It must be terribly disheartening for a seller to see they have twelve replies to their listing when all twelve of them are something along the lines of "Lovely cozzie, it will sell in no time."

If you would like to compliment the seller on the costume, please feel free to send a PM.

If you are not interested in buying the cozzie, then DO NOT REPLY to the thread.

Replies that do not indicate interest in purchasing the listed cozzie will be removed. Repeat offenders will have administrative action taken against them. This means possible bannings.

Thanks again

As a new member I think people sometimes put these comments on as you have to post 23 public comments to become a full member, this for them is probably the quickest and easiest way to do this.And No I havent done so myself.

This is true. However, when these posts are found, they are removed, which brings the member's post count back down to zero. So it isn't worth the time it takes to post on For Sale threads.

Hi

I am a new member and want to apologise as I have added comments to costumes for sale as I misunderstood what I needed to do to become a full member. I did not mean to cause offense.

It is a little confusing when you look at costumes for sale and see commments added that do say "lovely costume hope you sell quickly" etc.

Again apologies and will not make same mistake again.

No, you don't have to reply to For Sale listings to become a full member. You have to make 20 valid posts and be a member for seven days to achieve full membership. Replying to a For Sale listing is not a valid post.

Another way you could achieve this 20 posts landmark is by looking on the other boards (try Disco-Disco, Disco - Solos or Disco - Photos) and contributing to the conversations there.

hey, there are loads of different sections within disco(and outwith disco) that you can leave comments on so there are plenty other ways to become a full member without leaving invalid posts on the for sale sections!

I am also a new member and didnt realise that you couldnt do this because you just look at what other people are doing on the site. Am looking for a new costume for my daughter but because I cant PM I find I am getting no repies from sellers to the questions I am posting which is frustrating when looking for a costume quickly.

I am also a new member, and i agree to the person above me, it is a bit annoying when you are interested in a costume and cant PM the person selling it :)
