What is Feedback?

What is feedback?
This is user created information about transactions here on PbNation. Members use it to gauge how reliable another user might be in for a future deal. It helps members warn each other about potential bad traders and rewards good traders to make it easier for them to buy, sell or trade items in the future.

Why do I want feedback?
It lets other users know you are trustworthy and makes it easier to sell and trade things here on PbNation.

Should I trust someone with no feedback?
That is completely up to you. There will always be people out there who will take advantage of others, so be careful sending anything you can't afford to lose even if the other person has perfect feedback. We recommend following these Trading Tips and never being forced into doing something you feel uncomfortable with.

Should I always trust someone with lots of feedback?
That is completely up to you. There will always be people out there who will take advantage of others, so be careful sending anything you can't afford to lose even if the other person has perfect feedback. We recommend following these Trading Tips and never being forced into doing something you feel uncomfortable with.

What about banned accounts?
Banned accounts are not eligible for PbNation feedback. If you get permanently banned here, you lose your feedback. If you have received feedback from an account before the user is banned, then it is valid and you can keep it.

What about two threads for the same item?
Sellers are not supposed to double list for sale items. If one user has a Want To Buy thread and the other user has a For Sale thread, the two users must decide which thread to use for feedback. They may not double their feedback and use both threads for the same transaction.

How do I keep the seller from editing his B/S/T post during the deal?
Since a user is capable of editing the thread including after they have sold the item, we suggest always quoting the original for sale post with the item you are buying and rehosting the images so that even if they change the initial post, you always have a copy in their thread of what was for sale. This helps settle any argument later about what was and was not part of the deal.

What do I do if I get bad feedback?
Unfortunately, it may happen. Your best bet is to deal directly with the person who left it and try to work out an arrangement so both parties are satisfied.

What do I do if I get false feedback?
You will need to report it using the Report button. Please make sure to explain in detail how you know this is false feedback and be able to prove it. If it's your word against theirs, there is nothing we can do.

What is feedback fraud?
Feedback Fraud is generally when a user augments his or her own feedback in any way. Common examples of feedback fraud are creating a new account just to leave feedback, leaving off key details such as when a trade is local, leaving feedback when the deal did not originate on PbNation or implying that an item was shipped when it was a local trade. Feedback fraud is taken very seriously on PbNation and often results in a permanent ban for all accounts involved.

When is Feedback eligible to be reported or even removed?
We expect you to report all positive feedback you did not legitimately earn. No exceptions. This is especially true of local deals or deals where the other party was known to you. Not reporting these types of "false positives" can lead to your account being banned for feedback fraud.

If PbNation is provided with a valid court order finding that the disputed feedback is slanderous, libelous, defamatory or otherwise illegal.

The feedback comment contains profane, vulgar, obscene, or racist language or adult material. Inflammatory language, such as "fraud, liar, cheater, scam artist, con man" etc., while strongly discouraged, will not be removed.

The feedback comment contains personal identifying information about another member, including real name, address, phone number, or e-mail address.

Negative feedback intended for another member will be considered for removal only in situations where the member responsible for the mistaken posting informs PbNation of the error and has already placed the same feedback for the correct member.

PbNation is not responsible for any of the information in the Feedback system or what any individual does with the information in this forum. You are buying/selling at your own risk.

Members could be held legally responsible for damages to a member's reputation if a court were to find that the remarks constitute libel or defamation. Under federal law (the Communications Decency Act), because PbNation does not censor feedback or investigate it for accuracy, PbN is not legally responsible for the remarks that members post, even if those remarks are defamatory. However, this law does not protect the person who leaves the feedback from responsibility for it.


How do I leave feedback? (instructions)

Go to any B/S/T thread where you purchased or sold an item. Remember, you must have posted in the thread to leave feedback. Find the user with whom you completed a deal. In the top right of their post, click on the words, "Post feedback for buyer|seller"

Make sure you read the feedback rules before leaving feedback. If you don't agree with them or understand them, don't use our feedback system.

Here's an example where you were the seller:

Here's an example where you were the buyer:

(Notice how both buyers quoted the original sale so even if the seller edited his post to "Sold" later, they could still read the details of what was purchased. We also recommend posting the terms of the deal in the thread once they've been agreed to so there is no confusion.)

If it was a trade and you both have a thread, the feedback can start with either thread. You are not allowed to receive or give feedback from both threads since it was one deal.

