Hello everyone,

Starting today, there is a new requirement for users to be able to post replies or new threads in the classifieds area. This requirement is a minimum post count of 75. The mod/admin team decided on adding this rule because too many users were circumventing the rules before and we spent too much time having to delete posts/threads of users who should not be posting in there.

If you have anything posted for sale in there, I will allow you to have access to it UNTIL January 4th, 2010 at which time, your permissions will be removed if you do not meet this new requirement.

The only way I can do this is by removing the restriction for EVERYONE. However, starting tomorrow (December 31st, 2009), if we see users posting in the classified areas who have less than 75 posts, we will automatically delete the thread/post. If the same user continues to do this, then we will suspend your account temporarily until January 4, 2010.

Thanks everyone and have a happy new year!

So now you have to have 75 posts in order to reply to something that is for sale(buy something)? :scratchhe

Does this include the Broncos for sale too?

Yes that is correct. It's in the entire classifieds area for registered users. They can still view it and send PMs to reply to an ad they see. They just cannot post there until they've reached 75 posts.

So then nothing has really changed except now you have to have 75 posts to sell your bronco.

Yung, am I to understand this correctly, the announcement you are making is only changing the requirement to be able to post a reply to an ad? For what I have understood from previously, is that 75 was the required rule for this forum all along. So the only thing I take from this is a reply post requirement being stated. Am I correct in this assumption for this announcement you are making? So basically you putting the same rule out there to be revisited and understood? Just want to have clarity on this, thanks.

what your not getting is the 75 post rule was like a scouts honor type of thing. Fullsize is changing the posting requirements in the control panel and anyone trying to post anything in there will have to have 75 posts or more.

I can tell you I easily delete 10 posts per week from the wanted to buy forum with people trying to sell stuff, so 10 posts deleted, 20 pm's, it gets old when people just simply cannot follow the rules.

Jopes, so instead of the honor system in place, the website software permissions will stop anyone from trying to post without the required 75 posts to do so. So am I right to assume that come Jan 4th that if under the 75 rule that the user will not even have permission to even enter the forum? That would be cool, and would stop the bothersome deleting and babysitting efforts of the admin team.

You did have to have 75 posts in order to start a thread in the parts for sale section. There was a large pop up or message if I remember correctly from when I tried it a long time ago.

So nothing has changed except now no one can try to get around by posting stuff for sale in the WTB forum.

that right there is the problem were having right now.

this in no way is making anything more safe, you still have to watch out for dead beats and scammers.

Correct. Now a user with under 75 posts cannot reply to a WTB thread selling their stuff.

This doesn't mean that they can't (well they shouldn't but still do) do it in the open forums. I see a lot of this in threads where someone with under 75 posts will say " Oh, I have one of those for sale". Those threads still are not allowed but people still try to get around the system that way.

Exactly what I was trying to get at. If you can not see it, they can not PM for it. But, the babysitting is still going to be a pain in the a** for admin team to search the post count for a user with a legit 75 or more post ct to ensure the scammer equation. I do feel for you all. There is only so much you can deter.

not really, if joebobthecockslop registers in january 2010 and on january 4th he has 75 posts and is pimping his wares you can bet a bunch of us will view his posts to be sure he didn't pad his way into the forsale section. :thumbup
