Hoggy thanks for the reply :p what i dont understand is why i was trusted to be able to view parts of the website for 6 months or so and now i'am not and to be labeled as a possiable scammer doesn't seam right to me at all.After all @ 51 i would hope i was above suspician
I dont wish to cause ill feeling but not being able to pm people to discuss matters i feel i must post it here

rolex you will get a straighter answer out of a brick wall.

No mod is prepared to tell the members how many posts you need to be able to view the classifieds or PM someone, petty, yes but there you go.

They will however relieve you of £15 so you can have the 'privileges' on a forum they don't own.

It's nothing to do with the moderators, joining the TTOC is an option if they want immediate access. You really are on a mission about this :roll:

No more of a mission than the mods are about trying to keep it all a big secret.

Do you honestly think it is a good idea to keep the info from the members, especially when the question get asked every couple of days?

Would it not just be better to be upfront and honest and tell them the amount of posts they need?

Ok! We only follow admin's instruction and make sure forum rules are followed. I'm not sure why you're so worked up as the ruling doesn't affect you!! Maybe the current poll results show the general consensus on this :roll:

I do wonder how many people who voted:
Option 1 - Keep as is now.

Actually realise the rules were changed just a few days ago and therefore they are really voting:
Option 1 - Keep the NEW rules we introduced last week (or whenever it was) - not that many I would suspect, as the poll is IMO not very clear.

You are right it does not affect me, so does that mean I should not care about what is IMO morally wrong?

I really have no issues with their being a post limit for selling items, in fact it is a good idea, but surely all the info should be available for members to see.
I do not know of a single forum that goes about it so secretly.
Personally it is just one of the things that put me off from wanting to support the TTOC, I can't be doing with people who set a load of rules but then wont tell you what they are :?

I agree, can whoever runs this forum tell all how many posts new users need before they can access all areas? :p

Careful Gizmo or you may be banned......we must obey....we must obey.... :lol:
Yes Gizmo be careful or you may get banned although you can send troll posts and troll someone on here and NOTHING will happen to you, well maybe a slap on the wrist but you won't get banned if you upset someone by sending abuse. :?

The reason why what gives you access (and it's not entirely as simple as a post count) is kept a bit vague is so it's less easy for a scammer to plan and get round the restriction. It might be a bit frustrating not to know but the same frustration also puts off the scammer who moves on to easier pickings.

Joining in with normal discussion for a while will show if someone is likely genuine enough not to be a scammer. That's the simple idea. Alternatively if you happen to be a TTOC member then having your details verified also makes you less likely to be a scammer. Which route you choose is your individual choice.
