Replying to For Sale posts

Postby mister scoops » 15 Sep 2018, 20:21

Hi
I'm a relative newbie here. Is there a reason why I don't have a 'REPLY' button at the bottom of For Sale ads?

You can't reply to ads because of historical problems with people sniping and trolling the content of the classifieds.

PM the originator of the listing.

I have done. I assume then there is a minimum post count prior to being able to reply?

No, it's gone, it's just a pain not being able to reply to the message

IMO a PM is better than a reply to a for sale ad. At least with a PM you know the seller has read it.
