    There is, but you can't access it unless you've fulfilled the following requirements: 1) You've been here for over a year and 2) You have at least 100 posts.

    70 more posts isn't that hard. I can post 70 in a month If I try hard enough.

    Go to the introduction place... you can get away with saying Welcome mate! Or something of that sort. Post in 70 topics, even old ones

    Indeed they don't, and if he resorts to spam to gain access to the trading forum it would look suspicious to potential buyers.

    Hopefully I'll have access to those forums in 2 weeks, when my account gets a year old (yay one year!).

    Out of plain curioisity, can you sell modded Wiis? Are there Aussie buyers? Random questions, there.

    Oh, cool. Maybe I'll finally get to sell my modded Wii xD I'd go eBay, but forums are always better, and eBay hates modded consoles x.x

    AFAIK, the only stuff you can't sell in the trading forum are illegal goods (burnt copies of games, flashcarts pre-loaded with commercial games, etc.).
