    Yea exactly mate. Forum isnt just about signing up and selling. That way you just get a bunch of people signing up trying to sell junk. At least with 250 posts people get a chance to know you and build a reputation for yourself. ;)

    eBay is for selling not EK9.org.

    Rules are there for a valid reason, and we will be keeping an eye on you to ensure you are not now randomly posting to bump your count up.

    We only want enthusiasts on our forum if your only here to sell then we suggest you go elsewhere.

    Um so why give the option to subscribe and point out that one of the bonuses is that u can post in for sale? And if this site isn't for selling, then why is there a for sale section which is full of people selling random stuff? I want to sell my car on here because its a perfect low mileage example of an origianl ek9 and i want it to go to someone who will understand it and look after it properly!! Not some rich kid who will thrash it and just use it to show off!! Thought this was a friendly place to come
    Thanks alot guys.

    Thanks James I just went to go and find that!

    Note

    "Access to create threads in the For Sale Forum. YOU MUST HAVE 250 POSTS."

    We are sorry that you don't like our rules, but no one forces you to join. It's an enthusiast forum not a free adds!

    Note the for sale forum rules

    http://www.ek9.org/forum/sale/18836-sale-section-rules.html

    In particular,

    It is a priveledge that is earned and requires a minimum of 250 posts regardless of status. ANY user found to be randomly posting which appears to be an attempt to reach this limit will have there post count reset and a 7 day ban issued.

    OK unlike most people these days who sour grapes. I will hold my hands up and admit i made a genuine mistake. I could of sworn it said it would allow for sale posts and for that and all this hassle i am sorry! I don't want to piss anyone off i just wanna get along and do my thing. Apologies to everyone! Although it would have only taken one person and not 10 others jumping on the band wagon. I guess everyone needs to feel accepted.

    If you have an excellent condition, low mileage EK9 that you're wanting to sell, you can advertise on a site like Pistonheads. I'm sure the right kind of buyer will see the ad.

    Well. Im not convinced i want to sell it yet. As i had a Jordan before for 2 years. Then got a Leon for the power. Missed the Jordan so got an ek9. Id love either a s2000, dc2 or dc5 :)

    It's not that everyone was having a go mate it's because there's so many spammers now that if the rules arnt there like a lot of the other forums there's a lot more risk of people just signing in and spamming,taking a members money and them left with nothing,your very welcome here mate!! What number Jordan did you have? I' have number 375, get a build going and show us your ek9 ;)
