We have implimented a postcount limit. From now on guests are unable to see the BSE at all, and junior members have to EARN the right to use it by giving input to the community.
Sadly this does affect a number of decent "background members", but it is a measure to protect the more active community members (the "givers")
To those genuine members who are affected:
The needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few. Sorry, but thats just the way it is.
To those who want to know what the limit is:
I'm not going to tell you, ever. So dont ask. I ask those who do figure it out to keep it to themselves.
To those who just dont "get it":
If you want to whinge about it, you can always say goodbye to the BSE and we'll just get rid of that luxury altogether. When you pay money to use these forums is when you get the right to whinge.
There are also some general BSE rules posted in the OCNZ Rules thread
Do not ask for access to the BSE, it will be automatically granted to you when you earn it.
Do not try to sell your gear in other parts of the OCNZ forum, especially the Open Topic.
Do not whinge about not being able to get into the BSE, you want to use it? Earn it.
Until you earn it, take your stuff to Trademe
