    I came here mostly because I wanted to do a watch swap.

    I like watches, I follow some youtube channels etc. I wouldn't consider myself by any means a die hard. I only own around five or so watches from low to mid grade. A youtube reviewer recommended this forum for sales and swaps. I didn't realize they had such a section. I realize they want to keep out scammers and bots etc.. But is there anyway to validate yourself quicker than the 100 posts and 90 days time? I mainly registered so I could put up what I have for swap. Is there any other validation procedure that I could possibly go through to authenticate myself quicker ? I have done 100's of swaps over the years, but not with watches, mostly fragrances on ebay and facebook groups. Anyway, sorry if this message is inappropriate or sounds silly. Just was wondering if there was anything I could do.

    Regards
    Paulie

    100 posts and 90 days seems like a fairly light requirement to me. And it goes pretty quickly.

    This. It can feel inconvenient as a new member but it will go by fast. And if you stick around you'll be glad that there's a requirement to help keep the spammers and scammers away.

    This forum is a good place to sell and trade precisely because it is a community of watch enthusiasts. There is no way to circumvent the requirements, and that's a good thing.

    The 100 posts and 90 days applies only to the Sales Corner. There are no such prerequisites for the Trade Corner. Must be WTT only and I'd suggest reading the rules and stickies first.
