I'm new here, but have just made my 25th post, but cannot post a response to a classified ad. Why?
I've been a member for some time, but have received ZERO communication from any kind of administrator or moderator to "activate" me, or whatever - or however it works. Two PM's to "contact us" have gone unanswered. Is there some kind of glitch in the system?
Thanks!

Is is something that you can 'pm' the person?

Or is it an ad that doesn't allow responses?

Hang in there - someone will help, cuz that's the kind of folks we have around here.

Here's an example:
I wanted to respond to an ad, asking about a certain plant to purchase - but I don't have "permission" to respond to that topic.

You are better off to PM the seller anyway. Try that till the problem is fixed.

I have tried PM'ing a few different ones, to see what would happen. I never get any responses, so I believe that they are not even going through.

The rules are in place to help prevent abuse. However - you can still contact others through the PM system.

Please try sending me a PM. If that does not work I will forward this on to Kyle (the site owner) for you. There should be no post requirement for PM's.

I just sent you one - and it doesn't seem to have gone through. There's no "sent" or "outbox" message to you.

One more thing . . . You can request a read receipt with your pm's. That way you know if they got it - IF they agree to respond to your read receipt request . . . some people just aren't good at getting back to folks after the deal has gone through. That may be what happened to you.

Done, and enabled sent items - works - thanks much!

Now, it only remains to be seen as to why the vendor isn't responding.

I do not see any guideline for the reason I cannot post a response on the vendor's post?

I have more than 25 posts now, and I was asking whether or not they still had that particular plant in stock. (Two separate ones : Sinningia bullata, and Ficus p. quercifolia.) ?

There is a time constraint as well though I do not believe that is publicly displayed (prevents people from gaming the system). If the seller is not responding to PM's/emails (you can send an email as well) you probably do not want to work with them anyhow (IMO). ;)

You have to check a box at the bottom saying to save your message in your sent/outbox. If you don't check this before sending each message it won't show there.
