Well, the board is either fixed, or it's going to run terribly. Cross your fingers and hope for the best. I'm at my technical limit right now.

Forum Classifieds section

#1 Post by onefouralpha » Wed Nov 15, 2017 11:35 am

Is there still a classified section on this forum?

I've been a follower/memeber since probably 2004 or so, but recently when the site went down I lost my account info (used to be "Ledzep") and just started a brand new account.

I'm thinking maybe there's a limit like I have to have 100 posts or something before it will show, or maybe ask permission? I read through the classifieds rules and didn't see anything specific pertaining to how to get access, so here I am :)

If anyone has any leads, I'd appreciate it.

Once you hit a certain post count you are given automatic access to the classifieds. Pretty much the same rules as there were in place on the other revisions of SRF.

What exactly is the number or is that a state secrete? Before the site crashed I had more than enough but I don't recall the total. Now, at this rate, I may be worm food before I qualify again. :x

I went looking & can't find he post count needed, its neither in the rules atty the top of the forum nor in the rules for swap shop! (which you can't see till you pass the post count) its a bit like the can opener in the can!
I have asked the other mods for the info & suggested it might be added to either the FAQ or rules at the top of the home page.

I've been wondering the same thing. Thanks, Tommy Atkins (and that's one more post to the count!)

Unfortunately in this day & age of massive spamming its a necessary evil.
No-one really likes it, but its a one-shot deal & its better than a million adverts for "electric prune pitters & gerbil squirters".

I would have thought the questions you had to answer to prove you weren't a bot would be enough.
