Help, I've just registered, but can't post.......the answer

Recommended Posts

Like many, I am not able to start my own topic. I have completed my first post to introduce myself, but I still am only able to reply (not create a net new topic).

 

Any suggestions?

I am looking to post in Classifieds as I am interested in purchasing a used 5dm3 with nauticam housing.

 

Thanks!

 

You need to make 3 posts, Jesse. Then you should be able to start a new topic.

Hi, sorry in advance to add myself to the list of problem children here. I have introduced myself. I can start a new topic in many forums. I am not able to start a new topic in classifieds - does this require some additional hoop? I have been a member for ages and I primarily recently logged in to post gear I have for sale. Thanks in advance!

 

UPDATE: Please disregard. All working fine now.

Hi Adam, I’m new. How do I tick Notify Replies on my posts if I forgot when I posted? There doesn’t seem to be that option available any more when I Edit? If there is no way to activate the option if I forgot when I posted, how will I find replies please?

Hi Manta88

if you go into your Account>Profile you can see all the posts you have made and perhaps can pick up the thread you want from there. 
 

The Account tab will also let you Manage Followed Content  does that help?

It is not an issue, it is by design. Wetpixel is meant to be a community for people tot discuss underwater photography and videography, not ebay. So if you just want to flog stuff, the 3 post limit might discourage you from using Wetpixel only as a sales tool. To keep out spam bots, you must first react to an existing post (preferably the introduction thread). People that are willing to contribute are more than welcome.

It says that my profile is 0% complete and I can't post.  Yet I think I've introduced myself and uploaded some pictures.  Yet it's still 0% complete and I can't post --except for here.  Yes I've comfirmed my email & all that.

Hi Gallienus

If you are trying to post a For Sale or Want To Buy in the Classifieds you need to make 3 posts first; other than that, you should be able to make posts - and I see you have made two already.

Hope that helps.

Hi there, 

Iʻm also brand new here and had a hard time to take my first steps. Any chance to send an email to new users after their account is approved by admin with a link to a post for getting started/rules/guidlelines here? It also could be an automated message to their inbox at wetpixel.

A nice idea, Miles - and welcome to Wetpixel.  One for Adam (Hanlon, the owner) to consider.

As it happens, the system does send an automated email to members once they have completed their email verification...:)

However, as it is a system generated email, many email providers consider them spam...

I don't have an easy solution unfortunately-perhaps other members of the community may have potential solutions?

I like the idea of sending a welcome PM though...leave that with me

Thank you for the welcome :-) Seems to be a great community. Thank you for all the warnings about Scammers etc. Great tips! Excited so go through all the other forums.

I'd like to suggest an exception to the 3 posts rule in the classified section, that people be allowed to immediately post in "Give your feedback on buyers/sellers". I just bought something and would like to give feedback since I couldn't find any feedback on the seller. Now I have to spam the forums to do so!

Hi Casey

Welcome aboard and excellent that you had a good buy through WP. Happily our record for selling and buying has been pretty good.

Thanks for the thought. As I'm sure you have seen, the idea of the 3-post rule is to try and inhibit folks from just joining to sell gear. The policy has contributed towards, we think, sales being pretty successful and a happy event for both buyer and seller. Long may that remain, eh!

Coming up with an exception mechanism could be very tricky but you raise an interesting thought. We'll take a look.

Meanwhile, don't feel the need to spam but do chip-in towards some of the excellent posts that are made. I'm sure you have good things to contribute. 

And have a brilliant time in Indonesia. Some of the best diving in the world in that region - I reckon.
