Soo it says you have to have 25 posts, that means to post a classified thread or respond to one?
25 meaningful and constructive* posts (on topic) and be a member for a month.
* That means none of this "Thanks" or "Nice bike" or "How you doin'?"
To be fair, I too read the no classifieds till 25 posts/30 days rule to mean that I couldn't post an ad not that I couldnt respond to an ad. But a PM is presumably ok? Or is it a complete ban on buying and selling?
Just that you can't post an ad to sell anything.
