Hi there, my name's Rikki

Postby Rikochet » Wed Nov 02, 2011 5:15 pm

OK I'm editing this thread as I have been made aware of the Forum rules.

Hi there, my name's Rikki. I've been interested in Altezzas for a while after seeing what I now know to be a very rare car. I went with a friend to see how his car was getting on at a local bodyshop/garage/barn and the guy who owned the place had a huge collection of cars. They were all in various states of repair but stuck right at the back there was a car under a sheet. Now for some reason nothing interests me more than a car under a sheet. After I enquired and he removed the sheet I thought I was looking at a Lexus, but of course it was an Altezza! Not just any Altezza either, it was a TOMs 280T version with TRD everything. I'm not usually a fan of Japanese stuff but this was enough to put me off Fords for life! Please help me find a buyer for my car so I can get an RS200 :)

Seriously?

You edited my For Sale post which was offering my car as a swap for an Altezza?

Not really a good way to attract new members to the site is it? I PM'd Noel as I saw somewhere that I may have had to post on here 20 times before I could put anything on the For Sale thread. Unfortunately I didn't see this until after I'd written it.

Thanks anyway,

Not really a good way to attract new members to the site is it? Its a great rule on site, In my opinion :shock: and seen as most of the members on site wanted it on the site as a rule, because Tezzaworld is a free site and EVERYONE is welcome to join and have a look, have a chat and ask questions BUT what the site isn't, Is the Buy and Sell, Done Deal, Auto Trader and so on. Alot of people were joining and sticking up wanted add's, for sale adds. 20 posts is very fair I think and anyone on here will agree, So its nothing personal at all, Its the same rules for all BUT of course every rule has exceptions :?

I PM'd Noel as I saw somewhere that I may have had to post on here 20 times before I could put anything on the For Sale thread. Unfortunately I didn't see this until after I'd written it.
Thats No problem, Thats why I edited your post and welcomed you to site. Have a look around the site comment on a few topics ask a few questions Build up your post count and then make your way to the far sale/ Wanted section :wink:

Thanks anyway,


And Again, welcome :)

To be honest it's not very clear to new users.

I see why the rule is there, and now you've explained it it makes complete sense, but there no way of setting up the forum so that new users can't physically start a new thread in the For Sale section until they have achieved the desired 20 posts?

Would have saved me half an hour writing out a post only for you to come along and delete it?

Am I right in saying that it would save you a task and would avoid your forum getting clogged up with 20 random posts from every new user who wanted to come on and advertise an Altezza or otherwise?

Anyway I'm off to make nice comments on 17 people's threads. Not yours though. I don't like your attitude. lol

Welcome :)

Admin did try to set up the site so that new members were restricted from posting in the for sale section, but it caused problems with other functions of the site so it was abandoned :(

Thanks for understanding and good luck in your search :)

Cheers

:cry: :cry: You dont like my attitude :shock:
Well opinion's are like a$$holes, everyone has one :wink:

As said before, Your welcome to the forum as is anyone but insulting a mod will make
your stay short.
As you know the rules or at least have an Idea of them now I have removed
your for sale add again :? Thats twice. . Please build up your post count, by asking questions or making a comment on other post's or topics that interest you. As I said Tezzaworld is a free forum. I do understand you are annoyed having spent 20mins making the post for me to delete it but the rules are there I didnt make them I just go along with them as they are what members want. So I apologise for appearing rude by deleting your OP.

Hi there,

Apologies first of all, I posted up a For Sale thread before checking the rules. Although I have less than 20 posts at the moment I am really interested in getting an Altezza as I have been looking at them for some time. Rather than 20 pointless posts I wonder if you could let me leave my ad there for a week or so to see if it generates any interest in a swap? Hopefully it'll sell soon so I can just buy one but I thought this was maybe worth a try?

Thanks,

Rikki
