If you do join amibay you need to be prepared for admins mood, if you ever give a response to their womit, be prepared to be banned.

Besides, I don't think that amibay actually follow the law, where you know, a buyer has the right to change his or hers mind.

"The law?" Really..
The worst they can do is ban someone. Even if you think they banned someone for totally wrong reasons, it's not really a legal issue...

As has been said, some people like them, some don't.
I like Amibay..
Haven't been there in a bit, but that's more to protect my pocketbook.. ;-)

to all; Thanks for the info...
I finally made it to amibay,
But, I will stay aware of the rules and different systems that exist in the great amiga.

I am only an once in a while buyer, I've only sold amiga stuff to fellow SACC folks face to face. I like that better. The SACC folks have been part on my amiga world for years.

thanks,
M

If you like internet freedom, or if you like ideas of freedom in general stay the hell away from the power obsessed, boys club of mods on Amibay. Be prepared for them to internet stalk you, invade your privacy, and attempt to dictate what you do, who you do it with and when and where.

Like good ole times in Berlin.

And no,i'm not being funny this is how they are. VERY ANTI AMIGA. It has the FRONT of being real amiga but its mainly a bunch of HOARDERS trading hw with eachother.

I've been a member of a simular forum for a specific Car(Auto) brand. It was run by a car club and was very autocratic. But sign-up was nowhere near as laborious.
But I can understand why you want to be sure of a person's identification on the internet. Especially when money is changing hands and there are so may shonks out there in the Amiga computer arena.(area). But IMO once you are in and verified there's no need for it to translate to general operations. Certainly not Berlin of old though. Because I'm pretty sure death is an option not exercised by Amibay.

As another person who has been banned here before (along with Magnetic and Franko) I tend to agree with Mag on this.
It takes more to offend an A.org moderator (although it can be pretty easily done).
And Amibay may use an Amiga oriented tag, but they trade anything computer related.
I'd rather just use Ebay.
At least there I get buyer protection.

Nobody is talking about anyone using another name or "identification" what are you talking about? I'm talking about the nazi like tactics and privacy invasion that is POLICY and DAILY ROUTINE for the people that run this silly site.

They most not have any authority in their real life because they sure turn into Khadaffis and Stalins on that site!

Note: I've been an amigan since 1988, I believe in the community and support almost all amiga websites NOT THIS ONE AMIBAY IS NOT THE SPIRIT OF AMIGA. ITS THE SPIRIT OF THE AMIGA HOARDER

If you can't understand the flow of a thread beyond your own posts I'm not going to explain it for you, or explain myself. Putting it simply, my response to your post was in relation to the "boys club" comment only. I'm guess you block people which results in the non contextual experience in a thread, the alternative that springs to mind is possible as well I guess, either way your problem not mine.
But separately, Nazi has connotations beyond your ego magnetic, the link is tenuous at least if not consistent with your comprehension.

I see desiv's sarcasm and raise you a straight.

The value of something is in it's demand. It's not based on purchasers opinion.

Good to see you on AmiBay, glad we have sorted out that account issue and I am pleased to see my first post going to help out a fellow member =)


@thread

I have to admit,its the first I have read that my efforts are anti-Amigan, although I am sure my wife had called me worse


Oh well I shall rest my modest efforts on those thousands of AmiBayers that use, enjoy and make AmiBay what it is. I know the rules and guidelines are perhaps too much for some, but remember these rules are made by all the staff - whom are also members - there is over 20 staff members helping to develop AmiBay for the better of its users, we then have another process that see the sites 20 odd VIP's rattify these rules and guidelines as well.

While we are predominately a classifieds trading site - a truly amazing community has grown from, I am quite humbled to be a small part of it.

Amibay wasn't established to promote internet freedom. New members agree to follow a set of rules which limit internet freedom in order to support the Amibay community of traders, hackers and knowledge seekers.

If you were banned for breaking those rules then you should blame the person most responsible... yourself!

I just tried to sign up for amibay.com

I completed the first form and received an registration email, clicked the link in the mail and then completed the second form to which I received the message:

Quote:
Registration denied, this forum runs an active policy of not allowing spammers. Please contact us via the "Contact Us" page link if you believe this is in error
So I click "Contact us" and get told:

Quote:
You must first accept the Forum Rules to be able to send e-mails!
What a complete joke of a site!

If it takes more than a couple of clicks and a registration form to join a forum it's not worth joining. I'll stick to selling on ebay!

@Zetro
Yep! All good. I learning my way around the site. Gain knowledge.

One item, what does it mean "paypay gift or pay fee"
I thought amibay didn't have fees?

At this time I don't plan on selling so I have to figure out how to buy.

Paypal charges fees to receive money.

When buying something outside of ebay most sellers request that the buyer pays the fee by selecting the "Gift" option on the paypal "send payment" page.
