    I too have "insufficient privilege" to reply to For Sale ads, even though I have been a "member" for over 5 years. I thought the purpose of the Forum was for members to sell items. I would like to buy an item, but can't reply. Doesn't make sense to me.

    the purpose of the forum is for discussion. the sales area is for a member to sell a used item they no longer need. to use the sales area you have to participate in the discussions. so you need to make 48 QUALITY posts that contribute something of value to the forum.

    so just so you are aware when you start participating, if yer posting senseless crap plan on having it deleted and you getting a time out so make em good ones ok :))

    wvskeet, Here is some input on your question.
    TRAPSHOOTERS.COM was founded as a trapshooting discussion forum first and foremost with a for sale by participating members and a vendors section secondary to the discussion part.

    If the sole purpose of Trapshooters.com was to just be a sales site then we would just be like gunbroker---guns America and the various other online sites that are out there.

    So to understand you correctly you are saying that the purpose of the forum is for members to sell items??????
    The basic definition of a FORUM is a place either public or online that is used for discussion of topics.

    At times we see members who are not on the forum a lot so are surprised when there was a change in there rules for access to the for sale by members ect. Please read the rules at the top of the for sale section. Thanks George

    Instead of telling me to read the rules why not tell me what's wrong? We can only post one ad ? That is really not clear. Thanks for the heads up.

    I did tell you what was wrong multiple open ads. they were deleted.
    For Sale - RULES FOR USING THE FOR SALE BY MEMBERS/WANT TO BUY/WANT TO TRADE SECTIONS
    take note of section 4. I even pasted it here to make it easier for ya.
    HOW MANY ADS CAN A MEMBER POST?
    • A member can have ONE ad running at a time till marked SOLD
    • LISTING ONLY ONE FIREARM AT A TIME IS ALLOWED.
    • ONE USED ITEM PER AD AT A TIME until it is marked SOLD!
    • Multiple items can only be listed if it is a "set" and all items sell for one set price.

    Thanks, all things change. It would be nice if instead of dropping ads the first would stay. and the next not posted. I am a long time member.

    long time members that are active on the forum should KNOW the rules from all the active topics on the subject. when the rules are broken all ads go.

    If you look at your membership block where your screen name is on the left hand side you will see the following:
    Joined: april 3 2015
    MEASSAGES: 39
    Location: Kansas City area

    so you need 11 posts to reach the 50 post threshold. Please follow the posting rules for decent open forum posts. Thanks George

    I think I extended my status as a site "supporter " but have not received confirmation. Wondering if I did something incorrectly.

    Thanks for your time.
