Why this reaction? I assume you want to sell your Death Star, but I also find
it hard to read your post. If you do what Smron suggested, you might actually
see more people interested. Is that not what you want?

As a buyer, I am interested in dealing with a seller who has the maturity, intelligence
and ability to properly communicate with me about (1) any possible large deal
like this and (b) any problems that may arise. When I see extremely poor grammar
and snappiness from a seller, it suggests to me that he has none of these things
that I consider essential for safe problem-free transacting.

You're on an international forum, you're grammar might be quite easely
readable by native English readers/speakers, it simply IS NOT when people who's
primary language isn't English. Those 'non native' English people
learned English in school, and I'm simply stunned by the fact how many write
better English then some people who should 'know better', dunno whether
it's laziness or habit...

And sure all people here are interested in LEGO (not 'legos' btw), and
most people won't care about an occasional grammar mistake, but when it comes
down to relationships in sales, buying and trades, respecting a certain level
of 'decent grammar' will get you a lot further as it gives proof of a
certain degree of maturity, which is required to bring 'deals' to a good
end...

Bottomline: You wanna 'deal' big, start by acting 'mature' in
stead of lowering yourself to the grammar level of a 12 year old.

Just a question: Are you teaching your kids better English cause it is so important
for their future cause most people do not post such poor English cause it looks
so bad and cause it reflects on the person posting.

Success is an interesting term and each of us measure it in different ways.
To apply it so broadly is simply naive and often reveals the character of an
individual.

Let me try to again patiently explain why communication skills and perceived
maturity DO matter - here and in real life. On BrickLink, you must be 18 or
older to buy and sell. When you write like a 14-year old whose life revolves
around texting, you come across as a minor who should not be here in the first
place. Many of us buyers (and sellers) adamantly refuse to do business with
minors or buyers/sellers who don't exhibit a minimal level of adulthood and
maturity. That feeling is reinforced when the seller gets snappy and defensive
when people here take the time to help them communicate better and present themself
as a better more capable seller or person with whom to transact.

This carries over in real life as well. Because people WILL judge you by what
and how you write, especially when they don't know you. Let me give you some
real life examples...

In my primary line of work, I occasionally help clients find employees and service
providers. If I receive a letter or email from someone that is poorly written
due to numerous grammatical, spelling and punctuation mistakes, I trash or delete
it and move on to the next candidate. They may be highly qualified for the position.
But if they cannot communicate that, or if they cannot at least present themselves
as an adult, they won't even get to first base. My clients would rather
train a B student who can communicate well, than deal with an A student who communicates
poorly.

On the side, I also occasionally teach law and negotiation. Previously, I accepted
only foreign students working in the USA. Last year, however, I began accepting
US students. I am amazed at how many people who were born and raised in the
USA write so poorly, particularly the younger generation. On average, my foreign
students write better than my American students. The texting habits these young
adults grew up with carry over into the classroom and business. As an instructor,
it is not my job to teach English or writing, nor is it my job to decipher a
poorly written mess. And it DOES affect their grades. Very much so.

So when people here comment about your poorly written posts, they are not putting
you down. Most are genuinely trying to help. But that desire to help quickly
evaporates and turns to negativity and distrust when you snap back about not
caring and lash out at those who tried to help you.

If you have not a care in the world and live a very comfortable life and are
so much more successful than other people, why are you wanting to sell/trade
a set for your list of items that you want, instead of just buying the things
you want.

I also do well in life, but if I wanted a big set from your list, I'd just
buy it.
I wouldn't go through the hassle of trading one first.

As it stands now, if anyone did have a set that meets your trading requirements,
they would probably insist in you shipping first and they would need to verify
it before sending your piece off.

And of course, they have to hope you don't use your phone to address the
package.

