    Just now noticed that there's no
    For Sale/WTT forums on here. Am I missing something? Thanks.

    There's a marketplace - catch is to be a member for minimum 6 months and have at least 250 posts.

    You can read more about how and when you can access the Marketplace in our FAQ.

    Where is the Marketplace forum?

    Time (as in six months membership of the forum) and number of posts - (250) combined - will give you access to the Marketplace.

    You've met the 6 month requirement obviously, but you still have to achieve the 250 post requirement.

    There is no grace for long-term members to get exceptions to this either.

    You just have to begin to participate more.

    Once you hit the 6 month/250 post count limits, does the forum immediately appear, or is there a lag before it becomes visible?

    Thanks!

    You might have to wait several hours or even a day.

    Doesn't this encourage pointless posts?

    I'm pretty sure it does. Like this one. :)

    Pointless, or frivolous posts are removed under the rules.

    LOL just found this--I guess that explains why I can't see it. I've got a ways to go! But I am encouraged by the users on this forum. It seems REALLY good for Mac info.

    I've been a PC user for 20+ years, so I've a lot left to learn!

    Well at least you are using the search feature, rather than creating a new thread! 6 months will fly by on Macrumors. Welcome to the forum.

    Is it enabled manually (like, by a mod or someone?), or is there some sort of automatic process?

    It's automatic once the servers do a refresh.
