No conspiracy guys.
Just double checking with the other MODS why this could be the case.

There's a user who registered on the 16th Feb 2020 who at the time of writing this has 14 posts to his name and they have a thumb already. Nice to see the rules apply to everyone!

In light of your long service to the carp forum we have had a rethink of the classified rule that has been part of the forum for more years than I have grown a beard for and unfortunately for some we have decided to keep the qualifying criteria as is , for the reasons as explained below.
Only 84 more posts to go , no crappy one liners

Another reason the rule was put in place was because this is not a sales site its a forum where people get involved help each other out ...... open classifieds section doesn't promote this

No chance of them reconsidering it, and rightly so. There are plenty of places you can buy used kit too, not just here. Ebay, tackle trader, gumtree, preloved, face ache etc etc

This has been the rules for many many years now and was brought in to help try and stop members being ripped off. Although nothing is failsafe this system has worked very well

The 3 month, 100 constructed posts rule allows new members to build up some sort of rapport on the forum and that other members “get to know” you and can see from your posts if they want to deal with you etc

If someone had just joined the forum and their first post was selling thousands of pounds worth of tackle and a long standing member with thousands of posts, has been to a few socials, met loads of people from the forum and has sold to various members in the past was selling the exact same tackle for the exact same price. Who would you pick to deal with?

Get more involved with the forum, ask any questions you may need help with if you are new to carp fishing. 100 posts won’t take long to get to

I genuinely thought that it was either 3 months or 100 posts. I didn't realise it was both.

I'm new to carp fishing and I've a lot of gear to buy so I would have thought it would be in the interest to all selling gear that a member can get access before 100 posts. As I said I'm new to carp fishing so 100 meaningful posts will take me a long time as I've very little to contribute.

Perhaps the Mods could have a rethink.

Regards,

Ray.

No you weren't. Martin (Mod) informed you on 30th September of what the requirements were when only your second post was asking why you couldn't access the classifieds. Admittedly there's a typo in his response but it's clear what he meant.

"You require 100 constructive posts and a minimum (of) 3 months on the forum before verification can be considered
Thanks in advance
Martin"

Before a member can be issued with a icon they must meet the following criteria;

(A) The member must have been a member of the Forum for at least 3 months
(B) The member must have contributed a minimum of 100 posts that in the opinion of the Moderators have been constructive and have positively contributed to the Forum.
(C) The member must not have been subject to any warnings and/or penalties by the Moderators for at least 3 months (or longer period if imposed as a penalty)

If the above criteria have been met then the member should fully complete their profile page with the following information:

Your real name
Your current full address and postcode
Your current home telephone number
Your current mobile number (optional)
Your current email address

I always thought it was both but I stand to be corrected.

I was informed by a moderator that it was either 100 posts or 3 months.

You need to read the rules mate, you have to have made over 100 meaningful posts to get your thumbs up.
