Arrow OMG! n00bs in the BST!

I'm sure those of you who frequent the Buy,Sell, Trade forum have noticed some new guys that snuck in there. VBulletin has a bit of a hole in the permissions, allowing supporting members (i.e. those that pay for gallery space) access to the BST.

Since the only alternatives are to kick out the supporting members who already have the required posts/join date, or get rid of the option to take in some money for the site, this hole will continue until we figure out how to patch it.

So, if you see a newbie in the BST, you'll have to use some common sense as to whether you think you can trust him or not. Some guy who joined yesterday selling NIB Bruisers from somewhere in China or Pakistan is probably not the real deal. Just thought I'd throw that out there.

As always, trading on the internet is done at your own risk.

Not all n00bs are scammers, and not all scammers are n00bs. Use your head when scouting for deals. If it looks too good to be true, it probably is.

My offer to sell the Brooklyn Bridge for $500 is still open, if anyone's interested. Thing's cherry, hardly been used.

so when it says ''bruiser for sale, but im not wasting my time to see if the trans has been rebuilt, but i was told it was, so its your problem" (almost what it really says) we should avoid it right?

hope its fixed soon because i smell a scam coming.

As a sure fire fix for the time being, the option for a paid subscription to the Gallery is no more. Of course anyone that's already paid for one will keep it, there will be no more until we can come up with a way to solve the issue.

For the record, there was only 23 members with a paid Gallery, some of which have been around since waaay before the new B/S/T rules were put into place. I don't have an exact number, but it's not a lot of people that snuck in this way. That said, the Gallery wasn't really a big hit anyway. There are a lot of free photo hosts out there for anyone that doesn't want to stick with the limitations and just upload and attach to your posts for free anway!
