Yeah, first you need approval of your account (since this is trading site) and then you need a couple of posts so that your replies don't need approval outside the "introduction" forum (this is to stop spam bots and it is actually working very well).megalomaniac wrote:good to go....pfffft!!!
first post and it awaits moderator approval?
what kind of dog and pony show your guys running over there??
After that you are a full member, normally people make these 2 posts on the "introduce your self" forum and 95% of them never realise the limitation is in place.
Your reply is approved now btw
First of all , this is the rule you mention:MockyLock wrote:I am (i was...?) myself at Amibay.
For my first try to buy something, I "declared interest" in the selling thread,as it is asked.
The guy canceled the trade because i didn't answer to his mail within the... 24 hours.
Yes, you have 24 hours. We had some.. "words", a moderator came and told me that it was THE RULE. You know, the same kind of rule as Fight Club.
First rule of AmiBay : you have 24 hours.
Second rule of AmiBay : YOU HAVE 24 HOURS.
While here, it so easy to trade, people are trustful and understanding.
I have some trade here for very long time
What is so bad about that? 24hrs is reasonable time for a minimum waiting period (and it's actually up to the seller to consider these 24hrs the absolute maximum or not - 95% of the time sellers wait a couple of days before proceeding to the next in line).Acceptable response times:
You should give any interested party a reasonable opportunity to respond. AmiBay users are worldwide and span many timezones. If you have not heard from a buyer within a reasonable time, you may move on to the next-in-line. We require that you give a minimum of 24 hours between messages, however we recommend you use the AmiBay Trading Process as a guideline.
If real life got in your way and your seller did not want to wait then it's just that: life and missed chances, happens all the time.
