Hello!
I have a question: could my activity (and the way I carry myself) on the forum
be driving away customers? I never spent much time on the forum, but once I started,
someone added me to their Least Favorite list! 馃槀
I never did say anything that would drive anybody away except for when I asked
for advice on separating my bricks? Maybe they thought that made me a bad seller?
Idk! All I want to know is do I have to walk on eggshells on here, or just not
care? Does my activity make people think I鈥檓 not a good seller? Thanks!

There are all kinds of reasons people add sellers to their least favorite list.
It could be from something in the forum, but probably not. You store's
terms say that you don't ship to Alaska or Hawaii, so it's possible that
your store comes up when someone is searching for sellers in the USA, but if
they're in Alaska or Hawaii, then they might put you on their least favorite
list so that you won't show up in their searches anymore.

I mean like I dunno. I love to talk on the forums and it hasn't had any negative
issues against me or my buying.

Good Luck!

No - sincerely.

Forum is to say what you think (reasonably).

Some may not like it, but those are probably the ones you don't want to encounter
anyway.
And others will appreciate; so, give your best for them.

Yes. Anyone who posts here regularly has at least one of these. They're doing
you a favor - why would you want to deal with someone so petty? You don't
need customers like these.


  I never did say anything that would drive anybody away except for when I asked
for advice on separating my bricks?

Who knows?

  Maybe they thought that made me a bad seller?
Idk! All I want to know is do I have to walk on eggshells on here, or just not

I don't think you should care. It's a common occurrence.

Strangely I'm still at 0, but hope that saying this doesn't adds

The stop list is the other way around, they are preventing you from being a buyer
in their store.

The buyers that don't want to see your store are the ones under Members list
me as a favorite store - Least

Very few prospective customers are forum readers, not regular readers anyhow.
But putting that aside, why would you care? Be yourself and speak your mind at
all times. Don鈥檛 鈥渨alk on eggshells on here鈥 my friend, stomp on them!

If it is indeed personality-clashing that should get you placed on least favorite,
ignore or stop lists, take it for what it is; petulance. Though you鈥檒l seldom
know with any certainty the real reasons, therefore it鈥檚 useless concerning yourself
over it.

You will find with more time here, these lists mean little to nothing to the
serious selling member. In other words, no correlation between loss of buyers
and viewpoints expressed here. In my experience anyway.

I enjoy reading your posts, hope you'll keep them coming as they are (maybe
even edge-it-up some )

Feedback speaks volumes and this is more important than anything you say in the
forum. If you believe your shared opinion is honest, fair and relevant and you
treat people with equal respect this is all you can really do but don't be
afraid to challenge people who are rude, unhelpful and condescending.... Calling
a few people out or expressing a difference of opinion is sometimes necessary
and won't have any noticeable effect on you or your store providing its others
that are acting inappropriately and not yourself. Either way only a very tiny
percentage of users routinely read the forums anyway and unless its a really
hot topic the average post/thread probably only gets around 50-100 views (Baring
in mind many will consist of repeat clicks!)

Welp, update: I just checked my list of how many people list me as their least
favorites, and since I posted this on the forum, the list went from 1 to 7鈥.
Is someone messing with me?! 馃ぃ馃ぃ馃ぃ馃ぃ AND someone added me to their stop list!
WHAT DID I DO?!?! 馃ぃ

I can't speak as to why more people put you on their stop list. It doesn't
seem to make much sense. You haven't been here long enough to piss that many
people off, HA! Not that I have many stores on my stop list, but when I see restrictions,
handling fees, etc..that is the quickest way to my stop list. But why don't
you ship to Alaska or Hawaii? Maybe I'm wrong and misremembering as I have
only shipped a handful of orders to those states, but the shipping costs are
not crazy. I believe a 1-4 oz package costs less than $4 going to those states.
Someone correct me if I'm wrong about that.

handling fees, etc..that is the quickest way to my stop list. But why don't
you ship to Alaska or Hawaii? Maybe I'm wrong and misremembering as I have
only shipped a handful of orders to those states, but the shipping costs are
not crazy. I believe a 1-4 oz package costs less than $4 going to those states.
Someone correct me if I'm wrong about that.

Long story short: I don鈥檛 want to go through a hassle where someone buys a 2
cent part from Alaska, and then the cart would automatically calculate the shipping
to 5 dollars, and then I鈥檇 be out a lot of money. It鈥檚 really more of a hassle
then I am currently willing to handle. Soon I may change it, but until I can
get some more experience as a seller on bricklink, I won鈥檛 ship to those states.

Couple things you can do:

1 - establish a minimum order amount ($1, $5, $10 are popular choices)
2 - use a service that can give you commercial shipping rates (e.g. Pirate Ship)
3 - charge a small order handling fee for orders under a certain threshold

For myself, shipping to Alaska is no more expensive than shipping to California
($3.86 for 1st class 4oz or under).

Understand how silly it all is and please don't fret.

You are good, there are circa two dozen "forum dwellers" that are not. They will
be a presents here in some form in perpetuity, don't concern yourself with
these lists. As long as you continue to perform as an excellent BL vendor and
patron of other decent sellers here, who really cares about these types? Like
I said, it's petulance. Which is found in some degree in all of us.

If this type of thing concerns you, rethink or leave the forum. I'm
hoping you rethink.

I got stop listed for calling a seller out as a troll after a successful transaction
before. Their behavior resulted in a ban for another forum member. Long timers
know who I am talking about. Others have stop listed me for pointing out their
"terms" don't supersede consumer protection laws. It just shows me how shady
they are as sellers and I don't want to deal with them. People do what they
want, just ignore them and go on. Probably saves you some future grief.

I'm gonna "favorite" your store and ask a few in our SW collector's group
to do the same, see if we can't get that number for you. I'll also browse
your store, see if I can drop some coin too.

Thank you so much!

As it's obviously is a concern of yours, what is the other side of that same
coin; your store's "favorite" number?

2! 馃檭

I'm gonna "favorite" your store and ask a few in our SW collector's group
to do the same, see if we can't get that number for you. I'll also browse
your store, see if I can drop some coin too.

Go ahead and add another +1 but you have nothing I need ATM.

Good man. Thanks

Nah, I'm sure a lot of people think I am a bit of a troll. But I do sympathize
with him. Been there done that, could open a thrift shop with the t-shirts.
I haven't seen him post anything that should offend anyone. So if anyone
wants to add me to their stop list go right ahead. Someone will take my money
if you won't(anyone who stop lists me).

We've got you at 7 now, you'll get more. That said, these number should
not concern you moving forward. Try to understand that at some point

Seriously...

Both store name and showing a religious sign may chase a part of the buyers:

* the ones who think you should keep this for yourself,

* the ones who don't share the same religion, or worse, think yours isn't
the good one.

In short, and IMHO, it's not the more optimal commercial approach
But of course, if you don't care, do as you think.

Hoping it (sincerely) helps.
