    With me being new and a computer novice it will take me a liitle time to get youst to navigateing your sight. I am not having a pop i was just intrested in the thinking behind it.
    As i can tell it appears you lot have had your fair share of scum bags to deal with. As time will tell i am not one of them.

    to be fair you were NOT selling anything! you just needed to sort a problem with your lights, i can understand the rules of 3 months as a member not a problem,but the 100 posts i feel is a little bit excessive, but i understand the rules and will stick to them even if it takes 12 months to get to 100 posts,but please remember not everyone is Dick Turpin there are still some decent people out there

    Its the minority that ruins it for the majority...Do you not think the scam artists also don't say all the right things?Remember this is a forum NOT a shop.How many times do we have to say there is always Ebay,Gumtree etc...The rules are not excessive because they work...when they were not in place we got caught-now they are in place we haven't been caught out.Remember too that its for your benefit that we have these rules.They are not going to change.

    sorry guys I didnt mean to upset anybody,I did not ask for rules to be changed! as i said I have read the rules and will abide by them no probs,and I know they are there to help protect genuine members.
    I think this is a great forum and wouldnt want it ruined by cowboys,I was just saying!!

    sorry guys,
    John.

    lol at 'do your time'!!!!!!!

    I agree with what has been said, Lamper and others are right on the money.
    It does seem a bit Big Brotherish and for that we/I apologise but some members got ripped off badly and all but one of them got the money back after the police got involved.

    However it flagged up just how easy it is to rip innocent people off over the internet, and as a result we had t toughen up the criteria to protect forum members and ourselves.

    Remember, we DONT get paid for people selling their stuff on here and the bucket loads of grief that come when someone gets ripped off is not something we like having to deal with.

    Even though the for sale forums are used 'at your own risk' we as a forum have a conscience and dont like scumbags

    But the time will pass quickly for sure and you will then see the benefits when using that section I hope

    I think the forum has it spot on

    I have tried selling on the forum myself and to be honest I had a few things shift but nearly all of my stuff has sold on ebay.

    I now use this for my posting up the progress on my threads and ebay for my selling. This forum at the end of the day is a BMW Forum not a free auction site and ALL of the long standing members support the Moderators/Administrators ruling
