I am changing the "20 rep or 3 months" rule so that it applies to 35 rep as with the OCN marketplace, along with removing the 3 months limit. I hate to ruin someone's day in advance if this is going to happen to inconvenience anyone, but it is important that the rules of the Swap Meet comply to the rules of the OCN marketplace, since this is basically an extension of the OCN marketplace on a no-cash-basis. it should be fair that similar rules apply for the fair use of all the members on here. Similarly, use of the OCN marketplace has always
been contingent on your participation on this site. On the OCN marketplace, this rule has been frequently debated and will not change as it is here for your protection.
If anyone wants to make a case about it (i.e. too much rep?), go ahead. However, the rule must be enforced by the amount of rep you have.
My suggestion to anyone who might be affected by this rule, is to go and actually participate on OCN. John', aside from the fact that none
of your items have been claimed as of yet, a lot of your 179 posts on OCN were on the Swap Meet and not in the rest of the forums. I suggest that you go find a section of the forums that you feel most comfortable contributing in. I used to be one of the most active and reputable on the AMD forums (and still am, now I moderate that section!) because I happened to know a lot about AMD platforms, and learned more through increasing my activity there. Personally when I was new to this site I made the rush to get to 35 rep by strategically posting in several different forums where rep is easy to get (hint: appraisals is an easy place to get rep), and despite not having anything to sell, got there in less than a month
remember, a rule in the TOS states that you cannot ask for rep on this site; you can only earn it.Edited by xd_1771 - 8/27/11 at 1:04pm
