Re: Cries for Help


That's only 1 reason.

Main reason is, we are not collectors only to collect all what is out. We also want to hear them. Believe it or believe it not but I haven't had the time to listen to many of them. Can't trade something when I don't know how the soud-quality is or if there are may be errors in.

Yes Mrs Snap, I agree. My "listening" stack is way to large at this moment. Even if I get lucky and listen to each show that I have in the stack, it will take close to 4 months. Just not enough time in the year. When you do free up, I would love to strike up a trade with you. emoticon

Re: Cries for Help


I am a newish trader and I have always tried my utmost to complete my part of the trade first.Mrs Snap will back me up on this I am sure.Its difficult enough getting started as it is when you have little to trade with and its only due to the kindness of regular traders that I am now in a position where I can in fact help new traders myself.
I have been a DP fanatic since schooldays and first saw them in 76 but owing to the facts of a)firstly no computer. b)ignorance of the net and where to find ANYTHING!! C)Thinking that the only places I could obtain boots were from record and cd fairs at ridiculously high prices . I have only just discovered the forum and the good people who are on it.
I dont think its fair that just because I am new that I am untrustworthy.Howaythelads comment earlier was a tad unfair in that Mr Snip and Mrs Snap have traded with me and have never had a problem as they will tell you.If they had not taken the CHANCE and traded both they or myself would effectively worse off.Plus the fact its not the reason that they are stopping trading.
So come on Hawaythelads,give us new traders a fighting chance.I have just done a trade with a fellow Newcastle trader,he gave me a chance to trade.Dont be negative and you may be pleasantly suprised.

Indeed you are one of the many good traders we've had the privelidge to trade with. And indeed we will also help newbies when we start again. We know how difficult the beginning is. We might though change the procedure, closer to the one wormdp explained in his initial post.

For what it's worth - as a relatively inexperienced boot enthusiast, I can certainly vouch for Dunferpurple. emoticon

And yes! I WILL get a proper list put together for you emoticon

I don't think Hawaythelads is against trading with newbies. Newbies have to earn the trust of a trader. I wont send my trade material to any new traders who contact me without having their material arrive first. I use to believe that most people are trustworthy and do come through. But recent acts made towards me have changed my feelings on this. I wont stop trading nor will I stop trading with newbies, but there is guidelines that I will follow from now on.

We have only traded with one that wanted the cd's first (nah not true, all the blanks for boots, wanted the blanks first, and that's only fair). It's a weird feeling not being trusted.

I can vouch for Dunferpurple too.

If I'm contacted for a new trade, I'll probably only trade a couple of shows initially (unless the person is a regular poster on here - I'd trust them a bit more).

Thanks to all of you who vouched for me.I do appreciate it,and dont get me wrong,I am not having a go at Howaythelads personally.If new traders are not given a chance then you end up with basically a closed shop on the forum which would I feel would lead to stagnation.Part of the joy of trading is being in cotact with people from all over the globe who all share a common passion.
Oh and Nighthawk, I wait with bated breath for the elusive list :-)
