Upload & Sell: On
Just for a little context here - my own interpretation at least.
We all know that the eBay feedback system used to be "broken." Even if you had a really bad experience, most people wouldn't leave negative feedback, because they knew that the Seller/Buyer would retaliate and do the same.
Unless they did it at the last minute of the 30 day waiting period, so that it was too late to retaliate. Or it was the only leverage they had with a seller.
But that could also work the other way, allowing a Buyer to "blackmail" a Seller, etc.
The poll is really a question about how well you think the "Great/Neutral/Poor" rating system works here.
Personally, I have only had 100% positive experiences in buying and selling here with all of the people who I have completed a deal with. I consider many to be friends, and we had a lot of great PM chats, good communication, maybe a few odd things that we were able to fix. (I forgot to put a lens hood in one box, etc.)
Others have had bad experiences, with a lot of stress and uncertainty. But they may have still left "Great" as feedback, either with or without more nuance in the comments to explain what "actually" happened.
I know from previous experience running student component centers at a university that evaluations tend to cluster very strongly toward the top of the scale of 3, 5, 7, however many options.
That is also a problem in employee reviews, etc. Everybody gets at least a "B." there are 10% "A's" (if they are strongly limited by management directive), and a handful of "C's", etc.
A secondary question might be: "How well is the Buy & Sell working? Do you feel safe using the feedback system, or do you need more information than that provides, even for buyers/sellers with good feedback?"
Any other suggestions on "best practices?"
