Newly allowed or a glitch in the system?

Someone found it awfully fast and took advantage of it even faster then.

Or didn't know it existed.

Most probably.

most probably agree it was not a scheming intent.

Mayhaps…BUT the speed in which those items were posted could have left NCC 1701 in the dust!

It's been going on for a while.

I know it was happening during the last big kerfuffle we had here, but unaware of it recently.

Considering it's a bug, it must still be a problem, because those posts are still there, or perhaps the staff doesn't care?

Perhaps they don't think it is a terrible thing and that they'll just get it fixed. It is hardly damaging to the community. This isn't United Airlines after all.

I asked the guy yesterday who had 7 posts in the Marketplace: he stated this afternoon that he was unaware and that he had sent payment to Bill today.

So, yes, I think some people are simply unaware and others are simply avoiding payment (based on the amount of complaint buttons I've hit over the last several weeks as Bill advised us to do previously).

It's not a question of 'damage': it's a matter of fairness. I pay for the privilege of posting in the Marketplace: why should a Basic Member be allowed to without paying-?

you were that kid in 5th grade that we all remember.

Joes Shop Supporting Member of TMP18 Apr 2017 12:20 p.m. PST

Was that an attempt at humor-?

Who is 'we' ?

If you can't think of something constructive to say…now think, can you finish that sentence-?

Hint: you were probably taught that in the 5th Grade.

There is a gap of time between when you pay to maintain or start your subscription and when it is approved. In that gap I found myself, and not knowing the glitch, posted in the market place in the past. It's worth noting on the part of the site where it takes your money that rights and privileges begin when the subscription is approved. We all get so used to everything being basically instant on the web.
