Bingo. Good answers by puppy-mud, jason, and coin-chaser. There is the ebay commendable function of "ratings". Right ? That is, successfull feedback, length of time involved, # of safe-sales, etc..... And to develop such a rating, you have to "keep your nose clean". Then why wouldn't an md'ing forum be any different ? If you chime in, offer answers/inputs, offer accolades to show & tells, share your own show & tell, etc..., then presto: It would be very hard for a casual user to say you just "got invented out of nowhere".

Whenever I entertain the idea of buying from someone online via an md'ing forum, if I see that they show up for casual chit-chat (show tell, tech discussions, etc...) YOU CAN BET that I assume they're legit. Vs someone who just showed up , and this is their first post.

You are more-than-welcome to join in and pick conversations to be involved in. Pick a bee-in-your-bonnet, and post away, haha

Well, youve gotten a lot of great responses to your one word question. That should give you an idea of how fast you can have 200 posts in no time.
Good luck!

Good reply !!!!

The OP needs to understand that rule can help protect them too.

Every so often this topic comes up, maybe they should include the reason why 200 posts are required in the rules that it is for everyone's protection, including theirs.

Reminded me of a past thread -

"Stuff to sell but not enough posts"

Personally, I think it should be higher; like 300 to 500. Be a forum member first. Then, if you "keep your nose clean" that long, you earn a nice, shiny right-to-sell-stuff badge.
After 10,000 posts, you get a nice shiny right-to-screw-with-people's-heads badge. After 18,000 posts, you can just sum up an entire hot thread with one word...like "yup".
