Hey

I ordered the hot shot carnival from brick link and I received it damaged. The
boxes were completely crushed and creased on both lower corners. You could also
tell the box had been opened since the tape used to seal it was broken and the
inner box was in upside down.

I contacted bricklink about exchanging and Jacklyn responded that I should send
some photos and she would get the process started.

I sent those photos on June 15th and have not heard back since. I've sent
over half a dozen emails all have gone without reply.

Bricklink also changed the status of the order to "complete" when it wasn't,
and I'm pretty sure as the seller they shouldn't even have the ability
to do that.


So I started an NSS on July 19th, with the hope that it would elicit a response
however that has also been ignored.

Has anyone else had a similar issue, or been successful in exchanging anything
with BL and can give me advice on how the did it?

Thanks

Jaclyn doesn't work for Bricklink anymore. Bricklink is severely understaffed
so customer service takes a really long time. Several people have been posting
stories similar to yours. In the end, you will probably be ok. But it's well
known that on Bricklink, anything that requires human labour from Bricklink's
side takes super super long.

They obviously have plenty of time to monitor the forum and cancel posts they
do not like (even if they do not contain any offensive language at all), but
hardly any time for carrying out the essential customer service or fixing and/or
improving the website.

I don't think they don't spend that much time on that either (they have
Brickwilbo as a volunteer for moderation), or when they do, it's probably
in the admins' free time, just doing it because they don't want any trouble
if people start posting things that could be problematic. I think they lack paid
manpower in pretty much every area..

It is a shame that BL has lost any kind of respected customer service. That
is the real key of building a "community." That is being lost also. Bricklink
is not what it was. Successful companies usually become better as they grow
older, not hear. I am not sure that it is anyone's problem that volunteers
or works for BL. It is the lack of caring from those that pocket the profits.
I imagine everyone that actually works for BL has a job that should be handled
by 3-4 people. It is a shame that it is getting worse, not better. Obviously,
the management is more concerned about their bottom line, a good small company
gets a good bottom line by taking care of its customers. My personal opinion
is they do not care as long as they profit. The workers care, how many they
have actually that are paid I have no idea. I do imagine that volunteers do
most of the heavy lifting. They are compensated by other means, but still I
think it is a labor of love for then.
Oh well, it is what it is.

hi john you are of course, correct. I think you may have missed mp's comments
at Brickworld when he discussed community v business.many people who listened
to that felt the same way we and obviously so do you business comes first.

only time will tell how that is going to work out for them and a lot of older
members may not be around to see the outcome.

it is very obvious they aren't making the money some believe and are cutting
corners wherever and whenever they can

What is so sad is that they do not care enough to make changes. How many sellers

owners would be walking around in circles scratching their ass wondering what

to not even announce nor explain the dropping of sellers tools pretty much says

here. (knew Clark would come in handy one day)

Was there ever an explanation? I guess not, right? The number one thing that
was promised to us for years, the one thing that was always used as the future
prospect to make all current less important projects seem acceptable... suddenly
dropped...
That'd be hugely embarrassing to anyone involved, but as the cockpit is empty,
I guess there isn't anyone to be embarrassed about it

No, they are not.

At one time they were given breaks on their fees paid to BL. Did that end?
If so are you sure?

I know BO has these incentives to get people to help with the catalog etc. Also,
there is definitely no straight monetary compensation, as is obvious from StormChaser's

Whether there is any compensation in store fees or other "goodies", I can't
be certain, but I highly doubt it.

Yes, and I believe there have been other messages in the forum about it, so I’m
about 95% sure because the help page still says there’s a lowered fee for
sellers

But, well, help pages….
