Default Certain number of posts before selling

I've saw some other forums do it.

What are the thoughts on it?

I just saw someone's first post is pimping a car they have for sale.

I have seen this on other sites too. I don't think its a bad idea but people might just post a bunch of stupid shit just to get there post count up.and I think I do enough of that already.

I have had to deal with this on other sites. If its to buy one thing, I wont ever logged in again. If its to sell something I will make x amount of worthless posts.

I like the idea of at least having a few posts, and maybe a week or two before you can post in the classifieds.

How about requireing an I trader of +1 to post in the for sale forum? This would stop some of the tire kickers and force newbs to handle biz in pm's.

I dont think anyone should be able to buy/sell until they have contributed to the nudity thread.

This was irritating on Fullsizebronco.com

Been a member for a few years, but never posted much. Wanted to post an ad, I had to have 75 posts before I could, even though I had been a member for a very long time. So I had to search around and comment on a bunch of stuff to get my count high enough to post the ad.

You could still just set up 2 accounts and +1 the other.

I just don't see the issue here. Who cares if someone's first post is to sell something? What if that something was the some kind of something you really wanted?
