    My favorite part is going to be looking at a locked members' feedback section to see all the people willing to take their money, complain about their lack of contributions, then ban them.
    Discounted shipping, even on your forum buy/sell/trade threads. No membership fees.

    If you looked anywhere outside the marketplace you would find the reason. This was foretold almost a week ago.

    Perhaps you found yourself in this situation because your spelling is shitty.

    The criteria is simple to join this illustrious group....

    1) Poor... posts to feedback ratio...

    2) Majority of posts are in the market forum... (However, I do take into account WHERE your non-market posts are... and If i feel you deserve a chance... I'll let you be...)

    PS. Join date IS NOT going to help you...

    EDIT: However... I am going to start going thru the "Other Market Leech" List... and any worthwhile members... I'll unlock...

    If he promises to try and be more active outside the market forums...

    I will lift his account... TONIGHT...

    All he has to do is post in this thread to confirm that he agrees to participating more on the forums...

    Can we please not run off any more inactive people that sell cheap stuff? The market is already on life support after the last purge.

    I agree with wyo, I think inactive members should get a pass if they are selling stuff for cheap.

    I mean they could easily go to eBay and get way more over there but are instead giving good deals to the peeps here.

    Not sure whether the benefit to collateral damage ratio of large-scale purges is worth the kerfuffle. I'm not against it per se, just sayin'.

    The reality is, those that think this are usually those that have the ability to monitor the market place pretty regularly. It's not surprising nor is it a bad thing. Guys like you and MJ Mike do a good job of walking the fine line of buying/selling while building and funding your own collections with non-raepy prices which is to be applauded. The bummer is, legit non-chatty sellers like Tomcat, Alberto1225 (Yu-Ting) are few and far between. Speaking of, I miss Tomcat and his Engrish. Playing devil's advocate, I've clearly bought/sold here too especially in past years but I think the goal here from Rot's standpoint is to have members that contribute vs. those that buy/sell and bail.

    In the end, there isn't a perfect solution but I think these purges do more good than harm for the forum as a whole.

    Is this why I'm suddenly blocked from everything? I happened to comment on one of the market threads last night after not visiting in quite awhile. Check back today and no access.
    Bad luck to me I guess. I've never even been a seller, just a buyer.

    A buyer who is a leech hurts the market. Goods exit and will only re-enter via attempted flipping at inflated prices. Somone who mainly sells isnt going to screw the market up. Their will either move goods at fair prices or get piled on by the lads if way over fmv. Deal with the low post 'mp send' crowd first i say.

    Luck has nothing to do with it. You are only here to use the market, you are now locked out of the market. The war room gets cold in the winter, i hope you brought a blanket.

    Well I think it's a general consensus that people flipping items on the regular should be banned, IE n00bs snatching products here then shooting straight to eBAy. That's if it can be proven. I don't however mind a n00b who is a fan getting an item before me. I don't have God given rights as an older member. Maybe a join date(for example must be a member for a month to access selling forums) restriction or a post count restriction will help weed out flippers? But yea, sellers who primarily just sell stuff here, to offer it first to the community I don't think should be banned as they are contributing. As Wyo said they could go off and sell it more on an auction site often times. A lot of these people though may just not be social creatures, or maybe just lurkers. Not everyone out there likes to chat back and forth on forums aside from once in a while. Doesn't mean they are leaching though in my opinion.

    I get what you're saying though. It is quite the conundrum as there is no way to fully have your cake and eat it too. If I had to choose one state of affairs though I much prefer the market as it was a year ago, even with the chaos. Because it was a whole lot easier for members here to build up their collections in the family so to speak. Now it's like a bunch of starving zombies on a corpse when anything pops up. Haha.

    My decision...

    ALL I am seeking is for n00bs and oldtymers alike to see this thread... and understand what is considered "Contributing"...

    ALL the locked members... they just need to agree to participate more... and I will unlock their account... EASY PEASEY MOFOS!

    Sellers are like any other tools, they're either a benefit or a hazard. If they're a benefit, then it's not the purge's problem... me thinks. Stripling buyers on the other hand just want to exploit teh markets, giving nothing in return. That'd be legit purge material. A few posts now and then won't make it right. Maybe "buying privileges" could be redeemed in particular cases?

    Well that's not even true anyway, I haven't bought anything in over 2 years and am pretty much done collecting. My post previous to last night's was in the bad battery thread. Now I can't even browse because I decided to comment on someone's joke last night.

    This is a tight group around here...and most of us are fair sellers. By "fair" I mean we do not sell stuff at gouged Ebay pricing.We sell to each other because this is user to user sales. Some dickweed popping in to only buy is often just a flipper looking to buy low/sell high and take advantage to our internal karma.
