The rules were put in place to stop members from being ripped off by scammers. It wasn't preventative, rather (and unfortunately) reactionary to what was a continual concern.

If you feel these rules too onerous, a "hardship" or any other form (of the many) discriminations you've so eloquently made an analogy for then it could your voluntary membership (in which the 'newbie rules' were well established when you joined) to WW might need reconsideration.

I have three outgoing private messages that don't ever seem to get delivered. Some a more than a month old now. Is this an issue on my end, or is it just that the members on the receiving end haven't logged in to collect them?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

*edit*

I should add that all three of the outgoing messages were sent to members of the board with more than 60 post counts.

Unless they open it, it'll remain in your Outbox.

FWIW I have the same.

I can´t seem to find the classifieds section. Does that have something to do with me not having posted enough? Or am I really getting blind?

Well, if you would have read through this topic. You would have seen that you need 30 posts in order to 'unlock' the marketplace.

Thanks

To be honest, I really do wish the 30 was decreased - Not to be rude but I am currently in the market for a C59, some chap advertised one the other day (which I saw by accident without logging in) and I now can't get hold of him/or tell him link isn't working ... shame really

We understand the frustration Molotov, however sadly the spammers forced our hand.

Hope this is an appropriate place to post this newbie question:

When I make a post on a thread, do the users I am trying to communicate with know that my post has been made? (I don't see a notification when someone else posts after I have posted.) Do I have to hope that other people are manually checking for new posts on all their old threads?

Thanks for any advice that might make this clear to me.

There are no email post notifications, like Road Bike Review, automatically enabled.

In your 'profile' and under 'board preferences' you can click on 'edit posting defaults' to enable being notified of a reply. But again, not a default option. And no, we have no idea if a user has enabled it or not.

So to answer your question, yes you do need to rely on them checking or having notifications in place.
