Re: Anyone else comfused about posting requirements?

Ladymum, how do you think most of us got to such high post counts? Frankly if I have the option of buying one item at a great price from a newbie with no posts and the same item at a higher price from an established member, 10 to 1 I will choose the more expensive item. A lot of other mamas here feel the same way.

I felt that way too, but now I have reached my 5 posts and I have been able to buy two things so far! Yay! I was so excited when I could finally PM people. I actually started to get responses back.

I don't know where to make #4. And I'd feel guilty bumping older posts with my pointless ones.

Re: Anyone else comfused about posting requirements?

Hmmm, I understand where you mamas are coming from, when you sign up here and are really interested in buying and selling, the restrictions are annoying. On the other hand though, there is the risk of scamming and dishonesty here, so taking the time to get a little established, becoming familiar with the rules of FSOT goes a long way. I for one tend to check on the post content at times if I feel not a 100% about someone who I want to BST with. If I read "Pointless Post 1-5", I'd probably walk away from the transaction, while a mama having lots of interest in diaper questions or taking the time discussing her little ones gives me confidence to deal with. Not to say that the mamas getting their post count up by "nonsense posts" aren't honest and others willing to share info are but we are dealing with strangers here and have to get a vibe about each other somehow...
Just my two cents...
