Posting in FAQ and Wanted boards.

Can someone please explain the reasoning of making these boards only accessible to "premium" or higher members?

I can understand posting in classified if you are trying to sell something and make a dime but for someone trying to find a year specific part not being able to post in the wanted forums in my opinion is not right.

I tried posting this in the FAQ board but apparently I don't have access to that either.

Re: Posting in FAQ and Wanted boards.

This is not craigslist or ebay. There doesn't even need to be a classifieds section on this forum. Being a subscription service trims out the scammers and spammers. It ensures the classifieds will be populated by actual contributing site members, rather than hundreds of posts trying to sell one thing where the person never comes back and can't be reached if someone actually does want to buy it.

Hell, members even can go to the pay it forward / free parts listing.
