Any help will be appreciated.

Users are not allowed to post in the For Sale forum until they have a post count of 25 posts. You should be able to respond to ads via your private messages if you see plants for sale that you would like.

If you look a few posts further up, this is addressed:

It's not a perfect system, but I can assure you that the spirit of the rule is to keep people from abusing our forum and to encourage contribution to the community. Sorry for the confusion.

Yes, Natalie is correct. The rules were changed since this was originally posted.

This is only a little off subject but I haven't seen it mentioned anywhere, what are plant points and what does accruing them signify?

Thanks,
Ken

Is this a post?

You earn plant points by starting threads and posting to other threads (being a contributing member to the community). Plant points are used to buy food and do things with the digi-pets some people have, like the fox I have. Originally the pets were an incentive in a fund raising drive (donate $20 and get a pet!), then there were a few offered as a prize. Just a fun thing for those interested.

I'm getting a "Deal URL is invalid error" when trying to submit +feedback

Is there something wrong with the following URL?

https://www.aquaticplantcentral.com/f...ants-sale.html

Try submitting the feedback without the URL, Mac! You also don't have the magical "25" post number yet. That could be causing you the problem...........

OK, that's what I did. Thanks Donald. It isn't optional at pt.net. Actually, it should be required here too so people know what's being talked about...

There we go, one step closer to 25-post legitimacy! har.
