Classified section restriction please help

I've been past the requirements for participating in the classified sections for quite a while now but I still can't post or reply.

Can someone please let me know if this can be straightened out?

Thanks in advance...

I would message the admins and see if they can help. Maybe @Shamrock will see this post and be able to assist.

I see the issue. You are required to have 25 posts before posting in the classifieds (and registered for 30 days). This is why you cannot reply or start threads in there.

Once you hit the threshold, you will gain the permissions automatically.

That's actually a darned good idea. Seems like a reasonable way to keep people from joining just to scam members!

Love the site. Hate the restrictions.

I love this site so donít take this wrong. The restrictions for classifieds are too strict in my opinion. Iíve seen explanations so no need to go over them again.

+1, not enough activity on here to hit 25 posts in a month, and if you try and post in the currently active topics or start new threads your posts get deleted. It took me 6 months to get 25 posts that didn't get deleted. Couldn't even post in other peoples for sale threads to buy stuff.

Thanks for the feedback!
If more people within the community agree on this, we'll pass this on to the mods and admins for approval

I like the security that our classified rules provide, but the strictness is causing an undesirable side effect - new members are posting garbage or reviving really old threads just to get their post count up, and that's not good for the forum. I don't want to see pictures of your cat, just sell whatever you have to sell and go away if you don't want to contribute anything valuable.

Maybe we can lower the required post count. I don't trust a 25-post member any more than a 5-post member. All they should really need is an intro thread.
