Hello, Ive been a member of this forum for a few years now. I'd like to post in the buy/sell portion but curious about the 100 post minimum. I prefer reading to replying and feel its sort of unfair that I have to post 92 more "nice gun" messages just to make an ad for a trade. Is there anyway around this? Clearly, I am not posting spam at this point, and am not a bot. Thanks in advance. Mike

None that I am aware of. I guess it is for someone to be an active member. A lot of us help others with stuff, and sometimes engage in a bit of chopbusting, so post count is ridiculously high

I completely understand that  and I know its typical of forums to have a minimum amount of posts to eliminate as much spam as possible. But for someone (like me) who maybe cant help as many members with my very limited knowledge, Im wondering if there is another way. I would love to comment on topics and help others out but as my experience is limited, I feel its better not to post at all than to contribute with minute comments complementing peoples firearms.

You must mean rules are rules. If that's the case, I will be glad to comment how nice 90 other peoples firearms are, and wish them the best of luck with them. Thanks for the reply.

It’s designed so that people don’t join the forum just to sell stuff. Go the Armslist for that.

The post count is in place to protect the community. Posting "Nice gun" multiple times for the purpose of upping your post count will have your posts removed and your account banned. Speed/Fluff posting is against the rules.

 

Ensure all your postings are full of content and on topic.

It doesn't take too long to get 100 posts. Besides, it's nice to hear from new(er than me) members. :-)
