SHARING YOUR EXPERIENCE:

It can benefit the community to alert fellow members of an unscrupulous trader, but such warnings can quickly devolve into a witch hunt. For this reason, only the bare, non-pejorative facts may be stated.”

You heard him only the facts!

@-Andy-

I have to agree with @TyBoy on this. 

 

Edit: I also agree with Tim's comment

I would suggest that before you post, ... just ask the person/s you traded with if it is OK to post a positive experience with them.  :) 

Obviously, please make sure to respect the trader's wishes if they decline, for whatever reason. 

That makes it a non-issue.  ;) 

 

I can't imagine too many folks would be upset about a positive review.  :headscratch:

I'm afraid if we allow members to post negative comments about other members we would be opening up a Pandora's box of problems.

You are correct, Don, which is why there will not be ANY negative comments published.

I've highlighted what UFH had already written in the first post.  ;)

Thanks for the clarification John and Tim. This is something that should be monitored, just to make sure.

Both @-Andy- and @Troodon are friends of mine that I have had nothing but positive experiences with also!

@-Andy-

 

Nope, they didn't say if they were open to being identified, but they didn't seem secretive about it either. I avoided members who've specifically told me to keep our trades a secret.

 

So far I haven't received any PMs telling me to take anything down.

 

It is wearisome for me to individually message every person I identified and wait for a reply I might not get, especially since I haven't spoken to some in years. Should I just remove the names of those people?

Yes In my opinion they should be removed unless you have a positive acknowledgement that they are okay with it.  IMO  private deals should remain private.

I will go on record to state my experiences trading with Mr. John Brewer have been nothing but good times and great fossils.

The best thing about inner Forum trades with other members is not only the opportunity to obtain fossils that are not normally found at your fossil shows or online sales, but to receive items that usually the sender found and has personal sentimental value attached to them as well.

You might even get a small taste of their personality quirks to boot.

I’ve traded with many on the forum and it’s been positive with all. One person I've traded with many times and would like highlight is Doren @caldigger  It’s always been a pleasure to exchange with him. 

I can second this I have done a few blind trades with Doren and received some really interesting and also generous amount fossils.  He definitely gave my mammal collection a boost and stated my collection of shark teeth off too.

I think this is a very good thread. I have traded with numerous forum members and all of my experiences have been positive. I do believe that I can honestly say that all of my interactions with members have been positive since I have joined. From trading with members, buying from members, meeting up for fossilhunts, or just chatting through PM.
