    We thought about making them have x amount of posts first etc but really what's the point? They'd only get in and make useless comments to fill their quota and qualify to sell anyhow.

    In the end, the For Sale sections (I call them Trading Posts with For Sale and Wanted to Buy sections within) to be very important features on my sites.
    I like the X number of posts thing....what about something like 25 posts or 50 posts. I think (hope) that would discourage a potential spammer. Plus if they are posting stupid posts JUST to raise the postcount, as Admin, I can delete these types of spammers.

    We could ALSO make it so the member has to be a member for X number of days.

    At the end of the day - if this is a service to the members of this forum, I'm all for it, so long as we can plan for potential abuses.

    Opinions on this?

    many thanks!

    Marko,

    This sounds good, if it is easy to implement and doesn't require too much work on your part. I can't see too much going on in this area but you never know.

    I like the idea of buy/sell, for sure. On the many other forums that I frequent, I find things like a minimum post and the no-comments, just PM work good.

    well, we will have to be careful. I think MA will be the first one trying to sell something, and Im sure it will not be any photography equipment, rather himself......

    Photography is more than just taking a picture and freezing the action, or leaving the shutter open. It is more than orchestrating the image with the stroke of a brush. Its the realization and explanation that reality is an isolated experience in which only a specific individual can comprehend during any given time period. - Your Truly!

    I'm liking this idea....I think I'll set it up tomorrow.

    I know JJJ has some gear he wants to show, and i see no reason why he can't show it in our community.

    I'll set the post count high so only "regular members" can post a thread, but anyone can reply for more info.

    If there are any other comments or warnings about things that can go wrong....now's the time.

    many thx!

    Marko

    Hi members,

    Sorry for the delay on this....I did half the work - I only need 15 more min...

    Had to concentrate on the podcast today (now live ), but should be done just as soon as I have a spare moment.

    Thx all!

    This forum is now live. It is located at the bottom of the forum's main page

    You need 75 posts to start a thread but members with less than that can reply to those threads.

    Let's see how this works out.

    Thx!
