Post No More 30 Day/25 Post Rule

How would ya'll like it if new members have immediate access to the classifieds section? No more "must have 25 posts and be a member for 30 days" rule?

I say YES. Seriously, why not ? Itís a resource for both buyers and sellers. Parts are sometimes hard to find, so the more the merrier.

At least a couple of introductory posts, after all there is ebay, and other internet means to buy/sell but 25 / 30 is too much

if there's no needed wait then i think you'll just get mega spam like some other forums do. has to be something nominal at least.

The 30 day rule makes sense but 25 posts is rather excessive IMO. Hell, part of the reason I joined was to liquidate my old parts stash . . .

I don't feel like 25 posts is too much. Most of the other of forums I belong to have a one hundred post minimum (which is where I got the meme .. see attached). Really helps to keep the spammers in check.

But you admins/mods do whatever ... I mean, in the end it's your choice since you're the ones that will have to deal with people joining just to use this place as a free selling forum.

Totally!!!

And a waiting period isn't a bad thing either. I wouldn't want this place to turn into another "Gearsluts" forum (that is a forum about musical gear).

How will you feel when we get flooded with for sale/SPAM ads for shit like t-shirts, time share sales, and other interwebs marketing stuff? Or what will stop the SPAM-Bots?

If we want the forum selling male enhancement products... because that's how you get forums selling male enhancement products.

The only male enhancement product I needs is my right hand.... wait that came out wrong... the only male enhancement product I need is a Ducati, a twisty section of road AND my right hand.

But it IS hard to ride that way...
