so I guess this becomes forum spam time...

I understand completely a 100 post requirement to sell, as you don't want randoms showing up and selling 5D III's and ripping people off for $2,500, but a buyer following the rules?


Canon 5DIII || M5 || Sigma 12-24 II || 24-105 f/4L IS || 70-300 f/4-5.6L IS || 100 f/2.8 L Macro IS || 200 f/2.8L || Sigma 150-600 C || Tamron 45 f/1.8 VC || Sigma 85 f/1.4 || 40 f/2.8 || 10-18 IS || Sigma 17-70 C || 55-250 STM

Well, I just went over 100 posts but still have to wait another month to get back into the classifieds. That, after buying at least 10 times, and selling at least 5 times in the last month. Oh, well, I understand the need to avoid scammers; just wish it hadn't cut me out for the next month!

I have some good stuff that someone might want, but I guess I'll take it to eBay for now! Change is upsetting!
I too, was one of those people who didn't leave unnecessary posts just to post....

Why do I feel that a huge part of the community has been kicked out of the club ?

Agreed, sad to see this change doesnt grand father in all of those already having a lot of feedback from buying and selling on here.

Its true that we should all be participating in the forums, but I like to research and read and often I get beat out by others that leave good feedback so I dont feel the need to post.

I agree it keeps the scammers from posting but we should at least be able to view prior to 100 posts.

also interesting: I can see the "classified services" sections, just not the gear sections
I guess the services get less spam?

While I had no part in this I think it was pretty clear that this decision had to do with protecting people from malicious behavior rather than a desire to screw people with a low post count over.

I can say for a fact that any post to the WTB forum was often met with numerous scam offers.
