    Be factual, don't post personal info (i.e. John Paul Smith's address is 100 Main St....), don't start arguments, or anything that would violate the APUG Terms of Service. This is not a free-for-all with tracking numbers posted, private PM's posted for all so see, secret recorded phones calls, and otherwise other rabbit holes into Paypal nuances and whatnot....

    Do NOT use the seller's/buyer's real name, use his/her APUG handle. If his/her handle so happens to be his/her real name, then that is fine. Using the real handle will allow us to search this thread easy for folks.

    For e.g., Pretend I was writing a review of a sale I had with zsas, I would say, "Bought an M2 from zsas, it was perfect and as described and super fast ship." You would not say, "I bought a M2 from Andy Paul Smith of 100 Main Street, Chicago, IL, he was wearing a Thomas Kinkade shirt when we met (really?), his glasses were masking taped together and smelled like beef soup)....

    Interesting idea, but how are we supposed to associate the feedback provided in this thread with the individual seller? For example, in a post above, we read about seller "katie" -- but how am I, a buyer considering buying something else from katie, to access this feedback? Search on "katie" and get everything associated with that word? There are good reasons why big websites like eB*y link the feedback directly to the seller in a manner that permits a potential buyer to easily access the feedback.

    Not trying to rain on a good idea, but concerned about implementation...

    In the search function, you can specify a thread.

    We should probably try and keep general banter off this thread.

    Or even easier than using the advanced search function, open this thread, and click on the "search thread" option at the top of the thread on the right side of the screen.

    I bought 50 rolls Provia 100F outdated 2004 from alexander costa. I used it at box speed and there is no color shift at all. Well, it's super.

    I have bought a heap of stuff through the classifieds, and must admit that the dealings have been very positive all round. Sellers here are honest, knowledgeable and very easy to deal with.
    A few that I have had regular dealings with:
    Davela, lot of things, always terrific!
    Jon Goodman, great posts and honest descriptions
    Alexandre Costa, honest and very fast delivery,
    Kdemas...ditto,
    Karl K, always has interesting stuff,
    Jon Shui,
    BJ Smith 7474,
    Anton Lukoszevieze,
    and I'm sure there are others over the years....sure beats the hell out of Fleabay but doesn't help the GAS :smile:

    Oh, bought a lot of expired Verichrome Pan from Guillaume Zuilli, he seems to have a never ending supply and even the most out of date are still great.

    Well now I just want some VP lol.

    Problem is I can't find the emails of people who I've bought from because the email system isn't great haha.

    Sure hope I get a good report! :smile:
