    Make a thread called "Trades with markgugs" in this subforum. If you look around you'll see lots of them.

    although I'm not sure I'm doing it right...the thread I created still isn't showing up as an option for the required field of trade thread. Do I need to put the "trades with markgugs" thread in the ISO:FT subforum?

    There people you want to add feedback for need to post in it. Tag them like this:
    Code:
    @markgugs
    Which makes: markgugs
    Derp. Though he shouldn't make a new thread, just report it and ask it to be moved.

    Question about the goandpickitupformebro. This hasn't happened to me, but I'm curious.

    What is normal etiquette when someone is nice enough to pick up some bottles for you, pack 'em nice, and send them your way (and you pay the costs), but a bottle breaks in transit? Is it on the sender to remedy this or just bad luck for you?

    Okay I'm a noob to this site and am having trouble figuring out what to do on my first completed trade on Talkbeer. Go to completed trades and hauls and post feedback there? Is there a thread that talks about this? Thanks!

    Found the thread, and I guess there are some bugs to workout.

    And yes, the feedback system is currently having a few issues that we are working to fix ASAP.

    Exactly. The first rule of beertrading.org is to never trade with someone that doesn't have an avatar.

    If the requester in a #gopickitupformebro handed me cash for the bottle I bought for him AND gave me an extra, is it acceptable for me to leave trade feedback for him (something like "great guy, paid me promptly AND gave me a new stout to try")?
