for a great forum for we who use this site.

    Have y'all given any thought to some "buyer rules"? Personally, I'd like to see the "I'll take it" rule take precedent over any of the "I'll take it...if you have the bolt/grip/etc" or the ever present "I'll take it...pending pics".

    Yes, serious buyers that post "I'll take it" (with no conditions) are takin' a chance but it sure beats someone with "if-this's" and "if-that's" holdin' up the show.

    That, and have you considered askin' (requiring) sellers to leave their ads whole after the sale? This would keep down any static on how an item was represented etc and would also serve as a nice "nostalgia" factor for when we look back at "the old days" and how much less items cost.

    just askin',

    I feel that establishing rules for a purchaser is a bit overboard. There needs to be flexibility in the classifieds process for both the buyer and seller, and the rules are dictated by common sense.

    If someone is being irresponsible on either side of the deal then the offended party can contact me and I will try to mitigate the issue, if it is within my power to do so.

    Thanks for the suggestion though.

    By the way, if someone edits their posting I can read it prior to the edit should it become an issue.

    I like it, heres my second

    I would support a clause that the 5 posts must be constructive participation or "constructive in nature" in the forum such as other forums do; effectively eliminating post whoring in 3 month old threads to reach the required count.

    Otherwise, the post rule means nothing. ;)
