    Just signed up to see the Classifieds, and join in some discussions. But apparently i still can't access it. It gives me a generic "no permission" page.

    Now this is probably because i don't have any posts yet, but it might be a good idea to give a bit more warning to new users.

    With this post done, i'm gonna see if i can find a DWW-750FM

    /edit: still not working... damn.

    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:

    Good morning:

    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.

    The "mod" you asked is the "admin" that wrote the thread.

    Why would I outline the steps people need to take to gain access when the steps in place are there for a reason?

    To prevent trollers from using our users and the clasifieds to make a quick buck.

    Outline it and I might as well not have the protection built in.

    If you actually contribute to this forum (like at leat introduce yourself), you'll find that it's not all that hard...

    Disappointed

    I have been reading these forums for a while, trying to figure out exactly how I was going to start my install. We went underway for 8 months, and now that I am back I decided to start. I looked on eBay, but I was not very interested in the offerings. This is really the place I would go for buying some of the components (I am going non-touchscreen for a variety of reasons), and I was disappointed when I found the classifieds locked down. Aside from giving my to people with "sweet" installs, I have had nothing to contribute worth wasting people's time to read.

    Anyway I'm Ben, I own a 2000 VW GTI VR6, love it, and don't have a CarPC yet but I am gathering parts as we speak.
