- The STW Circle of Trust
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.Posted 8 years agoCoyoteSubscriber
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.Posted 8 years agopeachosMember
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.Posted 8 years agomarkdMember
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.Posted 8 years agoRudeBoyMember
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?Posted 8 years agos8tannormMember
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.Posted 8 years ago
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…Posted 8 years ago

I’ve bought/sold loads over the last couple of years.
Dont think I’ve caused anyone any headaches.
I sent some discs to the wrong person once. 🙁

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

Anyone who’s bought from me has had a nothing but positive experience. Including those who got FREE stuff, eh PP 🙂
I’ve never had a bad experience buying off or selling on stw, most recently
and Batfastard who sold me a lovely Handjob and disappeared without trace…Posted 8 years agoNW Alps Jeyer aka BozMember
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.Posted 8 years agotinsyMember
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.
