Feedback rules


Recommended Posts

Psynews’ "Buyer/Seller Feedback" subforum exists for members to provide feedback after buying something from or selling something to another Psynews member. Here are a few guidelines and tips:


1. Use it !! If you have a transaction with a fellow member, leave feedback for them! The more feedback exists, the better the resource the Feedback forum will be for other buyers/sellers, so buyers/ sellers who were hesitating to do business will step in and this will attract more transactions which in turn get more feedbacks which will attract more buyers/sellers and so on.



2. Do not be afraid of posting negative comments if you truly had a negative experience. The Feedback forum is not very helpful if it only provides positive feedback. (That said, negative feedback should be based ONLY on a negative transaction, not personal grudges.) Also do NOT use the feedback forum if you haven’t actually made a transaction. This is certainly not the place to settle personal grudges so misuse of this subforum will result in deleting the post and even to a permanent ban!



3. VERY IMPORTANT!! BEFORE creating a NEW feedback thread for a member or vendor, please make sure that an existing thread for that member or vendor does not already exist. This section is ordered alphabetically so you should be able to find the user pretty easily. Another way to do this is to use the "search" function, searching for the username in the title only, and limiting the search to the Buyer/Seller Feedback forum.

If the person or vendor already has an existing thread, please add your comments there. If you need to start a new thread, please use the member's username as the thread title. Make sure you spell the username correctly so that your thread will show up in searches. If you started a new thread and made a typo, you can use the "Edit" button on the bottom toolbar of your post to reedit it. Don't hesitate to do so... And don't ask a mod to do it, you can do it yourself :)


4. Little add-on: although the Buy/ sell forum is only for personal use (no commercial links) I see nothing wrong with reviewing you favorite online (or offline...) psytrance shop. Simply start the thread with "SHOP" to let users make the difference between the 2. So for example if I write a review of psyshop I'll write in my topic title "SHOP: Psyshop".


5. Like the Reviews section, I have ordered posts alphabetically for more ease of use. This means that threads aren't bumpable anymore so don't be surprised if you just made a new thread and it doesn't show up on top. Just look for it in alphabetical order and it will be there.


5. Obviously you can’t give yourself feedback, an actual transaction has to be made…


6. Please limit comments to your personal transaction experiences -- the Feedback forum is not a discussion forum. If your experience was negative, try to explain exactly what happened on a factual basis -- you may be upset, but don't flame. If the buyer/seller is someone to avoid dealing with in the future, your explanation of exactly what happened should be enough to inform others.



7. If you disagree with a negative comment written about you, it is YOUR responsibility to contact the person who posted it and resolve the situation; you can ask the person to edit their negative post. A moderator can NOT step in and edit/ remove a negative feedback unless there are clear signs of abuse (ie. new user registers just to give negative feedbacks, signs that no actual transaction took place, etc.)
