    whats the point. seriously, how many people have 100 posts. and 0% warning

    even EBAY dosent have this many restrictions.




    somebody wants to buy something from you, what are you supposed to say;

    ""sorry, you have to go around and post a bunch of messages before you can buy my stuff.""

    its completely Ridiculous.

    This thread is completely ridiculous really.

    The trading area is for users of the forum to trade amongst themselves. They have requirements such as a minimum post count and 0% warns to try and make sure the people using it are somewhat trustworthy. This prevents people just signing up to scam normal users. And to be completely honest the 100 post limit is pretty low, even a 500 post limit could be justified.

    Guaranteed if there was no post limit, boner pill spammers would flood it 24 hours a day. Maybe you should actually contribute and use it so that you can use it, you might find some stuff you want or can get rid of things you don't need. One man's trash is another man's treasure after all.

    Quite a lot of members have 100+ posts and 0% warning.

    I guess if you had 100+ posts and 0% warning then you'll think differently, but you don't so you winge.

    Threado closedo.
