    Please please do not let this degenerate into a witch hunt.

    Or an acid house rave.

    Sorry, couldn’t resist.

    This isn’t really very helpful, is it. At the moment there’s over 400 pages of classifieds dating back to the start of the year- and what, two outstanding sets of outstanding complaints, if you discount Hora’s missing envelope?

    So, what does poster A saying that they got stuff off of poster B in a timely fashion add to the situation- people tend to complain publicly if stuff doesn’t turn up eventually.

    Oh, I’ve delt with loads of people. Sales and purchases. Can’t remember most of the names though…..

    Iainc – Bought a frame for £100-ish. All good!
    SomaRich – X7 mech still going strong. All good!

    Not sure of names but I’ve never had less than good experiences on the Classifieds. It would be a real shame to allow the chancers to spoil it.

    Rather than a rating system why don’t we have a “Thread of Shame” where bad buyers / sellers can be listed. If the claims are unfounded then the mods could delete the entry. I can’t see there being too many people on there. Most folks experiences seem to be positive.

    I thought the stw owners were looking into some sort of feedback system anyway – or did I imagine it ??

    valley – good comms and quick postage – set of Hope/Mavic wheels.

    would it not be better to name and shame the baddies among us? i think most are honest folk so this thread could go on forever and if it’s going to be useable i wouldn’t want to have to trawl through pages and pages of users to see if the seller is good or not. a list of undesirables.

    Thoght it may be worth starting a positive thread re the classifieds and who is good – lets try not to make this a ‘who is bad’ thread.

    If you have had positive dealings with another member then please add their name and a brief comment abouth the transaction of you desire.

    Mods – if this is silly/annoying then please delete.

    Please please do not let this degenerate into a witch hunt.

    That IWH fella seems nice….and Lee Anderson…apparently when you buy stuff off him he tells you all his problems too…like ebay with therapy thrown in for free!

    A classifieds points system is needed….where you don’t get the points as a seller if you don’t donate a certain percentage of the sale. But a pain to administer 😥

    I’ve bought a few bits, and the experience has generally been good.

    TimDrayton; bought a frame off him; it came with extra bits I din’t even think were included in the price! Superb service, and seems like a top bloke.

    Coolhandluke11 gave me a mobile ‘phone for nowt, after mine got stolen from me. Very kind. I stuck a few quid into a guide dogs charity box for that one.

    Firestarter; bought a shock pump off him. Even though he’s a Bulb-End, he seems like a top bloke too!

    There have been a few others, whose forum names I can’t remember. People have been patient, when payment has been a bit delayed, have wrapped stuff up really well, and overall, I’ve had some real bargains.

    I think the negative experiences are always going to shouted about more than the positive, I mean, someone’s harldy likely to start a 800-post thread with ‘OMG I bought this X off X, and it’s fantastic!’, are they?

    Bought and sold quite a few bits over the years and never had a problem either way. I’ve had quite a few people send stuff out before they’ve had payment or before it’s cleared … which is nice.

    If we’re working on trust then a points or feedback system isn’t required. STW seems one of the few places left where people are still happy to trust each other and long may it continue. Someone is bound to get stung sooner or later but considering how much stuff moves about I think we do very well.

    definately NOT “endurochaz” AKA Charles Newton-Mason, of Torq team “fame”.
    He still owes me a tenner after sending me some wheels in a bin bag after fannying around for 6 weeks (I rang him with my best gangsta voice in the end).

    I’ll requesting said tenner when I see him at MM…
    Bah. Mutter. Grumble.

    ton sent me a pair of glasses for nowt once.

    I sent him a lovely thankyou card 😉

    Buying stuff off Jo Burt is always a nice experience. He sends cards and love 😉

    I’ve bought/sold loads over the last couple of years.
    No problems.
    Dont think I’ve caused anyone any headaches.
    I sent some discs to the wrong person once. 🙁

    STOP PRESS…
    sheldona included some choc eclairs (sweets…not cakes) in with some Hone cranks I once bought, that was a nice surprise.

    We’ve had thoughts along the lines of a positive feedback thread ourselves.. make it sticky in the clasifieds and allow people to include a reference to their positive feedback in their ads.. But we reckon we have a slightly more polished and technical solution that we are working on right now. Standby for more news soon.

    Cheers

    I’ve never had a bad experience buying off or selling on stw, most recently

    I’ve bought loads of bits over the years and never had any problems.

    The number of scammers I can recall on STW is in single figures. A very small percentage of the number who sell stuff on here.

    a couple of guys on here have helped me out in the past – one with some vee brake bosses (can’t remember who but he said they were free but i sent a big bag of twixes) and someone else who sent a disc rotor i think. All good guys generally.

    tomzo sold me a Nikon digital camera which has been all it was cracked up to be. His communication was excellent, as was his shipping. I would buy from him again with no hesitation.

    Over the last five years or so, I’ve had two quite slow deliveries (say 3 weeks) but other than that (that must number 100+ transactions), everyone has been great and I’ve yet to receive something that didn’t match the description.

    Bought some forks off ‘Househusband’ recently, well packaged and a pack of Haribo’s included 🙂

    Also was given some cable liner for free by a chap up in the Lakes, who i forget his name!

    Ive bought/sold/gave away various bits over the years on here, as of yet no problems.

    no problems here… been a few more but cant recall them all.

    I generally deal with those that post on the forum a bit, there does seem to be a few people who just trade bits in the classifeds without posting on anything, they make me a little more nervous to deal with.

    standouts are:-

    Scottchegg who sent me a fox travel adjuster free! Good onyer fella!

    Hugo Rune who just sold me a pair of hope hoops, nice bloke to chat to as well.
