I've been a member for 1 year, yet I'm unable to post in the restricted threads. Can this be made automatic once someone has been a member for 1 year?
How do I apply? Have sent an email to Chin Leng but received no reply so far.
Hi, I need help. Have been going to different thread to post my message, but no help was rendered. I'm alrdy 1 yr as a member, and would like to post in WTS and overseas sites, hve sent email to Chin Leng, but it's been so so long, and there's no reply frm a single one of them. Is there a way to get through to them???
Still no help from the moderator, can anyone advise pls?????? How to get to them or at least, get them to reply. This is really frustrating, hve missed out so many spree already. Christmas is over, and New year is coming.
I don't know why must restrict to one year membership. Becos we also may want to organise spree or buy (thus need to post) even during pregnancy (therefore less than 1 year membership).
It make things very difficult because i have no choice but to wait for someone who can post to organise the spree. If there is no one organising, i can't get any spree along, have to wait and wait.
To join the spree, also have to email or pm instead of posting which posting will be so much convenient. End up i tink the spree organiser also have to check her pm and email often or else may miss out my order.
Hi, i oso want to org a spree. So just wanna ask if mod can allow my status to hold 1 spree and then deactivate it back?
Wanna get some honey from Aus but shipping to exp if i buy myself leh....
Or maybe u get us to email u first for permission to org a spree, and give spree details. If u feel its okie then u allow us to spree. Once spree finish we have to apply to spree again. Something like the BP section lah...
haiz.. i sent a request thru emails and posting on the thread 2 weeks ago also no reply.. wonder if they even read?? i also wana post in WTS and i dun wana be like other inconsiderate members who ride on other threads leh...
i tot only members who have joined for 1 year then they are allowed to set up a spree/ or sell things. I can't even post and sell but this new member can. How come this new member can sell ah? What logic is this? Not fair lei.... When i start posting my items for sale, ppl come after me then this new member very "TOK GONG" lei. If she can, i also can lah.
Just to let u know what's the meaning of an overseas spree. An overseas spree is where we purchase from an overseas online store and pricings are transparent to all of us. Purpose of organising an overseas spree is to share shipping costs. This is very different from a BP where the organiser maybe getting their stuff from an overseas supplier.
I believe there is a purpose that CL impose the 1 yr restrictions. In other overseas sprees forum, there's even more strict restrictions on been qualifying to be an organiser which I came across.
Dear members of less than a year,
SMH has come a long way and one point there was so much bulk purchase n sprees going on that it take up so much bandwidth and memory space. Later, we found out many of such sprees and big purchases were actually conducted by profiteers and not genuine mummmies who want to share out the cost. This business people get to earn bulk bucks and yet need not pay a single cent to post on this forum. To prevent such abuse from continuing, after many brainstorming with the moderators and feedback from members. Chin Leng has no choice but to come out with such policies. Maintaining this forum requires lots of money and as members we do not pay a cent to use it. Pls be understanding before jumping the gun and criticise the moderators who are volunteering their services in this forum.
think may be they should change the setting, instead of restricting new members to post in WTS & spree, they should change to only restricting people to start a thread, but still able to post to participate.
Sorry that I wasn't able to reply to all your emails.
Those who had registered in Mar 2007 and have been participating in the forum, are now able to join the WTS and Overseas spree sections. An email has been sent to you.
To other members,
there is no need of application. Members who are eligible will be able to participate in the Restricted Marketplace by middle of the month upon hitting the one year registration, eg. those who registered in Apr 2007, will be able to participate by mid-April 2008. You will be notified by email.
Of course, you can still write to me for clarification or if you did not receive my email notification when you should.
