Ratio of "FOR SALE!!!!" to Informative Posts

Postby RichFrye » Wed Apr 11, 2012 5:03 pm

Hey Phil,
since this is your place , have you ever pondered putting into effect a system that would not allow someone without 'x' amount of informative /hobby posts to FOR SALE!!!!!! SUPER-DUPER ONE DAY ONLY!!!!! SUNDAY SUNDAY SUNDAY HALF OFF ratio to be able to simply use your site as free ad space?

Just curious, being this is a hobby site and not a money making venture for you personally.

Thanks,
Rich
Darts with parasites are analogous to mixed tanks, there are no known benefits to the frogs with either.

I have considered something like that. I always though that needing 25 posts until you can post an advertisement was a little silly.

Other differences here on DD are:

1. We don't require stated prices.

2. Ads are not pre-moderated. They go up right away.

Yeah, 100% FOR SALE! ads are a bit silly (and abusive to this hobby site) also, I personally think.

hmm..ok...I think I see who you are leveling the shotgun at now.

Please put the shotgun down and pick the bear rifle back up. Re-aim at only your biggest issue(s) for now.

I do not have the energy to attend to multiple shotgun blasts hitting everything, right now.
