Thread: The BONEYARD (buy/sell section) Is Now Private now private?

    The BONEYARD (buy/sell section) Is Now Private now private?

    I can't access anymore.. what happened?

    MODERATOR NOTE TO EVERYONE:
    Please don't post nonsense just for the sake of reaching 25 posts. Your posts WILL be deleted if you post rush. You need to have 25 posts PLUS wait 30 days before you can access the buy/sell section. That means you need to make one useful post per day. Not so hard is it?

    Sentry and I made that change last night. It was decided that as a measure of security/to prevent easy access by scammers, it will be locked down until a member reaches 25 posts and has been registered for 30 days.

    So once you've been registered for 30 days and accumulate 25 posts, you're account will be automatically bumped up. The process runs once an hour, so you won't have to wait longer than that once the minimums are met!

    That's a good policy to have! I like it!

    Yeah - we noticed some users w/ new registrations trying to unload a few products --- I wanna make sure everyone knows who they are purchasing from. A member on here put the bug in my ear and I co-signed it, thought it was a great idea. It's just to protect the guys a bit.

    Of course, this type of restriction causes the behavior above. Post whoring with no useful content just to get a high enough post count to unlock the classifieds forum. But, it is nice to have some safeguards in place to keep scammers somewhat in check.
    Far better is it to dare mighty things, even though checkered by failure; than to take rank with those who neither enjoy much or suffer much, because they live in the gray twilight that knows not victory nor defeat.

    The 25 post count is a bit high. Probably drop it to 10 or 15 if it were my decision. However, the 30 day wait is a great idea.

    Sentry is trying to protect the interests of all FPVers here. I think this was a good idea. If you have ever been scammed (and I have) you understand.
