just received a befriend request from an unfamiliar member (? ?). checked member list but member was not listed. also, no posts from this member at time of inquiry. doesn't seem to be legit but at the same time I don't want to ignore a fellow member. anyone else having this experience?

A person who has never posted does not show up in a community search. From the friend request you should be able to see the profile and decide. I believe that sometimes people think friending enables private message with you. It doesn’t. As far as I can tell friending is just a social gesture and doesn’t change anything else.

If you have a concern about this person pm me

just found a 3/18 post in the for sale section from the new member. seems the member listing simply has not caught up. all is well. thanks

I don’t think those posts show in the post count ( the posts in the other section do not either). Maybe those that post only there don’t make the member list either. Thanks for the information
