Thread: Need 50 posts before one can post at the "For Sale" forum

    Default Need 50 posts before one can post at the "For Sale" forum

    I find it a bit too restrictive - and also generating a lot of "yeah...", "I agree", "right on" and similar replies to other posts, just to get to the 50...

    What do others think about it?

    (Hey, at least now I also got one more towards the 50...)

    The idea is to get people to join the forum to discuss hunting and fishing not to use the site to just sell something.

    Its a pain and we all had to do it, but it avoids the people just floating around forums trying to sell stuff. And if your a common person contributing to the forum people can get a feel of who you are.

    I understand both of your reasoning - and I agree with them, too. It's just not too convenient, especially if someone (like me) comes to the forum (practically every day) not only to join discussions, but mainly to learn from others by silent observation (i.e., reading)...

    But I got one more posting from this, anyway... (and for the time being, I posted my stuff on firearmscanada)...

    You've been on this forum for 7 years now? Only 39 posts? That in itself is fine, but it doesn't get you a free card?

    Just to clarify something: I haven't ask for and also don't need a free card (for anything).
    With those "only" 39 posts I tried to contribute as well as I could. I could have written many empty and worthless posts like many here do, but I choose not to. Sorry if you don't see any political ramblings, or any (real or made up) bragging about how well I shoot or how good of a hunter I am... (There! Getting close to the sacred 50!)
