Default Is there a "Deal Experience" web page?

I have been into watch collecting for awhile. There are a ton of watches for sale on the forums but we are not always certain of a particular seller. As such, most watch forums will post a "good guy" section or "deal watch" regarding their experience with a particular seller. I find it to be very useful.

Is there such a thing for baseball card collectors? As I get deeper into the collecting, I would find it vital.

Thanks.

Not that I'm aware of. You can always ask for hobby references and see if they know anyone you do.

Here's one for the main modern collecting community. A bunch of guys there also post their eBay accounts to put on blocked bidder listings because they're headaches to deal with.

I like the idea of a "good guy" list. We so often focus on the negative, a list of positive names would be cool.

Let's start it:

I suggest minimum of 5? positive references on Net 54 puts you on the list - every negative reference leaves you -5?

Could we add a forum to this site? That would an awesome addition. It may attract more members as they "google" search sellers and it leads them here.

Yelp seems to have difficulties managing malicious reviews. Who would carry the torch for Net54?

If you have had a positive experience with someone on BST, asking them for a reference via PM seems to work.

Negative referrals on a public forum is opening a can of worms and probably not in the forum’s best interest.

Just my two cents and where is my change?

The other problem with that sort of list is that the whole "good guy" / "not so good guy" thing is really subjective.

One of the few ebay sellers I had a problem with is almost universally held out as one of the "good guys" And since he's been around a long time, very well might be. My experience was very substandard, and I'm pretty lax about most stuff. Like don't ship for a few days, or pack something in a way that's ok but not great or annoying... I'm fine with that. (Wiped out misleading scans, undisclosed trimming and damage and being unresponsive not so much. )

So who would categorize the seller? Me, or the majority of people who've bought from him at shows etc over the years?

Similarly, I don't read someone's positive feedback on Ebay. I do read the neutral and negative feedback. And try to get a feel for whether it's reasonable. Someone leaving a negative who has low double digits, and complains about something being bought Friday night late and not shipped till Monday and not having arrived across the country by Wednesday - I ignore those. The same for people complaining about problems that are obvious in the scans or clearly stated in the description.
I had one of those, sewing kit, but incomplete, missing the thread, but having the cloth and pattern. Clearly stated the thread was not included, as well as having the word "incomplete" in the title. Negative - "Not complete, thread not included"

I was thinking the same exact thing. In addition, there are two sides to every story. Some buyers are overly sensitive and can be annoyed by the slightest “infraction”. I’d hate to have my name on a “do not deal with” or “beware of this seller” list. I bet everyone reading this has dealt with unreasonable buyers. 99% are rational, but it only takes one idiot to drag your good name through the mud.

Precisely why I was suggesting an offset .........or just leave it all positive - only the positives get posted - a "good guy" list as previously suggested - obviously the more good ratings someone has, the greater likelihood for a positive experience - no need for the negatives??
