    Saw items of interest and tried to figure out how to contact the seller with no luck. Joined and signed in, still no luck. No option to start a conversation, no reply or other option on the parts for sale or in the sellers profile. Wondering if there is a restriction on new members but no info about that anywhere that I could find. About to give up after wasting over an hour of my life on this. Ummbaa, you are about to lose an opportunity. Sorry

    Think I was on the HAMB for a year before I thought I'd provided enough info, and help to others to use the FREE classified section. But that was 17 years ago and the world is totally different now.

    ya, but.... read the info on what i tried, after reading the info you referred to. I read it, tried it, and what comes up for me is NOT what that info describes, which is why I was wondering if there is a hold on new folks signing up before they can post to fight the computer generated sign ups. Specifically, I went to the sellers name below his avatar, clicked it, that opened a pop up that has info about him but no email, reply, send, start a conversation or any other option that allows anything but a read only. I just tried it all again and no change.

    Did you read it? here is number 3 from the link I sent


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

    maybe ummbaa will see this and contact me!
    or will it work if i just keep posting nonsense to get past 10?

    On the menu in your screenshot you are not getting the "start a conversation" option because, as all the info given states, YOU DO NOT HAVE 10 POSTS UP YET.

    When you get your 10 posts done, and wait about 24 hours for it to kick in, the "start a conversation" bit will appear between 'profile page' and 'follow'. Then you will be able to go for your life. Them's the rules....................;)

    @ummbaa
    There, I have alerted the seller to this thread for you.

    You are welcome.
    Maybe constructive posting would be a more acceptable option. Nonsense posts will not go down well.
    Have a look around the place. I'm sure you will find somewhere you can contribute some positive stuff.
    (Looks like your wanted ad has not got off to a good start.)

    Ya, I get that but as the title suggests, pretty frustrated just trying to buy a part. Dont even need it. Just might like to have it. Dont like spending tons of time on computers, too much stuff to do. Wasnt looking to join a whole new deal. Just wanted to make an offer on a part offered here. Had no idea it would require so much time and effort and delays. Back to the shop to try and make up lost time haha.
    I will refrain from nonsense posts and move on. thanks

    And you are now sitting on seven posts. Only three to go. Don't stop now. Much as Moriarity said above, this is a great place when you find your way around. Great info, great people, and a great free classified section. The 10 post thing is actually there to protect members from possible scams, and that's a good thing.................Stay, and enjoy.:D
