Wii Update 3.3 Defeats Twilight Hack, Freeloader

thealpha This changes things (125 comments)

Until now I had no plans on hacking my Wii. Now that Nintendo is trying to prevent me from using my hardware as I see fit, I think I will. I can't be the only person who thinks this way.

Change to eBay terms look dangerous for buyers

thealpha thealpha writes  |  more than 6 years ago

thealpha (308746) writes "The part I find the most concerning is that buyers will only be able to leave positive feedback. What happens when a seller screws me on a deal? I think it will make it easier for scammers and end being a big negative for eBay. Below is an exceprt.
Your thoughts?

Feedback Changes The eBay Feedback system was designed to provide a simple, honest, accurate record of member experiences. Focusing on customer service includes doing everything we can to grow customer confidence in our sellers.

* Buyers will only be able to receive positive Feedback.
* Positive repeat customer Feedback will count (up to 1 Feedback from the same buyer per week.)
* Feedback more than 12-months old won't count towards your Feedback percentage.
* When a buyer doesn't respond to the Unpaid Item (UPI) process the negative or neutral Feedback they have left for that transaction will be removed.
* When a member is suspended, all their negative and neutral Feedback will be removed.
* Buyers must wait 3 days before leaving negative or neutral Feedback for sellers with an established track record, to encourage communication.
* All Feedback must be left within 60 days (compared to 90 days today) of listing end to encourage timely Feedback and discourage abuse.
* Buyers will be held more accountable when sellers report an unpaid item or commit other policy violations."
