    Default Why can't I post in the Trading Post section

    As 6-11-2012 if you have not READ the site rules and posted in the Rules Thread acknowledging that you have READ the rules you will no longer be able to post in the Trading Post section.

    This does NOT mean you just go in and post you need to actually read the rules.

    Once again here is the thread RULES: Must Read, and acknowledge BEFORE posting in the Trading Post

    One thing to add: The system will handle acknowledgments automatically. You do not have to wait for or ask an admin/mod to grant you posting access after acknowledgment.

    SO:

    1. Yes, if your acknowledgement was lost, you have to re-do it. The system has no idea whether or not you had one there before the crash.
    2. As soon as you acknowledge, you will be granted access nearly immediately (as long as it takes the server to update the DB, usually seconds or less)
    3. It is a problem for users new and old. We have had many 700+ post members, and some 4 digit post members have to acknowledge. Some had for sale threads going at the time, which I found a little humorous.
    4. It is a policy for everyone. Nobody is being singled out or granted immunity. One of the perks/drawbacks of the automated system. All it can tell is whether you have acknowledged in the thread as it stands now, and have passed the probationary 30 days, it knows nothing else about you.
