LOL so I finally got to over 50 posts, and have a few days to go to hit 60 days, but where is the tradingpost - does it hide until you've reached the mark?
What does category does it fall under?
Thanks
Alison

8 might be enough?
Or maybe 9 will be?

Look in your profile to find the date you registered. You must be registered 60 days to have TP access once you have at least 50 posts. The switch will happen at some time after your 50th or 51st post. I'm not sure when.

The forum will be seen from the forum homepage down at the bottom of the list in the Natural Family Living category. Just beneath Talk Amongst Ourselves.

Yep, me too...well, actually, I USED to be able to see TP, but then because I hadn't posted at least 50 times (working on that TODAY, lol) the privilege was taken away. I was bummed. I love to buy, more than I like to talk!

I was so excited today when I finally passed 50 - but... alas..... no trading post to be found. boo. Been poking around MDC since June, so that shouldn't be the problem... maybe I will try logging in and logging out...

Thanks for this thread - it was nice to know I wasn't the only one trying to find it!

I was so excited to read about this Trading Post, then sooooooo frustrated not to find it. Now I finally figured out about this 50/60 rule. I cannot tell you how disappointed and annoyed I am. I feel terrible being annoyed at anything related to Mothering (most fabulous magazine and web community in the universe), and I can understand putting some qualifications. But FIFTY posts? That just seems crazy. That doesn't prove I'm a serious buyer/seller, it just proves I'm obsessed. OK, I'm being facetious, no offense to all you who posted 263 times or more.

What was this problem that required this new rule? If it was a problem with sellers lacking integrity, isn't there a way to make it a requirement of sellers, but not buyers?

Lisa, The Trading post was set up as a service to active members within the community. We know there is no magical number of posts that make you active but we have to draw the line somewhere.

Here is a quote from the Rules and Guidelines for the TP.
Quote:
The Trading Post and its subforums are community service forums for members of MDC. You must meet the criteria of being a registered member for more than 60 days and have posted a minimum of 50 posts to the MDC boards before you may post to this forum and its subforums.

The Trading Post forums are intended to be a service for active members of MDC. Registration does make you a member and the Trading Post criteria opens posting to you but thereafter measuring "active member" is a difficult task. Suffice it to say that the Trading Post is should not be the focus of your membership here. Members who are found to post the vast majority of their posts to the TP or one of its subforums risk losing their TP posting privileges.
I know you may feel 50 posts is a lot but you have been here less than a month. You may think differently after you have been here a while. Or you may not.
