I have been a member for over 5 years but am not allowed to sell items?! - Page 2  

post #11 of 43
Think of it this way.

If you've been around and helped people with problems, then you are far more likely to be a good seller, who is actually going to show the same courtesy in trying to sell parts as described to buyers, as well as being willing to help with issues that come up in the transaction (and things DO sometimes go wrong), because you've demonstrated your ability to help others before selling hardware. This gives some protection for the buyer, as he's the one paying first (I don't know the FS/FT rules here, but I assume that's it).

Who would you trust more if you were a buyer yourself?
Someone who has contributed greatly on the forums, or some random guy who has barely ever posted?

Be honest.

I like this system just fine. You say you can sell elsewhere, so sell elsewhere. There are legitimate strategies to increasing your rep. But 41 posts ain't gonna do it.

Rep tends to come when we least expect it
I had about 250 before I took my staff badge and it was always a surprise to me when I received rep.

Put in some time, make some helpful posts and have fun within the TOS and it will come.
35 isnt that much and it will happen faster than you think. smile.gif

This is definitely true and I can attest to this. I have been here also for ~5 years but I sat at +3 Rep for about 4 of those years. Just this last year is when I really joined the community and visit now on a daily basis and actually look for threads that I can help in. The Rep does come, and it definitely comes faster than you would think.

Rep is a hard thing . I go above and beyond to help people alot . and some may forget , or some just dont care to leave rep . but being a member for long time , it is frustrating not being able to sell .I feel your pain man .mad.gif

Think about it from Overclock.net's perspective.

 

The only thing that proves someone isn't just here to use the marketplace is Rep because you only get Rep when someone chooses to give it to you, and generally most people give Rep to someone if they think their post is very helpful to either them or the community, or both. A high Rep count shows dedication to the community. It proves that the person isn't just here to use Overclock.net to their advantage in some way, such as using the marketplace. Earning 35 or more Rep is what they think is fair enough proof that you're probably not going to just use the marketplace and then leave.

 

So, it doesn't matter if your account is 5 years or 10 years old. It doesn't matter if you have thousands and thousands and thousands of posts either.

 

Think about it like this: if you're a waiter or a waitress and you've been working at the same restaurant for 5 years but you haven't received an tips, then what does that say about your reasons for being a waiter or waitress? If your reasons for being a waiter or waitress were because you genuinely enjoy serving people, then you're naturally going to rake in the tips and it proves that you're dedicated. It's the same thing here on OCN with Reps. If you are helping people because you genuinely enjoy helping people, then you will naturally rake in the Reps.

It's a computer!

And this is why this guy has over 5000 reps = if he was a waiter = easy Bugatti...


Every forum has different requirements so I guess this forum's community value that you contribute and be helpful to others. It's not fool proof because in another forum I believe there was a guy who was very active - but was soon discovered selling "rented PC parts" to the community including taking payments from multiple customers for just one part...

It's not hard to get Rep if you're willing to help people with what you can. My account isn't very old at all, and I've been Rep'd simply by being active and contributing where I'm able. It shows some investiture in the community, which I think is a good thing in a marketplace scenario.

I agree with your statement , but on the other hand , people are solely here for there own benefit, PERIOD .Weather it be to pas time because they like to help others with computer problems , just as an social activity , or , because you your self are having issues that you can come here and find answers . This site just like many other forums are here for you to gain .
Someone like me , I have over 50 heat , and a eBay score over 400 , I Think I should be able to show this and be able to sell off of that solely . That alone shows I am here to help and sell on a good level .
When you say people are here purely to profit , if they only want to sell and carry on . I disagree with that . I think that should be ok as well. I look at the market as another source to gain from . 2nd had stuff is helpful all on its own . Sometimes much more than info needed , or opinions on a build and so forth . People being able to afford things that would normally make you bankrupt is awesome . and a lot more people would sell if they didnt have to scower the forms for years trying to get rep out of people who wont even teach there own kids to wipe correctly . To simply be able to put some tings up for sale is such a huge task . . I don't see why it is a big deal if one only wants to use the market and move on, It still provides great things to the community , just in different regards . I even think some rep , and x amount of posts is a good idea . but 35 rep is kinda crazy and holding back the community quite a bit in my eyes . Either way , I unfortunately don't make the rules . so the voyage to be able to sell parts continues .
