    Hi there everybody.

    I was checking the forums and i saw the trading sub forum. Now since i have some stuff to sell, I thought to myself that i would give it a shot.

    Since i read the forums most of the times and don't post that much I didn't meet the requirement of >100 posts. Just my luck. But when i was reading the conditions and such, it stated that older members could request permission.

    Now for my question:
    What defines an older member? How long should one be a member to be considered an older member?

    Lol, I guess if you've been around for 5 years, I guess that defines you as a old member... but who knows =X

    They are defined as the members who AIN'T ON MY DAMN LAWN!

    ..actually, I seem to remember Costello saying something about it.. O yes..

    I believe that stuck, that's what a quick search turned up anyway, if so, just join us in Off-Topic Chat and you'll be to 50 in no time! [​IMG]

    That clears up some things. I thought what it meant by older members is if you weren't able to type 100 posts because of arthritis. [​IMG]

    I begged for entrance.

    I have been a member long before GBAtemp started offering some of the first torrents.

    Direct DL from the site? Such a filthy history!

    I take it no repply = denial [​IMG]

    Well it's a security precaution, for 1 (or 2) good members in this case there are probably 100 that would be deemed less trust worthy.

    i think the 100 post minimum is TOO LITTLE it should be at least 250-500

    there are sooooo many ppl trying to rip other ppl off not worth it
