    Do I need 50 posts to place a wanted add in the classifieds?.

    Read the rules but not sure on the point above.

    Cheers

    My uneducated guess would be that you need 50 posts to make use of the whole section, no matter whether it's for buying or selling.

    You must be an actively contributing member with at least 60 days membership, 50 posts, and 25 "likes" received to create a thread in the Classifieds.

    I understand that bit for selling that's why I a cupboard full of vapes I'll never use...

    But surely putting a wanted add shouldn't be as strict as I'm not using the forum for selling purposes only and I can't see why anyone placing a wanted would do it to scam anyone.

    Cheers

    You'd be surprised at some of the things that have gone down in the classifieds section. And yes, that includes some "want to buy" posts. While there isn't any way to make all transactions 100% scam proof (this is the internet after all), we feel that our modest rules go a long way to make the section as safe as possible for both buyers and sellers alike.

    Cheers stu thanks for the clarification. Obviously read the rules but they refer to advertising an item not specifically the full access to the classifieds.
