Needing 25 posts to sell a car sucks!

I joined the forum today in hopes of putting up my car for sale, only to find out I first need 25 posts...

And (appearantly) they can't be trivial posts either. I missed out on a South Dakotan turbo set up a few years back because I didn't post enough in time.
Oh well, thems the brakes sometimes.

Its for the safety of our members and to keep scammers and fraud off the site. That and we would like you all to benefit from the community, not just so you can unload your stuff. There is also a requirement for you to be a member for 30 days
Focus Fanatics - Member Rules

If your car is in good shape and priced well, members who need a car will find it through more traditional methods. Either way, check out the forum and put it to use; lots of good info here and people to talk to. Plenty of tips and info to get your car in good shape before selling, get the most you can out of it $$ Lots of write ups on wear items due to mileage or age

There isnt a post requirement to buy things, just to sell them

I can see your frustration, but, I can almost guarantee if there was a vote among current members, the current policy would be supported. Takes away so many spammers and scammers.

I know it has been a month but it should be noted that intentionally inflating posts without actually contributing can lead to meeting the ban hammer.
