You need 25 posts to get Classifieds access.

This policy was set up to keep Scammers from stopping in for the express purpose of selling non-existent frogs to people who should know better.

Unfortunately Admins nor Vertical Scope can help you with this (it's been tried before by long timers who do not post a lot). The only thing that will do it will be 25 posts.

For newbs - it's 25 posts and an undetermined amount of time. Pretty sure you have the "time" part done already.

Sorry about that.

Yeah, it puts less experienced froggers in a position that they have to just ask a bunch of questions, most of which can be googled. I don't post unless I have something to add, so I've been trying to get to 25 legit, but it's been taking a long time. Can I just sign up for a background check?

Sorry. Sincerely.

If people would just do more background on who they buy from - we'd not be in this situation.

But we were getting people signing up expressly to scam people who should know better. Kind of puts us between a rock and a hard place.

All, this is just an idea as I do see a lot of members who just read posts for the most part and you definitely see users post useless stuff trying to get up to 25 - so what about having two ways to get access? 1. 25 posts plus some undisclosed amount of time, or 2. A whole bunch of time (and maybe 5 posts or something)? Seems like scammers are extremely unlikely to be in it for the "long con", as it were, so simply being a member for a very long time seems like it will weed out those types. Anyway, just throwing that out there. I live the forum and have learned so much! My frogs are also very happy about that, even if they don't know it...

You'd be amazed.

We had one person who was fairly notorious here (he's long gone - we hope).

He laid down 7 or 8 profiles. He'd use them now and again so they left a trail. Then, as he got in trouble and would get kicked out, he'd switch to another profile.

Unfortunately scammers would rather try to be clever than honest.

I stand corrected. And a little more cynical than I was before
