It's cause we dont' trust noobs. Oh, and you can get 35 reps easy....help doesn't have to be major...
I've been wanting to sell my old Celey D326 ever since I put in my D915, but don't have the "rep" for it. I don't think it's that easy... I'll probably hit 35 sometime in January, maybe even february.

I always thought it was too high myself, the old system and the new system. 25 would be plenty in my opinion... but it's just an opinion.

The for sale/wanted section is a very small part of the overall forum, and in the grand scheme of things, the 35 rep requirement is pretty low. Although it's not the intent of it, you can think of it as additional incentive to be helpful in the forums.
Agreed, the rep may be hard to get for someone but sure is low for being able to be considered trusted to sell properly. I must say the staff who set it that way are actually very nice for that.

Right, a few hundred semi-worthless posts?, LOL
Who ever is this stupid enough to post a (few hundred semi-worthless posts)
when it would be much easier to open 35 bogus accounts and and give themself 35 reps and on top of that they could give each account 35reps and scam 35 members, LOL

I wanted to post in the Apraisal area also but the REP thing was stopping me to, I have over 400 post's and 21 Reps, I've given out over 100Reps easy and it's still off limits to me

The rep threshold by no means guarantees scam protection; every once in a while you'll see someone on eBay with 10,000+ feedback that suddenly goes bad. It's just a way to keep people from signing up solely for the reason of making a quick buck at least without having to make a meaningful contribution to the site first. Everyone is encouraged to take appropriate precautions when making deals, regardless of the rep level of the other participant. That being said, the vast majority of deals on the site go very smoothly, and most of the very few that don't go so well are resolved between the members making the deal.

Check out some sites where post count carries some weight. I can recall one game forum I belonged to where members would post stuff like "yeah, what he said" countless times to up their post count. It was totally stupid and pointless, but it did happen. If people want to try the 35 account scam, it would most likely end up with 35 banned accounts.

Just keep plugging away at it. You're nearly two thirds of the way there already. The reason that Appraisals are lumped in with the For Sale section and have the same requirements is because before we had an Appraisal forum, members would post appraisal requests throughout the forums. Those threads all to often evolved into sale threads once prices started flying around.

Yeah what he said

Sorry I could not resist. While I have a few things gather dust I'd like to offer up I do not see the 35 rep as being a problem. I kind of like the idea that you need to be a "valuable" member of the forum before getting into some areas. I have been on enough forums where rules like "Need 10 post before doing X" are set and they just dont work.

I'm sorry, but in order to initiate sales on here, you have to meet the requirements on here. You are more than welcome to openly reply to Wanted threads if you have those particular items for sale, but that's about it until you hit 35 reps.

No exceptions.

It's for good reason, too. Just follow the rules....you'll get there soon enough.

In the rare cases that members scam and flee, we fully cooperate with local law enforcement to make sure they get what's coming to them.
