Well you've seen something that you're interested in and you've never used the bst. How do you start? How does it work? You are feeling a bit leery, is it safe?

Safety:
1. There can be some risk involved when using the bst, especially your first time. You most likely don't know the person you want to deal with and they probably don't know you.

2. There is a difference between taking a risk and gambling. If you choose to deal with someone that has a history of poor feedback or if the deal just doesn't feel right, that's gambling. Don't gamble! Choose to deal with someone that has great feedback and is super helpful, especially your first time.

3. Look at the username of the individual you want to trade with. Below the username you will see “trade count (number of people that have left feed back). Clicking the red number will open the member’s feedback. Read these carefully, especially the most recent. You can also access the member’s feedback by viewing their profile.

4. Read the members last several posts and see if the person appears to be helpful, hurtful, a troll, or just a lurker. This can help you feel more comfortable or warn you away.

5. If you have questions regarding someone’s feedback, contact the member that left the feed back via pm.

6. Your first time it is often a good idea to deal with an individual that is an established member of the community. For example: a forum expert, a moderator, someone with a great deal of feed back. These individuals have accepted a responsibility to represent the forum and/or have been here a long while and most likely won’t disappear.

Getting Started:
1.   See something you are interested in.
2.   Contact the individual via pm. Do not ask questions in the bst. Doing so bumps the thread and is a no no.
3.   Make your offer or ask your questions. Save pm’s in case there is any misunderstanding later.
4.   Since this is your first transaction you will most likely be asked to ship or pay first. This is normal if you have less feedback than the person you’re trying to deal with. This is a good time to ask for email addresses and/or telephone numbers. If you feel comfortable with everything, exchange addresses.
5.   If  you are uncomfortable with anything, anything at all step away from the deal.
6.   When you have exchange addresses the deal is considered made. Make certain that the details have been worked out before this step; not doing so can cause you to receive poor feedback.
7.   After the transaction has taken place leave the appropriate feedback. Remember to contact the member you are dealing with when you have received your item.

STICKY!!!

like he said, someones posts can tell you a lot about who someone is, and if they should be trusted.
Even though i have much more feedback than skirtz, based on his posts and his activeness i would have no worries if we shipped at the same time.

That and some of those that asked for it to be stickied will experience uncontrollable hair and nail growth on their feet, causing the foot to take on a sasquatch foot appearance. Some have also experienced exaggerated nose and armpit hair growth as well with a few exhibiting tufts of hair from the center of the ear canal.

It's really not something you want to mess with. Grin
