Ok guys ik I don't have many posts but I need some parts that I'm having no luck at local jy's finding so I was hoping maybe I could get ahold of an admin to try and access the for sale sign in on and maybe pm perms?

If you're looking for parts, as far as I know, you should be able to post in the WTB section. You can PM anyone. As for posting in the For Sale section, you must have 40 posts elsewhere before you can post up in FS.

You must also have 40 posts to read the FS section. Which is kind of silly, because if you send parts before payment, well that's your own fault. It's a bit tougher to scam when you are the buyer.

But honestly, you aren't going to find much. Since the forum crashed earlier this year, all posts after 2015 were lost. Not too many people posting stuff for sale anymore, and the chances of getting a hold of someone that hasn't posted in 3 years is probably not optimal. The last actual FS posting currently shown was originally posted Tue Oct 14, 2014 8:23 pm. Last post was Fri Feb 27, 2015 7:37 pm.

Hate to say it, but you would be better off trying to find parts on neons.org. While it isn't this forum, it's about as much help I can offer. Afterall, helping folks is the main purpose here.

Edit: Possibly you don't need 40 to view the FS section. IDK if this has changed with newer members. Using an old account that only has 10 posts, I can view the FS section.

Nope, can’t view the FS section at all as a n00b :(
Can’t use private messages either.

Also, something kinda funny...
The link Diablo posted in the ForSale Guidelines and Requirements thread leads to a page that says “Information
You are not authorised to read this forum.” So, that makes it a little difficult to read.

Diablo posted that new users need 20 posts to see the For Sale section.

Yes, I know I’ve posted here several times. I’m trying to reach the 20 number, but also trying to provide content at the same time. I’ve been using car forums for over 20 years now. Been an admin & moderator on more than a few, too.

Well, 20 posts isn’t enough. Somebody should update the info available to new members :(

Possibly things got changed or went into some sort of default mode when the forum was rebooted a couple years ago.
