    OK, I know I’m the new guy but why is it I cannot reply to classified ads? I constantly get a message saying I do not have permission to reply.

    Just like a newspaper ad. It tells you about the item. It is not a discussion forum.

    And of course they haven't called it a PM since the changeover from the old software. You now have to "start a conversation" with the parts thread poster.

    Just make sure you maintain 6 feet of space between you and the seller

  10. Did you ask your wife for permission to buy it? That's the real question. :p

    How is it then that I also don’t have permission to post in the wanted section? System error, you don’t have permission........

  16. You, me nor anyone else can reply on a classified advertisement, that goes for wanted, parts for sale or cars for sale.

    You do have permission to start a classified ad. HRP

  17. There was some trouble posting ads using the app. Try logging in the old fashion method.

    For Newbies, some advise on the wanted Ads, even some sales Ads, Make sure it is a regular poster/user here with some rapport. Also if the deals seems too good to be true... Wanted Ads get a lot of scammers, call backs, reverse search the images to see if they are stolen from the net. Always use PP as business with them, whom you dont know as "Friends". good luck.

  19. Everyone in the whole world now knows that you didn’t bother to Read the sticky or the rules.
    Several years ago there was a change to classified section and NO ONE can bump the thread. EVERYONE must private message the original poster by starting a conversation.

    Damn this shit gets old

    Thanks guys, I think I actually see what’s going on. Using the app gives you a reply bar at the bottom. That’s what I didn’t understand. When I log on using internet explorer no message bar. I really like the forum and classifieds but man there are some cranky people out there.

  22. Some of the members can be crabby but lets face it, if a guy has been a member as long as I have we see these same questions at least once a week sometimes more.

    It just seem no one reads the rules for the classifieds. HRP

    This is nice compared to what might have been said 15 years ago. The guys back then scared me to the point that it took years for me to have the courage to join up. Kids today have it so easy -that's a joke son.

    You can go under your profile and check the box that enhances the Hamb experience so it's more suited to your level of sensitivity. Here let me hold your purse while you look for the settings.... :p:D;)

    On another note, I have found my T/F simpson mask handy for buying TP at the store. IF you are the tenth person in the door. Lippy

    You haven't seen nuthin' yet.... I had a guy from new York screaming at me when I wouldn't sell him my skinny sprint magnesium wheels for less than half. Told me his kidney beans were worth 4 g's but my sprints were only worth a grand or so. I told him since my parts are shit and his are gold, why does he want mine so bad. Then I refused to sell them to him at any price. I ended up having to threaten him with the moderators for harrassing me, was the only way to get him to stop. It was really F'd up since i had my 14 year old son in the car with me, but he was just laughing, so actually turned out being a life lesson for my boy.
  29. You guys are looking at this all wrong.
    Every new guy (or old guy) that can’t figure out the rules results in one less person that can get that rare part you are after.
    It also keeps the old cranky guys busy. They might not have time to see your flaky post or misspellings. :) ;)
