For sale ads

With the influx of SMART ASS newbs showing up to sell things, I'd like to pass along our implementation system on my home forums. No for sale under 10 post count, Sales and mentions in the main forums not pertaining to the thread (like the one linked above) deleted and warning issued. Beyond not contributing to the forum and showing up just to sell items, disrespecting members on top of it is just some of the issues that arise from the lack of rule enforcement of people just showing up to piss on the place and sell their wares.

And how often has this been brought up in the past since there was a change in those with the power to enforce some type of order? Is it any wonder that more and more long time members are becoming less active or leaving all together from this forum? Many true members in the past that asked about "introductions" or mentioned that first time posters listing Sell/Swap items were frowned upon were scolded for such action. I along with several others can remember a time when each first post was fully investigated by a single moderator. (RIP) I am not sure if the lack of an introduction can be attributed to simply forgetting in the majority of cases. Now that I have added my two cents I wouldn't be surprised if I receive a notification that I offended someone and will receive some form of action.

There is no "rule" saying you have to post an introduction, nor is there one saying you can't come here to sell your bike. And there never has been. I don't make the rules, I just enforce the ones we have.
If someone posts up here selling their bike as their first post, my suggestion to those bothered by this is not to buy it.

And maybe that is why the forum has been going down hill in the eyes of many long time members. The activity from those past members is proof along with what they have said to others privately.

Some of us newbies highly value this forum and are grateful to all of you long-time members for your patience, experience and wealth of information.


Thank you!

Thank you!
I never said there wasn't a wealth of information or experience left here at the present time but if you had been lucky enough to have experienced this forum in years past and then compare it to its present situation you would agree that there is a huge difference. I am sure there are some that would disagree but I also firmly agree with those that have spoken to me privately as to the present state of affairs.
