Backout Reports Statute of Limitations - 30 day rule

Post by porkuslime » Sat Oct 02, 2010 12:13 pm

Backout Report Statute of Limitations:
All Backout Reports Must Be Filed In A Timely Manner.


You now have 30 calendar days after your trade partner's last contact (email, PM, etc) to file a Backout Report. Backout Reports filed after this time frame will be removed. A courtesy PM saying that you are filing a Backout Report should be sent prior to opening a Backout Report.

Examples.

A. Jim & Eric negotiate and agree upon a trade.
They exchange addresses and Eric agrees to ship first.
Two days later, Eric lets Jim know that he doesn't need the items, as he's found them cheaper somewhere else.
AT THIS POINT, Jim has 30 calendar days calendar days from Eric's last PM to file a B&D report.

B. Jim & Eric negotiate and agree upon a trade.
They exchange addresses and Eric agrees to ship first.
A week passes, but the items don't arrive.
Jim PMs Eric to find out what's causing the delay.
The PM is read, but Eric does not respond
AT THIS POINT, Jim has 30 calendar days calendar days from Eric's last PM to file a B&D report.

C. Jim PM's Eric with a trade offer.
Eric counter-offers.
Jim counters.
No further response from Eric.
Jim PMs Eric to find out what's causing the delay.
The PM is read, but Eric does not respond
Jim has no deal, Eric is not responding.. NO B&D can be filed.
2+2=5 for sufficiently large values of 2.

If you don't have your Location listed in your User Control Panel, why not take a second and update it? It will let your trading partners know where you are from the beginning.

I use the Unofficial Porkuslime Trading Guidelines - if you have way less refs.. you ship first.

Folks I am awaiting a ref from.. Zack
