    Neutral is the gracious backing out option :) It exists for this reason, so you can back out of an accepted trade.

    I think it is important to record it though, while no one is going to blink at the fact you had this neutral trade, if a user starts getting a long history of them, it becomes a warning like any other feedback :)

    Ok so I'll tell him just to select positive so we both come out looking good, gotcha.

    I know that his pin changed twice, but I'm sure he'd appreciate it if you changed the "Erika Sadsad" pin to "Gavin Greco", as he is now neither married nor female identified. Maybe them we'll get pinnys with more glitter.

    Would that also apply to his hobby pin, which is still labelled under Erika?

    The hobby pin should be Gavin Greco but the Staff head was released as Erika and is still listed as such on the official Pinny Arcade website, I think for the sake of consistency and to prevent confusion it makes more sense to keep the pin as it's released name. Most of the time the Pinny Pals naming reflects the official Pinny Arcade names but occasionally when pins (usually third party) are announced we aren't given an official name for them so we try to come up with the most logical one possible (eg we called the second Garruk pin "Corrupted Garruk" but PA ended up listing it as "Dark Garruk")

    What Duckie said, hobby pin will be renamed.

    In general, the staff pins are unlikely to match the official list if they keep releasing them in the format name + series#. We'll be adding some sort of prefix like "hobby" to distinguish them.

    The Aus pin quest (http://hw1.pa-cdn.com/pa/assets/uploads/pinnyarcade/paxaus2014_pinquest.pdf) shows her original staff head with the name Gavin, so personally I think we should change it.

    I'm sure I've heard all the other staff referring to her as "her", so I kinda assumed that's what we'd do.

    You know, in general. Unrelated to pins.



    Also back to "neutral" on the site, perhaps there's a better name we could use for it if we still want to keep track of it? Or if we actually want to keep a neutral rating for actual trades, maybe a 4th option for it? "Cancelled by both parties" or something.

  • grgemonkeygrgemonkey Registered User regular
    That's what neutral means though :P More options would just make it more confusing.

    Don't worry so much about it :) That's why it's not a prominent score, it is only visible in the "full feedback" and it has no bearing on your positive:negative score. I plan to allow a comment to be left if a neutral or negative score is being marked in the future and that will allow you to have infinite options because you can just explain it, e.g. "cancelled by both parties".

    Xmas set is up.

    Also after weighing all points of view, it seemed reasonable to change both Erika pins to Gavin, apologies if that bothers any purists but it seems the most courteous thing to do.

    I really hope we don't have to start dancing around pronouns. Whatever gender you identify with is totally your business and I'm more than happy to accommodate, but I don't intend to wait for a press release. Can we all agree that everything is cool and that no one gets mad about pins? PINs4L.

    Hey grgemonkey, I think that was the most courteous thing to do. The change was fairly recent and its news to everyone including the PA staff. I'm not quite sure what the details are, and it really doesn't matter. He identifies as Gavin, and I'm glad we can all agree to respect that as far as pin trading goes.

    I feel like emailing Brian about changing that as well as corrupted garruk... They're both somewhat frustrating x.x

    Go for it! The final pin name isn't an issue for me, my brain mostly just wants consistency, there's nothing worse than that moment of nausea you feel when someone uses a different pin name to what we're used to while you try to figure out what pin you could possibly have failed to collect and why you haven't heard about it before :P

    Alright! At long last emails have arrived! Everyone party.

    They send for the following events:
    - New offer
    - New messages (including status updates and modification updates, which are listed specifically)
    - Accepted or rejected offer
    - New claims on your trading post offer
    - Accepted or rejected claims you've made on a trading post offer

    And maybe something else.

    Q&A:
    Q: Can I turn them off?
    A: Nope, not yet anyway. Bare with me, building things like settings screen takes a surprising amount of time, let me run this for a bit to test then you'll have some control :)

    Q: Where's the email!?!?!
    A: Emails are sent out every hour in batches. This lets multiples of the same type of email group up in to one email and be less annoying.

    Q: NO! Really, WHERE'S THE EMAIL?!?!
    A: Check your spam, make sure '[email protected]' is allowed to send you emails.

    Q: I really really didn't get an expected email
    A: Ok fine, report the details to me :)

    If it bugs out horribly, we'll deal with it as it happens but so far I've sent out 30 odd emails and it seems ok, so fingers crossed.

    Is it possible when you get a rejected claim that the person has to enter a reason? (its currently optional).

    I claimed a deal that someone had posted, and they then rejected it..why would you post it if you didn't want to go through with it? /confused

  • grgemonkeygrgemonkey Registered User regular
    They could have multiple claims on it, in which case, having accepted a different person, the remaining receive rejections. If it's still available though, possibly your location vs theirs.

    There wouldn't be too many reasons, so I don't think it's necessary for it to be entered. You can assume it's: accepted another claim, location, removed the offer/changed their mind or feedback score (doubt that's applicable to you).

    I will be adding "reasons" to direct offers though and also it will be added if you're leaving negative/neutral feedback.

    There will be other improvements to the Trading Post, however at the moment people can trade pretty ok, so it's lower on the priority list.
