    I don't know if there's a FAQ for new members or not, so this could be covered. I've seen a LOT of new members constantly asking people in the Replica Props section if things are for sale, or even making offers in those threads. I can totally get the enthusiasm because there's a lot of cool stuff here. It's just kind of annoying, to read and I imagine if you're the one posting the item. However if there's not already something telling new members that things are for sale only in the Junkyard, we might want something out there that says so.

    It's almost impossible for new members to miss the info, but they somehow manage it. :lol

    This giant non-dismissible notice explaining the entire buying/selling process is at the top of every page until you are no longer a new member!

    Agreed :p I'm new to this board, obviously, and I just found this forum a few days ago. After I had registered I thought it was pretty crystal clear that the Junkyard is the only place where you buy stuff.

    One thing that may not be as crystal clear is I guess are some of the abbreviations for example WTB, FS, FS/T, INT, FA, NP... "Want To Buy", "For Sale", "For Sale/Trade" and so on.

    I do see one issue. I never saw this huge banner at the top of the page as a noob. HOW? well because my firewall blocks the banner at the top of theRPF.

    im not sure how to get around this though. things like the costume contest, i didnt even know about it until the last day when i just happened to take my laptop home and hop on here. hope this helps in some way.

    maybe its just me, maybe its just websense.
