I have purchased some things on here. if they had a low post count couldn't meet in person, and a new member id never make a deal. Face to face cash only... unless I can get a 3rd member verification... that said I was was dry shaved by a shyster once.

A good step in the right direction. I say 50, but sure glad the new rule has been enacted.

I joined in 2009 and it seems like I remember you had to have 50 posts to view the classifieds. Anyone else remember this?

So, does this mean that I have to engage in the buy/sell process?
I occasionally purchase or sell some things, but not often.
Or do my responses to a certain amount of posts enable me to remain current?

Excuse my ignorance, I went to Kelso High School in the 70s, 1970S.

You just have to have more than 3 total posts on the forum. You should be good to go.

" In today's instant gratification society, more and more pressure revolves around success and the measurement of one's prowess as a hunter by inches on a score chart or field photos produced on social media. Don't fall into the trap. Hunting is-and always will be- about the hunt, the adventure, the views, and time spent with close friends and family. " Ryan Hatfield

100% agree with this and I think 10 is low.

 :yeah:

Sons are a heritage from the LORD, children a reward from him. Like arrows in the hands of a warrior are sons born in one's youth. Blessed is the man whose quiver is full of them. They will not be put to shame when they contend with their enemies in the gate. - Psalm 127:3-5

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

One post in 15 years ?   Donít go crazy now Ö. :-)

I have never posted to the forum until now, but I have bought things, communicating through PMs.

I do think the move makes sense as a way of limiting spammers, but I wonder if I am the only one who has previously not posted, but still bought things from the classifieds.

I am a Washington native, away for decades, and now back. I joined the forum last summer but just never felt the need to post anything.

Boom, there you go, three posts @Lalo now you are good to go with new system.

My guess is there are a few like you. I also think there a bunch of guests who view the classifieds, see something they want and then join the forum so they can reply or pm about making a purchase. Unfortunately we may lose some new members because of that but cutting down on members getting scammed is worth it IMO.

Wouldnít be bad to have a minimum post count in order to list items for sale in classifieds either.

For now it takes three posts on the main forum to post an ad in the classifieds also. Until you have three posts you canít see or post in the classified section.
