ExclamationPlease use iTrader for all trades - even bad ones


It's been brought to my attention that some members here have had trades where they were unsatisfied/disappointed and elected not to post a neutral or negative iTrader rating because they felt that the person with whom they had traded was a more active and "well-liked" member.

No one here is more important than anyone else. This isn't a popularity contest!

If you are unhappy with a trade, you should say so(via iTrader). Otherwise, how is anyone to know you were dissatisfied? Being honest doesn't make you a bad person.

No one is perfect and even folks who have a long history of good trades (many positive iTrader ratings) can slip up once in a while. Negative feedback helps everyone - especially the one receiving the feedback - know that expectations were not met. Either expectations were set too high, or the member didn't follow through as promised.

~~~

Negative ratings can be updated/edited to positive when shortcomings are addressed (within 30 days of the posting date - trades rectified after this point require mod/admin intervention to fix). If they are not addressed, it serves warning to others. Don't be afraid to post a negative rating if you are unsatisfied. The system won't work if everyone is afraid to use it properly.

~~~


This is a laissez faire medium. This site has no trade mediators.

iTrader is your tool to facilitate honesty and integrity in trades. It's not perfect, but it's the best tool we have at our disposal.

I am reposting this (originally posted by the founder of PlantSwap), as it seems timely, just now.

All of us who trade at this site really do appreciate other members who take the time to file feedback - good or bad.

There is a great thread explaining how - here: How to leave an iTrade rating -a quick reference guide -