Then fill out the following quick form. Other users checking feedback later will only be able to see the top three blanks. The large additional comment is for direct communication with the other person in the transaction.

Please follow this format when entering feedback. Include what the item was, a short review of the transaction and a detail or two that stands out (example: 2005 Ego / B+ / would do business again, should have been packed better). Since this is the only part other people will be able to see, make sure to leave some detail so your feedback is useful to future buyers. You must indicate if the person is known to you in any way (on your team, friend from school, relative or even someone you met once or casually know) in this blank. You also must put how the transaction was completed if it was done in any way besides shipping the part through UPS, USPS, Fed Ex or DHL. You also must say so if you used a 3rd party. Avoiding any of these three rules is feedback fraud which results in an immediate and permanent ban.

That's it. You're done. The system will automatically send the other user a PM with a link to the feedback you posted so he can post feedback in return or reply to your comments.

The Feedback rating system is easy (just like eBay). You receive:
+1 point for each positive comment
0 points for each neutral comment
-1 point for each negative comment


Feedback Rules

Read this all the way through before leaving feedback. If you don't understand or don't agree with any of these rules, don't use our feedback system.

Do not leave feedback until the deal is 100% completed. You can only edit feedback for 48 hours so get it right the first time.

Do not troll and or leave unwarranted feedback because it can result in a ban. Do not joke around in other people's feedback. Feedback fraud is taken very seriously and can result in your account being permanently banned.

  1. No false feedback. You must have sold, bought or traded something on PbNation of more than $5 value (not including shipping) in order to receive or give feedback. A transaction has to have taken place. You can not give away things such as stickers, parts or gmail accounts for feedback.
  2. All feedback must be from PbNation. The deal must have originated through a B/S/T thread on PbNation and not locally at the field, on eBay or down the hall with your brother. You can meet locally to exchange gear or money, but the deal must have originated in public areas on PbNation (PM's are not valid for feedback). If you meet locally to exchange items you need to state this in the feedback. You may NOT say "fast shipping" in such circumstances or anything similar. If the person is known to you in any way (on your team, friend from school, relative or even someone you met once or casually know), you must say this also. (See rule # 7 for more.) You may not post any feedback that may be misleading. Violating any of these rules is feedback fraud which results in an immediate and permanent ban.
  3. Product or funds must have been sent or exchanged for feedback to be applicable. One side must have shipped or sent funds before feedback can be left. You can not leave feedback if the transaction did not go through or the other person changed their mind before you sent out payment or product, even if you were scheduled to meet up and the other person did not show up. Using a third party service would have prevented such an inconvenience.
  4. Only leave feedback for the username you dealt with. Do NOT leave feedback for a different user account. If you leave feedback for someone and it turns out you did not do a deal with that username, then YOU will have committed feedback fraud, and may be permanently banned.
  5. Do not expect a mod to delete feedback for you if the person you dealt with is upset. Do not expect mods to mediate deals that went wrong either. Work it out with them so both parties are satisfied.
  6. Do not expect a mod to delete or modify feedback you left. Think before you post and give the other party a chance to work any problems out before posting.
  7. Please follow this format when entering feedback. Include what the item was, a short review of the transaction and a detail or two that stands out (example: 2005 Ego / B+ / would do business again, should have been packed better). Since this is the only part other people will be able to see, make sure to leave some detail so your feedback is useful to future buyers. You must indicate if the person is known to you in any way (on your team, friend from school, relative or even someone you met once or casually know) in this blank. You also must put how the transaction was completed if it was done in any way besides shipping the part through UPS, USPS, Fed Ex or DHL. You also must say so if you used a 3rd party. Avoiding any of these three rules is feedback fraud which results in an immediate and permanent ban.
  8. Feedback is designed to build trust within the community and to show you are trustworthy and will do the right thing even without someone watching over you. Since 3rd party trading inherently means you don't trust the other person, both parties must include in the "A short comment" blank that the transaction had a third party. If you were the 3rd party and you want feedback for participating in the transaction, you must have your own B/S/T 3rd Party thread in the "Services" forum.
  9. Feedback must originate from the For Sale or WTB thread in B/S/T where the deal started. You need to find the original thread to get feedback. You may not post a new B/S/T thread just to collect feedback or post in a different thread, even if it was for a legitimate PbNation transaction. You must use the original thread. If there was no thread or you can't find the correct thread, then there can be no feedback.

