Okay well I'm trying to sell a hardtop on here so I guess I'm about to litter this thread with posts to get around the ridiculous ten post rule.

This website is seriously spaghetti. This is why people my parents age think the internet is too daunting.

Did you read why? I am probably your parents age (52) and have no problem with this rule as I have been a member of other forums that required 200 posts as well as 1 month on the board.

This is really minor EXCEPT to the younger generation that expects everything right now. Wow you might have to wait 10 minutes to buy something or PM someone.

And if you read you only needed 5 posts...............

It isn't needing to make ten posts that is annoying- that makes sense. It's the fact that I had to figure out that there is actually a reason for PMs not being available to me, other than core functionality just being totally missing, and then I had go thread diving to find out how to take care of it. I can think of a great number of ways this could have been done more clearly, for instance, displaying the PM button but having it inaccessible until the requirement is met, with the explanation for why next to it. With how much power web developers have now, users shouldn't be left guessing what the intent of the developer was. It shouldn't just be the younger generations expecting usage instructions to be clear. But hey, maybe you like the challenge of learning how to navigate and properly use monolithic and impenetrable web forums that you depend on...
That being said, even if the design isn't perfect, I appreciate that someone is maintaining this website, as it is a really useful forum. So, I'd like to stop trashing it now, before the mods get angry with me. Sorry if I upset you, mate.

You should have received an email when you joined advising you of the 5 post rule. Let me know if you didn't.

I just ran a test account. It was never added. I will let AG know and ask why it was never done.

No upset just pointing out what's wrong with the "me" generation. You wasted far more time posting in this thread than it would have taken you to find the answers.

Not very cryptic, so yes don't trash the forum and maybe a bit of respect for the good folks here would go a long ways.

This is why we asked to add it to the email when you first sign up, although most people don't read that either.

Once you've surpassed 5 posts, you can buy items in the classifieds section. Let us know if you're having issues accessing that or anything else and if you're seeing an error (if so, what does it say? Screenshots are helpful!).


Cheers,
Nate

I have over 10 posts but cannot PM. Is this an issue of trying to do it on an iPhone, or is there a minimum time limit from when you join to when you can PM (in addition to the 10 post rule)?

Thanks,
Dave
