New member dont have access to the buy/sell/trade section to help cut down on scams.

Last i knew it was 300 posts and 1 year membership to gain access, but i think they lowered it to 150 posts and 6 months membership.

Sit back, relax, post some builds, and before you know it your time is up and you'll be able to buy and sell at your hearts content.

Welcome to the forum !!

I think they halved it to 150 posts and 6 months? It's all in the "Rules/FAQ" section just under the banner at the top of your page.

Buy/Sale/Trade


New members are not allowed to access the Buy/Sale/Trade area until they have been registered for at least one year, or have been registered for 180 days and accumulated 150 posts or more. Once the criteria is met, the For Sale forum will show up automatically, and you can begin using it. (Usergroup promotions are ran once an hour.) Just to be thorough, this means no wanted or for sale/trade threads are to be posted anywhere else on the forum before or after you've gained access to the Buy/Sale/Trade forum!

there's a 6 month option too, as stated above. Its not so bad, start sharing and reading and you'll have the post count in no time.

It could be worse; used to be 1yr and 300 post count. That's what it was for me, but I didn't care b/c I didn't come here for the b/s/t section. I came because all these great builds here drew me in and now I can't stay away!

Just to expand on what has already been said, it was changed to protect our membership from a rash of thiefs. Unfortunately one bad apple can spoil the bunch and this was what was decided by a membership vote. It was as said 300 post and 1yr, now we have modified it to 6 months and 150 posts for most members.

The BST is not a right of forum membership, nor do we consider it a true necessity, it is a privelege given to our participating members. The time allotment gives the rest of the membership the chance to get to know you and make their decision to trade or buy from you easier.

So just enjoy the forum and the BST will be available to you before you know it.

After all of that if someone finds this forum they are looking.
there should be a wanted section separate from sales so if your new you can buy into at used prices not pay retail just to see if its your cup of tea
just something to think about

Bob, that is a very good point but the bottom line is it's much easier for the Admins or Mods to keep everything running smooth when the BST is an all or nothing situation.

Hard to get into the hobby without a truck. I came for the BST section but I get the reasoning. I don't have 150 posts and 6 months to wait before I buy. It seems like getting a well sorted truck is the way to go, even if a little used.

I'm not in it for the full blown experience, just thought it would be cool to get one or two to play around with.

It does make you wonder how all the other forums can do it without such extreme rules. This isn't the only forum that gets spam...

Lazy admin?

You do realize that we admins and mods have jobs, families, lives, etc. and receive no form of compensation for our time. Plus we like to have time for the hobby as well. The mods didn't make the rules any way it was voted on by the membership of this forum about 3yrs ago now, so if you are here for the BST then you came to the wrong forum, if you are here to have a good time, enjoy the talented builds, and develop friendship and comraderie then this is the right place.

Discosux: Get yourself an inexpensive kit (Tower Hobbies has the SCX10 Dingo for $175 right now) build it, sort it, learn and have fun. Then you'll want to take part in the forum; suddenly the Buy/ Sell/Trade section will appear before you know it...
