why so hard to follow FEEDBACK protocol?

    I'm just about tired of sellers waiting for the buyer to leave feedback first. I mean when I get paid for an item I instantly leave positive feedback. I mean there part of the transaction is over and its up to the seller to do his/her part. There's a few solid guys who think like I do but it seems most do not. Anyone tired of this yet?

    Its kind of holding the buyer hostage and I'm getting sick if it.I'm about to wait 2 weeks then start leaving neutral feedback and state why, in the event of retaliating with false feedback.

    I try to leave feedback ASAP. But there are times when I just kind of space it. I know what you are saying though I have had a few days of nothing then just left it.

    I just send them a pm asking if there was a problem with our deal. Sometimes people get busy and forget I guess.

    I don't get upset if someone I dealt with does not leave me feedback. It's not "required" that anybody leaves feedback. I mean, it's nice if they do, but I don't get upset if they don't.

    Thanks for the input for yet another crying rant lol. People do forget, it just seems its happening alot. I had issues leaving feedback myself when the web change happened. But I did inform people that's why.

    Because when you buy a toy you want to go play with it and not go back to the computer.

    I never noticed for a few weeks that a seller I dealt with forgot to leave feedback. People forget, it happens. I sent the seller a friendly PM, problem solved.

    This is assuming that you are the buyer? This is also assumigning that the seller won't right something that they wronged? Anything more than a few days, or a week max, is an indication of the sellers intentions. Right, wrong or indifferent, it is what it is and should be posted as such. Waiting 2 weeks is very honorable on your part.

    ^^^ This!

    I bought something a while ago and couldn't figure out how to leave feedback for a good seller. Would someone mind explaining how to do it?

    I don't leave feedback unless the buyer does (or requests). And then it's just a courtesy.

    Generally I don't care. It's something I don't even check when selling/buying.

    pretty much.. i buy and sell a lot of bubblegum, so it's just not a pressing thing on my mind. if i ship out 10 items to 10 different people, some from here, some not, i don't keep a running tab on who needs feedback. but i do ALWAYS respond when i get feedback- so if it's that important, leave me feedback, and you'll definitely get yours.

    Possible explanation, buyers might not want people that they don't know becoming aware of their gun transactions. :paranoid: I don't do a lot of reviews or talk about my guns for the same reason. I've left feedback before and when it wasn't returned I just let it go. As long as all of my feedback is positive why does it matter?

    BTW I might add that I recently installed a nice, big, heavy, impossible to remove gun safe.:thumbup:
