Default Minimum post count For the marketplace ??

This was put in place on another forum i frequent and has helped A LOT !!

this is a quote from a mod there

Please understand that we now have minimum user posting requirements before a user can post in the For Sale forums. New users must post 50 times in other areas of the site before they can start their own threads in the For Sale areas. This is being done to help improve the quality of the transactions for both sides. It gives the people of Motown Muscle a chance to meet new users and makes it more difficult for some of the more shady sellers to mass market spam sell things.

Review this thread periodically to keep up with and rule changes in this area.

If you note any suspicious threads that are missing the minimum requirements above, have concerns about a seller or buyer, or trolling in a thread, please take the time to report the thread and the mods will review the issue and take the appropriate action.

I have 30 useless posts on another site so I could sell stuff there. We already have enough useless posters here.

Thats actually a really good rule imo. This is also coming from someone that has less than 50 posts.

This site gets most of its hits for the marketplace, there is no way that would be good for this site.

most of the issues in our marketplace come from users with more than 1,000 posts

I sold something to a guy who has 49 posts...... every one of those posts were in his one and only for sale thread consisting of "ttt".

I think the last thing this site needs is people making even MORE useless posts in order to sell something. And the few people who will just say screw it, well they might be selling something that someone here could use or is a good deal.

This site is known for it's huge for sale section, why screw it up?

No it wasn't. I actually think that's a really good rule to cut down on the scammers. I could have a lot more posts by now but I only post on something that I actually have a legit input on.
