As you will be aware, P8ntballer has one of the largest, most active and safest paintball equipment classifieds on the web. In part, this is due to the rules of the site, along with the excelent work of the moderating team, but also the due dilligence that you guys, the members, also take.

In order to further protect all parties, as of this post an update has been rolled out to P8ntballer. Effective immediately, in order to Post a New thread in the Classifieds, Post a Reply to a thread in the Classifieds, Start a Private Conversation or Post on someones Profile Page, a user must make 10 20 posts outside of the classifieds section.

The aim is simple, someone who wishes to re-register to circumvent a ban, or simply just to rip someone off via trades done in Private Conversation will no longer be able to take these actions without having to spent time posting elsewhere on the site, hopefully in which, they will be picked up.

It also means if you see a new member with 20 posts, check his history to see those 20 posts are spam or similar and he is wanting to buy or sell something, it is probably not a good idea as he has simply made those posts in a hurry.

We would also like to remind users, new or old, to take a read of the classifieds rules in order to stay safe when trading online: http://p8ntballer-forums.com/threads/read-this-classified-rules.21087/

Best Regards

The P8ntballer Team

So basically you have to have posted 10 times elsewhere to use the classified section ?

Yup. We are starting with 10, however it may go up in the future.

Posts which are spam, or clearly just made to get access to the classifieds will obviously be removed, and may result in the classified access been removed from such accounts regardless.

Good idea on the 10 post's, is there any other way of showing that your legit from another forum member, it would make it difficult for new paintballing players to buy something urgently if they only come on every once in a while. i only started on the site thursday night and made 3 successful purchases from BDswarveP . maybe if people could be on a voting system for to show legit as well from paintballers on here they know


cheers and keep up the good work

As an addendum to Jon's post I'd like to add, if any of you guys have suspiscions re any member, then plese share them with us mods; in doing so, it helps protect other innocent members from being ripped off - the sooner we have some idea what's going on, the sooner we can prevent others from being ripped off .. please get in touch, it's not snitching/grassing , it's flushing the p8ntbller.com toilet ..

We will have a "fast track" or "verified" service available in the future, basically you throw a couple of quid at us via Paypal, so we have your contact details and address on record, and will then let you have the access as normal.
