    I would just like to say to anyone who has things for sale.

    If someone sends the cash to you through Paypal, etc, then you should post the product as soon as possible, not 2 weeks later.

    Communicate.

    If you cant get to the post office, say so.

    If you fail to contact the buyer after 2 weeks when you havent even sent it, expect a harsh message.

    If this happens to me again, i will demand a refund, and you can send money back through Paypal.

    Unbelieveable.

    Definitely justified as being outside the feedback thread, I reckon. Also, who doesn't swing by a post office in TWO WEEKS? That's just lazy procrastination.

    Feedback is when you give opinion of something that has happened before. Negative or Positive? I would like to know who this person is.

    I think everyone needs to be aware so we can avoid these problems in the future. Littlebro is not the only one that uses the trading forums. Why should he be the only one that finds out who it was?

    Matt makes a good point. Like many people here who I've traded with, I have tried hard to establish a good reputation as a buyer and a seller. Unfortunately there will be f-tards who don't know any better than ruin the trading part of this hobby. They need to be warned, if not banned outright

    you don't understand how much this has happened to me. I thought i was the only person who was so unlucky by picking these people. it's appauling. 2 months ago i bought a couple clips from Bolt Action and have not recieved and I have been sending him PM's for ages and no response. I at least want a refund if i'm not going to receive my products.

    Only if you ask for it within 40 days, IIRC.

    Mate, that's pretty appalling. I feel bad enough for just recommending a product to you, that didn't perform as expected. To delay postage that long is inexcusable.

    I bought some blaster's from LB and Phuong a few months ago, and they had difficulty getting to the post-office due to Uni commitments etc, and had issues finding suitable packaging. BUT, they kept in contact with me regularly, and there was no issues at all.

    The trader's thread is for positive and negative feedback...

    People definitely need to sort their shit out! I'm in the middle of a pretty prolonged purchase, but like Clunk said, he's kept in contact. He was sick and then the parcel he sent me went missing, but still let me know what was going on, never left waiting for more than a few days. Two months is absolutely appalling. I post my sales out next possible chance I get and always let the seller know when it will/has been shipped.

    Just want to point out that I'm not the seller being referred to.

    These sort of things have a tendency to harm people's reputations.

    Yeah Clunk is referring to the silicone lube he recommended i try.

    Hey btw, i didnt mention it before, but i picked up another tube of silicone oil, and it works brilliant.
    I only applied it an hour ago. But will see how it goes tomorrow, and hopefully it doesnt dry up.

    If it stays good, i'll post a pic.

    Yeh, that was more directed at Cody's post.

    That's good to hear, hope it works for you.

    I'm currently using some silicon grease from nextorch.com. Pretty good stuff, but small jars.

    Ah ok no worries.

    The stuff i got was only $2.50 a tube and very slippery. Plunger had no restrictions at all.

    If this stuff stays good, you will want this.

    Hey everyone,

    If you have a trading issue with anyone send me a PM. I think if it takes more then a week and you haven't heard anything at all send me a PM and I can chase it up.

    If you have any negative trade issues that are not resolved I will post them in the feedback thread to warn other members. It's the point of that thread. People should be fearful of losing their reputaion.

    If people like I can write up a more solod set of trading rules to be followed.

    It's probably a good idea, but shouldn't really be necessary. It's not a difficult concept.

    "Don't try to rip people off, and be prompt with payment/posting. Above all else, communication is essential..."

    That's not a shot at you either Psykka, I think your thread is a brilliant idea. You just shouldn't have to spoon-feed people all the time.

    I know I shouldn't have to but it does give more solid guide lines for people to know when to make a complaint.

    Also taking money for something and never sending it is theft.

    Damn Waffle, you gotta eat!

    I cant talk, when i was doing up my car afew years ago, i bought more parts than food. I starved for that car.

    Well that lube i mentioned is still good, and showing no signs of drying.

    But lets just say, this lube you cant buy at hardwares stores...
