Arrow Thread for new people :)

This thread is just a few quick bullet points regarding this forum, mainly for new people. Sure, I was new once, and I had to learn a lot of things the hard way...

If you're new to the forum, and new to stealth, please take the following very seriously:

Forum etiquette can be hard to learn... when sending someone a personal message, or "pm" do not delete the quoted text from the previous trail of messages. This is very rude, and also makes it hard for the person you're communicating with to keep up with a conversation. We're all here to help, and doing this very easy thing will help me(us) communicate with you better.
Reached your pm limit? Buy the Stealth Book! It goes up!

If you haven't purchased eBay Stealth, do so now! It's the best 37 dollars money can buy! I don't mind answering questions, but the stealth guide has a wealth of knowledge you can benefit from. Not only regarding ebay, but eBay Stealth works for many other sites as well. It will help you open your eyes and answer many questions you haven't even thought of yet.

No, paypal cannot see the name on your bank account!!!! The best way to withdraw funds is to add a bank account to paypal, and withdraw that way. The wal-mart money card is no good for stealth purposes. What bank accounts work? There is a long list in the stealth guide, and it's discussed many times in the subscriber section! How do you get into the subscribers area? BUY THE Stealth Book!

Don't be worried to open new bank accounts for stealth puposes! There are literally thousands of banks across the world that will work with stealth, and they all want your business! You wont' throw up red flags to open a new checking account. People do it all the time!

It's a forum... a venue for open discussion... however this doesn't mean it's a place to come tell everyone you know what's what. We all learn from new ideas, but please realize you're dealing with people with a vast amount of knowledge from all walks of life. You'd be surprised at how much you can learn by browsing old threads, and asking for help. Courtesy and patience goes a long way.


That's all for now


Thanks

Let's hope first arrivals take this in. One other piece of PM etiquette - when replying with the quotes of the previous message either put your message at the end or beginning of the quote so that it is separate to the quotations. I've had newbies PM me with their message anywhere and it's been a search for it in the quotes.

One other piece of etiquette is NOT to make the thread title
'Urgent, Help me'
Big turn off unless you are reporting your own death

Haha.... yes. Urgent.... emergency, NOW.... these are not appropriate for stealth.

If death is eminent, this is the wrong forum

I just got an idea... emergency stealth!

Patience is a requirement in this business.

LOL I'm just not seeing this.

Good stuff but I disagree with:

Quote:
when sending someone a personal message, or "pm" do not delete the quoted text from the previous trail of messages. This is very rude, and also makes it hard for the person you're communicating with to keep up with a conversation.
I don't think it's rude at all to delete the quoted message. If I delete text it's probably because it's so long that it wont let me add more because of the text limit in PM's. People have done it to my messages and I took no offense to it what's so ever. That sounds more like a pet peeve to me.

Sure sure.... you are limited to 5000 characters in a pm, so sometimes you have to. I'm talking about the people that delete ALL of the text ALL the time. When you get 50 pm's a day, it's hard to remember people and subjects.

Very true. Some people expect you to remember their life's story after one message, but they are really just one out of dozens daily. Oddly I have this problem more on YM. I get contacted by people who go into a full conversation without even letting me know who the hell they are like I just got YM and they were the only person I added. lol

And I don't mind helping people, I just ask that quoted text not be deleted if not communicating via email.

Basic email etiquette

Another part on PM/email etiquette. I'm happy to help people out when I can, I'm not marking people on grammar and punctuation but some goes a long way with politeness. And I'll admit that something like this:

Quote:
hi madsam. i've read a lot of your posts on amazon and they are more than informative. i have a question that i hope you can answer...
Is more likely to get a response than:

Quote:
hooooooow the **** did you..........
*Both examples of recent PMs received.

Far more important that a newbie make a sensible post.
Over-worrying about the style of a pm should be a non-issue.

No smileys as part of a thread title are needed. They do not post.

Changing country flag is a NO NO. Flag is the country of registration NOT dreams

No over-worrying about the style of a PM, just saying what's more likely to get a response.

^^^Yes, perhaps a forum suggestion should be the option for the mods to be able to move something to another forum.

I'm new to this forum, but have found it to be extremely informative. What a lifesaver for people who've been GOT by ebay and paypal. After losing a 1000+ FB account it's good to find a place with others who've experienced the same thing.
There is plenty of info on this forum, but for anyone new, like me, you really need to have 'Stealth Ebay' to provide a framework so the information will be understandable.
It would be like taking a class without having the textbook. The notes on the chalkboard can only get you so far.
