Why I was denied/revoked and how do I contact my admin?

Each community is moderated by a team of admins that determine the guidelines for membership to that specific community. There are three main reasons why you might be denied:

  • Your location is missing or incorrect. If this is the case, please change your location and contact your admin. 
  • Your location is too far. If this is the case, please look for a community closer to your location. 
  • Your account doesn't meet other membership criteria for the community. 

Membership into a community may be revoked when a member hasn't followed the community guidelines or if a member no longer meets the community membership criteria, such as requirements regarding location or account settings. If you don't remember receiving a message regarding being denied or revoked, you can get in touch with your community admin to discuss further.

Please keep in mind, VarageSale just offers a platform and technical assistance.  Membership criteria is up to the admin team of a community.

To find out why you were denied or revoked or to contact an admin, follow the steps for your platform.