Earlier I was checking out this website and decided, why not? And decided to
publish a post about a set i felt was a special find. Never really utilized this
site for past transactions, but I like to try new things.... What happened is
you all were more interested in trying to insult me rather then actually pay
attention to the message behind it. You quickly ganged up and started picking
me apart like a bunch of school girls, gossiping and starting rumors. I'm
well aware you are all way better than anyone else and you're never wrong,
but maybe you shouldn't jump to conclusions and and make your judgments so
quick. Are you not capable of participating in a discussion forum in a positive
and productive manner? I'm disappointed in this community of hobbiests. Seems
that you may have forgotten the real reason for this site. Or maybe I misunderstood
it's purpose as a result of my lack of intelligence you all were so quick
to label me with. I was hoping I found a group of people who shared a common
interest that I could interact with and do business with. I see now that you
aren't here for comrodery or to share any interests. I have a set with special
circumstances that you don't just see laying around all the time. My intention
was to present it to people who might appreciate it and want to make an offer
or trade. Not because I can't afford to purchase the other sets I mentioned,
but because I enjoy bartering. For me, it adds to the overall experience and
satisfaction I seek from this hobby. It's part of the thrill. But perhaps
you have forgotten what thrills feel like. Excuse me if I find it more exciting
than simply sitting home and pushing the buy now button on the computer screen.
It takes all kinds, just keep that in mind. The way you all jumped at the chance
to try and discourage me and label me because of some missing commas and errors
my text to speech function on my phone produced. What were you hoping to accomplish
with your insults and assumptions? Do you feel you are some elite, private, gifted
few who are above all others? That your thoughts judgments mean anything in the
real world? We're on a lego fan website. Remember? I would hope we could
all play nice and get along. Take a step back and realize that there's a
lot more out there then what you see in your little world you're consumed
with. I will not entertain any childish feedback you are planning to give. It
would be a waste of my time and attention. But if there are any mature lego fans
who might be interested in my rare set, you can send me a private message. I
already expect these unhappy people to lash out in hopes that badmouthing me
will make them feel more comfortable in their own skin. Because I don't feel
I have anything to prove. Just doing what I enjoy. And regardless of what you
think or believe, I'm going to keep doing what I enjoy. Hope you all have
a pleasant day.

Hi,

you are absolutely right in many things you say. It is not nice when you feel
like you've been attacked.

However, just read this thread again and imagine your first response to the punctuation
comment wasn't "Ok sure and if I wanted and English teacher I would go back
to college" but "I am sorry, I used voice to text from my phone. I'll put
in some punctuation now so you can all read it easier".

I am German and English is not my first language. It was VERY hard indeed to
read your postings. And it was your answer to a post that was meant to be helpful
that started the discussion.

Additionally I would like to say that I very much appreciate that you took the
time to use punctuation in your last post.

This isn't a lego fan website, it is a lego sales website. There is a difference.

If you want to make a trade or want people to make you an offer, then do like
all other sellers, and open a store. That way, you pay the fees that all other
sellers pay when sales are made. You don't deal behind PMs to avoid fees
and avoid dealing in the open.

I doubt anyone would purchase it though. Someone with no feedback, a dormant
account, no history of buying or selling, listing a high value set isn't
likely to get a sale. Especially when they want to do it by PM rather than through
a store. If you are dishonest enough to do it without paying fees to BL, then
you are dishonest enough to not send the set.

If you enjoy the thrill, why haven't you bought or sold anything since joining?

Really??? It seems to me that several people actually tried to help you clarify
your message and make yourself look more trustworthy. But instead of taking
their good advice, you got snappy, defensive and chose to play the victim. That
is one other red flag to me as a potential buyer or trader. Because if you do
that here in the forum I am inclined to believe you may behave the same way if
there is a problem with this set when I receive it.


Reread the following... It is not "insults"; it is helpful advice.

"I also find it hard to read your post. If you do what Smron suggested, you might
actually see more people interested. Is that not what you want?"

"As a buyer, I am interested in dealing with a seller who has the maturity, intelligence
and ability to properly communicate with me about (1) any possible large deal
like this and (b) any problems that may arise. When I see extremely poor grammar
and snappiness from a seller, it suggests to me that he has none of these things
that I consider essential for safe problem-free transacting."

"You're on an international forum, you're grammar might be quite easely
readable by native English readers/speakers, it simply IS NOT when people who's
primary language isn't English. ... when it comes down to relationships in
sales, buying and trades, respecting a certain level of 'decent grammar'
will get you a lot further as it gives proof of a certain degree of maturity,
which is required to bring 'deals' to a good end..."

"Let me try to again patiently explain why communication skills and perceived
maturity DO matter - here and in real life. On BrickLink, you must be 18 or
older to buy and sell. When you write like a 14-year old whose life revolves
around texting, you come across as a minor who should not be here in the first
place. Many of us buyers (and sellers) adamantly refuse to do business with
minors or buyers/sellers who don't exhibit a minimal level of adulthood and
maturity. That feeling is reinforced when the seller gets snappy and defensive
when people here take the time to help them communicate better and present themself
as a better more capable seller or person with whom to transact. ... So when
people here comment about your poorly written posts, they are not putting you
down. Most are genuinely trying to help. But that desire to help quickly evaporates
and turns to negativity and distrust when you snap back about not caring and
lash out at those who tried to help you."

