    How about you geniuses put a town, city or county where you live instead of a state?? 100'S of noobs on this site have 2 posts, both in classified and list their state as location. Makes a big difference if you are in Portland or Medford when it comes to buying something. Should have a minimum post count before being able to sell on here!!!!

    I agree with the minimum post count. 50 should be the rule.

    Min post count might not work, then people would just post random comments on threads to get to that min. I think you should have to be a member for 6 months or so before you can sell something.

    Not everyone is an extrovert. Impliment such a rule and there would be lots of '+1', ':thumbup:' and 'agreed' posts till they make 50.

    What would be the point? Some people's sole purpose is to come here to buy and sell things, adding such rules would just make people go to some other site. Feedback score is much more telling than post count.

    But I agree with the "location" information. It is aggravating.

    I see you joined in Nov, 2012 and have a feedback score of 1 for a purchase.

    How about if you had to be a member for 6 months, before you could "buy or sell"....

    There seems to be a high level of hypocracy in this thread....

    If you start requiring a 50 post count you're going to get people who post 50 of these ^^^ just to meet their quota. It's been discussed time and time again and it's not worth filling the forums with that many useless posts.

    The location thing really doesn't bother me unless your selling. My location is pnw but whenever I sell anything I put in the ad exactly where I am and where I can meet up at.

    It always amazes me when someone puts every detail about the item they are selling in their ad but then fails to follow up with the exact condition of meeting with perspective buyers.
