I use it (specially for the big sellers that have large feedbacks that are hard to wade through!) to be able to see only the negs/neutral/retracted feedbacks. It's probably saved me a fortune in avoiding the bad sellers. You can go directly to the site, or use the browser plugins. Checks what kind of feedback that has been left for others, as well as received.

It provides a useful tool to compare w/all the positive feedbacks so that buyers can make a more informed decision @ bidding. If I were a seller, I'd use it to check on bidders on high-ticket auctions too. Let's ya weed out the chaff, both ways.

And it's free!

Just as a FYI for the group here ... for future use.

LOL! Chong - that must have been my delivery! But I only got one box with the four corms. No bonuses.
She wrote me a couple of days ago asking me to post positive feedback, but that will have to wait until I see some growth.
I take the feedback thing very seriously. For all of the stuff I've purchased on eBay, I've been lucky. I recently had a bad experience with a seller who I've purchased from several times. They sent me the wrong item. I wrote numerous times for WEEKS, with no response. Then I left negative feedback. Heard from them almost immediately. They said they would send the proper item. Several days later they posted negative feedback FOR ME! I was totally livid! (Especially since my feedback was perfect) When I wrote them about it they said it was their policy to leave negatives for anyone who left them negatives. But they would retract if I did. Feedback Blackmail!

Nucci60, I do hope you get some new growth!


Thanks Pithy_Cherub for that link! As much as I use eBay, that is a very useful site!

You're more than welcome! I luuurves me some eBay ... but I've gotten burnt a couple of times. That's when I tripped over the feedback site - it's been quite useful.

I'm still stalking bananas on eBay, though. There are some most excellent sellers to buy from, just stepping carefully!

Nucci,
Fianally! Got my 5 construction debris, oops, corms. These look like sections of a giant taro root (Hawaiian poi). Actually, they're 5 sections cut from the rhizome. Tha'ts probably the problem that you had. Because there is a large exposed portion was not yet dry and you planted the corm in the soil, fungus/mold just set in and rotted the corm. What I will do with mine is rinse the open wound portions of the corms with 8% hydrogen peroxide, then dust it with fungicide before planting them in moist sterile soil. I'll keep you posted on their progress.

BTW, did you ever get yours??? If not, better bug her about them. I just did that.

Chong, I ended up getting a $5 dollar refund to cover partial shipping. I contacted her about a week ago and was ready to drop the whole matter when she responded that everyone got their order and I got mine on jan6. that got me going. I told her I knew of one other that didn't and she got furious. She accused me of contacting members on ebay and she contacted all her buyers. she even contacted Anna. I told her we only discussed this on a forum and were free to do so. I am banned from her future auctions and was reported to AOBLACKLIST (don't know what that is), so I guess my life is over. Good luck with your 'nanas . I messed up mine, I guess.

thanks for the advice, Tammy but you know I am kind of tired of the whole mess. It was not a big deal, just a couple of plants but it turned into a big deal, which I hate. I did not pay for insurance so she didn't even have to pay me the five dollars. I cannot bid on any of her auctuons, but then again why would I want to? Thanks again.

Default Re: saw this on E Bay (Granny's corms)

Well,
I guess I won't find out if the corms would actually grow. The weather is perfect today so I went to get the corms to plant. I had them stored in a box in the garage. Gone! I looked everywhere. Then I realized that my husband had cleaned the garage a couple of weeks ago. Apparently he thought it was just a box full of papers. I guess that's what I get for storing my stuff in "his" domain. LOL!

Sorry to hear about the goldfingers. Would have liked to how they grew fo you. The one i did recieve was potted in dry soil and put under lights with my other nanas, but rotted out with no water. ^The others I ordered, well we all know that story.
