For now on any threads regarding a complaint on a vendor,or a personal transaction involving another member will not be deleted. Even if the poster requests it. Instead the thread will get locked up as soon as the issue is resolved between the two parties..
I think( incuding the other mods) this is good because others will be able to do a search + research on that specific vendor or member, and determine if he or she wants to purchase from them. With threads being deleted like before. This would not be possible..
This only applies to real customers with real transactions. If the accused denies working with the complainer, then the complainer must provide proof of their allegations. The mods will then review all documentation provided and make a decision if the thread will remain.
Keep in mind though, if a company is being wrongly accused in wrongdoing, then the complainer will possibly be opening themselves up for a liable suit against them. If you have an issue with a vendor and have exhausted all options in getting it rectified, then by all means post your experience here. Just be prepared to show any documentation or proof when asked.
Vendors should also take note with this new rule. Our suggestion to both vendors and private sellers is to never let it get this far. Take care of your customers so you don't have to worry about this new rule.
I developed a product related to Viper. Today I come to forums to seek becoming a vendor and next thing you know some scamming banned douches user name was exactly as mine today... as random this situation is Domantas is one heck of a rare name to begin with. I was like wtf... Vendors, I need a new user name now and please reach out to me regarding becoming a vendor situation as contacts provided are down.
Go back to the gen 2 forum and look at two last damn threads...
One is my thread asking about vendor opportunity for a kick ass gen 2 product for this community and other thread right next to it says "Do not buy parts from Domantas". Are yoy fucking kidding me... That thread is related to some old Domantas's user, NOT ME. How am I an idiot? Douche...
I am not! I have nothing to do with this scammer other than the same user name! Believe it or not but before you talk trash about ME do your investigation. Talk shit about old Domantas as much as you want but you are getting into my nerves man when your posts are directed to me.
