Due to this:

http://www.911uk.com/viewtopic.php?t=102034

and this:

http://www.911uk.com/viewtopic.php?t=100150


I thought I would start a poll.

Seems a newbie selling an item is treated differently to an established member.

Surely we should have a minimum post count, I say 91 posts, before you can post in any of the for sale sections Dont know

Please vote and have your say Thumb

I agree, its a shame for some new forum members that may go on to be a valuable contributor, but as with most things in life we are all tarred with the same brush.
there are a few long standing members here though, that are very clicky, and do not give newbies a fair chance, almost like bullying, its a shame because these people have a vast knowledge of the marque, but it gets soured by there arrogance.

im in favour of a minimum post count.

there are other technical solutions to this 'challenge'

Number plate sellers on the forum http://www.911uk.com/viewtopic.php?t=100150 do get a bit of a roasting

and 99% of other sellers seem to be fine but it is an issue that we are looking into.....

The minimum post count rule for sales is common on some other forums

To be honest I don't think that there is enough of a problem to impose something like that at the moment. And as well as that, it can be fun playing with the trolls every once in a while... Cool

As much fun as it is, there are genuine people who do join and by chance have stuff to sell. Maybe because they had a 996 and bought a 997 for example.

We were all newbies once, I like to think of it as being a Learner driver, we were all one once too Wink

I'd be more interested in seeing people with very low post counts being prevented from sending PMs to others. That would stop a lot of the trolling and prevent some from being ripped off.

I agree with that, however the vast number of forum members have never ben in the jungle, and only live around the safety of the keyboard.

A minimum post count would mean we may miss out on a potential purchase.
There are some genuine good items for sale by low post people who have
looked for a specific [Porsche related] marketplace. Do you want to miss out
on those items because the seller hasn't been on the forum before?

I bought some Porsche Design specs from a person with just one post.
Brand new in the box with a receipt from Harrods.Absolute bargain!

I paid by paypal and made sure that the funds were NOT sent as a gift.

Well I voted no for 2 reasons....

Firstly, if someone posts something relevant at a fair rate then I think generally they get treated ok. They have to accept they have no history or "rep" so any sale would need to be considered a good deal as there would naturally be more perceived risk.

Secondly it would stop some genuine good deals. Believe it or not some people don't like / can't be bothered with forums, why restrict members from potentially good deals Dont know
Also they may be members of several similar forums but post little on one eg I'm a member of an American bmw site that I had not posted on for 2 yeas until advertising some rare wheels I knew would be more popular on there this week. I phrased my advert accordingly and got nothing but positive comments from the yanks Surprised

Of course unofficially it would not be as much fun Bandit
