At long last, today we are introducing a trader feedback system for TalkBeer.com!

Please read all six of these bullet points. They will answer 99% of your questions.


The details:
  • Every piece of feedback is tied to a trade thread. In order to leave feedback, one person must have started the thread, and the other person must have replied to the thread.
  • For trades that took place in the past, off-site, or in private conversations, you can make a thread describing the trade (and preferably with a photo of your haul) in the new Completed Trades & Hauls forum. Once the trading partner has replied to that thread, you can leave feedback for each other!
  • Feedback activity and stats can be viewed by clicking the Feedback tab.
  • There are time limits on how often you can leave feedback in general and for the same user, to prevent abuse. We can adjust these as necessary.
  • The bad trader list is still important, because it tracks aliases, real names, and past identities of bad traders that may be operating incognito. Always check your trading partner's info against ALL available sources of info before you ship.
  • Feedback can be reported if there is an issue (accidental feedback, errors, changed minds or reporting suspected abuse of the system).

If you have any questions or issues, please post in the Trader Feedback thread in the Questions/Comments/Bugs forum.

I will only say this once:

Reputation is the most sacred element of the beer trading community.
Bogus feedback or ANY other abuse will result in a permanent ban.


Please don't be afraid to report feedback if you suspect it is not legitimate!

I'll update this post with FAQ's as they get asked and answered.
  • Feedback for a BIF can only be given to (and from) the BIF organizer since one person needs to have started the trade thread. Running a great BIF is a lot of hard work, and now it's also a great way to get a lot of good feedback! This also means that the BIF organizer will be responsible for filing good or bad feedback on the accounts of all participants.
  • Feel free to catch up on your trade history by making one comprehensive "past trades with me" thread. Make one post in that thread for each trade, tag the other trader, and invite them to reply so you can leave feedback for each other. (Here's an example.)
  • You can set your notification preferences for new feedback on this page.
