As part of our efforts to fight scams in the Classified section we have instituted a policy that requires users to be registered for a minimum of 3 days before you can either post an ad or contact a seller.
This feature is simply designed to place an obstacle in the way of creating a quick username and spamming everyone in the classifieds or posting an ad ripped from EBay on the same day.
We will continue to look at ways to identify "users in good standing" and refine this filter.
We apologize to skydivers who are simply trying to list their gear or get in touch with a seller. We trust that you'll be back in a few days and wish you the best of luck with your dealings.
