An absurd thing & fake userAn absurd thing & fake userDiary

AflexXxAflexXx24 days ago
Last night a blatantly fake user decided to exploit an absurdly wrong function of the market creating a lot of inconvenience to some users / sellers, myself included: he started releasing senseless feedback on random ads (probably it started from one of my featured ) causing them to close automatically and making them "unavailable".

The problem is that due to this absurd automatic function the seller can no longer do anything: he cannot report the feedback with insults or swear words, he cannot republish the ad, he must necessarily go and look for an Admin (which is anything but simple, I had to search the FAQ) and wait for it to take care of it.

In Italy it was after 11 pm at the time of the report and the guy had fun at least until around midnight, it's not exactly a comfortable time to get into a fight with a stoner who has nothing better to do and it is not pleasant to have fake feeds with the words "you cum on Saitama's head and you sold it to me like this" and honestly I would prefer to be able to report them immediately from my personal area and (as happens on ebay) that they would be blacked out pending verification of the Admin.

That said: I find it a stupid, useless and potentially confusing feature.
I hope that it will be deleted or at least modified so that it can only be accessed after approval by the seller, in order to avoid other similar incidents.

Good evening.

Venetica23 days ago#95777181I think the problem is that MFC tries to police sales but only partially, resulting in failure. If this system were more informal (such as Den of Angels, as an example - each user participating in sales has their own thread that feedback is left on), it would make more sense.
MFC does have something like this called the Tsuki Peer's Approval Club (CLUB #581). It's just, like many features on this site, extremely unused or people are unaware it even exists.

There's also the GO & Split Feedback Club (CLUB #1701) which is used specifically for the Group Orders! and Let's Split Nendoroids! clubs which focuses on selling/buying goods and nendoroid parts rather than figures.

migur23 days ago#95753856no option is immune to ill intentions, everything can be abused.
I once left (real) feedback to a crappy seller; somehow they were able to delete my feedback by/and reactivating the add. This seller has now a 100% positive feedback, while i left him a 1 star rating.

Sorry to hear that, that's BS. Never said the current system was any good.

Again, not perfect, but either we take full control (like eBay) or let buyers/sellers deal with stuff themselves, and not this awkward half-assed thing we have going on now.

Venetica23 days ago#95739890Great suggestion but this can easily be abused. A seller with ill intentions can simply choose a friend or alt account instead of the real buyer.
Agreed the system needs to change but I don't see a perfect solution.

migur23 days ago#95739780A better option would be when you mark an add list as sold; that you can select the user it's sold to and that person only can give feedback. This way people can less easily troll the feedback option.

The character is japanese! I found this highly annoying and reported them. Their account was soon deleted. People need to find better things to do with their time.

Weirdly enough recently I've seen people online make similar complaints about the games for focusing on the yakuza lifestyle. Like, who would have thought that a game called Yakuza would feature the yakuza? I think people are just bored during quarantine.

On topic MFC should only allow the buyer to leave a review instead of locking the ad as soon as anyone leaves feedback. I've only sold around a half dozen figures here so I wasn't even aware of this issue, but it seems like a really odd way to troll the site.

Feedback in itself can be usefull, and i understand that the website doesn't have the
possibility to ''approve'' the feedback. This will lead to a biased feedback; only good feedback will show. A better option would be when you mark an add list as sold; that you can select the user it's sold to and that person only can give feedback. This way people can less easily troll the feedback option.

The feedback mentioned by the OP is just too childish to speak further about. I mean use the functions where they are used for; not to troll/annoy/bully people.

lmao the hell? People be crazy.
I think maybe the recent praising/celebrating of trolls on this site has made a lot of them come out of the woodworks. I've certainly noticed an increase in questionable articles. It's all been fun and games so far but once you start welcoming them then they'll start upping their antics to be more and more malicious just like this article highlights.
