We will try this and see how it works. There is some rules.

1. Make sure you have tried all channels of communication before leaving negative feedback.
2. If you do leave negative feed back make sure you explain your self. Don't just say they suck and never buy from them. Be ready to explain yourself with proof.
3. Don't post about yourself or no one you have never delt with.
4. No off topic conversations.
5. Positive feedback is more than welcome.

Isnt that what the reputation button is for Jones ----Does Chilly have that feature turned off .??

i just added to your reputation Jones ---as an example but it doesnt show up on the screen --ck in you details section and see if it showed up .

underneath your post count
Someone else mentioned that before but I have yet to see it. I'll have to look around for it.

Well two thoughts...

First of all thanks for the efforts Jones it is appreciated.:D

Yes having some kind of way to rate sellers and buyers is good. :D

No matter how many posts you make a guy put up first he still has to sell to somebody that first time,,, so not sure about that one. :confused:

This thread will become very long and pretty much useless in a pretty short time anyway so personally I dont think this is the best vehicle to accomplish the task. :confused:

It needs to be specific to the individual somehow.

If I go to buy something I dont want to have to read through seven or eight pages of posts trying to find any reference to the guy.

The little scale icon may work but once again you have to start somewhere and if you have never sold anything your scale is going to tip over....:(

Secondly... in the matter of DTIMMER...:(:( as referenced above:(:(

I have been trying to complete a deal with him since early November. I sent him 135 bucks for a used C4 to BBF ultrabell. I can only blame myself for not checking on him enough or insisting on better contact info. Initially he claimed a death in the family had made him forget to send it. Then he dissappeared off the face of the earth for about 2 months. I pm'd him, mailed him a letter, I made a couple posts here looking for him, no luck.

Then when we changed to the new site his name started popping up in the on line list from time to time. I sent him another pm which he finally replied to. Said that his reasons for not sending me the bell would sound like excuses and that he wanted to make things right.

I said send me the money back and we are clear.

That was about three weeks ago now and no check???

Use your best judgement when dealing with him.

thx

I think a member's reputation statis is great to have, but I have to agree w/BossHoss it seems there should be a easier way.
I have dealt w/alot of guy's on this forum and have forgotten whom alot of them are. I will try to write down the names of those and post them.
I think if we all get our little gearbrains together we can make this idea work.:)
