Suggestion - Subtle Changes

I suggest we change the rules of the Classified section where you must have at least 10 posts before you can post there unless authorized by a moderator or administrator.

I also would like to suggest that no new user can post in the normal threads until posting in the Introduction section.

Just seems logical and I've seen a recent increase in new user classified postings.

Press Any Key To Continue.

Good suggestions Chris. I really do not see any down side.
Any down side comments?

I don't see the problem with someone coming on here and posting in the FS section. How does it hurt anyone? They get their bike sold and someone here gets a bike. Or gets gear or accessories. And if they are joining just to post, it'll only be 1 post and they're gone.

I'd agree here, I think the post limit is designed as a protection for everyone, 1 to stop spam, and 2 to prevent anyone from getting screwed out of their money.

just my but I could care less either way.

Because this is a motorcycle forum with a classifieds section, not a classifieds forum with a chat section. Bandwidth isn't free, so one for-sale post eats up more space. Multiply this several times and you'll understand more where we're coming from.

If they want to sell it that badly, that quickly, list it on Craigslist...

I dont care either way but I am skeptical about buying something from someone that just pops in to sell something. I am talking about parts not bikes. On parts they want money sent then they send parts and i'm not that trusting.
