Attention all Members

A while back we started a new rule for accessing the For Sale/Wanted Ads on this forum, which requires a member to have a minimum of 10 posts on the site before they gain access to this section.  The reason for this should be obvious; the safety of our hardcore members.  The 10 post minimum reduces the likelihood of scammers being able to take advantage of our members.  Also, it is good practice to introduce your self before doing business with someone, especially when doing business over the internet.  In other words; It’s just good manners.

With that said, there are obviously good and bad ways to rack up your 10 posts.  Lately, there have been TOO MANY frivolous posts being made with the sole intent of racking up the post count.

Posts such as the following just don’t cut it, and will be deleted.
“I guess I need to make 10 posts before I can look at them... 2 down, 8 to go!!”
“I must be getting closer to 10???”
“This is my tenth post now”
“Haha, this is my 10th.  Let's see whats for sale!”

Now, it is understood that not all members want to make posts in the tech sections.  Some folks don’t feel they have anything to contribute, and others just prefer to read.  
That is ok!
There are several current threads that will help you increase your post count, while sharing some info about you and your project.  The following are some examples…

‘Stop in and Introduce Yourself’
http://sbftech.com/index.php/topic,43.0.html

‘What are you a Professional at?’
http://sbftech.com/index.php/topic,5130.0.html

‘How did you hear about SBFTech.com?’
http://sbftech.com/index.php/topic,620.0/topicseen.html

Create a new thread in this section telling us about yourself and/or your project...
http://sbftech.com/index.php/board,12.0.html

Maybe introduce yourself to other members in your area?
http://sbftech.com/index.php/board,70.0.html

These threads allow you the opportunity to introduce yourself to our community, while increasing your post count in a meaningful way.

As always, if anyone has questions regarding this rule, or anything else on the site, then please contact myself or one of the other staff members here.
We are here to help.

Regarding vendors and other service providers that wish to advertise their products or services at SBFTECH:

We prohibit the advertising and solicitation of products and/or services from businesses and/or their agents without prior express written consent from one of the Administrators of this forum.  While we welcome most businesses to become a site sponsor here at SBFTECH, being such involves a monetary commitment.  Send a PM to one of the Administrators of this forum if you wish to become a site sponsor.

If you are unsure if the selling or advertising of your products or services requires you to first become a site sponsor, please PM an Administrator of this forum for clarification or permission BEFORE you make such a post or listing a business in your signature.  The issuance of warnings may or may not be given to violators of this rule.  Thank you.
The Management,

The Management,


The statement above has been changed as follows:

  • 2- Stroke members have "Read Only" access to the classifieds now, just as a Guest does.
  • The 10-post minimum count is still in effect for replying to existent threads or starting new ones. IOW, the minimum post requirements to be able to actively post in the Classifieds IS in effect.
  • If this change causes any problems in terms of negative experiences, it will be changed back to the original status described above.

Again...... Welcome ... and we know that you will appreciate the extra security precautions we take for our membership, specially now that you have become part of it.
