maybe because you don't have any feedback?
Have you pm'd the mod and asked?
#2
What should amount of feedback have to do with it? Reading the rules, it is there for everyone.

I have PM'ed the mod, but no reply (though only PM'ed 30 mins ago or so). Also, there are other threads where people have no feedback on the same page, plenty of posts but not a sniff from a 'mod'.

Mods don't generally trawl through posts looking for things, they act upon reports. Have you reported the other threads where you feel this grave injustice has been done? Probably not.

I did immediately after to prove a point. Nothing has been done.
#5
Its probably a combination of things - the lack of feedback in FS/FT and the number of boxsets you are selling. The mods are probably just being careful......
#6
just get the pics done and report the thread with the link to them....will be quicker than posting a rant in here
#7
someone probably reported your thread, or maybe your just unlucky as a mod was roaming and only looked at yours.
#8
The mods are generally less fussy about members who have a good trading record as the photo is a requirement, primarily to show that the goods are actually in the seller's possession, (although they are often useful as indicators of an item's condition).

If a seller such as yourself has little or no feedback, then it is usual that the moderators would want to protect unsuspecting from buying from an unknown seller, as there do seem to be a lot of unscrupulous sellers looking to dupe people on this forum.

I'm sorry, but the rules do note state that buyers with large feedback are exempt. I have nothing against this rule, just the way it is implemented.

Of course, I never received a reply to my PM to the mods, the similar posts from zero feedback members that I reported went without any similar action and no mod has posted in here which is quite bad IMO.

as already said, sounds more like the others haven't been seen rather than you being targeted.
you seem to think that every single post is read in that section when its more likely to be some samples and then reported threads.

Good to see the muppet mods have no response and haven't done anything about threads I have reported for very similar things.

I am also yet to receive any reply from the two mods I have contacted via PM about these matters.

They are hardly likely to respond if you call them things like muppets; one can only presume that your PM's were equally rude so went straight in their delete bin. And surely by going on about it you are just drawing attention to the fact that you are continuing to trade when you have clearly been told not too...

Hi blucollector.

Pics aren't mandatory unless requested by a member of the team here. There may be several reasons for requesting a photo, e.g. new member with no trading history, confirmation of items in possession, condition, high value item, thread being bumped with repeated requests, etc.

It's more than likely to assist in a sale should you provide photographic proof. Name calling doesn't look too good, however we don't hold that against you. We do try and get to the bottom of the complaint/query, so it's better to be factual if at all possible.

In addition, you should always use the report function as you'll be routed to the next available mod, rather than awaiting a response from a mod who may not be scheduled to appear for some time.

Actually, that is the first time I have resorted to name-calling. All previous PM's were not rude or arrogant and the first were generally me asking for help as to udnertsnad things better. I have finally gotten a response to some things from aScottishBloke who I thank for this, despite my latest PM and post being unnessessarily rude. I do still believe that the mods are unbelievably inconsistent. Also, I have NOT been asked not to trade. I had two threads locked, one for not posting a picture (hence the start of this thread) and one today for bumping to much because I didn't know how to reply to people using quotes without making multiple posts. So please, do not tell me what I have been told when you have no idea.

Thread in question.

...please DO NOT relist, or engage in ANY further trading until you have provided this information.

I have no idea? Its there for all to see. I would have been happy to let it lie but seeing as you want to drag it up - you've been told by a mod to not participate in any trading until you have provided a picture in the given thread, and you clearly state you hadn't had a response from a mod or provided the requested pictures, so on what grounds do you think the request not to trade had been lifted?

I HAVE provided the information to mods via PM to which I received no reply so therefore I am allowed to trade. Anyway, happy brown nosing squire. That mod post just shows the double standards and lack of any help from mods.

blucollector,

We don't monitor every submission, therefore a few do slip through the net.

As such, please ensure any future listings (for the time being), are supplied with pics in the requested format.
