    To start a conversation I click on to the persons name and their profile page comes up. In the profile page it used to say start a conversation. Now the words ,start a conversation do not appear no matter what. I also was able to place an ad in the wanted section a couple weeks ago. Thank you for that. Now the wanted section isn’t even an option in the classifieds. I’m confused as to why I used to have access to these and now I can’t. Thank you.

    I just ran diagnostics on your account. They went well... and your account has access... Check your private convos... I sent a reply to the diagnostics.

    It still doesn’t work for me. I don’t know what I’m doing wrong. Not good with computer stuff.I don’t know what a mobile app is. I am using an I pad, I do not have a cell phone. Everything else works except ,no start a conversation,and no wanted section. Thanks for helping.

    Why can’t I reply to a classified ad, says I don’t have access? Just got a new password after forgetting mine.

    I agree. I've had that happen more than once and I've also dealt with people who have bent over backwards to answer questions about an item they were selling. It seems reasonable that a seller who doesn't respond to questions should be censured by the moderators.
     
  19. i think it would need to be consistant complains for action to actually be taken, wouldnt want someone whos bitter about them not taking a low ball reporting an honest seller!

    who knows how often some people are on the board here. Kinda like complaining about how people don't answer their telephones these days. I don't know exactly how it happened but we seemingly live in a world where people want to conduct their lives with virtually zero human contact...

    for those trying to contact sellers, did you visit their profile page and see when was the last time they were on the board here???

    With this being your first post ever in 6 years, maybe stay around a while and participate in the forum discussions. I have a strong feeling that will get you there.
