Or, if I'm not allowed to comment on a thread perhaps it shouldn't be possible to?...
It's a bit nonsensical to be able to contribute 7 or 8 post to a thread in an informative discussion to then have them deleted, regardless of context?
After all, as you yourself said on the previous page to a new member who wasn't posting-

"We are a shooting community where we like to discuss gun ownership and shooting. We expect members to contribute and not just take from the forum as that is the only way we thrive".

So it's a little galling when I try to contribute & it gets deleted!...

It is clearly stated that new users are not allowed in the for sale/wanted section.

No matter how you twist and turn it, you as a newly registered user are not allowed in.

You very likely would have found the thread by using the search function which we have decided should remain open to all users.
Please refrain from posting in the for sale/wanted section until you have 15 meaningful contributory posts.

The house rules are there for everybody's protection.

If you are only here for the for sale/wanted section you are going to be so disappointed.

I am lost here. Why can't a member with 41 posts, post on or even access the for sale and wanted lists. You mentioned he had to have 15 posts to his name.
I am probably being stupid or something but I don't see it. The only reason why seems, he hasn't posted replies up to 15 posts on that page. Am I right?
What is the secret with the For sale and wanted lists.


I don't think there's any secret. The 15 post requirement is to stop people coming onto the forum just to sell their wares. Most forums have similar rules.
