Guys,

I am getting a lot of reports and private messages about low post count people posting in the PX.

In the past, there were multiple ways to reach Full Membership, you could make a 100 posts, you could be a member for 45 days, you could buy a new member for sale section membership.

Today with the new system you have two methods, you can make a 100 posts, or you can pay to buy a full membership.

What this means is, you cannot only use a person's post count to determine their membership status. Their individual post count is just one method.

IF the person has made a post in the for sale section, they are allowed to post in the for sale section. The system will block anyone not allowed. It's pretty automatic.

You have to do your homework to determine the fidelity of the buyer or seller. This is not a paid service, we are getting hit up far too often by people wanting US to vet their sale, or handling reports because guys see a low post and report the thread. I appreciate you looking out, but look out for you, and don't rely on us to do your homework for you.

I understand the PX is super popular, especially since the FB groups are blocked from sales. The popularity of the site, in general, makes it a target for scammers. If everyone buying and selling are contacting the moderators we would be doing nothing else.

The PX is a value-added option for our members. it's not a paid service we are providing you. Those who do pay to post are buying Full Membership and not a sales contract. We do not get involved with your individual sales. If you can't handle the effort, don't do it. We are not your supervisors. If two parties have a conflict our options are very limited. This goes with scammers and bad deals too. All the site can do is ban and block the offending party or parties. We are not the police, we are not guaranteeing your sale or purchase, we just provide the pixels, you can post a picture of your dog in the hot girlfriend thread, or you can sell your unused widget.

Handle your business or I will put tighter restrictions on the whole thing.

Is there a way to get a MOD or something in the PX To handle disputes and bans? And some more iron clad rules so we can get weltchers and sammers banned quickly.

Frank has mentioned many times that the PX is a luxury for us, and that if we cannot police ourselves, that luxury will become a memory (I'm paraphrasing).

If somebody welches, post it in feedback. If they're a scammer, post it in feedback. The membership here should learn to investigate anyone who hasn't been here awhile, and should pay with a means that offers some protection to the buyer. Frank bans those whom he sees fit, when he gets to it. Asking for him to devote even MORE of his time to this task is asking for the PX to be done away with.

If Frank wishes to assign mods, he will. Otherwise, caveat emptor.

Shit Id volunteer to mod for it. I get where he is coming from. But Ive noticed people weltch and shit here and act like it is not big deal. (currently the welcher I'm dealing with). I have sent a lot of people over to this site because of the content and PX. And after this i kinda wish i wouldn't have.
