    I hit 250 posts and been here 1.5 years and still do not see the forsale forums. Any ideas?

    Takes a little while for the servers to catch up to you
    You just hit 250 and this was 251

    I checked and you're back down to 249 posts.

    Seems you got a couple of posts deleted for moaning about this ;)

    Umm I did and it never showed up. It did the next day finally.

    Wow, I am amazed that some of my posts got deleted for no reason. :rolleyes:

    Most likely you posted in a thread that got moved to a forum where the posts don't count like Wasteland or PRSI.

    I had no idea there were such forums!

    I lurk mostly and don't post often. I would love to lurk in the for sale forums. Since I don't post often, I could use some advice on how to get my post count above 250 without looking like a jerk. Any advice?

    Look for threads where people ask questions and post sensible, helpful answers: the Forum Spy may help to see such threads early.

    It's a conspiracy. Really. It's totally personal too. I swear.

    OTOH, threads are always being waste-landed and such ... it happens. Best to aim for 260.

    Or get involved in a Community thread, like the NFL Football or the College Football threads, or some other topic that interests you

    As long as you've been here, surely you're not asking what Forum Spy is!

    To get a higher average post count (more than 26/d):

    With your post count, you should have at least read the forum rules and FAQ by now.

    You can stalk or spy what is going on on MacRumors: Forums.

    If you have loaded Forum Spy, you see every post made since you loaded Forum Spy and can keep track of it and even your own subscriptions.

    EDIT:



    I knew it, as soon as I wrote "If you have loaded Forum Spy", GGJStudios and someone else would post before I could do it, and they posted a much simpler answer.

    :D strange déjà vu.

    Which is why I didn’t bother! :p

    I guess he hasn’t. Wow!

    @liamkp: Just some advice, but you might want to step back and read through the FAQ and Forum Rules and the links therein like this one, which gives you a bunch of stuff to read. You’ll be better for it, and it’ll keep you from asking questions like this.
