'For Sale' Section suggestion.
« on: February 08, 2013, 05:23:05 PM »
I can appreciate not being able to post in the 'For Sale' section without having a minimum number of posts and I do not disagree with this, but is there any way that we can view the section? For qualifying members wishing to sell their old gear this would increase their prospective market. When I first joined the forum you could see the section and I purchased some lenses with only 2 or 3 posts.

Hi dodahday
It's a fair suggestion, but the forum script has changed and its no longer available.
I imagine it could be possible for us to hand code a workaround, but it would likely be clunky and problematic ... and broken by the next script update anyway.
In the end it's much easier to just ask interested folk to participate a bit - which also helps the seller or buyer know who they're dealing with :-)

I can relate to what you say regarding the script, as a former admin of a now closed forum I often met with the same problem. Hope you didn't mind me asking though.

Ah ok so at least now I know why I can't see a For Sale section.  Hope I hit the required number of posts soon.

I have had a look around and I can't see how many posts I need in order to see the For Sale section?

You need 25 posts to be able to see the Sale section. It can be changed, but in the past doing so proved to be a problem. 25 posts can go in very quickly and if you don't just post to get your number of posts up then the members will have a better chance to get to know you and have more confidence in you.
