    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 or have very low activity outside of it.

    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 their undesirable 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.

    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. :)
