Minimum post rule would be nice. It doesn't have to be unreasonable, but it adds a certain validity to a person once they've made a couple dozen posts, beyond the more obvious things like Heat scores. When I see a poster with only a couple posts suddenly trying to sell a load of hardware, my gut reaction is "What, you can't sell it anywhere else?". Not that it's necessarily a valid reaction, but there's a certain level of trust involved in the whole online buying/selling scene, which isn't necessarily present upon a person first joining any forum.

Making location mandatory wouldn't hurt. Every now and then, a seller isn't from Canada, which is obviously a concern when it comes to shipping. On the other hand, it might even help facilitate a face-to-face sale, if the seller and potential buyer are from the same city.
