    I am quite sure that this is not what Ryan had in mind. clogging up the QandA forum with useless crap posts. How about actually participating in a discussion on the main forum???

    Sorry but I don’t really have any thing to say, but I would just like to be able to respond to people that have cars and parts for sale in your classifieds. Maybe everyone who places an ad should be required to include a phone # and email . It’s very frustrating to not be able to respond to something that you would like to buy. Thank you.

    Thank you for allowing me to respond to classifieds. Not trying to be a wise guy, but something to consider is requiring ads to include a phone # so people can actually buy and sell stuff easier. Sometimes the old fashioned way is better. ( In reference to technology- Sometimes, just because you can doesn’t mean you should.) Thank you again. The HAMB is an awesome resource.
     
  15. But you are.
    After 20+ years of FREE classifieds you join and tell us that? I don't know how they do it on the other free classified places you use, but that's the way it is here.

    A new guy moaning about a free facility is just bad manners.

    You're thinking of the newspaper classifieds.

    Sure, Change the rules for the new guy with no interest in the HAMB or what it stands for.

    You're a fucking idiot. And i hope whatever part it is that you came here for is already sold or the seller sees what you are saying about the rule that @Ryan put in place and doesn't answer you. If i was a moderator, you'd be gone.

    Hello, i´m a new member from Germany. I only want to buy a car from the "car for sale" section.
    Why do i have more than 10 posts to contact a car seller, who´s selling a not custom car or a hot rod.
    Sorry, should i post 10 posts about my not custom Dodge to sell a not custom car?

    I don´t understand that. Why is it not easier to contact a seller?

    Can you help me?

    Kind regards

    Christoph

    this is a fairly new rule to combat the scammers we had in the classifieds. the requirements are clearly spelled out in the rules of the classifieds section. the rules are marked by giant red stop signs ...

  23. Some people think this is just a buy/sell website. That's a problem. Classifieds is not why this place exists.:rolleyes:

    I only have sent pm's to reply to ads. I really don't like sending contact info for the world to see. It might just be the reason the moderators say there is a spam problem. Now, I can't send a pm for a ad to purchase a car because I have no posts. This doesn't seem well thought out.
     
  25. ......One post in 10 1/2 years. Way to be involved!:rolleyes:
     
  26. A complaint :rolleyes:

    True, I haven't posted "nice car" 10 times. I have had conversations with several members privately. Guess that doesn't count.

    I found an ad and want to contact the seller. On the ad is a statement "you have insufficient privalages to reply" If I click the seller username I get his profile, location,feedback etc but no start conversation button. I am a H.A.M.B.member
