I am not with you. All you need is 30 posts, don't have to pay anything.

Nope, you're by yourself I'm afraid. Going by what you posted here, I'm sure it's safe to assume that you won't bother reading any tech info and would just rather post up questions that have been answered millions of times before.

Alternately, it's also probably the place where you see the LEAST amount of scamming and people getting ripped off... hmm.. Coincidence??

I agree. They do an outstanding job here on RCC and the rules are there for a reason. Just go with the flow and be happy a site like this exists.
Take a few weeks to learn whats out there and Im sure that after your 30/30 you will have a whole new outlook on crawlers. Or bitch and moan about things and nobody will ever give you the time of day. Your choice.

Nothing says "thanks for putting all this great info where I can easily access and learn from it" like insulting the people that help keep it here. Good job.

Ok, well I'm new here and to RC in general. I will say I fully agree with the rule, could be made better by allowing people to just look untill they get their star. That's just my opinion, not my forum so they can run it anyway they wish. My be harsh for me to say this but if you don't like it you don't have to come here at all. I will say this I'm not gonna purchase a star, I'll just read, ask questions, reply to things like this and get my star the easy way. Like me or don't like me that's my opinion.

I don't know about flaming, but I will poke the hell out of you...

First, look at how the classifieds are posted, they are ALL reviewed by a mod before we can see them, no E-Bay links, you post what you have and for how much you want for it, no grey area.

Second, people have paid for their subscriptions, so they are a lot less likely to try to scam you. I have made sever transactions and have never had a bad one.

Third, the only site I have seen that is more moderated (notice I did not say 'better') is the Traxxas site, their for-sale section is free, just as long as you are selling Traxxas equipment.

Forth, if you don't like the rules, feel free.... no, feel obligated to go elsewhere. Of course, this is only my opinion, but I have a feeling the mods will tell you the same thing...

FYI: the only way to recieve a star is to purchase it. The 30/30 rule only allows you access to the FS section. You still aren't able to recieve all the bonuses that come along with being a supporting member, namely the giveaways.

The only way to get a star is by buying one, after your 30 posts will only give you access to the classifieds. So till then happy reading!!
