Default Possible "POSITIVE FEEDBACK" Sticky Thread???

There's been a lot of 'Friction' lately due to some incidences regarding the buy/sell forums; some Skate Log members geting 'shafted' in regards to not getting their product, some (out of their frustrations) breaking forum 'Buy/Sell' rules by publicly posting they're frustrations, etc, etc. Blaze' Blah

Kathie has a big responsibility in just simply owning and operating this site. I highly doubt that she wants to be inundated with having to sort through the stressful-ness and Drama of said possible incidences.

SOOO, I have an idea (and maybe it's been touched on before... but...here goes):

What about if we just have a 'sticky thread' titled "POSITIVE SALE FEEDBACK" with instructions that say that the thread is to post positive sale experiences ONLY between loggers here on SLF. Meaning, that there would be NO NEGATIVE posts ALLOWED in the thread. The thread would strictly be to post positive feedback from sales experiences out of the buy/sell forums. This way any member(potential 'buyer') can go to the search function and type in the 'sellers' name and if there's any positive feedback attached to that 'seller', then it'll show a post or posts in the POSITIVE SALE FEEDBACK thread.

That way if any member who is thinking of buying something from another member has any questions whether the seller is 'trust worthy, timely, etc, etc, then they'll be able to find that info in this new sticky Thread.

So I've created a poll; 'for' or 'against' this type of sticky thread here on SLF. Though I can't imagine anyone who wouldn't want this, unless it was someone thinking of not doing something right. Let's see what the outcome is Just trying to help

P.S. - it would be the responsibility of the buyer to post positive feedback for the seller, and visa versa

Did you run this by Kathie first? Seems to me this would have been a prudent first move. I doubt any mod would make it a sticky unless Kathie approves of the idea.

I guess people just don't read rules or the 50 other threads about the same thing.

Ya know what, it's really not even worth responding to that... I erased what I initially wrote; I'm bigger than that and nicer person than that..

Have a nice day

So what? I didn't find it when I looked... BIG deal. So you see another one(poll)... what's the point of being a smart @55 about it? If you have nothing nice to say, don't say anything, that's all I'm sayin.

Just wake up and realise that none of this was a problem until a few newbs tried to use SLF as an alternative fleabay.
I still don't get how you lot don't understand this?
Let it go, Don't buy and don't sell, and shut the hell up.
Some of us want to keep the buy/sell forums, but you newbs are gunning hard to get them removed.
Nothing personal, but if you don't understand what has been said, then it would be best if you didn't comment on it.
I personally think the admins should just delete every idiots account who try's to find a new way to solve a problem that doesn't exist.

+10000

I've been a forum member for going on four years now. I've bought and sold countless skate swag and made some lifelong friends along the way. I buy what I want and sell what I don't use or outgrow. Pure and simple. No feedback needed. If you screwed me over on a deal, I considered it a lesson learned, mark that person down to avoid in the future and moved on. We've had a few "upstanding" members who disappeared and left people hanging. But no matter what, the forum has survived this long without feedback. You want some feedback on a seller? Ask a veteran forum member or another member who has done business with them. Live by the old rule, "if a deal sounds too good to be true, it probably is". Too many newbies who found gold in the closest find this place through a Google search and join to pawn their stuff never to be heard from again. Those people I can deal with as they don't stick around long. It's the people who buy everything they can find and then try to supplement their income by "flipping" it here that drives me nuts. If anything, there should be a limit on how many "For Sale" ads you can have going at the sametime.

No offense intended Swish. You seem to be a contributing member of this forum which usual means good things. I would suggest that you enjoy the knowledge, resources, and goods the forum has to offer and leave the moderating to the originator of this website. Like any big family, we do get restless sometimes and commence to fighting a little to blow off steam. But we also unite to protect this forum tooth and nail against any perceived threat as we consider it invaluable when it comes to feeding our old school passion. Most of us mean no harm, and those that do and can't follow some very simple rules usually find their own way out.
