    Id suggest searching for the alternative thread to this - the one which names those members whove had their posts set back to zero...

    Be wary young traveller; It may come to be 32 posts that you will never get back, now that you have entered the Kingdom of the posting dead.

    You must pray that the Great Watchmaker, Master of The Ban Hammer is not awake and hungry for fresh accounts to gather in this very day.... LOL

    With someone posting 3 times in this thread, guess what happens next?

    Have to say it's a bit of a pain having to have 50 posts to look at the sale section. I found this forum while searching for a new watch, bought one from watches of wales but had I been able to access the classifieds I would have possibly bought there.

    - - - Updated - - -

    But sure may as well use this section to build a few posts to try to get to 50 in for the next purchase.

    How many posts are you going to squirrel away here?

    Welcome to the Forum. At least you've joined for all the right reasons.

    Don't let the door hit you on the way out.

    Why would I leave when I've only just joined?

    Did you read the bit that says "And been a member for 60 days?" You won't get to Sales Corner before 30 October, regardless of your post count.

    Unless, of course, you send "Swanborne" a PM, explaining why you should have preferential access.

    Saw that, I'm in no particular rush as I've just made a purchase but will look forward to getting a look end of October.

    There is also the point that I'm a newbie to the watch game, always had a passing interest but on many threads I feel I wouldn't have the knowledge to contribute. I have been enjoying reading tho. I hope long term the forum provides an interesting platform to chat/learn rather than a place to be ushered straight back out of.

    Quality post. I find that those who spend more time reading than typing have more to contribute than the turbo-posters.

    Don't mind the forum busybodies. ;)

    I'm sure it will. There are many knowledgeable people here, and it's a fascinating place.

    But beware. Anybody who makes their desire to get to Sales Corner public and rattles off multiple posts in a short space of time is in danger of their post count resetting to zero when they hit 49. Software glitch, I believe.

    Enjoy your stay.

    Well, you have 59 days before 50 posts will do anything for you. If at all of course.