If you receive feedback that breaks any of the above rules, it is your responsibility to report it immediately and follow up to make sure it is deleted. If you don't, you risk being banned

Editing Feedback after 48 hours - If you must change feedback, make a thread in the Talk to Mods/Admins forum with what you want the new rating to be as well as what you want the rating to say. We generally do not change a positive rating to negative or a negative rating to positive. We will change to a neutral rating if you have a good reason why. To speed up the process, please post the user you had a deal with, what rating you want to change it to, why you want to change it and the new text for the short description (limited to 80 characters).

Older Rules
You are only allowed one feedback thread per username. You lose your old feedback if your username gets permanently banned, you risk a permanent ban on your current account if you reference old feedback from a banned account. If you can't find your feedback thread, that is NOT an excuse to make another. There is a tutorial here that will help you find it, and if that fails post in the Talk To Mods/Admins forum and we will help you find it.

Reminder
These rules are not to be broken or bent as the staff at PbNation take feedback very seriously. Disregard these rules and you will find yourself perm-banned. Remember, we can see where posts originate from as well as who registers accounts and where they were created. You will eventually get caught if you have or give false feedback.


Feedback FAQ

Make sure you read the feedback rules before leaving feedback. If you don't agree with them or understand them, don't use our feedback system.

What does the Rate button do? (little yellow or grey tag)
This is a shortcut to write feedback about someone who has already rated you. You can click on the Rate yellow tag or you can go to the thread and rate them from there. It will end up doing the same thing. Grey Rate buttons just mean you have already left them feedback.

What does the Edit button do? (little hammer)
It allows you to edit your own post in another user's feedback. You only have 24 hours to change your post, so put some thought into it the first time. After your feedback is locked, it stays.

What does the Report button do? (little triangular warning)
It allows you to notify a mod of false feedback. Do not use it if someone has given you bad feedback. Please read the last question in the FAQ before using the Report function.

What is a Feedback Score?
That is the user's number of positive pieces of feedback minus their negative feedback. Neutrals do not count for or against this score. Example: 5 positives, 2 neutrals and 2 negatives would mean a feedback score of 3. Remember, a user with a high score might still have some negative transactions. Make sure you look through their feedback thoroughly and read the negative posts before trading.

How is the new feedback system different?
It has several advantages. You can now at a glance see a user's positive, neutral and negative feedback. You can also communicate directly with another user to solve a dispute without cluttering up a feedback thread. You can even post feedback for a user straight from their Buy/Sell/Trade thread.

What do I put in the "A short comment" blank when I leave feedback?
Please follow this format when entering feedback. Include what the item was, a short review of the transaction and a detail or two that stands out (example: 2005 Ego / B+ / would do business again, should have been packed better). Since this is the only part other people will be able to see, make sure to leave some detail so your feedback is useful to future buyers. You must indicate if the person is known to you in any way (on your team, friend from school, relative or even someone you met once or casually know) in this blank. You also must put how the transaction was completed if it was done in any way besides shipping the part through UPS, USPS, Fed Ex or DHL. You also must say so if you used a 3rd party. Avoiding any of these three rules is feedback fraud which results in an immediate and permanent ban.

What if I can't find the B/S/T thread? How do I get feedback?
Feedback must originate from the For Sale or WTB thread in B/S/T where the deal started. You need to find the original thread to get feedback. You may not post a new B/S/T thread just to collect feedback or post in a different thread, even if it was for a legitimate PbNation transaction. You must use the original thread. If there was no thread or you can't find the correct thread, then there can be no feedback. Feedback that links to the wrong thread is feedback fraud.

Do I have to post in the thread before I can leave feedback?
Yes. The system will not allow you to leave feedback in threads you have not posted in.

What if I want to edit the feedback I posted?
You only have 48 hours to edit feedback. We recommend you complete your deal and test all of the product before posting any feedback. If something isn't right, contact the other party and give them a chance to make it right before posting feedback. Once you post feedback, after 48 hours it gets locked.

How do I view my feedback page?
Go to any of your own posts and click on your name. Click on the option that says "View Feedback." This doesn't just work for your own feedback, you can view anyone's feedback like this.

You can also follow links on Feedback pages back to your own or other people's feedback. Or you can go to your profile and click the View Feedback link under User Notes.

How do I view someone else's feedback page?
It's just like viewing your own. Go to any of their posts and click on their name. Scroll down to the Feedback link and click it. Take your mouse and put it over your name over your avatar. Click on the one that says "View Feedback." You can view anyone's feedback like this.

