    Would it make sense to have the following protocol?
    1) Buyer and seller negotiate the terms in private;
    2) Once all of the terms are agreed upon, the seller posts them on the item thread;
    3) Once the deal is concluded, both buyer and seller make posts confirming that the terms were fulfilled, or not (and why).

    This would avoid a lot of backpedaling (on either side) when a deal goes bad.
    The terms would be posted up front for all to see, therefore it would be clear to future buyers/sellers if deals were honoured.

    Based on my experience in business, nothing cuts out the crap quite like committing agreements to paper.

    Great point!

    Yeah I'd agree on this. There should be some way to block it so that feedback can only received from a buyer-seller relationship. Maybe have it work like a notification system? Where once an item is closed the buyer is required to tag who it was sold to on here in some auxiliary system and the seller then gets a notification of this. I noticed myself I had accidentally clicked negative just through scrolling as my cursor had hovered over it.

    AFAIK members can't actually view who's given feedback to someone other than themselves and for what sale so I agree it's completely worthless as is.

    Thanks for the feedback! It's a new system so there will certainly be some hiccups that we can hopefully navigate together and improve upon. Unfortunately there is no iTrader plug-in available, so that isn't an option.

    As title says. I keep receiving feedback either by accident or from posters who have no interest in the sale. I’ve gotten both positive and negative from said parties. This feedback system is pretty useless for sales, the itrader rating worked. It’s been a year plus. Can we get it back or turn this feedback thing off.
