    Sorry one more scenario I just thought of and not sure if you thought of it.



    Obviously this is to avoid bad deals going on, however could these people not just go to the WTB section and then hawk their stuff by PMing members and ripping them off that way, or will anyone with less that 75 posts be unable to access the WTB forum?

    As a person that has been a member for over 3 years, but doesn't post very much (but have excellent feedback), I think this is a lousy idea. Seems like we are penalizing good long standing members because of a few bad apples. I did not follow the discussion on this, but I sure would have thought we could have come up with a more clever solution to eliminate the folks that are abusing the forum...... sigh

    Guess you guys have enough members. I hope someone starts another site and forgets all about GolfWRX.






    Seriously? All they ask is that people "contribute" a little to the site. The BST is free and it is a privilege it is not a right YOU are given. Go make some meaningful posts and then you can use the BST. If you decide not to start posting...wel then stop complaining!

    Lots of sites use a minimum post rule. This site was long overdue to establish one.

    So I'm guessing that if you want to buy an item and you don't have 75 posts you must PM the seller?




    I am confused by this. I never respond to people who post in my ad that they will take the item. They MUST send me a PM so I can give them my PayPal address.



    So does this rule mean that a person with less than 75 posts can't respond to an ad or can't buy anything by sending a PM to the seller?




    As has been mentioned multiple times in the thread, it does not effect PM capabilites. Just posting in the forum.



    This rule was completely from the community. It was not initiated or decided upon solely or by majority of ownership.

    I think this is a good idea. You have to make a stand and make it fair for everyone. Make it a blanket rule and be done with it. If you have been a member for years and have less than 75 post then start sharing.

    Right on Bro! I totally agree with you. I guess you have to post 75 times otherwise you're untrustworthy. what a crock!




    You do realize that all these short little meaningless posts you are making are not counting towards your post count. biggrin.gif

    The other alternative is to pay for an Ad.

    I could give a hoot about my post count! you ever hear the word discrimination? Ebay works just as well if not better!
  • GxgolferGxgolfer Site Founder & Co-Owner SF Bay Area, CARules Official, Administrator Posts: 26,824 admin
    Ebay does work better. Always has. More exposure, etc.

    Discrimination?? It is their site and they are nice enough to provide a FREE BST. It is not a right whether you like it or not.



    Go to ebay and sell your stuff. You HAVE to pay there. If you can't manage a few posts here and there then your input on the site isn't doing anyone much good anyway

    Does this not worry anybody else???? We all left the other site because of the gestapo.

    Post count does not have anything to do with seller ethics.

    Just my .02 cents.
  • macdubhmacdubh Members Posts: 317 ✭✭✭✭
    I don't think this is all that much of a problem, I tend to read a lot, post a little and sell occasionally. My one purchase here so far went like a dream. This is by far the best golf site out there and I intend to continue to participate. This simply gives me a bit of an incentive to add my 2 **** more than I have in the past. What I expect from this site in terms of bst is a bit more protection from fakes than can be found on ebay. This will certainly be a start and if it has to be tweaked later I trust that it will be.

    ..that is a paypal fee not a wrx fee. On ebay you have EBAY fees. There are no WRX fees unless you want your ad pinned.



    Do some homework before you make a post please

    Can you provide proof of that? Or should we just believe you?
  • bill pbill p Members Posts: 122 ✭✭✭
    I have been on here and using the site for a year and posted a decent amount of posts but still fall short of the required posts. I agree that in the last few months the amount of new people selling on here has gone up a ton. I don't buy and sell a ton so building up feedback is a slow process unless you have a ton of stuff to sell. Either way I will still use the site because I think it is a great site, I just don't think I will be able to sell anything else on the forum for a while. It is too bad some people had make this a requirement. I still thank the site for all that it offers.

    Please clarify what you are saying? Cause if there is another revenue stream, I must be missing it.

    If people are wanting to not post and just use the BST, there are other options.

    I am going to have to argue with the gestapo tactics comment this is a free site that is provided for and maintained by the owners. Although it sucks for those of us who don't have the posts yet, it is clearly being done to try to help the masses and hopefully it will.

    Are the other options you are talking about becoming a charter member. I have looked at it but it seems closer to a donation, not that I am completely against that I just don't have a lot of extra cash at the time to donate to anything. Is there something else that comes with that or am I not understanding the whole thing.

    Thanks
