Rant
If you cant check dont sell

It troubles me when a person puts things up for sale and then does not take the 5 minutes day to check there thread or PM's
Mean while your left hanging wonder if its still for sale or do you move on
"But I really like that plane and a super price and cant seem to fine that plane any more" (you think to yourself)

I would learn to be more patient especially if you don't have a I trader rating yet. Possible sellers might see this and might make the assumption that you are an impatient buyer. Some sellers are reluctant to do business with someone who just joined. They usually check your posts, this post might tell them to stay away.

The seller might be on the road, or on a 12 hour shift, or might even have an emergency...patience goes a long way.

..i agree 1 week is too long, sometimes they do forget to close the thread too. I get all happy that the deal is still there and get no reply.


Just keep trying, they have the best RC deals here. That's why i joined. GL in you future transactions.

I'll admit I spent very little time but I looked through your posts to try to figure out which post you are talking about. I didn't win but I did notice that a couple of posts you made were to very old threads. It could very well be that you asked about an item for a seller that is long gone.

Can you llink which thread you are talking about?

Yeah, like I said I had no reason to believe that you were on anyones "list" it was just something that hit me while I was reading, and I thought it was kinda funny.

Seriously though, whenever I PM someone and they dont have the courtesy to return a PM I look at it as a blessing in disguise and move on. I mean if they cant be bothered to respond, what is it going to be like trying to get them to mail something to me in a timely manner?

I try to make a point of closing a sale thread, part of the deal... I also specify in every sale post that the only way to contact me is by a P.M. as I don't normally go back and read my ads. What is amazing though is when I do scan back are all the "I want it" post, posted after they just read that I can only be reached by P.M. zeezee/dave

Posting "PMsent" is a mixed blessing...It indicates interest,but in the case of my present ad for an engine,it took a while to decide the buyer didn't want to pay shipping on a trade.-Don't blame him-it was a lot,from North of the Border.
It's back and delete,so as not to crowd the thread.
There's another pm sent,but not into my mailbox apparently.So I pm'd him that it wasn't there,and got nothing so far..

YOU THINK THIS IS EASY? sigh

when I have something listed I make sure to check in a couple times a day. I also understand that possible emergencies can take time, mainly because I had a family emergency last year that had me flying halfway around the world within two hours of waking up to bad news. I was gone for 9 days and any communication other than updating family still in the states and keeping my work in the loop was put on hold.

who knows why they haven't communicated yet, especially if they want to sell the plane.

It's back to the COMMUNICATION issue. Just post in the ad that you may not get back to people right away...for whatever reason. Good communication avoids a lot of problems.
