Re: CHANGES to the Buy/Sell/Trade Board
I agree, for example, I usually write scientific papers in English, but sometimes it's much more difficult for me to understand some long conversations on the forum!!That becomes a delicate matter for members that are not
comfortable in a non native language unless they were 100%
multi-lingual in grammar and it's meaning nuances...
While changing the parameters needed to post a new thread for sellers is probably a good thing, it is not a very good thing for someone like me who is just looking to buy a few thiings and read the posts so that I can learn a bit more and not come across as a complete moron.
It will likely be a year or longer before I will have 20 messages posted ! Look at my handle, ( using that term should date me ! ) moe ron, that should be enough to show I am not quite up to speed on laser technology and need time to read and learn. Even so that does not change the fact I would like to try to buy a few things and when there no threads about what I am looking to buy, since I have not posted enough messages to start a new thread means it will be even longer for me to post any mesages to get to the 20 needed to start a new thread.
I am not a spammer and will likely never have anything to sell, just an old man looking to enjoy a few simple pleasures like electronic gadgets, toys, lasers, computers and such.
I take it this post does not count towards the 20 I need either.....
I don't post very much, but even I think that's a bit ridiculous. You have 18 and I would assume most are laser related. You could reach 20 today easily. No way it would take an entire year.
