Hate to tell you that petitioning to get a Bad Trade reference removed is a slim chance. Of the various things on Btown, it is one of the harder things to do.

Speaking personally, (and YES, I know I have a rating of Huge), I have 1 Bad Ref that I want removed, and 1 Neutral from a year ago. The Bad ref was a mistake by the user (clicked the wrong tab).. and even THEN removing it is on the back burner.

About the only way to mitigate the Negative is to follow thru on the trade, and get a Good reference that refers to the Bad one as resolved.
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

Pork has the right of it.
You can TRY to have Linrandir remove it but the general rule is that, once a ref is INTENTIONALLY left, it remains.


@Dad

FYI, for both of you:

When you are sending minis internationally, label them as "TOYS"!

General "Merchandise" will carry customs duty charges, because it looks commercial.

If you properly label them as "Toys", usually, there won't be any duty (they're not supposed to charge for toys).
Feedback as "JohnHwangBT" on Bartertown

Any Negatives or Neutrals? *You* ship first, regardless of rating!

if they're not NIB, you can lable them USEd toys.. because, they're not new.
now, if they're still in a sealed/wrapped box..just unwrap the package.. it's not new.. but still not used.
