Minimum post count for sellers?

moscowflyermoscowflyer Posts: 540
In view of the two posters that have seemingly been ripped off in the classifieds, it makes me wonder why there isn't some sort of criteria set in order for people to be able to sell? Something like 30/60 days membership and/or 100+ posts would do the trick, it works well elsewhere.

Instead people are allowed to sign up and sell within minutes. I know it's buyer beware and all that but even so.

    Agreed, I think a minimum post count would be a lot more effective that new users that can't send PM's.

    There are disadvantages...

    I'd just go into the 'your bikes' sections and post "nice bike" however many times

    no you can not as adverts over 2 weeks old are deleted.

    this is not a site for trading it is a place for users to get rid of kit that is no longer required.

    how many people speak to the sellers? get an address? get a land line number? or check their details out on the interwebs?

    treat everyone as a con person and you will be fine.
