    Even though we have not allowed threads replies to classified ads for over a year, we still get lots of questions about it.
    So, I thought a tutorial was in order.

    Let's say you found a car that you want to buy and you need to get a hold of the owner to offer some ridiculously low sum for his vehicle. Easy.

    1. Click on the user's username located right under the avatar. That will bring you to a pop up.

    2. On the pop up window, click "start a conversation."

    3. You must have 10 posts in the forum before you can start a private conversation with another user. (due to spam and scammers)

    From there, you can have a private conversation with the user that placed the ad.

    A more thorough tutorial of this with pictures is available here:

    ALSO;
    The App most of the time doesn't work for the classifieds.
    Use your Browser or a PC.

    Also... Please note: The system WILL NOT allow you to reply to your own classified ad until three days have passed since you posted or last replied. We do this to give each ad it's chance at the top of the page.

    Thanks!
