    I know everyone wants to be a nice as possible on BYC. I also think that we should see a clearer picture of the breeders/sellers and how they rate.

    There are alot of complaints about how eggs are packaged, eggs never recieved but paid for,sellers refusing to respond to PM or email, etc.

    I think it's only fair to see both sides of the picture. I have dealt with someone that did a poor job of packing and only after posting about it did I then recieve 3 PM's from members had the same experience with this same seller.

    Clearly I would have liked to have been better informed before my purchase.

    I believe that sellers would strive to do a better job if they knew someone would give negative feedback.

    I don't mean being rude or mean but being able to state the facts of their experience so other members could make a more informed choice when making a purchase or trade.

    IM sure the mods will say no as it could start problems but it also creates problems when members are dissappointed by a bad experience.

    Sounds like a good idea to me! I have only ever delt with a couple of BYC'ers and all have been awesome. I think though there should be a place so if someone is going to buy or sell to someone to have a place to go HERE to check out how its been with other BYC'ers that have delt with a person it would make one feel better about spending their hard earned money to not get cheated. I think its a great idea!

    Like have a link on the sides by our names like it does our profile and Pms and stuff have a feedback link on there so people can go there and leave feed back and check it!

    I beleve a thread like that would be considered flaming. There is a risk when buying eggs to be shipped, and it is the buyer's responsibility to check with the seller on how they package their eggs.

    I'm sorry that you had eggs shipped poorly, but a thread like that would most likely be closed before it even had one negative response. [​IMG]

    I think this ideal will work

    (Like have a link on the sides by our names like it does our profile and Pms and stuff have a feedback link on there so people can go there and leave feed back and check it!)

    No flamming no arguing, just like it would be on ebay or eggbid.

    Quote:Something like that might work, if the mods wanted to do something like that. Should probably post an idea like that in the BYC thread. [​IMG]

    i sent a message to one of the mods about something like this, waiting on a response.

    a "constuctive criticism" post would be nice....

    bargain/Nancy... great packing job, beautiful birds... First class! (White Leghorns/ Speckled Sussex)
    Dipsy Doodle Doo... excellent packing job, not even a crack. excellent First class service! (Blue, Black and Splash Ameraucanas)

    In the buy sell trade section there's a thread called "Wanted positive feedback" it might be what your looking for.

    yes there are two sides to every storey, and the other may not know they're get slammed and will not have their day in "court".

    postal service has alot to do with broke eggs and poor hatches, i mean if the square box is round ,,,,,,
