Welcome to the community, @Whitesoles, and thanks for all this feedback!
I totally agree - there are definitely some improvements we can make to the "Ask" and "Make Offer" buttons you see. Personally, I'd like to see a "Call" button listed there so I can easily get more info on the item/location.
Good point @Whitesoles. It's even happened to me, being too quick trying to save something and accidently sending the aleart to the seller. I always follow up immediately though to clarify my mistake. I know that's not usually the case though. Thanks for sharing that idea....I agree with you.
