    Dont mean to rant in anyway but..........
    I sell parts here for reasonable prices. I dont make a living on it.
    And have never (Bumped) a sale add.
    Im here to help people with parts they may not find.
    I have also gave free parts to someone in need but for shipping cost.
    But the conversation mailbox finds me deleting posts where I lose those members info?
    Now I have to get a hold of them again for their info?
    I think you need to expand the CONVERSATION capacity a bit to say the least.
    Im a mopar guy, Iwill give parts away before the scrap yard.
    But it seems hard with the little inbox thats afforded.

    Again, I love this site, but if im going out of my way, alot of times, maybe this site should
    as well.........

      What about this, next to me you give away a part, charge 45 bucks, then use that to buy a gold membership which comes with nearly unlimited conversation storage
      (And the part will be sold to a mopar guy, so we're used to being charged through the noze)

        I guess thats the answer. But members PM others for more than than just sales IMO. So I should spend $40 for helping others out in more than one way?

        Upon first contact, ask for the other persons email address & / or supply yours.

        Unlimited replies that way & the PMs will not clog your folder (or theirs) here.

          Some of members dont want to give that info, and if I do get it it is the PM I go back to find it........ most communication is smart phone from work.

          I guess what Im saying is, much easier keeping track of identity of PM past etc. then an email that is not easy to identify from site name

          I won't deal with anyone that is not willing to supply their real world contact information.

              Before the site software update we could export the messages and load them up in an Excel spreadsheet so they were searchable for content or names.
              I don't see any option for exporting them in this new software.

              I'm not very computer Savy so when the site changed to the new format I lost every message even though I was a gold member. Kim

              1 too many zeros there. It's actually 100 for Gold Members....



              I don't agree with 2 usernames. It just creates a mess & not what our FABO community is built on. Just my humble opinion & not directed at anyone! :D

                You can copy and paste the info to a notepad file and save it under the username or sold item etc .
