Re: Hi everyone ;)

Does anyone know why I cannot post on "items wanted" thread? It says that I don't have permissions but my account got activated and I can post what can be seen by this thread.

Because you don't have enough posts. You have to get through the grilling EF bootcamp where a couple of "Legends" reply to your every question with arrogance and superiority for a couple of weeks and if you manage to go through that while posting enough replies then you get access. Pretty much useless anyway, you're better off on the Facebook marketplace or Zurich buy and sell groups.

Whoa, that's the reason I created this account. Well, marketplace is full of random stuff and I need to get specific ones (like bicycle for big people )
Anyway, thanks

Re: Hi everyone ;)

Or, as it is most of the time, 7 days membership and 10 (non fluff) posts......

So welcome here, only a couple of days and posts to go.

C'mon, is not that bad. As long as you don't need a car* you're relatively....safe.


*and when I said car, I meant to buy it. Incredible amount of vicious crap thrown at people who're just asking for advice. Stay away from these threads.

Re: Hi everyone ;)

The rules are that new users must write a minimum of 10 posts AND show some sort of sensible participation in the forum discussions, before being allowed to post in the marketplace. The mods decide what is regarded as real participation, and which posts get dismissed as "fluff".

Some people feel that this hurdle helps to preserve the true nature of the English Forum as a place for English-speaking people to discuss aspects of living in Switzerland, and that upholding this hurdle prevents the forum from being downgraded to a mere marketplace.

Others, however, of whom I am one, believe that the marketplace itself is, indeed, a very useful service to English-speaking people in Switzerland, and that we'd do well to do away with this rule. It isn't going to happen, though.

The rules are the rules. Welcome to the forum, anyway.

For finding second-hand things, try www.tutti.ch.
And keep posting here on the forum, until you've been accepted.
