We have been tightening up our anti-fraud policy in the Equipment Exchange forums in the past 6 months. Users that have minimum postings tend to have lower probability to gain access to to the EE forums.

If you want to increase your chance to gain access, it is best to contribute to the forums. For example, ff you post an introduction and disappear, in general you will be scored lower in the access assessment.

Finally, access to the Equipment Exchange forums is not guaranteed. A request can be denied for many reasons. Our objective is to provide a safe place for community members to exchange items. We are NOT a commercial classified space so we are happy to limit access to only those we think could be contributing to the positive experience in the Equipment Exchange forums.
