Hmmm, I sort of understand what you're saying.

What would you suggest as an alternative, then? I think it's a good system.
completely agree, thats how i got my negative, now i have to explain everytime i sell something.
Can you not just report unwarranted negative's to a mod to be removed (if it is clearly retaliatory it should be obvious)

cor I don't know, this is the feedback section not the debate section X)

seriously though i think ebay almost have the right idea with the buyer only being able to give negative. the main problem with that is that if a seller gives a full refund the buyer can still give negative feedback, which is a bit harsh, and the seller still can not.
i'd say only one party in a deal would normally only warrant giving negative feedback, and that would be the person that has lost the money (so the buyer, or if they have given a refund it would be the seller). of course there are exceptions to this but that could be policed here easily with not many problems on a daily basis. on ebay... not so much.

not that the mods are interested anyway, hence no reply here.
also this mod seems to encourage retaliatory negative feedback here so i'd be losing a fighting battle with any suggestions.

just feedback really, like the forum header says 8)
We didn't need to go back and investigate the merits of the feedback, however the above action was necessary to correct an injustice. We won't accept multiple ids being created, take a hit, then revert back to a clean slate.

Feedback is appropriate for both buyer and seller in general. It's an indication of how both parties feel about the trade. Some buyers may not be perfect and should never be protected by possible failures on their side of the transaction.

If a member recieves a negative, I'm pretty confident that others would look at the complete picture before deciding to trade.

Why not change your "Location" to reference a link to a comment (in this thread, for instance, or to the original "For Sale / For Trade" thread) to explain the situation?

I have done something similar in the past with eBay feedback. Instead of trying to make a concise, yet understandable, explanation of the trade in the feedback text, I just quoted a hyperlink address with a request to "view for full explanation".

Of course, any feedback system is flawed in that both sides of the transaction may wait until the other has left a comment before adding one; thus meaning that no comments are ever left. In order to “keep the peace” (in an attempt to retain a 100% positive feedback score themselves in case of retaliation) some comments may not be provided or may be “toned down” from what was really thought of the other party.

Also, feedback is not mandatory & should be seen as a favour to the other party in recognition of a trade worthy of note.

Not everybody leaves feedback. Not everybody wants or cares to leave feedback.

Looking at somebody’s feedback should not be the only background check you perform before completing a deal, of course.

Am i being unreasonable in asking for my neg to be deleted, as the neg she has left me is not factual!

This should perhaps be discussed in private between you, the other party, & the site staff.

The quoting the contents of "Private Messages" without consent of the sender is also covered here:

Note: Private Messages or PM's are 'Private' and should not be posted in the forum without the sender's consent.

I'm sure a reasonable view of all the activity & communication will result in a suitable outcome; hopefully in your favour.

Good luck.
