 Hi  members,
   lot  of  people  are  buying  from  sellers  in  our  forum.  However  there  is  no  way  to  prevent  buyers  from  getting  burnt.  Can  we  have  a  feedback  system  to  rate  the  sellers  so  that  nobody  is  take  for  a  ride  by  some  dubious  seller.  Members  views  is  sought

 I  can  already  tell  you  that  this  is  not  going  to  be  allowed...And  in  this  specific  aspect,  "member  views"  are  not  going  to  make  a  least  bit  of  difference  to  the  mods/admins.  
 
 Currently,  any  threads  related  to  negative  feedback  regarding  sellers  or  even  brands  are  shut-down  on  IAH.  The  mods/admins  don't  want  any  "conflicts"...
 
 This  "avoidance  of  conflict"  attitude  is  so  entrenched  among  the  mods/admins  on  IAH  that  it  has  lead  to  the  rather  extreme  rule  of  not  allowing  price  discussions  at  all  (unlike  other  forums).
 
 So,  don't  waste  any  time  with  this..  It's  always  going  to  be  "caveat  emptor"
 
 Cheers,
 Sid

 it  is  of  no  use  to  act  lke  the  ostrich.  it  is  a  unavoidable  fact  that  the  forurm  is  being  used/will  be  used  to  conduct  transactions  and  hence  I  feel  that  we  should  have  the  feedback  system.

 Smile  I  am  not  disagreeing  with  your  opinion  that  this  will  be  a  good  idea...  I  am  just  stating  the  fact  that  this  will  not  be  allowed  on  IAH..
 
 There  is  a  growing  Indian  community  in  an  International  forum:  MonsterFishKeepers.com.  They  already  have  market-place  feedback  system  and  they  allow  open  discussion  about  price-points,  vendors,  online  stores,  everything..
 
 The  Indian  community  there  isn't  very  large  as  of  now,  but  it's  getting  there..  You  can  just  sign-up  to  that  forum  as  well.
 
 -Sid

 Ahh  Another  one  of  those  discussions.  Orieng  you  may  want  to  read  through  a  lot  of  previous  post  regarding  the  same  subject  and  will  probably  understand  Sid  better.  Its  like  each  country  /  companies  have  their  own  policies  and  procedures  and  we  have  to  respect  that.  Similar  each  forum  has  their  own  rules  and  we  must  respect  that.
 
 Warm  Regards

 Not  every  one  supports  price  discussions  as  they  most  often  turn  to  bitterness.  If  some  one  can  not  control  his  want  only  then  he  gets  robbed.  Research,  communication,  PMs  will  give  you  proper  feedback  of  any  individual  involved  with  this  forum,  so  no  need  to  have  a  public  discussion  IMHO.
 
 I   think  we  should  make  this  rule  a  sticky?

 I  am  not  going  to  argue  for  or  against  "price  discussions"  as  there  is  no  point  in  pursuing  that  here  on  IAH.
 
 But,  I  think  the  %  of  people  in  favor  of  price  discussion  will  be  higher  among  hobbyist  like  me  (with  no  inclination  towards  selling  fish/aquarium  products  on  a  commercial  basis).  And  the  %  of  people  against  price  discussion  will  be  higher  among  among  vendors/LFS  guys..
 
 The  above  bias  will  probably  be  also  true  for  the  suggested  "Market-place  feedback"  feature  on  IAH.
 
 To  take  a  very  recent  example,  there  is  a  post  on  the  IndiaPetStore  forum  from  a  guy  complaining  about  delayed  delivery.  Immediately  below  is  a  comment  by  a  satisfied  customer  and  then  there  is  a  very  good  explanation  from  Nirav  himself.  Honest  vendors  (like  Nirav)  giving  quality  products  usually  are  not  afraid  of  public  "customer-feedback"  and  "price  discussion"..  
 
 OTOH,  there  was  a  (so-called)  "hobbyist"  on  IAH  attempting  to  sell  Yellow  Labs  at  3  times  the  retail  price,  that  guy  will  definitely  not  like  "customer-feedback"  or  "price  discussions".
    
 Just  my  two  cents,
 Sid
