If you are looking to alphabetize your trade list you can do what I did. Type it up in Word and there is an alphabetize option in the program.


Alright, that works. Thanks :)

Do not bump a thread unless it is off the first page. Posting in a thread to ask or respond to a question is of course fine, but do not carry off topic (i.e. non deal related) conversations in a trade thread.

I don't think some people have ever seen this before.

I have a few questions on trading etiquette:

If I send and use a DC number shouldnt the person trading to me also use a DC number?

If I sent to someone and they said they were going to send a few days ago, and still haven't sent, and they've logged in and not responded to my messages, how should I approach it?

Both parties should use DC regardless, and especially if one does it. It's a peace of mind and certainty for less than a buck. No one gets screwed over and you don't have to worry.

You should probably wait a few more days, message him again, and if nothing, contact a mod immediately (best with proof) and warn him of your concerns and negative feedback approaching.

That's what I would do at least.

But give him some time. Few more days at least.
Hope all works out man!

Thanks buddy. Is it fair of me to leave neutral feedback for someone who doesn't use DC after I shipped first with DC, in many cases I shipped the same day? It just kind of irks me that I dropped the extra 75 cents on a few items only to have them ship a day or two later and not do the same for me. More of a fairness issue than anything else.

If you two agreed on it, then he's at fault for not including the full trade as you planned. (Might need proof of a PM though) You should ask a mod or someone more experienced than me though. Like I said, wait a little bit, maybe he had something really bad come up or what not. But keep an eye on it and it probably would hurt to give a mod the heads up on this, just in case it escalates to a problem, then they'll be aware of it. But don't accuse him or leave anything quite yet, would be my advice. ;]

Alright, thanks, I don't think the DC thing is a big issue as long as they sent, I guess I'm just making a bigger deal of it than I need to.

Not really, you're being precautions and that's perfectly fine. Hell, I'd be the same. I like to know any news of stuff coming to me, especially when I did the same for them, and already gave out MY items. Being robbed or scammed is always scary, so just make sure you keep on keeping on man. :P

Make sure you keep messaging him, let a mod know, and just generally keep an eye out for things. Some people are great traders but horrible communicators. :P

I don't think the DC thing is something to do a neutral on, I made my first trade a couple weeks ago with Frosty......packaged and printed the label at work, dropped at the PO, forgot about DC because I was in a rush. He sent a day or two later with DC, I'd hate to have gotten a neutral simply because I forgot about something like that

Right.
It's no rule or anything. But if two people agree on DC specifically, the other person might have right to do what they wish for feedback. I'd say as long as you get it, the person apologizes for not getting DC as said, or in general, and tells you what's up, then it's no harm. But blindly sending it without any information and not doing as 100% agreed on is up in the air for the trader's decision. Best do as the deal said, and keep the PM for proof. Nothing should happen then.

Best to try and talk it out and give it some time before rushing and assuming.

Shit DOES happen. :P

Question: Whats the policy on charging more for paypal fees? Its illegal according to the Paypal ToS and the majority of FS forums out there ban it. I see it stated a lot around here, so is it legal on these forums?

Most of the time the prices here take into consideration the paypal fees.
If someone explicity says you pay extra for Paypal - you still know what you are paying upfront so shouldn't matter as a buyer.

Ok, so i guess you guys are saying you're just more straightforward, whereas on other sites, they just charge more to compensate for not explicitely adding paypal fees...that makes sense

this is a great site, keep up the work mods

Just posting to remind everyone to limit their bumps to two or three times per day as opposed to the six or seven I've been seeing lately. That's a bit excessive.

Right. Some people took it too far though. I don't think Casey meant for people to bump their tradelists 8 times per day. The trade board doesn't even move that fast. It's not like if you don't bump it every hour it gets pushed to page 10. A few times a day is really all that's needed.

I'm all for limiting bumps... I see a certain few trade threads way too often. Can't you (or Pooky, or somebody) just PM them and give them a friendly reminder?

I've been posting in threads lately, but I can do it in PM, yes.

Just making it clear to everyone by bumping this thread.

Whoops! >_>

Since you're forcing us to limit bumps (and I'm saying this jokingly), that actually kinda helps me by not visiting this site every hour. The unfortunate part for me is I rarely get asked questions on my topic but in PMs instead. Free bumps are hard to come by for me.

Question on freebies: What should I leave as feedback if I'm giving away a free item? Is it listed as a trade or seller/buyer (since they'll pay shipping & bubble mailer)?

If they are paying for the shipping and packing, treat it as a sale.

Hmm just wondering is stating that you made an update considered a bump? An update being that you either added or removed things.

I personally consider and Update post to be a bump as well. I usually will do my updating when I need to bump so it pretty much goes hand in hand.
