    Hello why does it say
    (You have insufficient privileges to reply here.) in the classifieds section. I have been here long enough and have enough post but I still can't reply to anyone about items....

    For anyone wondering why this policy was implemented, there have been issues on this and other forums. People would post negatively about the item for sale or about the prices. Rather than waste a moderator's time and spend time soothing hurt feelings, the "private message communication only" rule was instituted. It's worked pretty well for the last 8 or so years.

    I understand that and think its a good idea also but what I was saying is I couldn't send a PM either.

    One of the profile settings is to switch conversation initiations between "members" and "people you follow only."

    That person may have restricted conversations to people they follow only.

    I preferred the old way. I had nothing to do with changing the policy. I'm probably one of the few who remember the old way BST operated. @stingraysrock, @Yehuda D or @gorgo2 might remember the exact reasons better than I. @Queen of Blades surely does.

    *shrug* I'm fine with the setup we have now, and honestly can't remember what it was like before.
