We regularly receive suggestions for changes in the Marketplace forum, for which we thank you. One such suggestion has been implemented as of today. As you will see in the For Sale/Trade Policy (Marketplace Rules), we have a new rule for sellers: To start a Marketplace thread, you must be a forum members of status "Regular" or above, which means that you have 100 or more posts as displayed in your User Profile. This gives other members a chance to become familiar with the seller and helps make the Marketplace a place for personal sales among forum members. (To see your User Profile, click Quick Links -> My Profile at the top of this page.) We realize that this rule involves a tradeoff. Some Mac users have joined MacRumors hoping to make a sale in the Marketplace their first stop, and the rule inhibits that. The flipside is that we have had trouble with Marketplace threads by first-time posters unfamiliar to other members, and some businesses have violated the rules against commercial sales by joining only to post there. A Newbie becomes a Member at 30 posts and a Regular at 100 posts. We hope that new members won't spam the forums simply to reach Marketplace eligibility. Such posts are routinely reported and deleted. Instead, we hope they will take the change to join discussions and meet other members. We're looking for the right balance to make the Marketplace work for private sales between MacRumors forum members and avoid opportunists and those without credibility. We'd like to see the Marketplace run without a high level of moderation, which should benefit not only the moderators but members using the Marketplace too. Thanks for your cooperation and support. Suggestions and feedback on the rules and Marketplace forum are welcome as always.
