Hey Mike sorry if you got your feathers ruffled but read your original post again. You stated, "I have something to sell that I'm not going to sell on here of course" so which one is it sell or not sell?
Then you said. "I'm just trying to figure how I'm going to get to the 25 post so I can list it." Now that sounds like I want to sell this thing and will do what it takes. Not I'm looking to participate and help others and maybe learn something in the process.
Your last statement saying "The other forum didn't have that rule" again sounds like you have a problem with the 25 post rule.
As for the blank spaces and maybe not wording things right. A simple follow up thread saying Hey guys sorry I fell a sleep when making that first post and really screwed that up would have been a good response. Along with a corrected version of your intro of course.
In your last post you make reference that your trying to sell something to save us money. Don't get me wrong that would be a nice thing for someone. However your first reason would be to get rid of it because it's taking up space and/or you want to make some money instead of giving it away.
It also was made clear that we either made you mad or made you feel unwelcome. But ironically My first word in my post to you was Welcome.
My post was in response to yours and I tried to explain why the 25 post rule was there and how you could obtain your goal since you seamed confused about that. I also made a comment about all your blank spaces. however lets face it, that was odd. Since I don't know you from Adam, I'm not there to know you were sleeping and you seamed to have a problem with the 25 post rule, is there any doubt you may get a post questioning your motives.
Hell even if your main goal was to come on here and sell something then fine. Just get the 25 post and in the process you may decide that you like the forum and want to stay.
