    For example 10 posts in other categories:
    -to eliminate people who asking constantly for review copies or discounts, just to make post counter
    -eliminate scammers, spammers or resellers

    I have many questions "how much", "pm me", "give me discount", but nobody is ever answering to PM

    Not a seller here but I agree with you!
    At times, they post fake positive reviews just to increase post count.

    The only minus, is that newbie cannot PM, but he can always write an email to seller or contact via skype.

    What if you own an offline store and you sell premium branded clothes let`s say; what if a poor man comes in and looks around, what you will do? You kick him out?

    It`s your duty as a seller to answer.

    It might discourage a lot of new members from asking questions since they can't send PMs as well.

    You didn`t get my point.

    YOU, as a seller, must answer on each question however stupid or clever it is.
    THEY, as buyers have the right to ask you how many questions they want.

    And BTW; you should be happy because they bump your sales thread lol.
    Have a nice Sunday ahead! ​

    Hey Vinku,

    Consider it free pumping of your thread :)

    The rule of minimum post for Marketplace doesnt suit well, cause eventually they may spam elsewhere. And then finally post on your thread and the result would end up same, without any replies.

    Also all BHW Marketplace threads are listed on Google, and could be viewed by anyone. hence its only fair to allow new members to post on the thread.

    Your idea would eventually lead to more spam posts around BHW. Which results in more work for the mods.

    I do understand your frustration, but buddy Spam in kindof unavoidable and is everywhere.

    Don't think it's a good idea. I'd respond to the PMs regardless of if they were post inflating just because of common business practice. If they buy. they buy. If they don't and it was a simple post inflate, I get a free bump of my thread. Win win.

    your idea came without looking at the whole picture. you forget the ppl who register to reply to get a discount or a client who has a random question created an account just for asking question X about services Y (new members can't pm)

    He has a legit purpose for this request.

    Most of the staff is aware.

    I don't see that coming into play but I do feel his pain as he has been attacked by a jackwagon and the crew of that jackwagon here.

    I'll not close this and leave it for other staff members to manage it but the OP has had people (I've cleaned up a bunch of posts) attacking him in his sales thread.

    Isn't leaving fake reviews bannable?
    And that's why BHW requires to place order number in-thread before giving a review?
    Or I drank way many vodkas.

    I agree with you. Spam is everywhere. It's really annoying.

    If the reviews are fake and you have genuine proof, report them.

    There's a whole separate section in Jr VIP area.

    If the reviews are proven to be fake the person leaving will be banned.
    More so if the BST owner(s) are found to have contrived this, they will be dealt with too.

    If you're annoyed already after a few days, maybe try reporting any spam you see?

    I've also noticed some users that posts to marketplace threads with weird stuff just to increase their post count.
