TeamRX8 Yeah, I canít even PM an admin or contact anyone in anyway, or at least itís not ready visible on how to do so. Not everyone is a bright green noob or dirtbag spammer. This is not thought through well at all.

TeamRX8 Iím not a scammer, Iím not a noob. Iím not even a Lotus guy, just a car guy/racer. I only came here because while researching a topic I came across posts on forum members needing help, which I found something they were looking for. My first post went through ok, after that Iím hung up on admin approval. You canít get to 5 posts if theyíre stuck waiting on someone to finally get around to it. I canít pm anyone because I donít have 5 posts. I only came here to help your members, but youíre making it so difficult that itís almost not worth the bother. Good intentions, bad results. Itís not my intention to be rude or complain; this is just the truth of the situation and you should be aware of it.

Kubera I agree with Doge, this forum is not just a marketplace, it is also a Lotus Community.

esseye Or, for that matter, if you just want to sell parts and don't want to participate on the forum in any other way, just put them up on ebay or craigslist. No reason to advertise them here.

Would you rather see all the spam posts and links in all sections of the forum? If you have an easier way to help combat the spammers, please enlighten us. Maybe we kind of like people to be part of the community before being able to sell things? Not trying to be an ass, but you are acting like making 5 posts around the forum is a big deal. I could understand the frustration if it was maybe 50 or 100 posts.

Not sure about you, but I, or the staff doesnít have the time to dedicate to go through each new individual registration to verify info. Not sure if you have seen how many members the forum has or not, but, none of us have that kind of time to dedicate to the forum, especially since we are all volunteers.

This is so NOT right having to post 5 unnecessary posts just so you can participate in this website!

rasheemo same here, have more than 5 posts and still cant PM
04-25-2019 07:57 PM
Wilsoch I have to agree with this. I just joined, want to PM a member selling a car, but don't want to clog up the forum.

jdolluc Seems like that's an "anti-spam" feature. Eventually the mods will "release" your posts.
04-19-2019 11:11 AM
cirving Same as everyone else, posts not showing up, "waiting on moderator approval"
03-29-2019 12:20 PM
jdolluc Why don't any of my replies show up?? It's kinda annoying..I started a thread just fine, but when trying to give responses they just don't show up...

Does anyone have any experience or can provide any assistance in getting my 1989 Lotus Esprit imported into Indonesia?

Look forward to receiving your replies.

Many Thanks n advance

Paul.

DrHeLpErZx How come all my posts have to wait for moderator approval? Anyway to lift that restriction?

I'm happy to adjust whatever I may be doing wrong. Thank you! Appreciate this forum - thx!
I have suffered similar fates. I read these stickies and didn't see anything about posting limitations, but my replies kept disappearing. I still don't know why, so I've just had to reply in my mind.
