Everytime I do a BST with someone, I put in the details of the feedback to the other person, what I purchased, and how much I paid, to reference for future trades or if I want to keep a record on the site. Problem is, when I pick up a yo-yo and wonder how much I paid for it 6 months later and who I bought it from, I have to click all the usernames on my profile, look into their feedback, find my username and click on the details to see if that was the transaction. I always put the gist of the transaction, whether I am the buyer or seller, in the details of feedback to the other person.
I always write, I bought his mint X for $… And go on to describe how things went…
It would be cool if, on my own profile, I could enter my own details about the transaction. I only see a place for general comments on my general profile, but that is not for me to list about transactions. I may use it for that now, as I doubt anyone reads those comments anyway. What do you think of putting a link on each feedback comment so I can enter my own reference notes? I’d love that. I can keep track on a note pad, but it would be easier online to access anywhere, and if I can enter the notes on someone else’s profile…it would be nice to enter on my own too. One stop reference. I don’t think it would take much to implement a place to type in notes.
Also, I’m aware if this is implemented those who receive negative feedback will now have a place to rebut the negative feedback received and state their case. With this in place, the negative still stands, but the person will get to say, “sorry, my house burned down and I no longer had the yo-yo, my fault, but I returned the money.” Ebay allows it in their system too. Thoughts?
If a mod can chime in and tell me if they would erase a bunch of comments I put on my profile that says:
From username X I bought a mint Y for $
And I’d make a list. I want to know before I research all those transactions and do it
I wanted to resell a yoyo I bought off the BST. I wanted to remember how much I paid and who I got it from. I had to go to my feedback, and click like 8 usernames before I found the info. It would be better all on my own profile.
