Buy/Sell PTS
« on: January 13, 2014, 06:14:31 PM »

I just registered this account to initiate a trade.
However the Sell PTS/Buy PTS boards are restricted for me (I can access them without logging in).
I couldnt find explanation about this.
What should I do in order to read/post in Buy PTS subforum?

PS: if anyone is interested in selling pts for ~100 ltc pm me offers.

buy/sell PTS boards are restricted to Newbie accounts to avoid spams. You need 20 posts to get the access.

And how is the sanity of my posts controlled ?
Cant I just post useless information all over the forum this way?
Isnt this encouraging of "not so useful" posts just for the sake of trading?

People will see your posts and your nick and will start recognizing you as a member of the community.

Yes, but you will not likely find people who want to trade with you.

Isnt this encouraging of "not so useful" posts just for the sake of trading?
Maybe, but again at least you will be recognized.

And what If I go to off-topic section to post 20 jokes in a separate well named thread ?
You keep asking the same questions. Some people are actually doing stuff like that to obtain a higher forum rank.

You have to understand that this is a precaution we introduced recently to fight of the huge amount high volume scamming attempts. People were using nicks that looked similar to moderator nicknames and tried to scam Protoshares worth tenthousends of dollars.

These guys are recognized earlier if they have to post 20 messages on the forums before they can access the trading zone.

I hope this clears up stuff. If you dont want to get involved with this forum community anyways, you can still trade at the known exchanges. The volumes are high and the fees are low.

I like the idea behind Keyhotee and some of the DAC(s). Thanks for the efforts to everyone involved. I hope I^3 will reach at least some of the objectives it has. I'd be happy to help if I have opportunity and ability.

However I'd like to express my doubts that 20 posts will stop scammers (perhaps this will filter only the more devious part of them).
The main reason scammers are successful is that there are people who fail to recognize a scam and/or use insecure ways to trade. (I see some efforts in the direction of creating better/safer exchanges.)

My opinion is that hiding these subforums creates some frustration for new users (or these who only watch the forum like me) and the scam prevention may not be as effective as desired.
Anyway this is just my opinion and it may not be close to the real situation.

Thanks for clearing this up!

And a perfect example of an attempted scam....
Just in a thread where we discuss this...
Perhaps they are not that devious after all just people are stupid.
I'll get my 20 posts soon, I'll just report both accounts under different threads...