You can also follow links on Feedback pages back to your own or other people's feedback. Or you can go to your profile and click the View Feedback link under User Notes.

How do I give or receive feedback the old way?
All old feedback threads are now locked, but they are still visible. You can still refer users to it so they can check your old feedback, but they won't be able to post in it. In other words, you can't leave feedback the old way.

How do I post 3rd Party Trade feedback?
Feedback is designed to build trust within the community and to show you are trustworthy and will do the right thing even without someone watching over you. Since 3rd party trading inherently means you don't trust the other person, both parties must include in the "A short comment" blank that the transaction had a third party. If you were the 3rd party and you want feedback for participating in the transaction, you must have your own B/S/T 3rd Party thread in the "Services" forum.

How do I give feedback for a New Products / Services thread if I won't get the item until after the Gold Ups on the thread expires and I can no longer view it?
Always sure both parties post in the thread before the Gold Ups expire. Make sure you have the seller leave you feedback as soon as you buy the item. Then when you receive it, use the yellow rate tag in your feedback to return feedback. If the seller forgets to leave you feedback, they can always view their thread in the New Item / Services Holding Pen and leave you feedback from there. However, if you never posted in the thread, you won't be able to get feedback from that deal. Never post in a different thread to leave or receive feedback. Feedback that links to the wrong thread is feedback fraud.

What about users that are banned?
If they are temp banned, they can leave you feedback when they come back from their vacation. You lose all of your feedback when you are perm banned from the site. You also lose your rights to post new feedback. If you had a deal from a perm banned user and he never left you feedback, it is lost. Under no circumstances may you leave or receive feedback for a user under a different user name than you dealt with. In other words, if a user is banned, you may not leave them new feedback under their new user name or receive it. Violating any of these rules is feedback fraud which results in an immediate and permanent ban.

What was wrong with the old system?
The old system was ghetto. Anyone could fake feedback and even good users were augmenting their feedback with a couple fake posts because it was so easy. Users were constantly claiming they had all positive feedback when they often did not. Also people were claiming feedback from a different name was their own. This feedback is linked to your name so there is no confusion. The old way was just designed for a much smaller user community and we got hundreds of complaints about it.

Why can't PbNation convert our old feedback for us? Or just automatically enter your positives?
One of the reasons we have the new system is because people kept forgetting to put in a link to previous transactions. Only you know where those transactions are. We can't find them for you. Remember, we created this system because of all the "fake positive" pieces of feedback out there. If we validated all of the old feedback by entering it in the new system then we would taint the new system with that old fake feedback. The new system wouldn't be any more reliable than the old.

How do I convert old feedback?
Exactly the same as posting new feedback. Just go to the thread the deal was done in and follow the directions posted here. Don't PM people asking for feedback, just give them feedback and the system will PM them for you.

Do I have to convert old feedback?
No. You can simply link people to your old feedback thread. Just remember, any feedback in there without a link people will wonder if it is real.

Can I give or receive more than one piece of feedback for one "For Sale" thread?
If you sold to more than one person from a single thread, then yes. It works just like normal. However, if you sold to the same person more than once in the same thread, then no. No feedback system I've ever found allows that. Otherwise you could agree to buy a gun in a hundred pieces and get a hundred pieces of feedback from it. Ebay is even more strict with their feedback. They only allow you to leave feedback that will affect a user's score once ever.


What should I do if I receieve inappropriate feedback?

If a member leaves you inappropriate feedback, make sure you ask them to delete it right away. They have 48 hours to delete it. To edit or delete feedback, the person who left it needs to click the icon next to the feedback that needs to be changed.

If they don't respond immediately and remove it, you need to report the feedback and ask for it to be removed. Make sure you say why you want it deleted. To report a specific piece of feedback, go to your feedback and click the icon next to the feedback that needs to be changed.

If the feedback is still there a week after you reported it, report it again and make a thread in the Talk to Mods forum. Remember, you both can be banned permanently for inappropriate feedback so act quickly. It only takes a couple seconds and shouldn't be put off because delaying could cause you to lose your account.


Is Feedback from a local deal or with someone you know allowed?

Often when someone gets banned who thinks that all of their feedback was legitimate, it was due to a local trade. If the deal started with a B/S/T post on PbNation and the deal was clearly marked that it was local, with a friend, with a team mate or with a relative then it is allowed. Read on for the specific rules.