"I just read this thread again and imagine your first response to the punctuation
comment wasn't 'Ok sure and if I wanted and English teacher I would go
back to college' but 'I am sorry, I used voice to text from my phone.
I'll put in some punctuation now so you can all read it easier'. ...
I am German and English is not my first language. It was VERY hard indeed to
read your postings. And it was your answer to a post that was meant to be helpful
that started the discussion."

quick. Are you not capable of participating in a discussion forum in a positive
and productive manner? I'm disappointed in this community of hobbiests. Seems
that you may have forgotten the real reason for this site. Or maybe I misunderstood
it's purpose as a result of my lack of intelligence you all were so quick
to label me with. I was hoping I found a group of people who shared a common
interest that I could interact with and do business with. I see now that you
aren't here for comrodery or to share any interests. I have a set with special
circumstances that you don't just see laying around all the time. My intention
was to present it to people who might appreciate it and want to make an offer
or trade. Not because I can't afford to purchase the other sets I mentioned,
but because I enjoy bartering. For me, it adds to the overall experience and
satisfaction I seek from this hobby. It's part of the thrill. But perhaps
you have forgotten what thrills feel like. Excuse me if I find it more exciting
than simply sitting home and pushing the buy now button on the computer screen.
It takes all kinds, just keep that in mind. The way you all jumped at the chance
to try and discourage me and label me because of some missing commas and errors
my text to speech function on my phone produced. What were you hoping to accomplish
with your insults and assumptions? Do you feel you are some elite, private, gifted
few who are above all others? That your thoughts judgments mean anything in the
real world? We're on a lego fan website. Remember? I would hope we could
all play nice and get along. Take a step back and realize that there's a
lot more out there then what you see in your little world you're consumed
with. I will not entertain any childish feedback you are planning to give. It
would be a waste of my time and attention. But if there are any mature lego fans
who might be interested in my rare set, you can send me a private message. I
already expect these unhappy people to lash out in hopes that badmouthing me
will make them feel more comfortable in their own skin. Because I don't feel
I have anything to prove. Just doing what I enjoy. And regardless of what you
think or believe, I'm going to keep doing what I enjoy. Hope you all have
a pleasant day.


Great response, people on here take this site way to serious. If this site is
just a business site to you and not a fan site, why are you looking in the forum
anyway, especially in trades? If someone's grammar isn't up to your standards,
don't read it and move on. No adult wants some internet grammar police telling
them how they should be posting.

If it were me, I would have just taken the time to type it out on your phone
or.... a computer, rather than continuing with speak to text, since the effort
to say comma, or period is too taxing.

Had you formatted a post by typing, either originally or after the constructive
criticism came in, you would have reduced this to a few posts.

Why the 'attack' (as you see it)
The site is for adults, 18 or older to ethically buy, sell or even trade.

Since you haven't done business on bricklink, you may not know a few things.
1) Despite most sellers and buyers being great, there are people who scam on
this site, like others, on both the buying side and the selling side. This includes
stealing pictures from the internet and using them as their own.
2) Sometimes minors want to be on this site, regardless of the age description.
Some want to do ethical business and some don't. Those that do sometimes
find it hard to do both sides of transactions if it gets too much.
3) some just read social media posts about the value of Lego and just want in.


So, when you came in with your amazing find, pictures (which could be from anyone)
and your (admitted) laziness in the speak to text post, people said you could
do a few things to seem more professional and legitimate.

But you didn't, you spent time talking into your phone for one run on sentence,
spewing your personal success and affluence and even comparing yourself to people
you don't know.
Just like a child would pretending to be an adult.

You made references to kids, a big house, no mention of a job, just like a child
would.

You said the 'love of bartering' is what stops you from buying a set
and interests you in trading, just like someone who really never intends to trade
would do.

But that love of bartering still didn't encourage you to actually take the
time to type out a complete sentence.


As Thor said, he would look for professionalism in communication as a strong
indicator of the success of a transaction.

I said previously that your intro into the forum would either put you at that
suspicious level (at worst) or in the position that no one will send your side
of the trade until their side is received; which I can tell you, is really frustrating,
because you don't know if you are being scammed.


The last thing about the site that you may not know is that a small % of people
that are registered read the forums, so by not having a store or not proactively
approaching people who have the sets you want, your exposure to someone willing
to do your trade will be minimal.

Hi Jeremy,

If you're hoping to trade, you might get more interest on Bricklink if you
open a store and list the items you're looking to trade. It might also be
advisable for you to list a few smaller, less expensive items as well, even just
to build up a number of positive feedbacks. There may not be a lot of people
who are willing to engage in a trade with someone without any feedback, and this
would take care of that.

Anyway, best-of-luck in finding someone to make a deal with.

Cheers,

Ron
