    [QUOTE=mtv;426167]Unfortunately, there will always be dodgy sellers, no matter where you buy, especially on forums and ebay.

    Dodgy sellers are dealt with by Paypal on Ebay which provides protection for buyers

    As I have stated previously I would use Paypal for any purchases from sellers whose bonafides I was not completely aware of.

    No no no no no, well yes yes yes.

    Correct me if I'm wrong but what does Austech stand for, Australian Technology
    or Australia's buy and sell, Sanity please answer this question?

    There are some ads for sale on this forum that don't fit into their right full position and no disrespect to those concerned that should be in the BST section.

    I have a question.... WHO monitors the iTRADER feedback?

    QUOTE.....Also , take note , use of the iTRADER system is a condition of use in the BST forum. If you dont leave feedback as you should you may find yourself with no access to the BST forum. Ignorance of the rules is NOT an excuse for breaking them. Should we think you need a refresher ( even though everyone agreed to them about 2 weeks ago ) we will reset your rules status requiring you to re-read them.

    I bought an item months ago and still haven't received a rating......

    A friendly PM to the member involved should rectify that.

    Well OK but you still haven't answered my question, is it a case of some rules for some and other rules for others, please clarify this as it is important that we all know.

    If Austech stood for something it would be something with 7 words. Needless to say, it doesnt stand for anything.

    Also needless to say I would think, if you see something in the wrong place report the post.

    Admin, I thought I had made a point, but apparently not. Leyroy I'm only stating the facts, sorry if that offends you it's not intended to.

    Default Sellers and buyers take note

    Thanks I under stand the rules but have never seen an infraction against someone's name. The other thing that I have a gripe about is the feedback rule. We are all meant to give the correct rating but no one monitors this. Rule says you must leave feedback. But I have to police this rule. No mods should they made the rule.

    Svenok, the way I see it, is the feedback system is kind of self monitoring/moderated. Example: I sell you something, it's a bad product and you get ripped, you leave bad feedback under my name. I go to sell something later, different member looks at my feedback, sees bad sale from me, contacts you to ask about what happened, you explain, other member decides to give me a miss because I sold a bad product. I may not now sell that item, because anyone interested has read my bad feedback and contacted you to inquire. Feedback working.
    Same the other way. I buy something from you and you never deliver but take my money, I can leave the neg feedback and others can ask me about it.
    If everything went well and I was just nasty because I don't like how you spell your username, and leave bad feedback, then you can report it to a Mod, explain that aa23 has gone nuts for leaving bad feedback when nothing was bad at all, Mods may instantly believe you because I've had 4 negs in a row, or contact me to get my side of the story, and if I was just a nasty pastie, they can edit the feedback to correct it.

    The only time it doesn't work, is if you and I buy/sell something and don't leave any feedback. Yes, it's neutral, but then I make a post saying I've sold heaps here, so safe to buy from me, but I only have 5 feedbacks.
    That's my "I've been up all night at work and just got home and I'm tired whilst typing" quick, summarized reply of how I think the BST feedback sort of looks after itself and doesn't need monitoring by Staff.

    aa23, thankyou for this very detailed post. I understand how the system is meant to work. Hence my feedback of 100%. I give feedback to the seller/buyer they to ARE meant to reply with feedback. I receive a notification that barry glumm has left a comment on my Itrader page, + of course, which fills me with love joy peace and goodwill to all. This automatic message that pops up should remind the sellers / buyers to check to see if they have carried out the iTrader feedback rule too.
    The system is near on bullet proof, its the human side that fails.
    1. People are busy
    2. People have multiple items for sale and lose track of who they have left feedback for.
    3. People can become complacent and think it's not all that important.

    It's ok.

    There are bigger issues besides me not receiving the feedback I thought I deserved by following the correct rules. (653)

    Ok, so you are going to pay for all the new staff required to go through every single persons sales to make sure everyone is compliant. Unbelievable. I will start on the 10,000 plus threads now shall I ? This isnt a multi billion dollar enterprise like ebay.

    If you dont get feedback from someone, send them a PM and ask them to leave it. How hard is that ? Then if they wont let us know.
