    This is proper behavior. Beginner+ for Classifieds, except when the user is a Premium Member.

    Restricting access to Beginner+ is a way to prevent scammers, but if a person has made a donation/grabbed up a premium subscription then they have used personal financial information (PayPal account, a debit/credit card, etc) which would reveal their identity which is something scammers rarely rarely ever do.

    Gotcha. Didn't realize Premium Members also had access. Makes sense though. Thanks!

    Yup, we'll be redoing all of the guides/info threads very soon with all these types of changes that haven't really been documented that well over the past 5 years as we've gradually changed things in and out.

    I thought the same thing when I saw a V1 up for sale. Thanks for clarifying @xydrine.

    I'm a beginner, but premium member. If I have access to classifieds, or anything else "above" beginner--I don't see links for it/them............

    Thanks!

    Not only a beginner--but a blind one! I found the Clasified forum---kindly remove above comment, or disregard!
