    "Why can't I send a PM?"

    Trying to cut down on the scam PM problem, we have changed the entrance question and we made some changes that, unfortunately will affect new members.

    New members will now need to make at least 3 posts and be a member for 10 days before they can send a PM. They can receive PM's but not respond.

    Sorry for the inconvenience.

    Can we propose some entrance questions?

    Ideas include:

    - How many springs in an MQ2 autococker?

    - What was the first commercially available semi-auto

    - What is the best barrel material
    "but we all have electros and you guys only have pumps, this wont be fair"

      -and is there an "agreed" upon answer for those three questions? [not sure I could pass those 3 questions because all are debated]

    #3
    These questions seem rather pedestrian. How about “What is MCB’s preferred condiment?”

      That answer is easy, it is really just a question of what variation

    #4
    My vote was "what's the m stand for?"

    But we would never have another new member again.

      Thats a good one

      I guess you considered the springs in the LPR and HPR? What about belleville spring washer stack in some HPR?

        Why would the entrance question to MCB be about an electro? Nope.

      Funny thing, I had one of these scammers respond to my WTB ad, I was PM’ed with a number to contact, and he sent me my own pictures of an old marker I sold some years ago, around 2015, and just for shits n giggles I asked him to send pics with his UN and date and he photoshopped a paper in the same picture 😂.

      I was going to report him but I noticed he was banned already. It was a brand new UN too which is a red flag in and of itself. Check out the number too any usernames using that cell number should get red flagged / banned right away

        Also the way the date is written: the day and then the month, so obviously someone that’s international.

          The lack of shadow on the note, compared to the lighting and shadow on the photograph do not match. It looks completely out of place.

          Edit: But given that those are my pictures, that also helps😂

            Are scammers trying to buy or sell stuff? I just sold a marker here yesterday to a guy that joined in November, but had no posts. He seemed normal, paid promptly through Paypal, gave a legit address. Should I be concerned at all?

              I have sold several item to new or 0 post member and never got any issue
              As long as they pay with paypal, you add the tracking on paypal and keep some picture of the content and the package sent just in case. This is what I do

              The scammer attempt I seen was they was 0 post member wanted to sell me some stuff ask to contact them by email and pay with other method than paypal or ask for gifted payment

              All of them that I can think of were people with 0 posts trying to sell stuff. Most of the time stuff they didn't even own.

              I’ve also sold several things to new members. They find our ads, think we are super cool and then want to join us and buy our stuff! Who could blame them. Fraud side will be trying to get you to send money. If you’re selling should be fine!

            #12
            I get the reasons for the rule, but I really wish I registered before the rule was implemented. Found out the hard way when I tried to send a PM to make an offer on a Autococker pump that’s currently for sale.

            That being said, I’m happy to be on the forum. Been on the outside looking in for years

            Can new members who’ve made the minimum number of posts but have not been registered for the minimum amount of days receive a PM?

              Great question. I sent you a message to find out. Reply if you can that will tell is if it allows new members to reply to pm threads already created.

              Thank you. It's good to know. Who ever you are trying to buy something from post in the thread asking them to send you their email in a pm and they can if they like.

              If you think about it you only had to go that because I was some combination of too lazy and not smart enough to have done it already.

            Does it tell you the rules when you're signing up? If not is there a way to do so?

              I can try to make that happen but the odds aren't good that anyone would read it.
