AVForums have this and the feedback score only appears in the trading sections. I'm not sure what forum software they use though.

I can't remember tbh. I think shedders and lonely angel were worse, with multiple failed trades, MM I am still trying to give the benefit of the doubt but just can't.

It's incredible, the guy failed to obtain and retain proof of postage twice and was going to do it a third time before reneging on that and disappearing, weren't going to allow that to drag on forever.

well this magicmarker looks like he's pushed him close, but lonely angel is/was definitely the worst. Took what Vesp did to a whole new level. Kept disappearing for weeks/months whenever someone made a comment bout what he had done, then returned and made threads crying and apologising and promising he would sent his secret santa choice (cora IIRC) something but never did. Then got banned finally for having an alt account (that he conversed with as lonely angel and used this new account to flirt in the relationship thread as a girl :dread: :dread: :dread: )

Jimmy came back after a long period of absence, returned like normal then just failed to send something someone had paid for. Got a bit of leeway given his history of been a solid forumite, but kept ignoring people on twitter asking him about it and eventually got banned.

Lonely Angel failed to send out his Secret Santa gift to someone and lied about it (I think)

Shedders left the forum for ages, returned to mainly use the trading forum to sell items, had the money sent to him via PayPal and never bothered sending them and promptly left the forum. He actively avoided all forms of communication the mods and the sellers tried (PMs, email, Twitter, Facebook message which he read but didn't reply). I've been keeping an eye on him on rllmuk and if I ever see him try and trade him there I'll be outing him.

Oh Jimmy
Jimmy Shedders
You were one of us
Til you bled us
You bled us
Why?

Why did you bleed us?
Don't you need us?
Won't you heed us?
You were family.

Jimmy Shedders
Jimmy Bled us
Jimmy Eat World
You Ate Our World
GRcade No More
Jimmy No More
No More in a Shed
The Shed has burned down
Down to the ground

You were part of the furniture
A GRcade classic
A Legacy you had.
Now smashed
Smashed. James.

James. Jim. Jimmy.
People could say your name
And be healed
A smile on a face
A Child's laugh
Our Jimmy

Our Jimmy NO MORE

No love
No love
No love
No love

Jimmy Shedders
Jimmy Bled Us
Gone to RLLMUK
And he didn't look back

Oh, and the Pokemon thread that he made. Omega Diamond Ruby something.


I'll take the Pokemon thread if it's available?

SPEED EDIT: Was Lonely Angel perma-banned for not sending me a secret santa gift? :lol:

Wow.I didn't know that about Shedders at all. I just thought he'd left the place.

I've been noticing Jimmy Shedders on Rllmuk for a while now, frustrating as he generally tends to post easily likable memes and gooseberry fool which earn him a decent reputation with that forum's system (Post rating, for those that don't browse there). Just waiting on the moment when he does get called out by someone.

I think Mockmaster's words say more than words ever could.

But, yeah, we have had a Trading Post for possibly nearly a decade now. We can count on one hand how many scams we've suffered. And that hand doesn't even need to have all it's digits either.

It is fantastic that we are all so trusting of one another and it is testament to our community. This also means that anyone who abuses this trust is sent out into the wilderness and away from the gaming oasis that is Suzz's monthly gaming clear out.

Yeah I've noticed him doing that a lot too, I'm not a big fan of that reputation system as it's really open to abuse. I also remember Shedders was trying to blag free codes off of people from one of the 3DS game promotions.

Jimmy Shedders was a funny one.

He seemed like such a lovely chap with his family. But deep down, we suspected he was robbing his Gran.

What a little gooseberry fool, he always seemed like a massive weirdo. How about 6 months as a registered user and X number of posts before you can view the Trading Post? It's by no means fool proof but it's a decent precaution that most forums take in their trading sections.

damn straight, i trust you guys loads on here as we have all been around on the GR and grcade forums for so long. I am actually shocked by all this and didn't realise Jimmy Shedders did what he did. MM on the other hand was a little weird though. The only thing when i am selling something on here or trading is don't ask me how much for the box.

In many instances it does stifle discussion, look at their threads on the this stupid Zoe Quinn thing recently, where any form of oppositional view is not met with attempts to educate but a parade of verbal put-downs and red arrows pointing down that accomplish nothing. I saw Jimmy with the 3DS codes as well, I'm waiting on him starting a thread/responding to one in their trading post and seeing how that pans out.

Does anyone have a link to the MagicMarker debacle?
