    Buy and Sell section

    Suggestion to lock down the buy and sell section to members who have posted at least x amount of times (e.g. 50)

    just my 2 cents.

    Only problem with that is it will lead to bulk junk/spam type posts, the mods do a reasonable job of policing when required, if you have an issue maybe contact one of them ?

    @Willus, have you had issues with new members? I'm new to this forum, how about a system of being recommended by a long standing member?

    Context is a game changer.....

    In the same lines as - assumption is the mother of all fuckups.
    Please excuse spelling, as finger speed is sometimes behind brain spped........ Or maybe the other wayy.....

    No I haven't but see alot of people harping on about intros etc wen it does happen. Like I said just my 2 cents.

    Recommendations could work.

    I have merely posted the idea to get some thoughts going, nothing more nothing less.

    It's in relation to new members signing up and trying sell their gear before conducting forum courtesy (intros).

    I have had no problems but there is always someone that points it out when it happens.
    This is just a suggestion to counter this 'issue'.

    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    yea, i get a bit pissed with all the comments on some of them.
    things that have nothing to do with the sale,
    eg, if i had the money i would be all over this..
    well you obviously don't have the money so no need to comment, all you are doing is pushing another seller of page 1 to page 2
    not much help for the seller,
    if you aren't serious of buying, then leave the questions or comments to the ones that are.
    Rant over (for now)

    Be easier for the admins, if a new member has a profile - before trying to sell gear on their first post. @Rushy - sometimes a little humour gets the message across better than clogging up some one's PM inbox.
