    It's not that uncommon. It stops people just signing up to spam the crap out of the valid members.

    Less spam is a good thing in most people's world. sorry you don't feel the same way.

    buddy, it prevents spammers from coming in and ruining a good thing.

    If you just joined to sell something, you joined the wrong forum.

    Don't come in here as a new member and start bashing the rules, only adolescents and liberal arts students do that. Grow up.

    50 posts doesn't take that long. It's not that hard. What are you gonna be selling?

    Try having some conversations with people, contribute to informational threads, comment on some builds, get to know people...

    I would feel much more comfortable blindly buying something from you if i knew you were active and invested here anyway..

    I honestly don't really think that policy is the best, but it is not my forum, and hell, this is still my go-to site for all things tundra. The people who put together a site like this, and put in the effort to maintain it can run it however they wish. It is their truck, they get to drive, I ain't gonna be yelling from the back seat about how I think they're doing it wrong, I'm just happy they're willing to give me a lift...

    Just sayin'

    I love my new tundra and have enjoyed reading the posts so far, (I know only one day,) I have never seen such a rule, and I belong to many forums. I see it was implemented late last year, I admit spammers s%#k, I will try to take the good with the bad and get my 50 posts. I am not here just to sell something.

    Spammers come on here all the time. I've personally seen and reported 2 the last two days. 50 posts happens really quick and it does a lot to weed out the spammers.
    Honestly though, unless I really feel like I know someone, I'm not sending them money regardless of post counts.

    @kingstos, you'd do better to tell us about your truck, your plans for it, how you want better mileage and bigger tires (dunno, it's a common theme), than to whine. If I want to hear whining, I can get plenty from my children. I expect better from a fellow adult Tundra owner / driver, though my expectations in life are often met with disappointment. ;) Welcome if you want to stay.:thumbsup:

    When I joined back in Jan I knew I would be eventually selling a couple things and used that as an opportunity to start posting. I would frequent the New Member Intros and say hi, welcome, good lookin' truck. I would also find topics I was interested in and posted my thoughts and questions. I quickly got up to 50 sold what I need (I think that was post 51) and stuck around for the shit show that is occassionally Tundras.com

    The reason being (as mentioned above) is to prevent spammers from joining just to spam some item and take off. That, and someone signing up to sell an item with a few posts is more than likely not going to care to return, or even care if said product isn't as what it's (condition) is described as.

    We've had a few members screwed over on our other forum, TW. Let's just say we had his cell phone, work location, mothers information, and his address all in 24 hours. It turns into a nasty mob, real quick when someone screws over a member.

    Bottom line- the rule is in place for the protection of both the buyer and seller.

    As soon as you said that, Knowing you, I knew you were full of it!

    Even if I did offend you, you knowing me, I wouldn't have given two craps LOL

    Had the tables been turned, you'd have felt the same way either situation.....
