Can't reply to for sale ads

Recommended Posts

same boat here  I found the forum primarily because I’m ready to take the plunge and finally get a proper machine having come all the way from a basic filter machine, moka pot, french press etc and then got gifted super basic DeLonghi espresso machine and completely caught the bug. Now I want to do it properly and get a something like a Silvia and a decent grinder, was looking through the classifieds and then realised I can’t reply.. totally understand why but it’s a pain!

1 down, 5 to go...

Same for me
Read the rules and all will become clear....

Or even a few posts before where you've posted.

Why not post on the Introduction thread and tell us about your coffee experience, preferences etc. and what you're here for, knowledge or just the ads?

And that what I did. I found an ad and wanted to make offer. Read a lot as well, but quickest way was to made 5 posts everywhere (including introduction).

I think the rationale behind gaining a few posts was for new members to read around the forum to get the gist of things, introduce themselves, maybe share some pics of their set up, and ask any questions relating to using the For Sale boards - and to absorb the general goodwill and helpfulness of sellers offering genuine items at a good price ;)

Not a bad rationale at all. I guess, from my own recent experience, finding an item you want to buy and not being able to respond to the ad can be a bit frustrating, so choosing to artificially build up the number of posts, while not ideal, is understandable.

It's also an attempt to allow active member to take advantage of any good deals on kit before someone who just joins never to be seen again.

I really would love to see the stupid 5 post rule dropped...it's simply generates junk posts.

But also some hilarious responses, such as the one from @working dog
