For Trade and Private Sales. Traders must register with Fish & Fly at firstname.lastname@example.org before listing goods here. Private members need 100 posts before selling and can post 2 per classified section per month only.
Admin did change parameters to stop new comers just posting minor responses to threads to boost their post count. I'm not sure what now counts as a post!!!

As Noel posted. Another change that happened to classifieds, can only converse via PM to classifieds. This was done to stop people bumping a sale to the top of thread list all the time as they were choking things up.
