I'm seeing too many new users come on, put out about 30 posts in a quick time period, sell something on the For Sale section - and then disappear completely. Whether or not they are good sellers is not the point.
My suggestion: minimum 1 year since registration date + minimum of 100 posts.
This would help fight the occurrence of the quick registration/post/sell type users. Unless someone is seriously going to be part of this community, they'll probably forget they had an account here for a year. Also, putting up 100 posts is also a bit more of task than 30 or whatever it is now.

On the one hand, I appreciate why they have been changed (to keep the "community" feel and to filter out people who just want to sell). However, just because someone doesn't post to the forums, doesn't mean they aren't reading them and participating in that way (me, for example; I rarely feel like I have anything important enough to post, but I learn from others' posts all the time). Also, I'm not sure what is wrong with people selling things here if there are folks who want to buy them.
Seems like an unintended consequence of this new rule could be a bunch of worthless posts, so people can get above the minimum threshold, and who wants to have to wade through those?
I think OP has here somethingto say and it's right. Btw what the new rule o f number of posts?
I guess it is the similar feeling when the "pro cycling chat " was limited awhile ago.
IMHO while it does bring some benefit , the traffic to this forum was effected after the pro cycling chat dilemma and I am sure it will happen again this is case .
well.. what do i know I am just a lurker that logs on to this forum almost everyday and hardly post anything since 2006.
