    Well you can if you have sold a number of them it's polite to update the photos but not required

    I can’t see why that would need to be a thing... you’ve already proved you have them, why would that suddenly change that would require a whole new photo.

    It's optional as I said to update some users are particular about their posts etc.

    I have a quick question:
    The Rules say that If you are interested in a toy, you should start discussing openly in the post and when its confirmed you should change to PM. But if a potential customer writes you directly via PM, is that also allowed?
    Or have I misunderstood something?:confused:

    Not a moderator, but to my understanding the public messages help everyone to get a better picture of the situation. You're allowed to use private communications, but it would be nice to at least keep everyone involved about what toys are on hold, sold, how high offers are done and so on.

    Yes that is perfectly fine to talk to a buyer if they PM you first. Just as @Lynx puts it, it's best to keep users in the loop about what is happening with your sales, but if a buyer talks to you first about a toy(s) for sale and you sell it to them just make sure that you mark the toy(s) that were sold in your post and put a message saying who you sold the toy(s) to. :)

    I personally don't respond to private messages regarding toy sales because no one else sees it...but if they are going to purchase it has to be publicly agreed upon because a notorious scammer (wolfskins) that's how they'd get their victims would be through pm messages so that's the biggest reason why it is recommended to get public knowledge of each sale. So there's less chance of getting screwed over. So in my own experience I do make sure they are publicly claimed prior to purchasing.

    I recently bought an item last week but the seller has yet to ship it. I've contacted him several times and he's replied each time claiming to ship the item (trying not to get caught). How long before I call it quits and start trying for a refund or getting a mod?

    From what is sounds like, he may not ship your toy. Giving excuses and prolonging the shipping is a pretty good sign of scamming. I would just recommend to try and get your money back.

    I assumed you used Paypal, you can easily dispute the purchase and get your money back if you used the Goods and Services option.

    If you would like to you can PM me about the user and I can confront him about this.
