8) The Buy/Trade/Sell area is a privilege.
It is not a right. You must earn you way into this area with having 100 posts. As with the signatures spamming you way to 100 posts will get you disbarred from this area. The B/S/T area has a very special set of rules to follow. Read up on them so you know them before you get access and start to post there.

You need 100 posts. You have 72 as of this post. Keep posting .

Not a problem. That's our fault. Must have slipped by us.

We'll fix it. Thanks for pointing it out .

Correct we adjusted them to reflect the situation, mods an Smods like myself can not edit that much of a members profile.

Correct. Member's profiles, as well as the requirements for the usergroups, fall within the sole realm of the admins.

The requirement for B/S/T used to be 40 posts, but we had many who were running up a fast post count to get into it. By setting it to 100 posts, the members no have an opportunity to get to know each other a bit, as buying and selling online involves a matter or trust.
