Have you thought about limiting the post to registered user with a period of lets say 6 months and at least 50 post to weed out people making accounts just to post ads.
If not this could become like Craigslist.
I came here to post something very similar. I agree, this should be reserved for the established member community, not the new guys who register just to post their crap for sale.
I'm already noticing post with it being the first post.
I understand everyone's concern, but part of the reason this Forum was created and the Regular Classifieds were made free was to help drive new user traffic to the site. I am keeping an eye on things being posted here, but if you see something that seems like a scam, please report it so all the moderators are notified and we can keep things in check.agreed on both counts.
If you do not feel right buying from a new user, then only purchase from someone with larger post counts. For now there is no feedback system in place to rate sellers, though it is something I suggested to the Admins. This is still a work in progress and we appreciate your feedback!
