Where's the OME Group Buy Thread???
Good points. However, in the group buy purchasing arena, the actual invoicing and a payments are done usually via email, and I imagine in some cases via fax and telephone. Therefore, sufficient evidence should exist between vendor and those entered under the group buy, unless a vendor and purchaser were amazingly adept at deleting or forging transmissions/messages through third party subscription services.I did get my lift on Friday but it is not good business for the forum to sponsor group buys and then remove all evidence of a group buy existing before forum members received their paid merchandise. The transactions are not completed until everyone receives their merchandise, not when the seller receives their money. What if people didn't receive their items? What if they need to print out the group buy thread for evidentiary purposes? The admins need to reevaluate their policies for deleting group buys once the money exchanges hands to limit liability for the seller, purchaser, and forum.
Agreed...WOW! Thank you Toyota of Dallas... Glad N4WD couldn't get me the lift in the time that I had specified.
That is NOT right, these forums are setup to help the Vendors AND Members. If a vendor proves that he is unable to fullfill his promises then the Members should be able to "View" his past history. Should be allowed to "close" not "delete".
The Rules need to be changed to reflect that for ALL future posts..
Well, lets not get into which admin..Agreed...
What admin deleted? and why? (yes I know the vendor requested, but why comply?)
x2Well, lets not get into which admin..
Unfortunately, because they(vendors) can request it to be deleted, there is no rule currently in place to stop them(admins) from complying with the request. The admins are there for "both" sides. That is why I am asking the rules be changed. That way it allows the Members to "protect" themselves by consumer knowledge. If you delete the 'bad' things, the member has a skewd knowledge. Therefore, a thread should only be allowed to be closed.
