You have been a member for three years, but you have not posted until today. You should be able to view our Sale/Trade forum once you have made the required number of posts.

Did you participate on our forums under another user name, or are you just recently become interested in participating on?

If you have any further problems, PM me, and I will be glad to help you.

Hello, I believe I have more than the required number of posts and have been a member since 200'5. I noticed that I dont have access to the For Sale forum as the other users stated.

I would like to request access.

Thank you.

I just checked your profile, and it shows that you should be able to view FS/T. If this is the first time you've logged on since we made the change, it would have automatically updated your profile.

Try logging off and logging on, again. If that doesn't do it, PM me, and I'll check further.

If you haven't logged in since the rules were implemented to restrict new members you may have to wait for the server to update your status. It doesn't happen instantly but it should be less than an hour.

LMK if you have any problems.

I am an old, old, head has to be 97 or earlier when I first started posting here.

I took a long hiatus, but used to participate here regularly (including having sold and bought 100's of things on the fs/ft forum).

Could I please regain access to it?

I can't access FS/FT either. It seems you don't have my email account linked to my old username (y0shi, I'm registered with over a hundred trades on heatware iirc), so I cannot recover my old account. Could you waive the 25 post requirement in light of this? I would not like to make weak posts just to meet the requirement.

EDIT: I'm registered on Hardocp as y0shi and I've been around the community for over 10 years.

You were banned from our forums for bad trading in 2004. We have no reason to allow you to return, now.

Had to dig to find this. So, it will happen automatically after 25 posts, but takes about an hour to do? I'm trying to see an iPhone post.

From the AnandTech forum Guidelines

"15) To access our FS/T forum, members must have a minimum post count of 25 along with being a registered member for 7 days"

From Please use the SEARCH function before making a thread in this forum

"Why can't I see the For Sale/For Trade Forum?

There is a small requirement for entry into our FS/T forum.

Specifically, there is a 25 post minimum and a 7 day membership requirement to be able to have access to that forum.

This requirement is also listed in the guidelines under #15, which can be found in the PFI sub forum."

You joined on Oct 10 per your profile.

You have two requirements to be met; you have only met one.

I'm also having trouble accessing the For Sale/Trade forum. I was on here a couple years back but couldn't remember my info so I had to sign back up again. I waited a couple hours but I still am not able to access that forum. I would also like access! Thank you!

Please make a thread in Moderator Discussions with the information about your previous account so we can see about restoring it and your FS/FT access.
