Default Can't message, Can't reply

It seems that I no longer have the right to send PMs to people on the Swap page. How are they supposed to sell their treasures if we cannot tell them we want to buy?
I tried to post a response to the seller on the Swap page and I was informed I couldn't post that message either.
I hope this message gets through.

I think here and the HAMB you have to have a minimum of 10 posts. Might be something like that here??

Thanks for the response. When did that happen. I have been away for a while, but I used to use the swap meet to buy parts all the time.

I don't know WHEN it was done but it's my guess it was done to stop scammers.

That is a link to Ryan's post about the subject. We have not been able to post a reply on the ads for about 10 years. You should be able to send an email or PM as you have been registered for more then enough time. Are or were you signed in when you tried to PM? What message were you getting that told you that you could not send reply ot PM or email? You should see your handle on the right side in the header. If you are still having problems try sending an email to Ryan, it might get to him.
I sent Ryan a heads up on this subject.

Life got in the way and I have not been very active for the last couple of years. According to my PM Inbox, the last PM I sent was 10-30-2018 and I have a total of 95 messages in my Inbox. I really enjoy the Barn and I have learned a lot from reading the Barn. I do not post very often because most of what I know I have learned here and I find no reason to repeat what has already been stated. I know that sometimes the Barn signs me out for no apparent reason, but I always check to make sure I am signed in when something does not work. The message I received was that I could not send a PM because I did not have 10 postings. It just surprised me because I have done this same thing for years without a problem and when a person is trying to respond to an swap offer, timing is important.

Not so sure it's a waste of time. There are lots of scammers that are trying to take folks for a ride. If a scammer were to post 10 times the odds are pretty good that a member or two would see that they are not on the up and up and report it to Ryan and they would be blocked.

Long time viewer, first time poster. I have used a lot of information on this site. I guess it's time to start posting.

I understand about the scammers, but scammers are a way of life. There were scammers before there was an internet, they just had different methods. I appreciate the Barn trying to protect me from myself, but even though I don't post often, I have sent over 50 PMs since I joined the Barn in 2010. I really don't think that just looking at the single parameter of number of posts is not a very efficient way of determining the validity of a participant. Not to mention the annoyance of attempting to do something I have done 50 times before and receiving a form letter type message saying I cannot send PNs unless I post messages. This is the end of my rant. I have registered my objection and I will go back to my quiet introverted self (though I expect I have learned to post an occasional message of encouragement to the poster when I see something I appreciate).
