eBay Auctions Forum?

Post by blacktiger » Tue Nov 14, 2006 6:34 pm

When I clicked on the eBay Auctions link in the main Offset forum, it said that t was off limits to me.  Just wondering why.

You need to post 50 posts before that forum is available to you.

Discourages spammers, you know.

I would have thought it would encourage more spamming so people can get there post count up to get into that forum?

not really, people can try it but post padding is frowned upon and I think the mods can remove peoples' posts if they start padding.

indeed, that is true...post padding will not be tolerated....and according to the rules of the site that everyone agrees to when they sign up:
Post padding for the sole purpose of reaching 50 posts will not be tolerated and offending posts will be removed. If the behavior continues we may delete your account entirely.
