Default Posting to classifieds & sending PM's

I've been a member on this forum for over 7 years, though I rarely post. I would like to be able to post in the classifieds section and avoid having to make a bunch of junk posts.

Thanks.

Hello,

You should be able to post in the classifieds. What sort of error message do you receive upon posting?

~KM, community support

DaveHaze, you are aware you need to have 10 posts-count on SaabCentral to be allowed to post in the Classifieds ? This is a forum requirement measure to abate spam posts.

He might have lost a few from spamming.

When reaching the threshold, it will take up to an hour to get your permissions.

Spamming your last postings can get them removed. Ensure your posts are content filled.

Hi. I have owned many wonderful Saabs since 1990 until just a year ago. Sadly, I have let my last ones go (1993 900 convertible and 2005 9.5 wagon with manual transmission).

I have a tan parade boot in excellent condition to sell. How can I post it?

Thanks, Rudy, Dana Point, Ca.

I am have some questions to the administrator. Can someone pm me? It is related to my account posting to the classified section. This site is a great way for people to connect with other Saab enthusiasts.

thank you

Thank You

Go to the forum Report Website Technical Issues. See the thread titled What to do if you need a password reset.

Or, go to the Site Announcements forum and see the thread titled Getting your password reset.

Or go the Lounge forum and see the sticky thread titled Getting your password reset.

Or, scroll down to the bottom of this page (this page you are on right now where you are reading this).
You will see a light blue bar across the page with these words in it:

Contact Us - SaabCentral Forums - Archive - Privacy Statement - Top

See here (look for the big red rectangle in the image immediately below):




After you have clicked the "Contact Us" button, draft an message that provides your old, original username and old, obsolete email address associated with it. Then provide your new username and new, current email address. The admins will take your new email and update your original account/username with that and merge your new account into the old account, with the old, original account being the surviving account.

Is there a way for me to send a PM to a user with less than 10 posts?

No there is not. The 10 post minimum requirement was implemented as a means to help prevent spamming and scamming activity. It is imperfect, and it sometimes works a hardship on new members who are not scammers or bots, but it has been effective.

A good place to get your post count up is to go to the New Member Introductions forum and start a thread introducing yourself. Then open some recent threads created by new members and welcome them to SC. You should be able to get six more posts in that way very quickly. Then wait at least one hour for your new permissions to kick in and see if you can send a PM.

As has been posted, you cannot post an item for sale until you have 10 posts. Your permissions will take up to an hour once you hit the threshold.

Speed or Fluff posts made trying to rush to 10 to sell an item will be deleted and have your classified thread removed. Abuse of this system will have action taken against your account.

You cannot bypass the requirements in any way as they are there to protect the community.
