    Searching in the trade forum?

    IS it just me, or is this not an available feature? I can pick any other sub forum to search in except the market. That's really the place I think a search would be helpful to be honest...

    Search should be available for members that are allowed to post there.
    Here's a thread that speaks a little bit to the subject of permissions in the trade section:
    ############## "WHY can't I post in the Trade Section?" ##############

    Hope that helps!

    Jaded is so overrated. Cynicism is so last year. Misery has enough company. Dare to be happy.

    I understand the need to limit posting to proven members, but what is the point of limiting the seartch function? Also, doesn't that rule just encourage post whoring? I don't usually just post in a thread to make some silly smily or say "ya me too", but if the only way I can prperly use the market is to do that, that's what I'll have to do....

    We consider search-ability in Trade to be an earned right as well. Limiting the Trade search to people that can Trade also helps a little to discourage transactions between established members and those that haven't participated in the forums for very long.

    We highly discourage "post-whoring" and members do so at the risk of losing their posting and trading privileges indefinitely.

    Re: Searching in the trade forum?

    So, I now have 50 posts and 1 month membership. am I missing anything else? I'm not really trying to unload a collection or dupe anyone, I just want some bodies, and it's hard to have to wade through tons of stuff I have no interest in.
