It's just a suggestion...no fuss. Maybe the inclusion part is ok but what about setting the same limits to PM as well? Same rule 25 no post in FOR SALE area and no PM option?

25 posts in order to start a FS thread.
A one poster can view the threads.
A guest can browse the FS sub-forum.

I feel your pain, but it is just a matter of ignoring those zero posters and moving on. My motto: the part isn't yours until the funds are transfered. "Reserved" does not exist for me.

Well, I have never read these rules before but 25 post to sell and the 3.0Charlie mind of reserved does not exist are some of everything we need to do a great job IMO.

Asl for more.

Its why if i am looking to buy or sell something i tend to follow my own rules:
1. Do i know their name, i like buying/selling to member i feel i know from seeing them post a bit or have had conversations with on irc
2. Feedback, if they have 0 on iTrader and have no other feedback i will instantly decline as i do not want to waste my time or get ripped off. I will however wave this if it is a local deal as it is typically face to face transaction.

Now people don't get the wrong impression - I've sold many times to 1 post wonders, and even a few zero post wonders. All sales went very smoothly. Why? Funds were transfered the minute the agreement was reached, and my rules were followed.

Gee, it seems like after I started the first thread regarding this (BST Post Requirement), and in which action was taken, now everyone starts making them...

Fact is, if you don't feel like bothering with said 0-posters, then either don't reply, or send them a simple "Sorry, but the item is reserved" or something of that sort. And if you really don't want to deal with them, then maybe don't bother posting your items for sale. I know I have a bunch of stuff that I took pictures of, but never got to posting since I don't currently have the time to deal with transactions/shipping.

As for payment, I wouldn't trust a PayPal payment as you can easily file a complaint and probably get your money refunded. If it's EMT though, then it's irreversible (at least that I'm aware of).

I can appreciate what you folks are going through and I only just joined today after this forum was recommended to me by NCIX.
I was really hoping to be able to get some help finding a used vid card but putting up 25 posts of nonsence just post a want add is silly.

You don't need to post a want ad, just browse through the items for sale.

Again, Stoanee has a 4890 for sale, brand new, for $200
