Very clever of the mods. Requiring 50 posts but not letting the OP post replies until he has 50 posts Very clever indeed. Perhaps you should add no starting threads either.
Just kidding, I know you can post replies.

my first 50 posts were "Welcome to INGO"... but we can't do that anymore
If you do not like it, take your sorry attitude to one of those other fora. We have had this discussion repeatedly.Our Mods have decided to keep it this way for good reasons. Take a hike! We do not need or welcome trouble making, arrogant sycophants.

We have classifieds?
I have been a member for just over a year now and have yet to use the classifieds. I cruise through them now and then just to see what is out there and what the current prices are. To be sure if I was looking for anything firearm related I would start here first, but that is not why I joined this excellent forum.

First off let me say that as you can see I'm fairly new to INGO, and my post count is almost nonexistant so far. I really don't mind the 50 post rule. In my small amount of experience INGO is an extremely friendly place and I can't think of another place that I could get as much quality information. I'm just happy to be a part of this community. I believe the rules that are in place go a long way to keeping it that way.
Although I have become a site supporter, The small amount of $$ is worth every penny. The information is fabulous and the potential for meeting new people and making new friends is great.
So as usual for me I am now rambling about something totally unrelated to the original topic. Please forgive me.
Thanks for the great site

I'm not the site owner (but I did stay at a Holiday Inn Express last night). But if I remember seeing the explanation, it went something like this: INGO is first and foremost a community of contributors; the classified section is a great and worthwhile bonus. Stick around, contribute, and then you can take advantage of that part.
If you need to sell something quickly without contributing via quality posts, you can become a site supporter. If not, then there are quite a few other places to buy and sell. Or you can start your own forum, as well. I've heard from several new members that starting and maintaining a forum with 15k members is really easy.
Given the focus on building a fostering a community of gun owners, the classified rules make sense to me.

I joined for info, realized there was a classified section, coughed up that ridiculously high site supporter money so I could buy some goodies. Still here learnin and educatin folks.
