And thank you for your massive contribution during that time.

May I suggest eBay and pistonheads, they don't charge much

I would rather sell it here where i know there are proper genuine buyers.

The 50 post rule is most definitely in force with regard to selling although it has been relaxed for buying. It is was it is. Despite being a register member for 5 years, admin would ask why you have not contributed more than 30 times in the past 5 years. You can't take out if you don't put in, as it were.

Check this out and you'll see why that may not be the best idea in this instance.

Nigerians are the only genuine buyers these days. cash straight into your bank account, no probs.

I have a trade account with Autotrader, if you want PM me the details and I will wack it in for free. I'm allowed to advertise 6 cars, and have free spaces.
I will put your own mobile number on the advert so you get the calls.

quick question,


Lets say the user who posted this thread (been a member for 5 years and only 30 posts) has never really needed to post.

1- For instance, his car has been been trouble free so not needed to ask questions on here.

2- Maybe has had issued but used the SEARCH function and found his own answers to his problem. (after all, people flame new users for not searching before asking the question)

3- He reads on here most nights but does not reply to peoples questions incase he gives wrong advice?


So how can someone like the above get a high post count? He has obviously not joined here to sell something as if they have they have waited a long time !

It seems daft to me that someone being a member for 5 years cant post a for sale thread, but someone can spam there way to 50 in a matter of days/weeks if they wanted. Put the 50 posts over 2 months and no one will notice but a chap that has been on here for over 5 years can sell something and "WE" now flame him for not posting when everyone gets moaned at for not searching instead of posting !

I agree with you, if the reason for the 50 post + 3 months time limit as a registered user is there to be imposed in order to prevent the spammers and those who suddenly show up to advertise and sell things,,, it's fair enough, but in this instance this registered member seems genuine and it's obvious he didn't join just ot sell. I feel it's kinda harsh. As for his contribution, I cannot comment on that. The only thing is though he does not seem to be familiar with the forum that much, given away by the fact that this thread is posted in the wrong section. nevertheless still a bit harsh me thinks.

Yes agreed on the fact that he must not be on here much due to 'we' would guess he would of posted in the correct section.

But does this go back to the point of he uses the search function so is not used to how the forum is set out?

After all, i drive a 34 GTR and you have a 33 GTR! So what section would you presume we post in? The GTR section? We both own GTR's at the end of the day, we dont drive GTST's or GTT's etc, we have GTR's! The GTR section on here is wrong in my eyes, the 32/33/34 GTR was here before the 35 GTR, should the GTR section on here not actually be named the 35 section?

I never understood why there should be seperate section for the R35, I think it was due to a number of old school die hard members moaning that their old Datsuns should be treated differently to the 35, hence the segregation.
If everything was in one section imo it would be much easier. why can we all not get along, as you said they are all GTRs so old or new should have one section tbh, but again this is my personal view before anyone snaps at me.

I tend to agree with Matty Supra and Nigel-Power. I go through phases of using this and one or two other forums. This one in particular is a fantastic source of information and I have spent many hours on here without saying a word. In fact I used it for a long time before I even signed up.
Some people spend lots of time on here and post endlessly about all sorts of topics and other just read what they say.
I think it is also fair to say that some people may say a lot and 'contribute' very little.
I understand the reason for the 50 post rule but it clearly isn't full proof and sometimes it isn't relevant. This may be one of those times.

LOL, ye.

But it did happen. Maybe a few months before you joined here? But i dont think it was that long ago, must be tho.

Anyway, the R35's got joined with the R32/33/34 but there was to many complaints and the R35 lot got there own section.

Nigel, the problem is that 99% of the R35 owners wont come out of the R35 section. For instance MOOK tried to merge the R35 projects with teh rest of the skyline's a few months back but again the R35 people got there own way.

Its very sad really, The R35 lot are stuck in a small box hidding there cars from the skyline (true GTR lot Maybe??? ) lot and in tern getting snubbed back. Nobody cares about the R35 and nobody wants one. There price is dropping like mad and now cheaper than a R34 GTR built 10+ years ago ! Well its no wonder when the R35 lot have no intrest in the older skylines.

More funny is the older lots (32/33/34's) , well most of them would leave a R35 standing around a track!

Like myself as well, in actual of fact I have been using this forum regularly since 2005, at least 3-4 days a week, but I never joined, it seemed very hostile at the time. plust I had no GTR so there was no need, but I was just reading and info etc. I even know the old members from back in the day. If you look at the bottom of the page where stasts are shown, there are always more visitors viewing than registered members, by 3 fold.

If it was up to the 35 owners they would probably downgrade the skyline owners even more, or even more extreme... expell them from this forum into another datsungtr.co.uk/notsophisticated/enough