We are very specific about how to mark local deals. It says right on the page where you leave feedback: "State if you are the buyer, seller or trader. Be sure to list the product name, and your opinion of this user. (Example: Bought Ego / A- / Would do business again!). If this transaction happened locally, it must also be specified in this box!"

If you receive feedback from a local deal that doesn't have all the correct information, it is your responsibility to report it and follow up to make sure it is edited or removed.

There's also a link right on the page where you leave feedback to the full feedback rules which are very clear as well about local deals:

2. All feedback must be from PbNation. The deal must be made through PbNation and not locally at the field, on eBay or down the hall with your brother. You can meet locally to exchange gear or money, but the deal must have originated in public areas on PbNation (PM's are not valid for feedback). If you meet locally to exchange items you need to state this in the feedback. You may NOT say "fast shipping" in such circumstances or anything similar. If the person is known to you (on your team, friend from school or a relative), you must say this also. (See rule # 7 for more.) You may not post any feedback that may be misleading. Violating any of these rules is feedback fraud.

7. Please follow this format when entering feedback. Include what the item was, a short review of the transaction and a detail or two that stands out (example: 2005 Ego / B+ / would do business again, should have been packed better). Since this is the only part other people will be able to see, make sure to leave some detail to help them out. You must indicate if the person was a friend, teammate, relative or local in this blank. You also must put if the transaction was done any way besides shipping the part through UPS, USPS, Fed Ex or DHL. You also must say so if you used a 3rd party. Avoiding any of these three rules is feedback fraud.


Can a mod mediate my B/S/T deal or feedback?

Yes we can, but only if you used one of our mods to act as a 3rd party. Pretty much the only time we will mediate Feedback or a B/S/T deal at all is if one of our mods was used as a third party. Then we at least know what happened.

I'm sorry but we can't mediate any deals for you that are already in process or already finished. We have no way of knowing what actually transpired with the deal. We don't know what was promised, what was delivered or if either party is telling us the whole truth.

Hopefully you at least used B/S/T Trust so you know you have the other user's correct contact info.

Before you do another deal on PbNation, we strongly recommend you read the B/S/T Tips. They might not have saved you this time, but there is a lot of valuable information in there.

The first rule of B/S/T is: 1 Buy/Sell/Trade here on PbNation at your own risk. We assume no responsibility for any part of any transaction including feedback.

Your best bet is to talk it out with the other party. Be polite and explain your side of the situation and try to work out a deal that is fair.

On rare occasions we can mediate feedback when we have complete information about the situation. A public confession by someone who lied as part of the deal or a conviction in a court of law against a scammer will occasionally allow us to step in and mediate feedback at least. In those rare cases we will allow feedback to be left that normally wouldn't be or we can delete false negatives.


Can mods delete retaliatory feedback?

Yes we can mediate feedback if you used a mod as a 3rd party. Please have the mod notify a feedback moderator to remove unfair or inappropriate feedback.

If a user leaves you feedback you do not deserve, talk it out. Contact them direct and try to make them happy with the deal. The best way to fix negative feedback is to have the person who issueed it ask for it to be changed.

Generally it is near impossible for a mod to see who is in the wrong because we never saw the product and don't have access to the details of the deal. However, when a user states the feedback is in retaliation for a negative or neutral, it can often be removed. If a user never shipped the item after being paid, retaliatory feedback can sometimes be removed. A seller who was paid the correct amount on time better have a solid reason to leave a buyer negative or neutral feedback.

Again, the best way to handle negative or neutral feedback is to discuss it with the other party and try to make them happy with the deal.


Why don't you ban users who get negative feedback?
Often negative feedback is earned because of poor communication or the item not being described well enough. Negative feedback does not mean the person is a scammer. Also, being accused of being a scammer does not necessarily mean a user is one, but it does mean you should be wary when doing business with them.

PbNation does not typically ban users who earn negative feedback. If you were scammed, we strongly encourage you to file a police report. We fully cooperate with law enforcement and we will certainly ban an account if asked by the police.

However, occasionally we do have to step in if a user is abusing the B/S/T section. This may involve placing limitations on them, infracting or even banning their account. Failure to follow a moderator's instructions in the feedback or BST sections can lead to an infraction or ban.


Can I give or receive feedback from a family member?

No. That would be feedback fraud and will most likely end with all accounts involved in the fraud being banned.

