I signed up the other day so I could purchase an add, have waited several days for a response from the seller. Still no response and tried to PM and received a pop up saying I could not use the feature. How does one get to use the pm? Do add responses get blocked from new users?

The add is still active, does this site not work or do the members I messaged just not wanna sell?

The site works fine but it's up to the advertisers to respond. Maybe the member is out for a few days. PM is a separate function, and you need a few forum posts as KJT1 mentions.

The site is fine, you just need to make more posts before you can pm.

Same, have to wait and post x 3.

Quote below from http://www.canuckaudiomart.com/termsofuse.php
-----
Account Addresses must be correct
Your account address must always be accurate. This is an anti-fraud measure and a requirement of using Canuck Audio Mart. Moderators check to make sure users are accessing the site from locations that appear to match the general area of their account address, and will deactivate accounts which are being used from locations deemed to be completely different than the listed address. Many scammers and fraudulent users try to pass off their location as being somewhere they are not, hence this requirement is for the protection of the entire community.

Using Proxies, Fake IPs and Multiple Identities is forbidden
Please access Canuck Audio Mart using one single user account only. You should also only access the site using the IP given to you by your ISP (or if accessing from work, the IP given to you by your office network). Do not use Anonymous Proxy services or other services that may mask your IP and location. If your account is found to be using such services it will be terminated. If your account is posting classifieds or responses from an IP that does not match your account address, it will be terminated. Canuck Audio Mart has no tolerance for fraudsters and suspicious users who attempt to hide their location, ISP, or identity from Moderators.
-----

Does the above mean that you always check every member login to see if it is using the IP address used in registration? If so you must have the process automated.
Am I not allowed to post here from another computer, tablet, library computer, office computer, etc.?
For certain I am not the only member who uses VPNs, the TOR browser, etc. Just have to remember to turn the VPN off before login to this site.
But if it means I can login using any machine in my local geographic area, that's OK, although it defeats the purpose of blocking local scammers.
On the other hand, members cannot access this site if they travel to another state, province, or country.

Looks and sounds like you've got it all figured out.

Been a member for years, bought and sold a few things.

So someone PM'd me a question about something I used to have. I kinda want to answer them, why not help... but not really a forum-er, nothing much to add here.

You need at least 3 forum posts to be able to send or respond to PMs.

Yeah, saw that. But like said, don't really have anything to say at the moment. I guess this counts as two though :)

Mind if I make another post in this thread?

The word association thread is a great place to bump post counts. And it's kind of fun too. :D
