    The Sales/Wanted section is only visible to registered members, guests cannot see it.

    New members who sign up will not be immediately allowed to view sales and wanted section.

    We will not be divulging the criteria for to see the marketplace, it's automatic and designed to encourage those that participate and contribute in the forum, not those just here to buy and sell.

    New member status isn't something that just goes away with time, you are considered a new member no matter how long you have signed up for if you have never been active outside of the marketplace.

    This has been primarily driven by a few people whose actions saw them banned from sales and then who decided to re-register as a way of circumventing that and continuing this behaviour.

    You also need to use your local town as your location to make use the sales/wanted forum.

    Using the ‘introductions’ subforum for new members is a good starting point.

    I have been using the forum for a couple of years now....mainly gathering information, looking at results (how well.......or badly i performed) and where events and competitions are weekends. I am still very much a learner in the HFT arena so not sure i can have a lot of input at the moment!......but what i have learn ‘t has been very useful!

    Earlier this year i noticed i had access to the For Sale forum, this was great as i began to look at what may be available to buy second hand rather than brand new and maybe the possibility of upgrading my current rifle and other accessories. I am now in a position that i have decided to upgrade and have been looking at different rifles that have been put up for sale recently with a view to buy something.

    I have now lost access. This not only affects me trying to buy something, but also limits the market for the members who are trying to find potential buyers. My only option now to buy from either another selling sites or from a shop. Is there not a way you can stop new members from selling (posting new items)......but allow them access to view and buy?

    Unfortunately not without letting in the people we don't want to let into sales/wanted because of their behaviour. I appreciate that new members may have little to say, but I also think that there's probably more to say than 2 posts in almost 2 years. :)

    Only been on here 4 or 5 weeks and posted 4 or so, not sure what else to post unless there is something that need awnsering or someome else needs awnsering, so go back to my question how long do we have to wait before we can access the full site?

    It's not a problem just be nice to no

    Thanks Rob

    Regards
    Sam

    I have made some posts and they seem to have gone, along with my access to the sales section ?

    You’ve made 1 post outside sales except this one.

    Please read at the top of this post as to why you can’t see sales.
