I would like to announce our new, LJ-based, feedback community!
It's located at eglfeedback, please take a look, read the rules and request a feedback page here.

Everyone requesting feedback pages, please read:

If you are in need of a feedback page immediately, PM oh_tralala, who will have your page up as soon as possible.
However, if you can wait, please post to the request a feedback post, where laviefantasque will handle your request.

When requesting your feedback page, please copy, fill out, and send the following information:

Username at DBS (should match your LJ User Name):
Additional Feedback (eBay, Etsy, etc):
If your LJ is connected to another account (old or sales account), please mention the LJ username:

If you own an Online Shop or Shopping service:

Website/Shopping Service Account:
Username at DBS:
Additional Feedback:


The idea is simple: everyone requests their own page with their active username, this will be linked under the corresponding letter posts and tagged with the first character of the username. When you're looking for feedback, you can use the list or the tags. The posts will include all comments, positive, neutral and negative equally. Use this information before deciding to buy or sell!

The moderators of this community are the same people who moderate the sales community.

With the creation of this new community, there will be new rules put in place on the community sales:

You HAVE to link to your feedback in your posts on egl_comm_sales [which was already a rule], and now this includes a post on eglfeedback
In other words, you can direct people to your personal journals, your eBay and Etsy feedback but you HAVE to always link to your feedback page on the new community as well. This will be the official community-linked source. If you have no feedback yet, request a page and mention this on your post.

Feedback has to be a direct link.
No "I have feedback on the community" or "I have feedback on my journal" or "on ebay under the name xyz". The link has to go to the actual feedback page.

Feedback should be mentioned on ALL posts on egl_comm_sales
It doesn't matter if you're selling, buying, hosting a group order or looking for something... You have to link your feedback!

NOTICE! In order to make that all these new changes are going over well, we're moderating posting to egl_comm_sales. This will last for as long as is needed, we hope no longer than 4 weeks.
Please go over all the sales rules before posting, this will ensure a quick acceptance and make it easier for everyone! Thanks for your cooperation.

And one last mention for the use of eglfeedback:

You can use tags and comments to see if a user has bad feedback! The system is now set up so that a post gets tagged "!scammer" and "!negative", be sure to check that out.
Also always remember to look at the list of banned users. Which can be found here.

I will post this announcement on both egl and egl_comm_sales and link to this post in the header of egl_comm_sales as well as eglfeedback

Regarding new feedback regulations

Hey everyone, thanks for working with us and requesting feedback pages on the new community!

However, if you want to make a post on this community, you'll notice it will go to the moderation queue.
In order to get you your new feedback page and accept your sales post faster, kindly PM oh_tralala who will then make sure you get your feedback link to include in your post. Thank you!

-- we have a LOT of feedback page requests, and of course the sales go on as usual.
So to be clear, I'm taking on the 'regular' feedback requests and oh_tralala is making sure the new sales posts get their new feedback accordingly. So, if you PM her, your sales post will get accepted faster.
