Minimum post count needed to view classifieds
« on: March 09, 2024, 01:05:49 PM »
We have instituted a three post minimum to view classifieds in an effort to reduce scammers.
Pain is temporary, achieving the goal is worth it.

I didn't say it would be easy, I said it would be worth it.

I approve!  Should make it 10 :chuckle:

The issue we are having is people are joining the forum. Looking at want to buy WTB classifieds, sending pms to the member wanting to buy and asking the email or call someone that has what they are looking for.

Itís always the same type of message obviously computer generated.

The new members that are doing it donít have any posts. Probably because it is just a BOT.

Hopefully this cuts down on this type of thing.

Members that only buy or sell stuff in classifieds will need to make some posts on the main forum that stay.

When you post an ad in the classifieds it counts as a post but when that item gets sold and the ad gets deleted that post disappears off of your post count.

The deleted posts are in recycle but donít count towards your post count.

Initially this will be a pain for those that just buy and sell but once everyone knows the deal it should help keep BOTS out.

Love it!  Over on another forum you have to have some response to your posts to get a high enough score to post in classifieds.  Some of posts are hilarious -  ots funy the questions they make up trying to get someone to answer them.  Ai ?

100% agree with this and I think 10 is low.
If you shoot the first one you will never get that true trophy.

Wondering why I couldnít see the classifieds. Now I know. Been around for a while, just donít post much. Guess Iíll have to put my two cents into things a little more often. 😁

Thanks

The BOTs never post, once they are a member they just send PMís, so it only takes a few posts to prove itís not a BOT we hope.
