Quoted from TheSaint025:
Quick question, why is it that sellers ignore new members? is there something that I’m missing? I joined Pinside as a new member, I verified my address and even donated to the site... looking to connect with sellers for a few pins that I am looking for, I have cash in hand, I am able to arrange shipping but have sent messages to 5 sellers and no response.... most post have been listed in the past few days, JERZYROB posted a Metallica pin and I was very interested! Now has me blocked? Am I doing something wrong? Any advice would be appreciated..
TheSaint025 Sent you a PM. I kind of felt the way you did originally and made a similar post on here about 6 months ago. I received a ton of great information, some of which I passed on to you. Much of it was from the same helpful individuals who have also responded to you here. But as a relatively new owner (who felt like you probably do now) my best advice is to not get discouraged. I think it took me 7 or 8 tries before I found someone that was willing to work with me. I took the advice I received and applied it as I kept trying to make deals. Not too long ago I started a thread similar to yours and now I have 4 to play every day!
Good luck and looking forward to seeing your photo when you get your first!
