Ah I see - what's in your mind? There's a for sale section which you will be able to unlock once you are more active user.

Welcome Mick,

As @PPapa said once you've settled into the forum you'll be able to list it over on the for sale section.

Might be worth posting a short introduction on the new members section and joining in on some threads. It's a great community we've got here and we always welcome new members, that said I don't think you'll have much success joining then immediately trying to sell a setup before anyone has any 'feel' for the kind of person you are.

I suppose I just think using the introduction area to give a 1 liner of kit for sale, isn't exactly in the spirit of the forum and remember the majority of you thought I was wrong when I suggested removing the 5 post restriction for access to the sale areas. Which would stop this sort of wrongly placed post and keep all the sales stuff where it belongs.

Well the 5 post restriction was easily overcome with multiple pieces of rubbish.

It's why I think the restriction is a big waste of time. This guy will advertise his setup, sell it or not, but like many others will probably not be heard from again unless there is something else to shift. It would be better just to let them post immediately into classifieds....of course no one agrees and we get this rubbish generated.

I agree-ish........

Let anyone come along and shove their stuff into "For Sale" as soon as they like.....
Everyone has the choice to investigate/buy it or whatever - and they may take into account the "history" of the seller (or indeed lack of it)..
This might allow members to grab a bargain (with all the caveats inherent).

It would certainly save many dozens/hundreds of (frankly pish-take) one liner/one smilie posts just to get up to the 5 post restriction
(once again members can react to that how they like).

I think the "issue" is that the restriction is to prevent "outsiders" gaining access to BUY bargains (without "contributing" to the forum in any other way...
At least an "unknown" seller MIGHT be giving someone a decent bargain... even if they are never heard from again....
an "unknown" buyer could just get the "benefit" with nothing given back......

Obviously the 5 posts of pish restriction isn't a real hurdle for buyer or seller.

I would like to see some sort of "hold prior to moderation" on new users posts... just to weed out this sort of piffle (And some of the more obvious spammers)...... OBVIOUSLY this would be an overhead for Mods... and I wouldn't volunteer to wade through the crap myself so can't really expect others to do so.

I go one step further, If I was selling something on the forum (not something I usually do, not sure I ever have). Then I would not care if the buyer was a member with 5 posts, or simply dropped on, seagulled the forum purchased my item and left. My interest is selling my item...I suspect most sellers of stuff would feel the same.

Only doing someone a favour I think I'm ripping myself off with the price would never sell something dodgy.

If someone wants to earn a living with it they will as I have.

If it's something someone wants and they think it's a fair price then I'm giving somebody on this forum first shout.Rather than the outside world so by being a member your getting benefits

I think it could be argued both ways, and neither is right or wrong. One aspect that comes to mind . . .  If I’m selling something here I tend to think I am offering forum members the chance to buy something they know will have been well cared for at a good price. If I want a better price I’d take it to eBay and not bother here. Or if I’m giving something away, I’m happy to do that with forum members but would be a bit miffed if someone joined just to nab a freebie!

But I KNOW there are many ways we can view this!

Not posted this anywhere but here.

Have emailed coffee car businesses but they were happy with what they had but said would bare me in mind.

All the free advertising companies and we know who they are want it for nothing which is disrespectful so never go there.

I'm sure if you were giving something away, you would never feel pressured let someone who just joined to grab it....I wouldn't
