Default Access to Marketplace

How come I can not access the posts in the "Marketplace" ??

I am logged in and obviously can post in the other forums. All I want to do is read the ads in the Marketplace, but I get a message saying I don't have permission. I sent an e-mail to the board, but no answer yet.

Thanks,

-ED-

From the Marketplace description:

Quote:
You must have at least 20 posts on PhotoCamel to list items here.

I think what he might be getting at is why he can't view the items. The rules state you can't list items, but nothing about viewing them.

I think the rules imply that you can't view items either until you reach 20 posts.

Ah, but even I was confused at first. I think it might better to inform us that we won't have access to that particular forum until we have 20 posts. Leaving it to implication is far too risky.

The 20 post rule is a new one instituted several weeks ago to prevent spamming.

Ed,

You only need 4 more posts to qualify. Respond here 4 times and you in!

Sorry... I did not know about the new rules.... especially since I have viewed and purchased items from the Marketplace in the past.


Thanks,

The rule was placed to stop people from posting. Not from viewing. Thus, we are looking at it...
