Why can't I even view the Classified

I've read the closed threads stating that a user must have 75 post in order to sell parts and/ or a Bronco but why do I not even have the permission to view items for sale? I assure you that my money spends just as well as someone with 75 post.....

I'm looking for parts in my area and kind of feel like this would be a good place to search

The 75 post requirement is also needed to veiw the classified ads. Its just one of the rules the forum moderators have put in place.

Start posting on some of the word game threads, you should be at 75 by the weekend....

38- Why do I need 75 posts to see the classified section?

We had a rash of ripoffs, & the mods were putting in a ton of time trying to resolve them. There were many threads about the bad deals. It was discussed a lot, & the decision was made to implement the 75 post rule.

The effect it would have on new members was actually a big part of the discussion before the "For Sale" post count rule change. I was one of those who argued against the post limit. But people were getting ripped off. And our mods & admins (volunteers) were putting in a bunch of time to try to resolve bad deals by unscrupulous buyers & sellers. The 75 post rule won out.

And, even though I was originally against it, I have to admit that since implementing the 75 post requirement for the classifieds, there have been very few of the "I got ripped off" threads. They were becoming far too common. Bad guys had figured out that they could come here & take advantage of Bronco owners.

Yes, there appears to be far less activity in the classifieds. Probably because the new folks are usually the most eager to buy. And most of them are good people & it is discouraging for them to not have access. But removing the dark cloud that followed each of the thefts has been a huge improvement everywhere else on the site. We have had to realize that we are primarily a site that exists to support Bronco enthusiasts, & not a site that exists to sell them stuff.

Ranger429 explains it clearly here:

Spamming the forum to get to 75 posts WILL NOT be tolerated.

Posting one liners such as:

"nice Bronco", "looks good" or similiar type of posts will be deleted if they are found.

We ask that you participate in the forum so that the other members get to "know" you. Posting one liners does nothing other than get to the magical number of 75 and I think I can speak on behalf of the staff at FSB those types of posts will be DELETED once found OR your post count reset to 0.
Pepe` goes into some of the reasoning here:

Go into the "Anything & Everything" and just talk to some people. Find a build thread and ask some questions about what interests you... have some real interaction with us and before you know it, you'll be over 75 posts and enjoying the For Sale area in the proper fashion.
It is not a door that will be locked forever. Jump in, become part of the community. It really doesn't take that long.

Okay, I get it, scammers are everywhere and I now completely understand the measure y'all decided to take.
I have something like 30 post now and I find myself spending a few minutes on here everyday so I'll get there eventually. Thanks for the reply, even though it was a copy and paste, lol....

Hey, thanks for the reply. I've read enough to understand that the admins. were only adding measures to cut down on the trolls that were hoping onto the forum to try and run scams on the legit users. I'll eventually get to the required amount and gain access but not sure I'm into playing on the game threads.

I was in the same boat as you when I created my account. I was looking for the hardware for the swinging spare tire carrier for my 78. I ended up finding one locally in a JY long before I hit 75 posts. It is what it is.

I totally get it. Even though I know my attentions are good, y'all do not me from Adam. I actually like the idea of the admin. team wanting to know each of us a little bit before granting us access to everything all at once. It kind of makes it feel more like a tight-knit community.. I'll be patient and will eventually meet the requirements.

I think it's automatic. More of an automatic lockout when the count is below 75. But I don't really know.

For whatever it's worth, the #38 was the 38th FAQ, not the 38th rule. I just copied the whole post including the number & question.

Seems like a fitting thread for my 75th post. Only took me 7 years.
