  • Private Messages:  You can receive and reply to private messages, but you cannot start new private messages.
    • Why?  Because too many spammers have ruined it for you and this protects our members.
  • Ten Days, Ten Posts:  Once you have been with us for at least 10-days and made at least 10 public posts in other forums outside of the Trading Post, you can automatically move out of New Member status and start sending your own private messages.
  • So how do you contact a seller? 
    • Post publicly in their thread.  Ask them to contact you.
    • Don't provide a phone number or email address publicly.  That's dumb.  People will spam you.
    • Don't haggle with them publicly.  All negotiating happens in private.


Want to skip ahead to the good stuff?  Want to send private messages NOW?

  • All of the above can be bypassed by becoming a Benefactor member.   You can do that by clicking here.
  • A Benefactor membership is a cheap way to support the TGO community monetarily.
  • It gives you the ability to make non-commercial ads in our Trading Post forums.
  • It bypasses all of the new member restrictions.


Our Benefactor members truly have "skin in the game" and are the lifeblood of TGO.  We hope that you will consider becoming one, if not now - down the road.
