I for one wouldnt relay PM's back and forth, not even mentioning the time it would take, Your deals here have nothing to do with me beyond enforcing the FS/WTB Rules. When something goes wrong, as it will thats just nature, we (Mods) would be the natural targets.

Nah i wasn't getting at that, i was saying they wouldnt be able to PM any other then a mod (ergo emergency) but that would be like telephone tag what you were thinking and that wouldnt be fun for you guys at all

I can say this is pretty annoying, I just had 2 thread up before this rule... have 100% pos feedback but now I have to spam the forum for 10 posts to post another thread? Kind of lame.

I agree that Gav did a good & quick job with this. Oh and to Supergrover for being so quick.

I think think I smell some spam that post shouldn't count

edit: ahaha actually now that I look at his posts, this one was the furthest from spam to get to 25

There's no sure fire way to make sure no one gets scammed as i'm sure everyone is aware.

We will keep tweaking things the best we can so as to deter the scammers but unfortunately it's going to be an inconvenience for the honest people who don't post much.

So? What else am I supposed to do? I have 2 huge sales threads that went well and suddenly I can't post, not very fair... doesn;t matter now I commented on some peoples pretty builds and got my count up. If you saw the amount of private messages I had you'd understand why I felt that way. Sorry that I don't have the time to post on every forum for all of my hobbies :(
BTW it's She not He :P

Too bad we couldn't get our NCIX post count to count here ;)

Also I want to say, the BST system here is great, I sold my stuff fast to honest people.. but I felt obliged to bitch about the post count

I think we need to change it so that a person with no posts can view threads, but not reply..

Spammers are now posting in the threads themselves.
