I gotta say, I have been very fortunate in my time here at MW. I have bought and sold at least 60+ items on here in a quest for completing my Macross collection and everyone I've bought from or sold to has been excellent in both form and character. I have seen an influx of new members recently and wanted to share some advice I've learned through the years.
1. Watch the post counts and straight shooter list for anyone you plan to buy or sell to. They are good indicators of the person's reputation. I go even further by looking at their post history and read what they've sold, bought or posted in general in the past.
2. If you are selling something, be honest and truthful in your descriptions so that there are no surprises on the receiving end.
3. Maintain communication and respond in a timely manner with whoever you are buying or selling to. There is nothing worse then waiting for someone to respond hours or days after a deal has been started. Especially when you know that they're online.
4. Pack your items securely before shipping. When I pack an item I will always pack it the way I would expect something to be packed as if I were the recipient. I also pack for the worse because we all know how delivery services manhandle boxes.
My time on Macross World has dwindle a bit as I am working on a huge project which I will share with you guys shortly but without Macross World this project would not have come to light. Thanks guys!!!
