I voted for (No, it is not necessary), I just put my self in someones position that he/she might have something to sell and not that kind of person who like to write in a forum.

For example, my friend has just sold his FJ and he has some accessories left with him and he is totally not that guy who writes in forums but he reads and browses. so why not he can just write a sell thread to get his stuff to other member who needs it.

I still think it's silly to establish a new rule for something that isn't a problem. I could understand if this became a real problem, but just one guy joining in an attempt to sell his Jeep isn't a big deal if you ask me.

Besides, who is going to ensure the minimum post requirement to allow new members to post a classified ad? Most likely they will not take the time to read all the forum rules and they'll just post the ad anyway. Of course a moderator will have to delete the ads after determining that the new member falls short of the required post count. Sounds like a lot of work for nothing...

I'm sure it would be something like the minimum # of posts in order to post pics...

And have you look at the member list? have you seen how many members we have that have never post here? and that their nick is like "free-Iphone" or that blue pill...

But in this forum the only posts that get deleted are those that "a" mod don't like, or he is the only one that think that is off topic...

I think 25 is cool, too many to just post stupid crap to sell stuff and not too many for a legit user to get to in a reasonable amount of time.

Why don't you concentrate on all I have done instead on beating a dead horse! As the mod it is my responsibility to do what I do.

It is very easy to talk as if you know what you do, but you don't have an idea on what a real mod does on a forum, is not about doing what you fell like, or allowing people to do what ever as long as you fell like it...

i voted for 25 post min. as well. i like the idea of keeping spammers away. i don't think it should just be limited to jeep commander items, because i like the fact that a49er was trying to sell his football tickets to a fellow commander owner 1st.

Every automotive forum on the Internet has far more people who join but never post. A minimum post count rule will not change that.

My point with "the" moderator is that he will have the responsibility of deleting "for sale" threads if they are made by people who have too low of a post count. I'm not sure how anyone could stop a new member from posting an ad with less than XX amount of posts. Pictures are a different story because they are basically attachments to a post. It's easy to prevent a user from posting pictures.
