Hi,
I've been able to view classifieds for months. Actually bought a MK 3.1 that someone had started to assemble through the classifieds. I have also bought many other parts for my car. Now it's private? Do we really want to clutter the forum with post1, post 2....ect. just to view classifieds? I understand the limits for posting. thanks for any help. Marlin

Thanks for the reply. Just seemed funny to me for this to change so much since I've become addicted and dependent on the site. Guess I'm up to two now. :)

to 2FAST4U will work up to 20, but like to hide my ignorance. Usually search first before asking questions, which on this site has most all answers. If you search the right question. This not being able to view classifieds just started happening yesterday after being helpful for a year. Oh well. Thanks for the reply. 3

I understand the issues, but I will be doing a whole lot more questioning then contributing for quite a while. Sooner or later as my knowledge increases hopefully I too will be able to contribute. Thanks for helping with my count build.

Marlin, sorry to say, but this site has changed and I'm not a fan. I'm migrating to "the other site".

shame

I dunno - I thought the purpose of classified ads is to sell the stuff listed in them, and that the more eyeballs looking at them the better. It seems like lurkers to your classifieds that happen to have the means to complete a transaction will now be blocked from this marketplace - I count myself in this group.

If you are concerned about scammers then block their ability to post. Not sure what blocking anyone from reading posts accomplishes.

I don't want to come off as complaining - I really I have no skin in the game here at all and reading your forums has been a real education so far - some of the know-how on display here is amazing. Hopefully I will eventually get to the point that I will be able to make intelligent contributions to the threads in the future. But I guess I will have to take my car buying interests elsewhere in the meantime.
