nicely done dbsounds, i like what you did there - shows initiative...  personally i dont really get that bothered by people asking why they cant post in for sale when they newbies, but maybe im just a little more relaxed about these things than others. Bottom line is if someone with 11 posts is putting stuff up for sale, we can all come to our own conclusions as to their motivation and act accordingly, no? Life too short to get stressed bout these things. Im sure the mods are on the case to minimise ebay types jumping on to the SP bandwagon just to secure a sale but its goto be a line somewhere.if it was 20 posts you might just get 20 posts of blah to allow access to the sale section. 10 is better than 20.  dos tuppence has been been shared.. 
Its just a ride.

Be interested to know how many people selling in the for sale section do any homework about potential buyers?

When i was selling off my rig, if I had enquiries from someone I wasn't really familiar with, I'd drag up their post history. You'd be amazed at how much idea of the sort of person you're dealing that gives you.

But isn't that really the problem Norty, when we have so many members with so few posts, just spamming to qualify for "For Sale" section rights?
What little post history they have tells you nothing, (other than perhaps their primary reason for being here!).

The same can be said for those selling too, who joined the Forum clearly with that purpose in mind. Which is why, it seems to me, an evidently sensible suggestion, to make the For Sale section hidden until a member has achieved a certain number of (genuine) posts.

When, may I ask, did you last see a new member, make an introductory post here, to introduce themselves, give a little of their audio background & why they had decided to join our precious Forum?

Well surely that answers your question though - low post count, all of it rubbish to hit 10 posts = tread carefully, unknown quantity.

That's one reason I reckon it should be 50 / 100 posts. Much harder to write garbage and get away with it. And from those 50 or 100 posts you should work out if the person is OK or not.

Stupid.

Both gigs 4am get in to beds. After getting up at 6 am. Stopped by the rozzers, Manchester again today. Kids party though. No less noise though.

Could do with somebody inventing a cardiod noise cancelling children system

Some people havent got the time to make 10 posts before they want to sell stuff, simple as that. People who want to actively contribute to the forum are welcome, traders looking for free advertising are not welcome, they should try the free ads for that!