Our feedback system is designed to instill trust within the community by demonstrating that strangers can work out deals from a distance. You would be violating that trust by building up your feedback with false positives from deals that never should have earned feedback at all if you counted deals with family members.

If a family member leaves you inappropriate feedback, make sure you get them to delete it right away. They have 48 hours to delete it. If they don't respond immediately and remove it, you need to report the feedback and ask for it to be removed. Make sure you say why you want it deleted. If the feedback is still there a week after you reported it, report it again and make a thread in the Talk to Mods forum. Remember, you both can be banned permanently for inappropriate feedback so act quickly. It only takes a couple seconds and shouldn't be put off because delaying could cause you to lose your account.

NOTE: PbNation feedback is only legitimate when the deal starts on PbNation. That means the deal has to be posted on PbN and it has to be seen there first to be within the rules.


What is Feedback Fraud?

Feedback Fraud is generally when a user augments feedback in any way. Please read the Feedback Rules very carefully. Breaking any of those rules can earn you an instant ban.

Common examples of feedback fraud are:

  • Not reporting feedback that breaks our rules and was left for you is feedback fraud even though you didn't leave it. Keep reporting it each week (not daily or hourly please) until it is removed if a mod does not remove it that week.
  • You may never leave or receive feedback from someone you know unless it says that you know them and how. Remember, deals like this are only valid if they started on PbNation in a public thread. On the rare occasion someone you know finds your B/S/T thread on PbN before you tell them about it, you can leave feedback for each other but you must say if any part of the deal was done in person and exactly how you know them in the short description.
  • Creating a 2nd account and leaving feedback with it. Use your own account and only your account to leave feedback.
  • Linking to another account's feedback is prohibited. Even if both accounts belong to the same person, you may not link to feedback from a different account.
  • Leaving off key details such as when a trade is local or you know the other person in the deal is feedback fraud. Local trades must originate on Pbnation and you must say in the short description they are local. No exceptions.
  • Leaving or receiving feedback when the deal did not originate on PbNation is feedback fraud.
  • Leaving unwarranted feedback in any way is feedback fraud. Negative or positive.
  • Only leave feedback for the username you dealt with. Do NOT leave feedback for a different user account. If you leave feedback for someone and it turns out you did not do a deal with that username, then YOU will have committed feedback fraud, and may be permanently banned. For example: if the user is banned, he loses his feedback. He can not leave feedback again from his new account nor can receive feedback for that deal done with the older account.
  • Feedback that links to the wrong thread is feedback fraud. You may only link to the actual thread where the deal started. If you deal did not start on PbNation, did not start in the public area of PbNation or you can not find the thread, you can't leave feedback.
  • Leaving or receiving feedback more than once for the same deal is never allowed.
  • Leaving feedback when the item bought/sold/trades was less than $5 is feedback fraud.
  • Never log into another user's account and leave or alter feedback, even if they ask you to or they don't understand the feedback system.

Feedback fraud is taken very seriously on PbNation and often results in a permanent ban for all accounts involved.

Remember, you may not leave feedback unless one party has shipped. Breaking that rule isn't necessarily feedback fraud, but it is grounds for removal of the inappropriate feedback and possibly even an infraction. Repeated abuse of the feedback system will result in a ban even if no fraud was involved.


Can I give or receive feedback from a teammate or a friend?

Usually those deals are not eligible for feedback since they happen in person and you generally don't find out about friends or teammates gear for sale on PbNation.

Our feedback system is designed to instill trust within the community by demonstrating that strangers can work out deals from a distance. At the bare minimum you would need to say how you know the person and state that the deal went down in person.

If a teammate leaves you inappropriate feedback, make sure you get them to delete it right away. They have 48 hours to delete it. If they don't respond immediately and remove it, you need to report the feedback and ask for it to be removed. Make sure you say why you want it deleted. If the feedback is still there a week after you reported it, report it again and make a thread in the Talk to Mods forum. Remember, you both can be banned permanently for inappropriate feedback so act quickly. It only takes a couple seconds and shouldn't be put off because delaying could cause you to lose your account.

NOTE: PbNation feedback is only legitimate when the deal starts on PbNation. That means the deal has to be posted on PbN and it has to be seen there first to be within the rules. If they told you about it in person, over the phone or at the field then it is not eligible for PbN feedback.


Can we leave feedback if we trade back?
If one party shipped, you both can leave feedback. You may not leave two pieces of feedback if you trade an item back.
