That does not count as five posts! Just one. What help do you need?

This is a community based forum and, in an endeavour to stop commercial users taking advantage, members are asked to contribute at least 5 posts before being able to advertise. As you posted 5 posts into the same thread they were concatenated in to one, again to prevent spam.

Hope that helps.

You need to make another three! Look just below your name, to the left of this message, there is a clue there!

Hi glenmick.

If you 'Reply to Topic' when you were the last person to post on said topic then whatever you type will just be added to your last post .... and not be counted as a separate post.

Basically, you have to reply to someone else's post ..... such as this one of mine.

Or alternatively, post on another thread(s). Eg. Reply here then reply on any other thread and that's five posts. Bob's your uncle.

---------- Post added 12-02-2017 at 08:15 ----------

If you reply to your own post, as I have just done, this happens.

Hi glenmick,

You may be better off taking advice from a more experienced member on that query.

As far as I know, as long as the sale item is legal and is posted in the correct section then, the world's your oyster.

Reply now and you have got your five posts.

There are things you cannot sell on the forum. A list (not exaustive) can be found under the forum FAQ.

I thought you had to be a member at least a week and at least five post, to stop the five post in five minutes trick.
