Default 25 post requirement for classifieds?

I understand the requirement to prevent people from just wanting to use the site to sell stuff. However, the requirement also prevents one from asking for help finding something in the Wanted section. I have my first viv set up, and the plants established. I do not intend to waste people's time with 20 useless posts.
Your thoughts?

That's correct and unfortunately the rules.The wanted section is part of the classifieds and requires 25 MEANINGFUL posts and an undisclosed waiting period which is random and we have no control of it.If you get into a good conversation,the posts can add up pretty quick.Thanks for understanding and have a good night.

And you can use the PM function ANY time (I think).

Well, do you have the art of fruit fly culturing down yet? Do you have a QT container setup? You don't have an all screen lid do you? Did you seed your tank with springtails and isopods?

I think this is also because dendroboard is an attempt for a community. The main purpose of the boards isn't to be a marketplace. We want to emphasize the sharing of information over buying and trading livestock. And this is where the min limit comes from.

So post! Introduce yourself to your regional froggers, maybe share your frogs or vivs, or perhaps science and conservation is your thing? We even have a place to discuss non-frog, 'off subject' topics.

That is true. I wish you were required to post 100 times. You get guys that get their 25, get their frogs and then come back asking why their frogs are dead.

I found that you can sneak in some "attaboys" and "nice frogs" here and there. I guess the mods found meaning in them.

Long as you don't try to do 25 of these in an hour and then post in Classifieds (and then find out you CANNOT - because of the time limitation as well).

For some members, such as myself, we would rather learn from reading the past posts. If a new person posts a question there are some who are quick to jump and say did you do a search, there are many posts on that topic already. Being a new member can be scary sometimes.

If you have done a good bit of research then I'm sure you have plenty to offer other newer members.... Maybe if you see a question similar to ones you had you can post about it. Sometimes even just providing a link to a great thread/sticky/whatever can be helpful.

As the frogs I am looking for are slightly larger, I do not think fruit fly culturing is necessary. I do have everything else set up, including the spring tales.

I don't think that is going to be much help. I do not see the frogs I am looking for being advertised. It would be odd to just message people at random asking if they know where I can find Kassina Senegalensis.

At this point I do not have frogs to share yet. I have posted on the regional board, but not heard back from anyone. I may check out the science and conservation section.

You had made it sound to me like you were answering Wanted Ads. That's when a PM would help.

That particular genre of frogs is not well represented here.

While I have not had much to add, I have spent a lot of time reading what others have shared. Fortunately, I did this before getting frogs. I learned a lot, both here and on the neherpetoculture site. I took out all the stuff I got from the pet store and completely rebuilt my viv. That was a few months ago. The plants and micro fauna are both well established in the tank.

You're almost there already now anyway,but Mike Novy at rain forest junkies may have or know where to get what you're looking for.You'd be surprised how many times people pm me for certain animals,even some I've never worked with.People are pretty good here like that.Check out our sponsors too,some may be able to help out too and they don't mind pms or email questions either.
