Default New Rule? Noobs cannot post for sale items

I'm sure I speak for many when I say we're all tired with people signing up just to sell their crap. Nobody is interested in buying from someone just turning up to sell - its the electronic equivalent of someone coming up to you in the pub and asking.

Most other forums put a 30 day or post count restriction before noobs can post.

Some, like the 306 forum, is subscription only.

Advertising should be a privilege, not a right!

The post count will not work as they simply spam a certain section
But we do need some sort of control.

How about a "Cooling Off" Period say 28 days after membership before you can sell? And then only in the " Items for Sale " Section anything other than in here will be deleted by the moderators etc

I agree also what about 60 post and thirty days wait.

Maybe have a classified section that can not be accessed prior to that requirement if posting items for sale in other places the mods remove the thread.

Best thing about group is help each other sell and buy is a privilege not the reason for joining

100 posts and above? Isn't that when we get awarded Senior status?

On a forum I also use we have a rule for this, 100 posts and must have been a member for over 6 months. Works very well, we just need to keep it clean and well maintained.

Thanks for your input guys. I think setting some rules for new members in the classified section of the forum would be a great idea. I will get back to you with the verdict in a bit.

Thanks

as the name suggests clanless...Administrator. I know yungster actively goes about in here.

EDIT: on a another forum I moderate, they allow to post for sale straight away however it only stays on for 30 days. then is purged and if it has a hint of a company advertising, all posts and user is blocked.
