    just a general tip i guess

    putting this in spam because i don't want to get in trouble for it but i really need to get it off my chest.

    i'd just like to put out a PSA on common courtesy, because i've been seeing it be ignored a lot and it's really irritating.

    if someone sends you a pm, respond to them. it doesn't matter if you're not interested, if you no longer have the item, or even if you just don't like the person.

    just because i'm a newbie in rank doesn't mean i don't have money to buy things from you, or i don't know how to haggle, or know how the site works, or any of the possible conspiracies you'd come up with. i've had three instances when i've been extremely interested and ready to buy, cash in hand, from someone only to have my PMs ignored for one reason or another.

    someone asks you if you have an item for sale, and you don't.
    • 'i don't have that anymore, i'm sorry'
    • 'i'm sorry'
    • 'so-and-so has some for sale'


    see how easy that is?


    someone pm's you looking to trade or buy, but they're a newbie and you don't deal with newbies.
    • 'i'm sorry, your status is a little too new for me, i don't trade with people anyone below XXXX rating. try so-and-so'
    • 'no thank you'
    • 'build up your account a little more and i can help you out'


    that's not hard at all

    someone pm's you looking to trade or buy, or has a question, and you don't like them.
    • 'i'm sorry.'
    • 'no thank you.'
    • 'try so-and-so.'


    they're short and curt, but they're a response nonetheless.

    the only person you're hurting from not answering pms is yourselves, people. every pm not replied to could be anywhere from a 1 - 300 dollar profit gone because they spent their money elsewhere.


    just some food for thought. i'm sorry if this comes off as dickish but i'm tired of people ignoring me because of my status or whatever else they come up with.

    You should just buy from me and you won't experience this ^.^


    But seriously, that's just bad business and a bit disrespectful not to respond. I hate it when I'm PMing with someone and then they suddenly stop responding, and I see their last active time is after when I sent the PM. Just respond that you aren't interested anymore, it saves us time and effort.

    It is reasonable, I make sure I try and get back to every PM I receive no matter what if I like them or not
    only time is if I go to bed or am forced off, and normally if I am forced off I get onto my Kindle Fire unless
    my internet goes out

    I agree with you 100%
    Seriously. How hard is it to reply with just a short message?
    Gosh.

    I know I do this sometimes.
    But I usually get back to the person eventually.
    Sometimes I just read something and then get distracted by other things.
    Or I read something and I don't have time/can't do something right then so I put it off for later when I do have time.

    There was a time when I was ALWAYS online or on msn and had time to do anything anytime, but my life is MUCH busier now.
    I don't consider it disrespectful not to answer right away, I guess once you get busier you will understand
    I do try my best though, I can't speak for everyone else however.

    Sometimes I have several PMs to answer to, but the 30 second limit blocks me and I get a little mad. Nevertheless, I get back to everything usually. Unless their PM was ending the conversation or something.

    I always respond unless their inbox is full. Them I usually try to post on their wall that it was full but sometimes I forget that part

    I always respond Lately i've been getting 2-3 Pms just asking on how to autobuy well and gets Much more NP.. I usually type like 5 minutes worth of information, and I do this ALL the time. Yeah it may take time, but if someone needs something just HELP them! its COMMON COURTESY to respond to people guys! Especially when it comes to business like ya'll are saying

    Honestly I'm horribly guilty of this. But I don't do it on purpose haha! I am often on clraik on my phone and can't always reply with the needed info. Or sometimes I read a PM then completely forget to respond (my attention span is very short).
    So, my apologies to all of you who I've done this too.
