    Been a lurker on this forum for a long time. Now I've tried to sell something as I'm emigrating and I've come up against this 50 posts rules thing. Anyway to get around this? Just being upfront. I belong to a few forums and often don't create topics or respond, but do check them daily.

    Tbh.

    The best way is to engage on the forum and contribute to posts.

    Spamming short responses on market place adverts won't help you. You will be seen as a spammer/bot and posts will be deleted or you will get banned.

    That's exactly what I don't want to do - that would be a waste of time and energy. Just wondered if the rules of having to "engage" were a little too stringent for people like myself. Anyway, will just have to make another plan.

    Try Gumtree, OLX, etc. You do get your fair share of scammers but if you exercise some common sense, you should be able to sell your stuff easily. I have bought and sold a few things from Gumtree without issues.

    I've got it on Gumtree etc, but it makes more sense selling to actual gamers on this forum. And Facebook seems to now be an easier way to sell things. Thanks for the advice.

    I'm sure it's mentioned before but this is primarily a forum with a marketplace attached, not the other way around. The benefit of contributing to the myriad of conversations going on is access to the marketplace.

  7. Saying Thanks:
