Not getting feedback left when you leave feedback.....

Post by Troll » Mon Apr 29, 2019 12:46 pm

Am I the only one who thinks it’s annoying when you leave good feedback for someone and even after you message them,you see they read your message about asking for them to leave feedback but they still don’t?

Maybe I am too deep in thinking that but that is just annoying on here. Especially when you see that they read the message asking to get some return feedback.


Wow what an exciting topic!!! Go me!! Hahaha

Put it into your trading terms. Then, if they don't, you hit 'em with a BTR!

WHA HA HA HA HA

No but seriously - Feedback is not mandatory or regulated by the rules. I probably have easily over 50 trades that the trader never left me feedback (which, if you compare to my current feedback score, is actually MORE than the trades recorded!). Unless you put it into you trading terms, there really isn't much you can do about it.

Is it annoying? Oh yeah - especially since Bartertown works on its feedback system.

I understand forgetting .....I know not a great reason... but when reminded then and you read the message and then just don't leave the feedback lol

I mean cmon like already stated this site is based on feed back

And I know I would have many more good feedbacks if people would leave them for me.. and by all means if I owe you one just remind me and I will leave it..

Yeah I've come across a few traders who just don't leave feedback. They have feedback in the hundreds (like high hundreds) but just don't leave feedback. I just don't understand why they don't want to help promote the community - but, there really isn't much we can do about it.

That's why I suggest putting it into your trading terms. Having it a part of your deal, ensures that they have to leave something. Might not matter to higher rating members, but those just starting off will find it could be beneficial.

Yeah that’s a real good idea making it a requirement to get a good feedback you have to leave a good feedback

I mean if it’s in the agreement it’s a valid point for getting good or bad or maybe a neutral feedback


And yes I have seen people as well in the hundreds that just have a hard time typing a few words to leave one but can hound you if you don’t immediately respond to their trade request haha

I've said it repeatedly... put it in your trading terms.
"When the trade is completed as promised, we will exchange positive references."

If you leave someone a reference, then complain to me about it, it'll fall on sympathetic but otherwise deaf ears. As has been said before, it's not and never will be a rule. BUT.... things put in your trade agreement are enforceable.

If you put it in your agreement, then leave a ref that is not reciprocated, you can PM an Admin about it. If you PM me, I *will* remove that person's reference. I think it's a d*ck move for you to turn around and leave them a negative (and I don't recommend it - even if you ARE technically allowed to), but I'm all in favor of replacing the positive with the neutral.

But, for God's sake... first, give the person a couple reminders and at least one warning that you're going to have your positive reference rescinded if they don't follow up with their end of the deal.

I do send reminders and they show read and then never anything done about them. I always enjoy when someone can’t take a few minutes and leave a feed back (sarcasm)

I mean it for now on I’m going to leave that in all my trades that references have to be left

Yeah, the reading it part in annoying... if it is more than once then even worse. I would wonder if they were old time eBayers...

There was a time when you could sort of be post negotion (transaction really) negotiated by feedback (was never supposed to be that way, but it was)... as long as they didn't actually say they were going to neg you if you didn't do X then the buyer could get away with that tactic.

As a seller (during that dark period), I would never give feedback to anyone until I had received feedback (so they couldn't use the above tactic)... I had to view it as part of the transaction and the official end... and I couldn't give them a positive until they did the same (for fear of being coerced into returning partial fees or something)...

I didn't want to have to do that, but thrice burned once shy...

You should do exactly as stated and put it as part of the deal... and get MM to help... eBay is a big emotionless system (even to this day)... MM is a person and has a morality/ethic... and will think about it vs just react via a judgement neutral system.

I handle it here same as I do on Ebay. If you got a higher rating; I post 1st. If not, then I don't post feedback or a ref until you do.
Then about a month later, I leave the ref; especially as a seller: "I guess all arrived ok, since I haven't received and feedback or messages".
Heh, I was called a Grognard. ;-)

After 200 or so I gave up on getting feedback and as a result stopped giving it. Now as soon as both sides are happy (always check that) I let my trade partner know if they want to trade feedback I'll be happy to reply to theirs and otherwise thanks for a great transaction. It's worked.. about 80ish % of the time.
If we're trading: Lower ships first, even if its me.
If I'm buying: If you have a REASONABLE (>20) rating with no negatives, I'm paying first.
If I'm selling: You're paying first.
I always check Ebay before making/accepting offers. You should to. Fair market value >>>> "I feel they are worth X"

Offers good for 24hrs.

Well, well, well. If it isn't the consequences of my own actions.
