Minimum of 25 posts before we can post in Garage Sale???
I've been a member of several car audio forums over the years but this is the first one I've seen where you have to have a minimum number of posts to buy or sell something. I find it a bit controlling. I didn't come here to buy or sell, I just happened to stumble upon this forum in a Google search of my PA-D10001 mono amp. I didn't even know Polk had a forum! So just finding this forum today, I scrolled through it and responded to 3 posts, hoping to share a little of what I've learned in the 45 years I've been around car audio. I'm 62 years old, so yes, I was 17 when I installed my first car stereo, and I've never looked back. Lately I've tried to stimulate the economy by investing much of those first 3 stimulus checks in car audio. I've been on a never-ending (until now) quest to go one step better in equipment. This year was the first time I've spend over $200 on a car amp, over $50 on tweeters, over $150 on a head unit, over $100 on full-range speakers, and so on. Because I can afford it lately, working 7 days a week most of the time, plus being on social security, then send a few bonus stimulus checks at me and yes, I'll invest in things I could never afford. Well, many people know that sometimes you buy something that you're just not 100% happy with, or it's not what you expected, or you find it doesn't fit where you were going to install it. Of course, it's all brand new stuff, so you hate to toss it, so naturally you sell it. Sure, you take a loss, but you at least try to get some of your money back. I've sold so much different brand new, unopened, unused car audio stuff in the last few months that I've lost count. So, when I found this forum, then happened to see there was a thread for buying, selling and trading, I was excited. I have a few pieces I'm not going to use, and they're just sitting on a shelf in unopened boxes. But because of someone believing it makes a big difference how many posts you have made in a forum before you can sell something, it might be a long while before I post here! This stuff will be gone before I post 25 posts. I have a life, a job, and a car stereo to upgrade. I don't have time to sit online and post comments all day long. Craigslist and Facebook Marketplace work just fine, and you don't have to have a minimum amount of sales before you can use their services. Whoever came up with this crazy idea about a minimum amount of posts might want to rethink their reasoning. It just makes no sense. I've been a member of The12Volt forum for 11 years and only have 76 posts/comments. So I can only imagine how long it will take to reach 25 posts in THIS forum! Just my opinion, which really doesn't count since this is only my 4th post.
