This has been the WORST site i have ever joined up to i only tried to use it to sell one thing and been a member for over 2 weeks and now leaving because of ridiculous rules!
1st off i made 2 posts of the same item for which i received a 7 day posting ban for. I understand its the rules etc but seriously i bet if you asked the members on here half of them would say they did not read the rules 1st because it just didn't seem like it would be a major thing. For people who are new you should not have a 7 day ban you should have a warning at the most!

So i read the rules etc waited 7 days finally sold the item didn't know how to close so i thought at least if i put a message and changed the thread name to sold i thought i could not go wrong as i didn't know how to close it and it is clear cut indication that the item had been sold. But noo not good enough suddenly i get an infraction!!

SERIOUSLY!!!

make this forum more user friendly and understand that new people don't understand how to use the forum at first and you will gain a nice community. From what i have seen the people using it are brilliant and nothing wrong with the members just the moderators and ridiculous amount of rules for new people to follow.

Hi OP,

Sorry you feel that way, I note that we've only ever issued a warning, which in effect is really just a gentle reminder to review the rules. If you took that opportunity and still feel unclear, do give us a shout. Are we just talking about this account, I don't really see that much here that has caused so much frustration, however we're happy to discuss if wish.

I read the rules as I had to agree to the fact I had.

It just made sense to make sure I understand what I was agreeing to before listing an item for sale. I would encourage every member to do the same.

However, I do agree that the rules do need summarising as over time they have become very complication & certainly too long for a typical member to read & understand completely.

It is no surprise that one term or condition is missed (or just not read at all).


Sorry to read that you are leaving, but the rules are there to protect both sellers & buyers.

If you abide by them, & a trade does not complete to your satisfaction the Moderators will try their best to assist you.

BFN,

fp.

Again, please feel free to discuss. The 1st warning was a clear rule breach and only a warning issued. Likewise, you were given the benefit of the doubt the 2nd time and another warning issued. As above, treat these as a reminder and the mods guiding you - nothing more dramatic than that.

I like the anger and evilness.

No one is making you stay. I for one would be really happy if you never posted again.

Can I discuss mod tactics ASB?

For example, I once called another user a complete mental. I got infraction points etc. Earlier tonight I am sorry to say it was proven beyond doubt that the said user is indeed a complete mental.

Therefore those infraction points should be removed, or credits given? No?

errrm, whose fault is that then?

complain about the rules and then you'd be exactly the type of person to complain if you got scammed.

Dont like the fs/ft rules go and pay money to flog your gear on ebay

I have been infracted for no reason numerous times yet when i show these mistakes to you or anyone else for that matter, you turn a blind eye. Only one time AndyWedge got Rayman to move your incorrect infraction points.

Going to Misc, this isn't really Site Feedback, more of a moan and groan, which is fine,

It's not that difficult to use the FS/FT, the rules are there for the safety of buyers and sellers, if you can't be bothered to read or follow the rules then don't use the FS/FT, simples.
It's free to use so I don't really see what you are moaning about.
There are loads of lovely members on here, a few nutters as well, but you should give it another go, you might be pleasantly surprised.

If you slip the mods a mince pie each at christmas they tend to leave you alone for the rest of the year.

Infractions are like ASBO they are seen as badge of honours and makes you look cool on here. All the single mums flock to you wearing little more than a belt.

VB1 PM me details cheers.

You admit to just joining the site to sell stuff, which IMO isn't what this site is about. You then cry about doing something against the rules (you couldn't be bothered reading) and getting told off for it.

I agree however that sometimes moderation is heavy handed and harsh.

No great loss really - see ya.
