Hmmm Classified Enabled - CLOSED

Not that I really care since I'm highly unlikely to buy anything posted on this forum (due to import and duty and shipping costs), but I thought maybe some AO official would like to explain what this new feature is and how it works.

Re: Classified Enabled

Well, we are trialling the intergration of our classifieds system in readyness for some very kind AO members to trial, we have done this test late at night so we dont bother to many people.

The "classifieds enabled" has now gone, however "Classifieds Disabled" will show on a member that has less than 10 posts and/or has been registered for less than 48 hours. The reason we do this, is to make it really hard for people that want to mess around with hoax auction ratings etc...

Members that wish to play around in classifieds will have a task on there hands, we designed it that way, it cannot stop people, but it will certainly put them out quite a bit, as they would have to:

Create another email address at yahoo or something as every Forum account requires a unique email address.
Register to the forum again
Validate the email address/account
Post minimum of 10 times and /
And wait 2 days...

And after that you have to get past the "Duplicate Login" bot! He will post a thread to the private admin lounge stating who has and who is using multiple accounts.

Hope this explains... Did you fall asleep there

Re: Classified Enabled

That clears up a few things. I saw the "Classified Enabled" note under a few newbies' profiles, and it got me wondering.

Re: Classified Enabled

Is it still in the format of the current classified section or is it a new seperate part of the site ?

Much much better, its bolted onto the forum and styled like the forum to save on learning another bit of software.
