It would be nice, but I know it's not going to happen...(can I rant here?)

I don't know why it bothers me so sooo much when I see people with hardly any posts and NO feedback posting stuff for sale here. What bothers me even more is when I see that someone has responded and is actually buying stuff from them. I mean I personally know better than to buy from someone with no feedback, and I choose not to buy from anyone with few posts because I like to see that the seller has a vested interest in DS, it makes me feel more comfortable that they won't just take off with my money.

I wish there was some kind of post requirement fo selling stuff, but I know it won't ever happen because it would be way too much trouble to enforce and just be a PITA for the MODS. The feedback thing sucks too because everyone had to start somewhere to get feedback, but I think most people tried to AT LEAST build up some feedback as a buyer or offer some stuff on FFS to get feedback before the expected anyone to buy from them.

IDK I guess this is just a rant but I do see a lot of new members around here that seem to be buying from people with no feedback and it makes me worried.

i worry about buying from people with little and no fb, i like to give newbies the benefit of the doubt that they wont take my money and run, but after an incident recently i will not be buying from anyone with little or no feedback and little to no posts

I know it's kinda scary but don't people have to start somewhere? I know when I first came to DS waaayyy back when I didn't have feedback anywhere and people still were willing to sell to me....I'm thankful that there were people out there that were willing to give me a chance.

Sell to you, yeah that's fine, you don't need feedback to BUY a diaper but I think you should have some to be allowed to sell.

Why do you care?

To each their own. If someone wants to buy from someone with no FB, that's their decision/risk.

The day DS decides to have a minimum requirement for someone to sell here is the day I'm outta here.

Re: It would be nice, but I know it's not going to happen...(can I rant here?)

I'm not sure how i feel about it. I was a newbie here and have been around for a while now. I don't post much as I really dont' have time to. I am a memeber on other boards, and I have 3 kids that require most of my time. (NOT SAYING THAT THOSE THAT ARE ON HERE IGNORE THEIR KIDS! POLEASE DONT" READ INTO THIS!!!)
I have some feedback, and have left some. Honestly i try to leave feedback after every purchase so I dont; forget. And same for co-ops. But sometimes I get busy and forget, and then months later get around to it. I really would hate to think that you'd have to buy your chance to sell stuff. By giving things away I mean. (FFS) The whole point of this board (or so I thought) was to buy, sell and trade diapers and cloth diapering stuff, at least that's what it was when I joined. You coudl buy or sell or trade and if someoen wanted your stuff Great! if not oh well. It wasn't like this before. If someone had told me to give some stuff away tobuild feedback then I'd have left. Seriously. I wasn't here to give things away to get people to buy from me. Even FFS has a risk. First of all you have to have something that someoen wants. I don't have much to give away that anyone would really want. SO you still need a buyer in a sense. AND there's still a risk that you pay the shipping (which cna get expensive) and the person still scams you. So either way its a gamble. I think that singling out those that want to sell but have never bought isnt' fair. And I'd really hate to see any rule of the sort enforced here. Also I dont' trust a person with a thousand ebay feedback any more than or less than I trust a mama with little or no feedback here. You have no idea who they really are, or who's feedback you are linking to unles you buy form both and see the same seller name on you statement. Ebay doesn't give out their names/addresses. You could link to any powerseller and have people trust you if you went off ebay feedback. Just my thoughts and 2 cents.

I would have a lot more fb if people would just leave it for me. I don't get it sometimes They say how happy they are and when I ask for it, the don't leave it and I'm not leaving it for them first. I did that around the holidays and even then, they didn't leave it.

Did you ever think that maybe they are not leaving it for you until you leave it for them and you are not leaving it for them until they leave it for you?
