To add to that:
There are new members such as myself that were referred from other forums (i.e. my350z.com) and are interested in the Classifieds. In my particular instance, I wanted to look at prefab'd carputers for sale to pop in my Z instead of going through the dog n' pony show of creating one myself.
While I understand there are certain criteria for accessing the Classifieds, they are not implicitly spelled out in the 'Why can't I view the Classifieds' thread.
As such, I shot the Mod a quick PM to clarify the contingencies:
I'm an active member of my350z.com, AZ350Z.com and 350ZMotoring.com and looking to create my own carputer.
I had registered on the site for DIY information and the opportunity to look at classifieds for a pre-built carPC setup, however, my account is restricted due to recent registration.
Does your site/forum allow the release of accounts for those interested in purchasing from the 'classifieds'? If not, can you identify the minimum criteria available to receive the release? At this point, I don't know that I'm able to contribute anything significant to community discussion on points relative to 'carputers'.
Any information you are able to provide is appreciated - thank you!
In reply, I receive only a link to the 'Why can't I view the classifieds' thread.
Genius! I read the thread, that's why I asked for clarification...
Wha-wha, I guess? In any case, good luck with the revamped Classifieds; hope the Mods rethink access criterion or demonstrate a little more helpfulness in the future on similar topics.
