MC,

Any word on how soon the 25 post limit classifieds posting will be implemented?

I already did it the second I thought of it this weekend. the changes are already done. just the actual GTR cars still need approval as we are taking 70-100K and we just have to approve those manually for now as that is in everyones best interest

Yeah, me too. 

 

Folks - when this "approval" process started, there was quite a bit of questionable things going on.  Anyone remember the original unnamed marketplace moderator?  That was an initial disaster of someone hiding behind a keyboard with a severe power trip.  The intended outcome (I believe) was to clamp down on the negative banter, misrepresentation, and sometimes outright wrong/bad info in classifieds.  

 

I am in favor of an easier way to use classifieds.  But as always - trust but verify.

Allow users to post, while demanding they stick to the guidelines and requirements of username item pics, prices, locations, conditions.

Posts that do not meet this requirement need simply be deleted with a swift click of a button by a moderator with no explanations. SIMPLE


I concur... this needs to be executed more often.

I'd like to post some items (carbon fiber) but I'll be waiting a while I guess.  I had another profile "conda" and had to create this one because the email associated with the old profile is no longer in use.  I'm unable to follow the "forgot pw" process.  I've tried getting mod help but that didn't work.

Same her.  I guess it's a decent policy versus allowing just anyone to come in and scam.

I wonder if the forum truly has advertising approval responsibility.  I sure understand you want to avoid good members leaving in fleets due to bad scammers.

I wonder if a better approach is from an educational aspect of helping members understand the process of PPI, helping create a database for PPI resources and then focusing on HOW to safely transact exchange of cars & parts for money.  Those that take the time to be well educated will unlikely be scammed.

I just wonder.

 

I also think mods could just delete bad advertising and where needed delete scammer memberships.

I wonder if a section of the forum could run with VIN verification to help avoid scammers.  I am not saying if you don't own a GTR you do not belong, but as an added verification, VIN ownership verification is need for special recognition (flag) that the car is real.

Maybe in a perfect world. That's asking for way too much. If a number of folks can't even educate themselves on the process to post ads, they surely aren't going to proactively do all of those other things.

It comes down to available resources and, the active staff on the forum, I can count with two fingers. If the biggest problem now is newbies that can't spend a few minutes to read, then I will say that we're not doing too bad with all things considered.

Is there anyway to get approved to post an ad in the classifieds without hitting the 25 mark? I just read/browse and have some wheels/winter tires I want to post and just don't see the value in commenting on a bunch of posts to get to 25.

the system has been working very well to where there is a noticeable decrease in reported issues in the classified section. the site is free to join and post to. So asking that a member involve themselves in the community and interact at a minimum level before using the marketplace isnt too much to ask

 Agreed.

 

If we keep the rules too tight people complain the process is too hard. If we keep the rules light, people complain because they got scammed.

I realize that I can't start a topic in the classifieds thread; however, I did start one in my local region and think it was moved to the classifieds (thanks!). The problem now is that my thread as well as others in classifieds all say "This topic is locked" and I can't respond to questions from users on my thread and/or ask questions in other FS threads. Can that be adjusted?

Make some posts in the general forums so your post count goes up to 25.

 

Or send a pm to those asking the questions.

The correct process is to hard? Wow! Perhaps these people shouldn't be posting then, as the process is very simply.
Better to be proactive then reactive I would think.
Just my 2cents.
