We've installed a new option on the Navigation bar, entitled "Your Classifeds Threads"

Click on "My TP" then "My Classifieds Threads" as below.



You will then be shown a list of all the threads you have started in the Classifieds forums. This list will include threads that are already archived, as shown below :



Look down the list and note the ones that are not in the Archive forums.
(Youll see in the example above, that means the first one in the list. The second one has already been archived).

Please note it is irrelevant if the thread is closed or not (has a padlock next to it). It *must* be archived when completed, or you may not be able to start more classifieds threads.

Once you have identified your old unarchived threads, click here for how to move them to the archive.

I think you'll find the bulk of your posts have been today which looks like your just posting anything to get your post count up to gain access to the classifieds.

I'm sure a Mod will be along soon to confirm/explain. :)

Seems as though you have managed it OK now.
The software takes awhile to "upgrade" once you hit the magical 26 posts

How to unarchive a thread archived in error?
I don't think you can.
Just hit the RTM button (the little red triangle) in the thread
with the details,
and some kind passing mod will do it for you.

Edit found it and did it

I have created two threads in Classifieds - For Sale or Swap - Accessories and Misc. I have tried to create a third but am barred from doing so. Apart from these two, all my previous classified threads are archived.

Is two threads per section a limit, or have I been prevented from posting for some other reason?

Can a moderator please advise on this? - Thanks

Correct, 2 threads per section maximum. You'll have to wait until one of them has run its course and archive it before starting another one. Otherwise, we'd end up with some people starting a single thread for each and every item in the kitbag that they're selling, and one person could swamp an entire section.

in addition to Marks post above, can I suggest you reread all the rules of classifieds, this issue is covered in there, as is what we expect by way of posts in classifieds compared to posts elsewhere, which might be helpful to you :)

I should have looked there, but I didn't think the limit would be in the rules - I.E. It couldn't be broken. Senior moment you see - I need to print them out!

Can someone advise how to unarchive a thread now?
I don't seem to have the menus shown above.
You have to ask a mod to unarchived, via report the thread.

Click on the thread from the list then look at any post for the Report button.

Usually about here V beside the poster's name and the date/time of the post, below any signature. Might be different if you're using the app rather than the website.

Any idea how i report the thread?
I have no options on the thread at all.
I am using the tapatalk app and if I hold on the post I get an option to report, not tried it on the actual forum.
