    Advertising

    Gentlemen and Ladies,

    It has come to our attention that of late people who are joining this site are trying to take full advantage of a very successful and growing site, and ADVERTISING, within the first few posts

    WE are now getting rather tired of asking. IF YOU WANT TO ADVERTISE ASK AND THEN PAY!!

    We have no problem with people advertising in the classified section for personal items etc, but anyone selling stalking, goods, taxidermy etc will be expected to pay for the privelage of advertising.

    It costs money to run the site and our bloody time, which we do not charge for!! Those who join from now on and just advertise straight away will be banned straight away.

    I've just tried to post in classifieds and hit the 10 post rule, is this a new thing to combat commercialism?
    Anyway, this is my 10th post since months as a member (maybe a membership period could be applied also!) so I'll be back in a few hours to see if anyone has a 4 gun/rifle cabinet for sale - In the North of Jockland.

    Sorry, but we were finding that people were taking advantage of the classified section just to sell their products. We/Admin try to patrol this site and make sure that members have the use of the site that they deserve. Its not easy, and as the site has become more popular over the last year we are finding that people are trying to take advantage by thinking they can advertise for free.

    These people will be banned straight away from now on.

    If you have a personal item for sale please contact Alex, CSL on the site and I am sure he will help as much as is possible.

    10 posts before advertising something in classified section doesn't sound unreasonable to me...

    You're on ten posts now so you should be able to post now. The system can take up to an hour after the 10th post to make the change to your account.

    In the site's old format there was a tab to various service providers, gundealers, sporting agents etc. Could you add that again and charge for inclusion, a bit like being in Yellow pages?? Might help a bit with the cash flow??

    Best

    Maybe it would be an idea to put in a stalking wanted section with the same rule. I noted another first post stalking wanted last night,
