    Hi, I heard that Macrumors has a tight-knit marketplace area that I would be interested in joining.

    Having traded for a long time on RFD it would be a pleasure to join the exclusive Macrumors Marketplace.

    The marketplace is only accessible if you have at least 250 posts and have been a member for 6 months.

    Exactly. And the key word in that sentence is 'and'.

    To the OP: Thus, there are two requirements: The first is the number of posts (it must be 250) an the second is the length of time (6 months); both requirements must be met before you will be allowed entry to the marketplace.

    While that might be true, the marketplace forum is not the focus of MacRumors, we are a discussion forum for Apple products, which also offers the opportunity to sell/buy here. As its not our main focus but rather discussing Apple products we have as noted above a 250 post/6 month member requirement. This requirement is set so that as a member people get to know you and you have interact in our discussion forums.

    This paragraph from the Marketplace Rules explains a bit more:

    How do you see how many points you have?

    Okay found it, thank you. How does one acquire points? I am pretty active on here but don't appear to have any... :/

    EDIT:
    Nevermind.. I read the original reply wrong and saw "points" instead of "posts"

    Yes, its not points but rather posts, and with the exception of a handful of forums, you make a post it increases your post count. PRSI, Marketplace and Console Games and Code Sharing and Software Promos forums do not increase your post count
